Take lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) 100mg for arrythymia-sometimes arrythymia very bad. Does magnesium/potassium help-also have hypertension-take atacand 12mg daily?

Take lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) 100mg for arrythymia-sometimes arrythymia very bad. Does magnesium/potassium help-also have hypertension-take atacand 12mg daily?

Ask your doctor. : Magnesium (mg) and/ or potassium (k) supplements would be useful if you are prone to deficiencies which can lead to arrhythmias, but check with your doctor first. Other medical problems like kidney disease may increase levels of mg & k, making supplementation risky. Also, Atacand (candesartan) can increase your serum k level. Best to ask your doctor who is measuring your electrolytes. ...Read more

Yes: there are no contraindications with any medication, as far as I know. Magnesium is found in many foods, and magnesium deficiency has become more common, particularly with use of drugs like omeprazole (Prilosec), esomeprazole (Nexium) and similar drugs which markedly reduce stomach acid and impede magnesium absorption. ...Read more

Is taking 50000 iu D2 pill 1/week for month safe, esp along with 300 mg Wellbutrin (bupropion) XL (morn) & 1.5 mg Klonopin plus 1 mg melatonin (night)?

Pretty safe.: That is the recommended dose for that vitamin D. There is not an obvious interaction between any of the drugs except for klonapin and melatonin (they both make one sleepy) and the interaction there is quite mild. Klonapin is a controlled dangerous substance with addictive potential. ...Read more

What vitamin supplements should one avoid when taking 75 mg plavix, two 81mg aspirin and 40mg crestor (rosuvastatin) daily?

What vitamin supplements should one avoid when taking 75 mg plavix, two 81mg aspirin and 40mg crestor (rosuvastatin) daily?

High dose E BUT...: Vitamins are by definition essential for health so I'm wary of any drug that makes it necessary to avoid vitamins. The only vit. that interacts with these is Vit E, which in high doses thins blood so may increase risk of bleeding with Plavix (clopidogrel) & aspirin.However, this potential risk pales in comparison with the known hazards of combining Plavix (clopidogrel) & aspirin.
