Can plexus slim be taken w seaweed nazacort echinachea opc grapeseed garlic Lipitor (atorvastatin) ginger omeprazole fish oil acetyllcartinine & glucosaminecondroit?

Probably: One of the problems with many supplements is that there is little research on safety and effectiveness. Plexus slim has many ingredients; I have reviewed them ; they are all safe and have no known interactions with the things you are taking.

Why Supplements?: Since you're 17 years old, I am concerned that you are spending time and money wasting it on the supplements that you listed. While some of the substances are present in a healthy diet, there is actually no reason you should be taking them in the form of a supplement. You should be getting all the vitamin D you need in a healthy diet, and the other things, except Prilosec, are unproven. ...Read more

Is it safe to take ginseng, vit d, k, calcium + capsicum supplements and cinnamon, dandelion, green, rosehip, chamomile and peppermint teas together?

Is it safe to take ginseng, vit d, k, calcium + capsicum supplements and cinnamon, dandelion, green, rosehip, chamomile and peppermint teas together?

Who knows?: Why would anyone have ever scientifically studied such a combination? Do so, as with all otc supplements, at your own risk. The only one that has been scientifically studied and has actual medical benefits without significant risks is the vitamin d. Calcium can't hurt. The rest are a waste of money and possibly health. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. ...Read more

On Prozac&vyvanse and want to know if I can take supp evening primrose ginkgo biloba fish oil acidophilus L-arginine ginseng damiana gotu kola gre tea?

Why????: None of the things you mention are of the slightest benefit for anything. They are sold by com men to suckers in order to cheat them out of their money. If you want a placebo I suggest a roll of Necco wafers. Some are worse than others. Put them all in a bag and take them to show your DR. ...Read more
