I have benign fasiculation syndrome; however, calcium citrate controls it to the point I feel cured. My calcium level is normal. Why?

Don't know: We do not know what causes this condition. We do know most people get better with time and no other treatment. If the calcium citrate works for you and you have no side effects from it, I would continue it. Sorry I could not provider a better answer. This is a condition we do not understand very well. Best of luck. Dr R ...Read more

Is it possible that a severe vitamin d deficiency, along with a slight calcium defiency could cause severe fatigue? (dx chronic fatigue syndrome)

I had a coronary cta and calcium score that was normal 6 months ago. I do have Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome but does the cta prove no heart attack?

CTA and heart attack: A cta does not prove one has had a heart attack (mi). It onlyshows the anatomy of the coronary arteries. If they are diseased, you are more prone to developing a mi. Ekg's can show the presence of an acute mi or an old one. At age 18, you are a bit you to have a cta. What was your physician (p) thinking when the p ordered the study? ...Read more

My father has alzheimer's.  He is taking mirapex (pramipexole) for restless leg syndrome before bedtime.  He's also taking calcium and a multivitamin at that time?

Alzheimers med?: There are 4 drugs approved for the treatment of alzheimer's disease, Aricept and Exelon (rivastigmine) probably the most common, Exelon (rivastigmine) being my favorite.

I have PMDD. What supplements are safe together? 5htp, St. John's wort, vitex, calcium, omega 3, d, magnesium, b? I don't want serotonin syndrome.

I have PMDD. What supplements are safe together? 5htp, St. John's wort, vitex, calcium, omega 3, d, magnesium, b? I don't want serotonin syndrome.

St Johns & 5htp: Avoid using both St Johns Wort and 5htp. Usually taking prescription SSRIs in combo and some other psychotropic medications can cause that so following close care by doctor is needed. Try to find a naturopath. The other items you mention do not relate to serotonin - so this is not a risk. ...Read more
