Can lutein or zeaxanthin cause side effects such as insomnia, tiredness, dizziness, or constiipation? I want to take it to improve my vision.

Can lutein or zeaxanthin cause side effects such as insomnia, tiredness, dizziness, or constiipation? I want to take it to improve my vision.

No, however...: Lutein and Zeaxanthin are carotenoids naturally found in fruits and vegetables and do not have any side effects, but they may be in capsules that have additives or preservatives some may react to, so I advise companies like Pure Encapsulations and Thorne that don't use those. Many other nutrients are good for eyes such as Vit. A, C, D, E, zinc, selenium and EFA's. See http://tinyurl. Com/b56ua4 ...Read more

Husband is new to taking Lasix, (furosemide) due to afib. Experiencing severe tiredness. Is there a different diuretic with less side effects?

Husband is new to taking Lasix, (furosemide) due to afib. Experiencing severe tiredness. Is there a different diuretic with less side effects?

Hypokalemia: Your question suggests that the patient may be losing too much potassium as a result of Lasix (furosemide) and that may be making him weak. Low potassium makes muscles weaker. A second possibility is that the Lasix (furosemide) is causing too much water and sodium to be lost, causing dehydration and that is why he is weak. I suggest meeting with a cardiologist. Hope this helps. ...Read more
