Not known to but...: Apple cider vinegar is a widely used folk remedy, but like most folk remedies research on it is limited. As best as i can tell, it is not known to cause constipation (see http://altmedicine.About.Com/od/applecidervinegardiet/a/applecidervineg.Htm ) and on this website 17 of 21 people reported it was a useful home remedy to treat constipation: http://www.Earthclinic.Com/cures/constipation.Html#acv. ...Read more

Extra joss energy drink with aspartame, acesulfame k, sodium bicarbonate, royal jelly, citric acid, and some flavor safe as a staple preworkout?
Many meds: I don't think this is a good idea - too many meds! Please have your doctor refer you to a dietitian - he/she will help you optimize the many drinks, meds, etc. Please keep me informed. ...Read more
