    Be sure to tell your doctor that you are taking fatty acid supplements, since certain medications can interact with fatty acids. In addition, some medical conditions may call for higher than normal dosages of fatty acids. Your doctor can help you determine a dose that is right for you. It is especially important that your doctor know about any fatty acids you are taking should you require surgery, as high doses can lead to bleeding.
