When should I give my son fish oil? With or without food? And does it affect absorption of ADHD meds?
Sandy Newmark, M.D.
There is no research indicating that it makes a difference when the fish oil is given. It can be given in one or two doses. Fish oil does not seem to have any effect on the absorption of Focalin or Intuniv, or any of the ADHD medications, as far as we know. Finally, your son can take fish oil with or without food. The absorption rate is not affected in either case.
