Abstract

Despite recent guidance from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommending the addition of omega-3s to the cocktail of therapeutic substances to be taken postmyocardial infarction (post-MI), there has been some debate about the strength of the evidence and the relative merits of prescribing the only licensed product (Omacor) and dietary modification.
