Help me find an omega-3 I can take

I tried fish oil, and don't know if it was the extra iodine, but my face broke out in like 8 cysts the next day. I've read flax seeds are bad too, as well as most nuts (I've been eating almonds, but now wonder if those are bad). I've been getting depressed and feel like I want to cry a lot, and I'm sure it's because of the hypothyroidism. I've read St. John's Wort can interfere with meds, but that some omega-3's can help. So what are some other options for me?

Re: Help me find an omega-3 I can take

Have you tried the flaxseed tablets? I react to iodine dyes.. but a reaction to plain KI is unheard of... You should be able to get an iodine free omega-3 oil source. I will look into it.
