If steroids increase estrogen levels, will boosting t naturally (ie taking vitd, abstinence, getting good sleep, eating right foods) also increase e?
A different question: Young grasshopper, why do you want more testosterone? We generally want to avoid adjusting these critical hormones in young people unless there is a compelling medical reason. I like your thinking though about focusing on good rest and recovery. Those are critical to healthy levels of natural hormones. Estrogen will not usually be increased by normal t levels. ...Read more
Does vitamin C decrease absorption of, or interact with, methylphenidate? If so, how long before/after taking MPH can you eat vitamin C?
No, but: Diazepam and other benzodiazepines & sedatives like it do not directly affect metabolic rate. However, they can have indirect effects in some people.

A sedative will alleviate the anxiety and the weight loss. ...Read more

If i buy vitamin B12 supplements and vitamin E supplements. Will it increase my energy and brain power?
It depends...: If you are deficient in B12 it will improve energy and can improve brain function. If you are not deficient (levels below 500) it won't help. Vit e is useful as a preventive measure but generally does not give energy or brain power. It would be ideal to consult with a holistic doc to assess the reasons you might lack energy or brain power so you can address the specific causes. ...Read more
Losing so much while breastfeeding. Can I take appetite stimulant to increase my calorie intake? I have very little appetite. Please help.
PeanutButterPowerBar: Well, think of it this way, you'll take the appetite stimulant and then some of it will get into your breast milk and the baby will get some of it & will then want to take more milk. So where does that get you? Taking an inappropriate drug at the wrong time and then sharing it with the wrong person. And both of you eating more. Better to find food with high calories you can eat in small amounts ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does vitamin B6 or B12 supplementation react with lexapro (escitalopram)? Do any vitamins or minerals for that matter?
Yes and no: Lexapro (escitalopram) has no direct interaction with vitamin b6 or vitamin b12. Deficiency of vit B12 can cause depression or even dementia among other things. The same holds for folic acid, another b vitamin. Sometimes we will prescribe vitamin b6 for women who have a depressive reaction to the Progesterone component of birth control pills. L-methyl folate is used to boost the effects of drugs like lexapro (escitalopram). ...Read more
