No room for details: Our bodies are complex and interconnected. Chemicals usually have more than one function. So making beneficial corrections in one system can throw another system off balance. The task of finding the point with least negative and most positive effects is the challenge physicians face. If you want more detail, ask your provider or pharmacist for direction. Best!
