Do herbal tonic medicines contain hormone growth? Also what about coq10? What are they made of

Nobody knows for...: Nobody knows for sure what is in every "herbal tonic". Many people and many companies make stuff to sell as "herbal tonic", without good research. Products have various ingredients. In the U.S., one can somewhat trust what is listed on the label, especially if it is made by a well known manufacturer. There should not be any growth hormone nor any other hormone in over-the-counter "herbal tonics". ...Read more

Complex, coq10, l-carnitine, vitamin e, and I'm also prescribed atenolol and lisinopril. Are these dangerous if I take them together?

Complex, coq10, l-carnitine, vitamin e, and I'm also prescribed atenolol and lisinopril. Are these dangerous if I take them together?

Sounds OK: An interaction between these sounds unlikely. I would feel pretty safe taking these although I am not sure waht complex is -- sounds like a multivitamin? They should not be taken in excessive amounts. ...Read more

I have very high cholesterol. Meds cause pain in all my muscles. I watch my diet and exercise? What else can I do. I also use coq10.

I have very high cholesterol. Meds cause pain in all my muscles. I watch my diet and exercise? What else can I do. I also use coq10.

Find lipid MD: A lipid specialist should be able to help with this problem. Sometimes statins can be started at very low doses and increased very slowly. There are other less effective medications that can be tried. Finally, a lipid specialist may have access to research trial for new medication which may help. Usually medical schools can steer you in the right direction (try vanderbilt in tn). ...Read more

I've been on coq10 1200 mg/day per neuro md order x 4 days for supsected mitrochondrial deficit. Should I have felt more energy by now? How soon does it kick in?

I've been on coq10 1200 mg/day per neuro md order x 4 days for supsected mitrochondrial deficit. Should I have felt more energy by now? How soon does it kick in?

Too soon...: Coq10 is thought to return the resilience of the mitochondrial wall to normal if it is depleted, due to, for example, taking statins for high cholesterol. There are no good scientific studies that, in my assessment, proves this; it is variable, but some feel more energy within a few weeks or months. The dose you are talking about are high, but I believe dr. Andrew weill recommends that. ...Read more

Is it safe to take 565mg hawthorne supplement 100mg coq10 and 100-200mg vitamin B6 together or will they interact with each other. Thank yoh?

Is it safe to take 565mg hawthorne supplement 100mg coq10 and 100-200mg vitamin B6 together or will they interact with each other. Thank yoh?

Yes, very safe but..: Yes, it is quite safe to take these together. They should work well together as a team, however, coq10 is better absorbed after a meal (choose forms like ubiqinol or bioq10 that are better absorbed) & herbs are better absorbed on an empty stomach. Limit b6 to 200 mg/day- 100 mg 2x/day is better than 200 mg once a day. Consider a quality multivitamin as well. ...Read more

Coq10 helps my heart issues and fibromyalgia but what dose should I take? I've been taking 1200mg but how much can my liver process? Its expensive.

Placebo: Prior to the 20th century, traveling peddlers sold tonics that were touted to treat just about everything. See this list for coenzq10 from the mayo clinic: http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/coenzyme-q10/ns_patient-coenzymeq10/dsection=evidence
there is no proof that coq10 treats anything. No dose has been shown to be effective. 1200 mg daily is the most that's ever advised however. ...Read more
