Overview of available clinical trials of fish oil in depressive illness

EPA:DHA ratio# of trials / # positive trialsComment
2:1 ratio EPA:DHA or greater20/18One “negative” trial was in rapid cycling bipolar disorder, a rare and serious variant of bipolar disorder, which perhaps does not respond to EPA. Also, EPA dose was larger than doses subsequently shown to be ideal in dose-ranging trials (6000 mg EPA per day was used).
1.0 to 1.9:1 ratio EPA:DHA13/7Five of six “negative” trials showed significant benefit relative to baseline, but placebo group showed similar benefit, and therefore no difference of fish oil versus placebo.
More DHA than EPA13/2It appears oils with more DHA do not benefit symptoms of depression.
