I currently am taking Abilify (5mg) 1x/day and Dexedrine (5mg 3x3x3/day) for ADHD. Will taking Omega3 pills help as well? What about 5HTP for sleep? Either?
Hi--the omega 3's would be fine but I'd caution against taking 5HTP with your meds as it could lead to a serotonin syndrome problem. A better supplement for sleep would be valerian or melatonin but you should discuss any supplements with your doctor before taking them

Thank you. How many omega is okay to take?

1,000 mg per day is a good dosage
