Sure: Don't expect them to do you any good. The real scientific work on all three has been horribly disappointing. I'm glad you're on accutane after having been scarred by acne and wish you had been treated in a more timely way. Stay the course with your treatment. If you are interested in vitamins, herbs and so forth, get with an evidence-based holistic-friendly physician in your community. ...Read more
I take calcium, magnesium, hair/nails/skin vitamin, iron, and fish oil vitamin. How am i supposed to feel and how to i know they are working?
Hard to know: If you have had a deficiency of one of these vitamins or minerals, your symptoms should gradually improve- hair/nails will take a while because of slow growth. If taking for general health, it is certainly tricky to know because the goal is to not develop a condition. So, if you don't develop a condition, is it because the supplement helped or if you wouldn't have got it anyway. Good luck! ...Read more

Is taking cymbalta, (duloxetine) fish oil, vitamin d, b-100 vitamins, a good way to fight anxiety if so how much of each do I need?
Yes: Medication is just one part of taking care of anxiety. Cymbalta (duloxetine) around 60 mg will work well, but has to be approved by your doctor and tapered up from 30 mg. The supplements you mentioned don't treat anxiety. B complex can help. So can valerian root. These must be in conjunction with exercise, diet (no caffeine) and therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Irregular menses: Many women have irregular menses at some point. The length of your cycle as well as the flow of your menses may change based on stress levels, hormone levels, dietary and weight changes.

If your cycle does not return after a few more weeks, i'd seek a medical eval. ...Read more
