On Prozac&vyvanse and want to know if I can take supp evening primrose ginkgo biloba fish oil acidophilus L-arginine ginseng damiana gotu kola gre tea?

Why????: None of the things you mention are of the slightest benefit for anything. They are sold by com men to suckers in order to cheat them out of their money. If you want a placebo I suggest a roll of Necco wafers. Some are worse than others. Put them all in a bag and take them to show your DR. ...Read more

Ginkgo biloba (ginkgolic acid), what are the benefits?

Ginkgo biloba (ginkgolic acid), what are the benefits?

Tricky: since recent studies say that nearly all ginko supplements may have many things in them, but ginko is almost never one of them. In theory it has some anti-platelet action and some ability to increase the neurotransmitter that is low in Alzheimers. But it doesn't bring back brain, so, VERY LIMITED role in dementia and that's it. Assuming you actually have it. ...Read more

Can plexus slim be taken w seaweed nazacort echinachea opc grapeseed garlic Lipitor (atorvastatin) ginger omeprazole fish oil acetyllcartinine & glucosaminecondroit?

Probably: One of the problems with many supplements is that there is little research on safety and effectiveness. Plexus slim has many ingredients; I have reviewed them ; they are all safe and have no known interactions with the things you are taking. However, avoid plexus slim accelerator- it is hazardous! i believe anyone on Lipitor (atorvastatin) should take coq10. See http://bit.Ly/1jjpcpg ; http://bit.Ly/1era8lt. ...Read more

L-Arginine, Vitamin K2, Gotu Kola, butchers broom, parsley, cayenne pepper, ginger root, etc. I have Raynaud's Syndrome.

Raynaud's Syndrome: Please do what your doc says but consider a natural approach. Neo 40 is a beet root product to help circulation and has some research suggesting usefulness in Raynaud's. The pain may also be from neuropathy and sublingual vitamin B12 can be used to help w/that. See your doc or a nutritionist. Peace and good health. Beet root better than l-arginine. ...Read more

Could it be okay to take rose hips, don quai, maca , fenugreek seed and saw palmetto together?

But remember: occasionally, some so-called natural products may secretly mix and adulterate some prescribed ingredients to pump up its claimed effects because such products are not fda-regulated.

Chandanabala lakshadi oil (ayurvedic oil for bigger penis)?

Chandanabala lakshadi oil (ayurvedic oil for bigger penis)?

Not likely to work.: There is no evidence in the scientific literature regarding the efficacy of these ayurvedic oils on penis size. No topical medicine has successfully increased penis size, even hormonally active ones. Penis size is determined genetically & at specific periods of development in utero, infancy, and puberty. Trying to enlarge it outside of this is like trying to change the size of any other body part. ...Read more
