benefit of flaxseed
Oct 20, 2002

Can you safely take flaxseed with the medication you take for AIDS? Thanks, Anne

Response from Dr. Aberg

Flaxseed oil is a source of omega-3 fatty acids. There are no known drug interactions or serious side effects that I am aware of. Just a reminder, flaxseed oil should be refrigerated at all times.
