Can You Take Vitamins With Alcohol
Does alcohol cause any vitamin deficiences? If so how do I know if I need to take extra supplements?
Yes: Alcoholism is associated with, among other things, B12 and Folic Acid deficiencies. You should not, however, have a problem if you eat right, exercise, and drink alcohol only in moderation. If you are an alcoholic then vitamin deficiency is only a part of the problem, and the problems won't improve until the alcohol abuse stops no matter how many supplements you take.See 1 more doctor answer
Thiamine, folate (folic acid): Thiamine and folate (folic acid) are the most common vitamin deficiencies. Multivitamins are commonly included during withdrawal treatment. Nutritional support is important because patients are often malnourished, but can be problematic early in the process if withdrawal symptoms are severe. Withdrawal is a serious condition and must be monitored in the hospital rather than attempted at home.See 1 more doctor answer

Seek real love: Health does not come out of a pill bottle, even "vitamins". You need something in your life to give you joy and beauty and meaning so you won't want to scramble your brain any more with that stuff.

For the past month or so, my feet get swollen after drinking alcohol. It only takes 2 or 3 glasses of wine. I'm on vitamin b12. Any correlation?
Unsure: There are few studies in humans on this that I have been able to locate. Some of the damage that alcohol does to the body involves increases in oxidizing substances, where anti-oxidants can help prevent damage, and vitamin E is an anti-oxidant. Some people feel that extra vitamin E may be helpful in those with alcoholism, but there is no real proof of this. 15-30 mg of vit e would be reasonable.
Vitamins, herbs and:: Congratulations on stopping. The first 1-2 days are the hardest. Alcohol withdrawal can be dangerous; one can even get seizures. I advise a good multivit., a B-complex that has the L-5-MTHF form of folate (folic acid). Niacineamide 500 mg 3x/day, Magnesium as taurate or glycinate. Kudzu and Holy Basil are useful herbs. The homeopathic medicine Nux Vomica 30c often helps a lot. See http://tinyurl. Com/7xkbuk6See 1 more doctor answer
Depression: Call your doctor and ask this question, without knowing what you are taking it is difficult to answer although it is hard to imagine you could die from taking a prescribed medication and a vitamin with one drink. Call your prescribing doctor and don't continue drinking. Best.See 1 more doctor answer
No, however...: No, this chemical does not have any real relationship to the type of alcohol we drink and will not raise your alcohol level one bit. However, while considered non-toxic, I do not think it's wise to take a vitamin with synthetic chemicals like this. It is probably a sign that this is not the best quality vitamin; there are many better choices. See http://tinyurl. Com/mzrkbx8
Most of them: Most alcoholics are deficient in vitamins and taking them is very important for reducing withdrawal symptoms ; maintaining sobriety. I advise a strong b complex with 100 mg of b's (b1 is esp. Crucial) ; vit. C 1000 mg. Minerals like zinc ; magnesium ; l-glutamine 1000 mg 3x/day also help. Avoid sweets. See http://www. Healthy.

Will anything, apart from alcohol affect anti depressants? Will any vitamins like vitamin C or anything affect it?
It depends...: There are many different antidepressants making it hard to generalize. For example, MAO inhibitors (not widely prescribed) are affected by many foods that contain tyramines. Grapefruit juice can affect levels of some antidepressants like sertraline. But most antidepressants aren't affected by food or vitamins. You can go to websites like www. Drugs. Com to see all known interactions for a given med.
No reason: To drink on the the day of an important injection: are you taking the B12 because of an alcoholic issue?
I have been told my mean corpuscular volume is high. I have moderated my alcohol intake and begun taking a multi-vitamin. What can it cause?
Vitamin deficiency: Large (macrocytic) red blood cells usually result from a deficiency of vitamin B12 or Folic Acid (folate). If you are taking those and your macrocytes don't improve, you may not be able to absorb the vitamins from you GI tract. You may wish to see your doctor again or consult a hematologist if things don't improve.
How much alcohol consumption is safe in a day? If vitamin B12 levels below normal in a social drinker, how to correct, what regime to follow?
Find the cause: One number that's held up is 5 or more alcoholic drinks on any one day more than once a week means you're heading for loss of control. The cause of the vitamin B12 deficiency needs to be found. If you're a vegetarian, consider giving it up or supplementing. If your diet is okay or you supplement, an investigation for pernicious anemia ; other causes will be undertaken by your physician.See 1 more doctor answer
