Hey again. I had another vitamin question concerning effects with birth control.

Because birth control dries out my eyes (my eye doctor told me my eyes look like a desert) I was told by my eye doctor to take TheraTears Nutrition (omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids) supplements. He knows I am on the pill, but I told him I was on it to help with cycles (which is true, I am not sexually active).

However, I just want to make sure to ease my mind, does Omega-3 have any effect on birth control? I take it three times in the morning like the bottle says.

Any time you are questioning the effects of any medicine on birth control the best most informed person to ask is your pharmacist. But no, there's no reason to be worried here.
