M has been using the capsule form of Eye Q for about 18 months. He is very happy to take them (without anything to drink ) - although I know that they have proven a bit too big to swallow for some other kids.
There has been a marked improvement in his ability to concentrate, so we think it has been well worth the expense!
At least with Boots you can stock up using their 3 for 2 deal - buy in store or online. Three of the 180 capsules lasted approx. a year so only need to worry about that once a year!!!

I tell my little boy that he is getting his fish medicine. He has been taking it for a quite a while now and there is a very very notable difference in his behaviour and language.

I can't recommend highly enough the morepa mini. They come in a very small capsule which is very easy for a child to swallow. They can be opened up and the liquid (strawberry flavoured) put in drinks or yoghurts. But I'd say the capsules are small enough for this not to be necessary. Also, they only need to take two a day as the concentration of omega 3's are very high in each capsule.
Also, it takes about 3 months for them to reach full affect, so it's important to remain patient while waiting for improvements.
There is an autism treatment evaluation check list you can fill in prior to intervention and afterwards to guage improvement (sometimes the change is too gradual for us to be fully aware).

my son has been taking eye q for the past two years. We started off with the initial 6 capsules a day for three months and now he takes just two a day. I have to be honest and don't feel that they have really made any great difference. His appetite is poor due to conerta and as he is also a faddy eater, I feel it will help keep his diet a little healthier.

You can buy it in various flavours and forms, ie capsules, granules, liquid and a smoothie kind of thing, you can even apply it but only about 60% will be absorbed so double the does. Of late it has been said that our children need double the dose anyway, but my son has been great on the normal dose.
You can almost always get it in Boots priced at 3 for 2.

Should be fine - Omega3 are also found in food like fish etc.

I think everyone should try this sort of thing, not just the people with learning disabilities.

Totally agree if it helps with brain development and learning, hence both my sons take a type of DHA supplement

My brother has epilepsy, and he takes Eye Q. It is just fish oil, and doesn't react with other meds.

So yes, I'd highly recommend you start your son on eye q or similar. You have to give it 3 months before it takes fully effect.
Eye q is one that most people use because it is readily available in most chemists. Morepa is not so readily available and I buy it online (though it comes within 48 hours). I'd be happy to supply the link if you are interested (I'm not commercially involved... just very happily using it for my kids!).
I know this topic was posted some time ago but can you tell me where i can obtain this capsure morepa mini my son will be 5 in may and if small children can take this capsule then great. I tried the oils but he will not take the oil due to the very fishy taste it has ( I tried it and I totally agree !!! )
I would be really grateful to you.

I noticed they are now doing Eye Q Chews or something too ... and for ?8.99 for 60 chews (compared with ?14.99 for 30 Eye Q Smooth's). I am going to ask for a sample from Equazen.
Word to the wise ... Boots often do Eye Q on a buy 2 get one free basis.
Oh ... and don't rely on the Omega 3 enriched milk, it doesn't provide enough ... I had it tested by the dieticians.

I sent an email to Equazen asking them if I could have a sample of the new Eye Q Chews (they are cheaper than the Smooths, my son has been on Eye Q Smooth for a year).
They sent me out a whole 60 chew bottle worth ?9.00 by Recorded Delivery with a load of brochures and information on their other products.
I think it is www.equazen.com - I got a reply from a lady called Charlene.

Unfortunately G tasted one chewy and spat it out in disgust. Then screamed at me for giving him them.
His little brother (3 next month) found them acceptable though.
I tried one and they're not all that disgusting - I've tried a few different types of omega oil and they are foul but this one reminded me of strawberry chewing gum that has lost most of it's taste.
Will really have to work on getting him to be able to take tablets as the only ones he will tolerate are halibo orange which are full of rubbish. Although we're making progress with Efaflex which I think is slightly better.
