Do you think those occuvite vitamins for the eye really work?

Do you think those occuvite vitamins for the eye really work?

Yes, to a degree: The age related eye disease study (areds) showed that individuals at risk for macuar degeneration had a significant decrease or delay in developing the disease when they took these vitamins vs. Those who did not. It does not prevent the disease completely, but it is the single best option that we have available at this point. If you smoke, avoid the vitamin a formula vitamins. ...Read more

Why aren't prescription medications prepared in advance? Why do pharmacies prepare them? How do they have the training to do so? I thought they simply require you to have a prescription and simply sell you the medicine and that is it?

Some : Some prescriptions (such as liquid suspensions) need to be mixed when you pick them up because they will lose strength a couple weeks after the water is added. Other times pills need to be counted. In all cases an individual label needs to be generated with your specific instructions and the pharmacist needs to verify that the medication is not something you are allergic to or something that you can't take with your other medications. ...Read more

It : It is a good thing that you asked before putting out money for any of these products. They do not work.

What to do if i found out that the prescripted eyeglasses are for women?

What to do if i found out that the prescripted eyeglasses are for women?

No difference in sex: The power of the eye as reflected in the prescription for eyeglasses is the same for males and females. Eyeglass frames are commonly oriented to have designs that each sex would prefer. If you have glasses, and the vision clears up with them, and you do not mind the appearance of the frame, then it is OK for you. ...Read more

Lutein & zeaxanthin: Lutein & zeaxanthin are anti-oxidants that help protect the retina against aging/stress. They do not make your eye worse. The best way to get these in your body is with natural foods unless you have confluent drusen in your retina (see eyedoc2020@blogspot.com). ...Read more

Do multivitamins work or are they really just toxic to the body ?

Do multivitamins work or are they really just toxic to the body ?

As with all things,: As with all things, moderation is the key. If a person has a very well-balanced diet (that gives him all the daily recommended amounts of the typical vitamins and minerals) then multivitamin supplements don't work, meaning they don't add a noticeable benefit for him. If he is unsure or he lacks enough of a vitamin, then the supplement works, meaning it helps. Too much of anything can become toxic. ...Read more

People that are bipolar and think that they are acting normal see no need for medical attention. How do you get them to an MD when they don't want to?

You can't: It appears that you are in the unfortunate situation of dealing with someone who is unable to appreciate the consequences of his/her untreated condition. Enlisting trusted family and friends to encourage and assist in seeking help would be ideal. However, if you feel that this person is in imminent danger of hurting himself/herself or others, call 911 to help bring him/her the ED for assessment. ...Read more

Have you heard about the recent research about vitamins and supplements are actually bad for us and do you think we should stop taking them?

Have you heard about the recent research about vitamins and supplements are actually bad for us and do you think we should stop taking them?

No: Vitamins, in the right amount, are generally considered a good thing to do. I certainly wouldn't stop them based in a single report. Additionally, it is too broad a statement to infer that all vitamins should be stopped. More likely is the research may have addressed taking too much of one particular vitamin. Moderation is key; speak w/ your doctor for specifics as they pertain to your health. ...Read more
