Is it okay to take 1 prenatal vitamin, 1 Azo yeast pill, and the 3 required hair skin and nail vitamins in 1 day? And no, I'm not pregnant.

Skin and nail: You may be taking more Vitamins than you need. The Prenatal Vitamin likely has everything you need. Too many Vitamins can actually cause more harm than good. You would have to read the contents of the skin and nail Vitamins and see if they overlap with the prenatal (which they likely do). Then total all of it up to see if you exceed safe levels. One Vitamin a day is usually enough ...Read more

Rogaine, (minoxidil) Propecia: The only two hair growth products currently on the market with real clinical data to support their use are rogaine (minoxidil) (topical) and Propecia (oral).

Marine Fish Oil: Glad to see you've been to a dermatologist. You can consider using high doses of good quality marine fish oil to lubricate your skin from the inside. You are young for male pattern baldness and if your hair was thicker before your skin that's a good sign. I know it's a sensitive topic but keep your focus on being a good person and the superficial stuff will become less important. ...Read more
