Was doing some research after noticing someone having a very remarkable reaction to conjugated linoleic acid (which is often used as a weight loss supplement).
In terms of people on psychiatric medications, this study says:
"Regarding LA levels, antipsychotic-treated patients showed significantly
reduced levels compared with controls, whereas antipsychotic-naïve
patients showed no such reductions"
While the role of fish oil and particularly DHA is often cited for "mental illness" perhaps this is indicated CLA should be a consideration for those on anti-psychotic medication?
Of course everyone is different, and one must treat the person, and not the disease, but looks like CLA may be a consideration when working with people who are coming in on anti-psychotic medication.
