Is it better to take vitamins at night or morning?

Is it better to take vitamins at night or morning?

Depends: That decision should be based on what you're taking and eating at that time. Calcium containing vitamins, including multivitamin tablets, should be taken apart from a meal, particularly a dairy or high calcium meal. My basic advice is that it is probably a waste to take a supplement that is present in high levels in the meal you're eating, also, it is acceptable to substitute a food for a vitamin. ...Read more

I am taking 25mg of quetiapine and I seem to have no energy in the morning. Is this normal and would it be best to take a multi vitamin at night?

Depends.: Quetiapine is a sedating major tranquilizer and also long acting. It might help if you take this medication earlier in the evening such as 7 or 8 PM and so you will feel more energetic the following day. It is best to take your multivitamin in the morning after breakfast. ...Read more

I had a stool this morning that is very dark brown/black. Not tarry or smelly. I take no medication except vitamin. I drank wine last night. Blood?

Dark stool: Iron makes the stool black, so if it in your vitamins that could be the cause. In fact the reason blood makes the stool black is because of the iron in blood. Discuss with your doctor /urgent care over next 2 weeks ...Read more

I'm taking 50mg ammitrypline at night and 75mg venafaxaline in morning for chronic lower back pain. Is it ok to take vitamin b as I read this helps.

I'm taking 50mg ammitrypline at night and 75mg venafaxaline in morning for chronic lower back pain. Is it ok to take vitamin b as I read this helps.

Yes: Lower back pain treatment with vitamin b has not been scrutinized to same degrees as later medical interventions have; therefore, it's not possible to base conclusive opinions on evidence-based medicine. However, congratulation anecdotal experience of physicians indicates a potential benefit. Be it a placebo or organic effect, the potential benefit gained far out do any potential harm. ...Read more

M 8 weeks pregnant, is there any Problem If I take biotin 5000 in morning and nestabs abc prenatal vitamins capsule n soft gel capsule one at night?

M 8 weeks pregnant, is there any Problem If I take biotin 5000 in morning and nestabs abc prenatal vitamins capsule n soft gel capsule one at night?

Probably not: But biotin deficiency is rare and biotin readily available from dietary sources so that the need for the supplement is questionable, especially in such a large dose. There is really no data to indicate harm in taking it, but in pregnancy we like to err on the side of caution and avoid things that are not clearly indicated. ...Read more

Is it safe to take levothyroxine50mg, adipex37.5mg, vitamin b complex, c & e, magnesium & iodine supplements in morning? I'm on atenolol25mg @ night?

Is it safe to take levothyroxine50mg, adipex37.5mg, vitamin b complex, c & e, magnesium & iodine supplements in morning? I'm on atenolol25mg @ night?

Safe not advisable: Taking all those medicines together is probably safe but not advisable. Levothuroxine has to be taken on an empty stomach with a glass of water and no bother meds. This means an hour before or 2 hour after a meal. Food and other meds affect absorption. Vitamins and minerals best absorbed with food. Adipex should be taken with a meal I believe. ...Read more

Is it safe to take b vitamins and eat a protein bar every morning and still eat 2 portioned meals throughout the day with fruit I also work 5 days out of the week am a high school senior and workout every night cardio and some strength training to try and

Food for breakfast: I'd prefer you eat a regular healthy breakfast and use the protein bar as an in-between meal supplement. Bars are a good quick source of nutrition but shouldn't replace whole nutritious foods. And the B complex vitamins with breakfast would be fine. ...Read more

I'm in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and my morning sickness has subdued. At night I take prenatal vitamins an hour after eating & I always feel very nauseous & I end up vomiting. Why is this happening?

I'm in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and my morning sickness has subdued. At night I take prenatal vitamins an hour after eating & I always feel very nauseous & I end up vomiting. Why is this happening?

Maybe iron.: Prenatal vitamins have more iron in them than regular vitamins which may be upsetting your stomach. You could taking the vitamin as half after breakfast and half after dinner to see if that helps. I'd also take it right after dinner (don't wait an hour). You could try a different brand (but they all have iron). Start with half tab twice a day with food and let me know if it helps -. ...Read more

If I have morning sickness an hour-or-so after I take my daily prenantal vitamin, is my baby still getting all that it needs?

If I have morning sickness an hour-or-so after I take my daily prenantal vitamin, is my baby still getting all that it needs?

All is still good: You only experience some nausea, not vomitting and so the vitamins are still being absorbed. Thus, baby should be fine. Take your vitamin with food may help the nausea a bit. Also, taking it later in the day may help a bit as well, as morning sickness is worse in the early morning. It should get better with time. Congrats on the pregnancy and good luck. ...Read more

Is "geriatric pharmaton" multi vitamins really help full? Should I take it every morning?

Won't hurt: You say you're 25 years old, so you don't sound very geriatric, but geriatric vitamins won't hurt you. The need for vitamins depends on your diet. If it's healthy and well balanced, there's no evidence that you need to take vitamins.

I'm taking levothyroxine in the morning. How long does it take to be absorbed by blood? I take vitamins in the evening.

I'm taking 2, 000 mg of vitamin d daily. Should I take it all at once or take 1, 000 mg in morn/1, 000 mg at night? And best to take with food?

I'm taking 2, 000 mg of vitamin d daily. Should I take it all at once or take 1, 000 mg in morn/1, 000 mg at night? And best to take with food?

At once with food: I hope you're taking 2000 iu ; not 2000 mg which is 80 million iu, a massive overdose. There's no need to take d more than once a day, in fact some people choose to take a large dose once a week. It's better absorbed after food. While 2000 iu/day is adequate, optimal blood levels are 50-80 ; most adults need to take 5-8000 iu/day to achieve that. I advise vit k2 with d see http://bit. Ly/1dc7vna. ...Read more

I take 50 mg of metropolis morning and evening along with two diuretics, a friend suggested that I avoid vitamin k. Do I need to avoid any foods?

I am going to make: Several assumptions about your question. First, I assume you are taking diuretics and metopROLOL, a beta blocker. There should be no issues with vitamin K with these drugs. You do have to be careful not to deplete potassium (chemical symbol K!) on the diuretics. Vitamin K rarely needs to be supplemented, but intake (watch green leafies) needs monitoring if you are taking blood thinners/warfarin ...Read more

Can I take all my vitamins and 60mg of Prozac (fluoxetine) in the morning without eating? I don't eat till a few hours after I wake up and this will be easier.

You can try.: You can if you do not have gastrointestinal side effects with Prozac. It may cause mild nausea. Why are you taking both Prozac and Lexapro (escitalopram)? Not best to take more than one SSRI. ...Read more
