On metoprol for tremor makes me tiredcan't excercise or drink coffee energy drinkshave tried reg & prenatal vitamins any suggestions I am loosin mind?

Ask your doc: If metoprolol is making you too tired or sleepy then, you may benefit from a reduction in dose while still maintaining effectiveness of the drug or you may simply need an alternative medication. Coffee (caffeinated) can make tremors worse as can energy drinks. I do not recommend them for anybody since they've been associated with neurological problems such as stroke. Speak to your provider. ...Read more

Missing vit D dose: No problem, 1 missed dose will not affect your baby, besides vitamins D in normally formed by the body from exposure of the skin to the sun. Try to give your baby the vitamin at the same time you take yours, this way you don't forget. Good luck & enjoy your baby. ...Read more

During my pregnancy I took prenatal vitamins and notice my hair grew longer and fuller. Will prenatal vitamins give me same results not pregnant ?

During my pregnancy I took prenatal vitamins and notice my hair grew longer and fuller. Will prenatal vitamins give me same results not pregnant ?

Probably: The vast majority of people get inadequate levels of vitamins and minerals from their diets, as the food we eat often is deficient in them. Thus, I recommend that everyone take a quality multivitamin to insure we get the vitamins and minerals we need. While this is very important when pregnant, those who are not pregnant also need and benefit from vitamins. See http://tinyurl.com/mzrkbx8 ...Read more

My doctor prescribed me iron supplements twice a day & prenatal vitamins once a day. Can I take all  3 of them together or I should give sum hours gap?
