What is the drug interaction between etoposide and vitamins?

What is the drug interaction between etoposide and vitamins?

There really is: Limited defined interactions between etoposide and vitamins. There is a hypothetical concern about antioxidants like Co Q10, vitamins A, C and E and selenium preventing cell damage and thus making certain anticancer agents less effective but there is limited formal data in this regards. If you take supplements with anticancer meds review this with your doc and avoid "mega" doses. ...Read more

Is there a drug interaction from taking vitamin D3 ibuprofen and seroquel (quetiapine) I sprained my wrist and I was wondering if I could take ibuprofen?

Is there a drug interaction from taking vitamin D3 ibuprofen and seroquel (quetiapine) I sprained my wrist and I was wondering if I could take ibuprofen?

Ask your pharmacist: At your age there is probably nothing wrong with mixing ibuprofen, vitamin D and Seroquel but the 24 hour pharmacy has a pharmacist available to answer these types of questions. Your pharmacist has a database that can be searched. Usually the pharmacist has a great deal of training and experience giving this type of advice. It is very wise that you did ask someone about a possible interaction ...Read more

Have a 17-year-old taking Bactrim sulfamethoxazole tmp wondering if there will be any drug interaction if she takes an herbal allergy pill that I got at the health food center that has vitamin A, C, pantothenic acid, calcium, zinc, quercetin, n-acety

Have a 17-year-old taking Bactrim sulfamethoxazole tmp wondering if there will be any drug interaction if she takes an herbal allergy pill that I got at the health food center that has vitamin A, C, pantothenic acid, calcium, zinc, quercetin, n-acety

Probably OK, but...: I doubt there is any serious potential for an adverse interaction. However, one of the problems with "natural" medicines, herbal products, and nutritional supplements, etc is that their exact contents often are unknown, And even when known, there is little research on interations with other drugs. So hard to be certain -- but probably no problem. ...Read more

Can I take fenugreek and a prenatal vitamin together?

Can I take fenugreek and a prenatal vitamin together?

Yes unless pregnant: It is safe to take fenugreek and a prenatal vitamin. Fenugreek has many benefits. Due to estrogen-like properties it can enhance lactation, reduce menstrual cramps and reduce menopausal symptoms but it is advised to not use fenugreek while pregnant as it might increase risk of miscarriage.

My wife just found out she is pregnant. What is the best prenatal vitamin out there?

My wife just found out she is pregnant. What is the best prenatal vitamin out there?

No single best but: This is to some degree subjective and the best for one person may not be the best for another but I advise MegaFood Baby and Me, Vitamin Code Raw Prenatal or Thorne's Basic Prenatal as they are all excellent. It is also wise to supplement with DHA (Nordic Naturals is a good choice).

What is the best prenatal vitamin with DHA included?

Not much difference: There really isn't much difference in vitamins. I recommend the one that's most convenient and fairly inexpensive. The words 'prenatal' like 'wedding' can cause large upcharges in price that are unnecessary. Even better is trying to get your vitamins from a balanced diet. Studies show that you absorb more from food than from a vitamin. Lots of fruits and vegetables. Folic acid is essential! ...Read more

Could I take a women's multivitamin and a prenatal vitamin in one day?

I wouldn't: Prenatal vitamins and multivitamins are similar (though not exactly the same), so there is no need to take both, and doing so might lead to nausea. If you accidently took both one day, I wouldn't worry, there is no real danger. ...Read more

What is the best brand and name of a prenatal vitamin for extreme hair growth?

No such thing: Extreme hair growth during pregnancy is certainly unusual and not a typical complaint. It might be a hormonal effect, and I will predict that this will change back to normal several months after you deliver. Just take a normal prenatal vitamin as there are none that will affect hair growth one way or the other. ...Read more

Is it safe to take a womens mulitvitamin and a prenatal vitamin even if I am pregant?

Why?: You should stick to your doctor's advice; I generally recommend avoiding more than 1 pnv pill daily mainly due to concerns about hypervitaminosis a - possible teratogen. You can take additional Folic Acid and calcium/iron as needed though, on top of the regular pnv dose. ...Read more

All are good and most of the product differences are marketing efforts by the companies that make them. Remember also nothing beats a healthy diet. ...Read more

I'm currently taking a daily prenatal vitamin. Is it ok to also take a daily biotin supplement? Thank you!

I'm currently taking a daily prenatal vitamin. Is it ok to also take a daily biotin supplement? Thank you!

So I don't really: Know if you are taking prenatal vitamins in case you get pregnant or actually are pregnant. Biotin would be considered safe in pregnancy, but it is best to consult your prenatal physician/midwife before adding any supplement. Biotin/B7 can be found in cauliflower, yeast, egg yolk, avocado, raspberries, salmon, etc--the best sources. Some women feel biotin may prevent postpartum hair loss. ...Read more

A friend told me that if I take prenatal vitamin it will help with nausea Is this true because I don't take them cause I hate pills?

Prenatal pills: Prenatal pills should not give nausea. You will have nausea during early pregnancy but these pills will not aggravate it. Plus, these pills are very important for your baby's development during pregnancy. So, please continue to take them. Good luck! ...Read more

If I have low potassium and vitamin d, what would be a good prenatal vitamin?

If I have low potassium and vitamin d, what would be a good prenatal vitamin?

Prenatal & Vit D &..: No prenatal alone will be adequate. I do not know of any prenatals with more than 1000 iu of d and if you are low in d I advise at lease 5000 iu a day, which you can take with your prenatal. None have much potassium- get that from more fruits & veggies. Also advise a dha supplement. Many good prenatals but I advise basic prenatal by thorne research as it has the optimal form of folate (folic acid) (l-5-mthf). ...Read more
