My stomach is bloating up a lot do to vitamin d probiotics vitamin b complex and gionvi birth control please help?

My stomach is bloating up a lot do to vitamin d probiotics vitamin b complex and gionvi birth control please help?

Difficult to say: Likely the vitamin d, b and birth control aren't causing your bloating. It could be the probiotics, but it could equally be something in your diet. The frequency and type of your stools might tell you about what's going on with your bloating. Make sure that you're drinking a lot of water, not soda. Exercise vigorously for 30-60 minutes a day, 7 days a week. See dr. If not better soon. ...Read more

Yes,safe as long as:: There is research showing that b6 in doses of 200-800 mg/day can raise Progesterone levels, but doses above 250 mg/day can cause neuropathy so limit it to 100 mg 2x/day- esp. A form that included pyridoxal 5-phosphate. Other nutrients may also help. See

What vitamin b complex helps to cure small types of oral aphthosis?

What vitamin b complex helps to cure small types of oral aphthosis?

Apthous ulcers: I agree with dr. Ali -- b complex (which contains all "b" vitamins) may help. Also l-lysine, an amino acid, taken at 1000mg 3/day with meals may help. Some have also used lemon balm tea. Lemon balm (melissa officinalis) extract is additionally known to help cold sores (hsv-2). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19023806. ...Read more

Can you take a multi vitamin and a regular vitamin such as vitamin b complex or c?

Can you take a multi vitamin and a regular vitamin such as vitamin b complex  or c?

Yes: A multivitamin will seldom supply optimal levels of vitamin c, so i often advise that people take additional vitamin c. Some people will benefit from higher intake of b complex than many multivitamins provide and there is no danger in taking an additional b complex. There is no harm in taking lots of b's except limit b6 to 250 day. Excessive Folic Acid may be harmful- see my comment. ...Read more

What can boost my energy and mood? I heard dhea is good? I'm 23 female currently only taking vitamin b complex & vitamin d3. Thanks!

Don't fool with: Mother nature! dhea pills generally don't contain much dhea, and even if they did, dhea is metabolized into cortisone, estrogen and testosterone -- and you don't have any way to control which it is converted into. Why take something that can't help you and can potentially harm you? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. How about getting counseling rather than rx? ...Read more

Do i take vitamin b complex with magnesium or can I take vitamin B12 ? For better absorption of magnesium. Currently also take vit D3 thanks

Do i take vitamin b complex with magnesium or can I take vitamin B12 ? For better absorption of magnesium. Currently also take vit D3 thanks

OK but not 4 absorb.: It is perfectly fine to take b complex/b12 with magnesium but won't enhance absorption. Magnesium is best absorbed on an empty stomach ; b vits can cause stomach upset on empty stomach. B vits, esp. B6, often work in synergy with mag. The best-absorbed forms of mag. Are glycinate ; taurate; citrate is ok too. Epsom salt baths ; topical "magnesium oil" are also good ways to get magnesium into you. ...Read more

Vitamin b complex caused me to break out in acne, after taking it for a year, how long will it take for my skin to improve? I've stopped taking it.

Vitamin b complex caused me to break out in acne, after taking it for a year, how long will it take for my skin to improve? I've stopped taking it.

There's no telling: Trying to figure out what's causing one to have acne is futile. Ignore all "pop" ideas and start using topical benzoyl peroxide 1-2x daily, perhaps 5%. It's not pleasant but it's your best friend. If it doesn't clear you, your physician can add prescription strength Rx. My acne remitted when I was 50; yours will too, someday. Until then, manage it like the serious medical problem that it is. ...Read more

Is it safe to take levothyroxine50mg, adipex37.5mg, vitamin b complex, c & e, magnesium & iodine supplements in morning? I'm on atenolol25mg @ night?

Is it safe to take levothyroxine50mg, adipex37.5mg, vitamin b complex, c & e, magnesium & iodine supplements in morning? I'm on atenolol25mg @ night?

Safe not advisable: Taking all those medicines together is probably safe but not advisable. Levothuroxine has to be taken on an empty stomach with a glass of water and no bother meds. This means an hour before or 2 hour after a meal. Food and other meds affect absorption. Vitamins and minerals best absorbed with food. Adipex should be taken with a meal i believe. ...Read more

And my gyancogist suggest me to take iron pills and vitamin b complex syurp.And I m having this from last 3 months but nothing can improve my periods.?

Period pain: Heavy painful periods can be controlled by birth control. Other alternatives are oil of primrose twice daily, natural Progesterone if not on any hormones, using Motrin 800mg 2x/day one week before the period to decrease pain and bleeding; eating less animal fat including dairy since animal fat may affect your hormone balance. See your doctor if this doesnot work for further work up. ...Read more

All sites where i inject im vitamin b complex are bruised. Sites where i inject vitamin B12 are not. Why?

All sites where i inject im vitamin b complex are bruised. Sites where i inject vitamin B12 are not. Why?

Did I misunderstand?: You're a young adult who lists no terribly serious illness for which you would require injectable vitamins of any sort rather than vitamins taken orally. If someone has told you that "injections are better", perhaps because they are painful, i would question this advice. You clearly value your health & i'd urge you to reconsider injecting yourself at all, or get with a mainstream dr. ...Read more
