On metoprol for tremor makes me tiredcan't excercise or drink coffee energy drinkshave tried reg & prenatal vitamins any suggestions I am loosin mind?

Ask your doc: If metoprolol is making you too tired or sleepy then, you may benefit from a reduction in dose while still maintaining effectiveness of the drug or you may simply need an alternative medication. Coffee (caffeinated) can make tremors worse as can energy drinks. I do not recommend them for anybody since they've been associated with neurological problems such as stroke. Speak to your provider. ...Read more

During my pregnancy I took prenatal vitamins and notice my hair grew longer and fuller. Will prenatal vitamins give me same results not pregnant?

During my pregnancy I took prenatal vitamins and notice my hair grew longer and fuller. Will prenatal vitamins give me same results not pregnant?

Probably: The vast majority of people get inadequate levels of vitamins and minerals from their diets, as the food we eat often is deficient in them. Thus, I recommend that everyone take a quality multivitamin to insure we get the vitamins and minerals we need. While this is very important when pregnant, those who are not pregnant also need and benefit from vitamins. See http://tinyurl. Com/mzrkbx8 ...Read more

Can prenatal vitamins give you the some of the same symptoms has pregnancy? Like breast tenderness fatigue gas and a little abdominal pain?

Unlikely: I've never heard of any vitamins causing breast tenderness. Vitamins are very unlikely to cause fatigue, gas or abdominal pain unless you're allergic to one or more of the ingredients- for example, some vitamins contain soy or gluten which are common allergens. If you're sure you aren't pregnant then try stopping them to see if you feel better, then restart. If it causes problems try another type. ...Read more

Best prenatal vitamins to take?

Ideally with 5-MTHF: Most prenatals are fairly similar but there's a subtle yet important difference. About 30% of people can't convert Folic Acid to its active form, l-5-mthf, so to be on the safe side it's best to take one with that form like prenatal nutrients (pure encapsulations), basic prenatal (thorne) or prenatal pro (designs for health). These also have biotin, which is important, & natural e, not synthetic. ...Read more

Any way: Chewables or tablet form, as long as you can tolerate taking the vitamins, that is what is important. Prenatal vitamins are SUPPLEMENTS to a healthy, well-balanced diet.
