Taking sertraline 200mg a day. Ok to take a high strength vitamin b complex too? I've read up to 18g of inositol helpful for ocd. Under extreme stress.

Vitamins & OCD: You could take a b complex vitamin without interacting with your sertraline -- also you're right about inositol and ocd: http://tinyurl. Com/mqgbjoa I suggest discussing this with your psychiatrist -- and if you want to try them, add only one at a time. Inositol may cause flatus and nausea, so you may want to work with it gradually. ...Read more

I take atenolol & Zoloft (sertraline) daily. I'm tired & have no energy most days. I take vitamins & hCG 4 w.Loss. Could these be causing me harm by interacting?

I take atenolol & Zoloft (sertraline) daily. I'm tired & have no energy most days. I take vitamins & hCG 4 w.Loss. Could these be causing me harm by interacting?

HCG diet: Depending on the doses, atenolol and zoloft (sertraline) should be okay together. I'm wondering what type of diet you're following with HCG -- many HCG protocols recommend a 500 calorie/day diet which is very limited. The idea behind using HCG is that you're not "supposed" to be hungry on that low intake, but it doesn't work that way for everyone! You may need more food than this, & fatigue may result. ...Read more

As a vegan, how much vitamin b-12 do I need to take and what we will happen to me if I don't get enough?

As a vegan, how much vitamin b-12 do I need to take and what we will happen to me if I don't get enough?

Get plenty of it: If you have become a vegan out of concern for factory-farmed animals, you have my admiration and congratulations. You also need to know that the health benefits are massively exaggerated by many of its proponents. If you spend even a short time b12-deficient, you will get permanent brain and spinal cord damage. Your personal physician can guide you in selecting the optimal dose; you can't overdose. ...Read more

Can a 16 year old take vitamin b complex?

Of course!: Vitamins are essential nutrients that our bodies need to turn calories into energy.
