Can I take calcium 600 mg with vitamin D3 400 international units every day for depression and anxiety  for how long can I take it     ?

Calcium and D are: more helpful for bone health than for mood disorders. The D may be moderately helpful in that way, however. Please see a mental health professional and do not rely on medication alone. Learn some stress management techniques from the doc. The Relaxation Response book by Herbert Benson can help. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Can someone explain how 50, 000 iu caplet of vitamin d once per week for 12 weeks works?

Can someone explain how 50, 000 iu caplet of vitamin d once per week for 12 weeks works?

Vitamin D: I am unsure what you are really asking. This prescription approach to vitamin d is to attempt to get the vitamin d levels back to normal rapidly. It does not solve the problem long term and you will need to be on a daily vitamin d supplement from now on. ...Read more

My vitamin d 25 hydroxy is low at a 27.8. How do I know which vit d should I take? Can i take a vitamin D3 1, 000 pill to help raise it?

My vitamin d 25 hydroxy is low at a 27.8. How do I know which vit d should I take? Can i take a vitamin D3 1, 000 pill to help raise it?

Vitamin D: Although there is some controversy about the cutoff of normal level of vitamin d, it is generally agreed that above 30 is a normal level. So, your level is only slightly below that, and 400-500 iu of vit d3 supplement should be sufficient, and 1000 iu will certainly raise it above 30. Depending on your risk for osteoporosis, higher levels of vit d may be recommended. ...Read more

Hai, doctors.... I daily take vitamins c supplement, did't because i take every days it's will be side effect to my health?

Little benefit: Vitamin c deficiency is extraordinarily rare in the first world diet. There is no proven benefit to extra supplementation and there are many studies that draw this conclusion. This is an area in which marketing of c supplements has way exceeded the need. Your health will be much better improved with regular exercise, intelligent diet control and keeping yourself productively busy. ...Read more

I have menieres. I take  0.5 mg klonopin (clonazepam) 2x daily & diuretic 1 x day. Can i take betahistine 8 mg  2x day /same time to help stop the vertigo attacks?

Controversial: The role of betahistine is controversial. Whereas still used in europe, it is no longer used in the United States, or is very scarcely. If a low salt diet an diuretic is not helping abate the vertigo attacks, you likely need greater intervention. ...Read more

Hi doctor, i started to take women's multi vitamin from today.I want to take fish oil tablet as well.Is it safe to take two tablet together?

Hi doctor, i started to take women's multi vitamin from today.I want to take fish oil tablet as well.Is it safe to take two tablet together?

Yes: This is perfectly safe; each provides essential nutrients that the other doesn't. Some feel it may improve absorption if you don't take them at the exact same time out of concern that the oils and minerals will react to form a soap. I'm not sure if this is true but it might be wise to take the multivitamin with breakfast or lunch and the fish oil after dinner. Look for a fish oil that is purified. ...Read more

I have cml.  I take 600 mg tasigna-nilotinib daily, and4000 mg vit c per day and 5000iu vit d3.  Is it safe to take as much?  My doc  says yes.

Vitamins: Vitamins a, d, e, & k are fat soluble vitamins and so too much supplement can lead to toxic levels. Vitamin c is water soluble and so excess can be eliminated in the urine. Your likely ok taking the vit d due to your ongoing treatment. However, your physician should check your level every 6 to 12 months to insure the level is optimal and not a risk. ...Read more

I've chronic HCV, GERD, BP1 disorder. i take Depakote ER 1,500/day, do I safely can take apap if i've fever,headaches,no longer than 5 days at 2 grams?

I've chronic HCV, GERD, BP1 disorder. i take Depakote ER 1,500/day, do I safely can take apap if i've fever,headaches,no longer than 5 days at 2 grams?

Check LFT: You should check with your prescribing doctor regarding the status of your liver. I would periodically check liver function and ammonia anyway but i tend to err on the side of caution. The earliest sign of liver problems is loss of appetite followed by itchiness. I would not take more than 325 mg of APAP every 8 hours. ...Read more

Im taking bupropion sr 200mg, take twice  a day. What time should I take this or how far apart?  Thanks

Wellbutrin (bupropion) SR: Hello. Normally the first wellbutrin (bupropion) is taken the first thing in the morning. The second one is usually taken around 8 hours later. I recommend that the second one not be taken later than 3 pm at the very latest to avoid insomnia. Don't drink caffeine if you take wellbutrin (bupropion). ...Read more

My doctor told me to take 325mg ferrous sulfate 2x day for anemia. I bought carbonyl iron.Should I adjust my dosage if at all?

My doctor told me to take 325mg ferrous sulfate 2x day for anemia. I bought carbonyl iron.Should I adjust my dosage if at all?

Why anemia?: Ibuprofen may cause gastritis. Why are you anemic? Menstrual blood loss needs to replace iron in blood lost during menses. Blood in stool? Not familiar with carbonyl iron--what is the brand? Iron should not be taken with milk or milk products within hour of milk meal, as this decreases iron absorption. My favorite iron brand is Vitron C--causes less stomach symptoms. ...Read more

I take centrum, 400 mg Maganesium Citrate and 2 gel caps of Zyflamend.   Zyflamend has helped with  job and gym inflammation. Serving size is 2. I take one  AM &  PM.  Can I take 2 BID?

Wouldn't recommend: Since this product is anti inflammatory, it can potentially thin the blood too much. Also, since it contains 10 different herbs, I'd be concerned about overdoses of those and interactions with any meds you take. Good luck! ...Read more
