Topping up with Omega-3 - does it work for depression?

Researchers from the Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis have been investigating the effectiveness of taking Omega-3 as well as antidepressants in a study of people with depression and heart disease. 122 people took part in the study. Half of them took sertraline and Omega-3 while the other half took sertraline and a placebo. The study found that after 10 weeks there was no difference between the group taking the Omega-3 and the group taking the placebo.
