Hi there also can I take raspberry ketone with propranolol I take propranolol for anxiety only not a Herat condition. Thank you ?
Likely fine: It is likely fine to take the raspberry ketone along with the propranolol as long as you don't notice any difference in you anxiety level.

Why?: Why would you take that junk? Save your money. Make sure your thyroid level is normal. See you doctor to do that. Don't get your medical information from tv or the internet. What were you thinking that coconut oil was going to help you with anyway? The only thing that will lose weight is your wallet. ...Read more

If i'm a heart patient (with pacemaker/defibrillator), diabetic, can I take a natural thyroid supplement for my hypothyroidism?
No to "natural": If you are hypothyroid, you should take levothyroxine. So called "natural" thyroid is from slaughterhouse bovine thyroid, and contains a mixture of different thyroid hormones. The dose is not consistent, and it is harder for your doctor to follow and monitor. The consequences of hypo- or hyperthyroidism (from the pill) are much worse if you are diabetic and have heart problems. ...Read more

Won't happen overnight but you need to adjust somewhere. ...Read more
I'm on 100mgs of thyroxine for hypothyroidism. I'm trying for a baby can I take a preconception vitamin with iodine in it 150mg. Will it interact. ?
That's fine: Hi. It's fine to take that prenatal vitamin with that iodine; it won't interact with your l-thyroxine. And just to clarify, you're taking 100 micrograms (mcg), not 100 milligrams (mg). 100 mcg is the same as 0.1 mg, so if you want to use milligrams, it's 0.1 mg. Often your l-thyroxine dose will need to be increased early in your pregnancy. I'm sure your OB is on top of that. Good luck! ...Read more
I bought sea kelp to help my graves' disease, the bottle says consult a doctor if you have any thyroid problems, so is it okay to take?
Consult your doctor: The idea behind sea kelp is that it has iodine in it which in it of itself can affect your thyroid levels.

I have Graves' disease and I'm taking tapazol pills, if I get a vitamin 12 shots or take vitamin supplements, can that interfere with my medicine?
B12 is fine, but...: Getting B12 will it cause a problem. It's best to avoid dietary or herbal supplements for reasons to complex to explain in 400 characters. Also avoid iodine in any form which can worsen hyperthyroidism. Since you have an endocrine problem, I suggest you discuss all dietary supplements and vitamins with your doc and endocrinologist before buying or taking them. Take only what is recommended. ...Read more
Can i take vitamin a pills with a daily mulitvitamin if i also take fish oil capsules? Would they be a good alternative for acne medication?
Poor alternative: You'll need to take enough vitamin A to make yourself sick (and I mean SICK) before you can expect it to clear your acne. Get a topical retinoic acid derivative for your skin rather than the overkill approach that systemic administration offers. If this doesn't clear you, get with your personal physician for help. Fish oil's your business -- the recent studies are disappointing. ...Read more
Hello, my gyno advised that I should start taking Folic Acid, how many mgs should I take & can it be stand alone or should it be in a multivitamin?
Folic acid: It depends 'what' you are taking the folic acid for... If you're concerned about preventing neural tube defects in an unborn baby, then probably a large dose like 5 mg a day is helpful. Most of my patients are on 1 mg a day. Remember folic acid comes from plants that have FOLiage (leaves) - so anything green with leaves will have the natural vitamin. Check the vitamin bottle to see how much folate ...Read more

If i take estroven, otc, should I be taking a multi-vitamin also, or does the estroven have enough in it? I also take other supplements.
Estroven: Estroven does not have enough of the multis you need. You can take a good one a day mult vitamin. Also with you possibly in menopause, you need to watch your bone health. The one vitamin pearle i will tell you is that you should take also a good calcium supplement. One like citracal with d. The reason for citracal is that is better absorbed in a low acid enviroment which Omeprazole may cause. ...Read more
Can you take 1 mg of melatonin if you have a thyroid condition? And what effect does it have on it
0.3 - 1.0 mg: Take it 90min before sleep. Take the smaller dose and see if it works. Much higher doses can actually interfere with sleep. If you have a "thyroid" condition, it should be evaluated an treated properly asap. Also, your herbs and supplements can interfere with medication, have adverse side effects, and don't help you in any way. Don't believe what you read on the internet or hear from friends. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
