Any interactions?:ashwagandha, magnesium l threonate,taurate,glycinate, fish oil, cdp choline,acetyl l carnitine,alpha lipoic acid, vitamin d,prilosec

Why Supplements?: Since you're 17 years old, I am concerned that you are spending time and money wasting it on the supplements that you listed. While some of the substances are present in a healthy diet, there is actually no reason you should be taking them in the form of a supplement. You should be getting all the vitamin D you need in a healthy diet, and the other things, except Prilosec, are unproven. ...Read more

Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin,  l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?

Should be fine: I don't see any significant problems taking all of these supplements. If you have any side effects, however, it may be a challenge to know which is the culprit. Typically, side effects from these are minimal or not existent. If you are taking the prilosec due to the others causing GI complaints, you may want to reconsider this strategy. ...Read more

Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?

Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? 
Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement  safe for gout users?

None will effect gou: Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements. BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more

Drug interactions with niacin atenolol vit c magnesium iron Zoloft (sertraline) melatonin and armour ?

Drug interactions with niacin  atenolol vit c magnesium iron Zoloft (sertraline) melatonin and  armour  ?

Epocrates check: A quick check on my trusty med database program reveals 3 main negative interactions with those meds listed. Two of them are with armour. The armour interacts with both the iron and magnesium making the thyroid med less absorbed, so separate these vitamins from your armour by at least 4 hrs. The other major interaction is atenolol and niacin. Less cholesterol lowering effect and overlowering of bp. ...Read more

Is the diet supplement dopamite safe?

Is the diet supplement dopamite safe?

Dopamite: Like most 'supplements' the buyer should be aware: that they do not work. The quality of any supplement can never be assured first of all. Second, look for magical ingredients from strange plants in exotic places: those places are great to visit on vacation, but using chopped up and dried extracts of some plant from far away is another thing altogether. None of these supplements are ever tested in. ...Read more

So don't worry, take your fibers. Most of us in the good us of a don't consume enough fibers. If you can, do it for better health. If you have concerns, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
