I previously tried fish oil supplements in pill form about 6 months ago and they did not help my depression.
In the last three weeks I've tried again and have noticed a significant improvement in my depression, the differences being:
I now eat very low omega 6
I bought a more expensive brand in bottle form (carlsons)
I'm also taking them with probiotics in pill form (I read that taking these together is important)
I believe that omega 3s can cure depression (or massively alleviate it) but it does not work for many people because their omega 6 consumption is far too high to see any benefit (as I believe they fight it out?)
Anyway, thought I'd just bring this up as it's made the biggest difference for me so far, to the point where, i dont want to jinx it, but i really don't feel depressed at all anymore

I've also read that you need good quality, non-oxidised omega 3, for it to have a positive effect. There's an interesting mention on the Perfect Health Diet website about omega 3 working for a while, and then not working, due to insufficient antioxidants.
