What vitamins should I be taking? I am 22 years old, female, 140 pounds.

It depends...: This depends a lot on your diet, exposure to environmental toxins, genetics etc. Vitamins are no substitute for a healthy diet, but for most I advise a quality multivitamin, ideally with natural E (avoid synthetic E) & the L-5-MTHF form of folate, without additives like titanium dioxide or polyethylene glycol.Additional Vit. C, about 1,000 mg 2x/day is wise, as well as extra Vitamin D.See comment: ...Read more

Depends on diet: If you eat a good diet with foods that contain calcium, you may not need as much calcium. I would go through your average weekly diet with a nutritionist or doctor and see what they think. You may also want to consider a bone scan to look at your overall bone health. ...Read more

Primary/best source: nearly all vitamins: Food, Not pills, unless low in particular one. In food they are all mixed together, body absorbs whats needed, dumps rest. Thus focus on healthy high fat/protein, low carb non-processed foods (not pills) First, not pill adds.

Vitamin D level: Knowing your vitamin d level would be helpful. If you are deficient (and depending how deficient), you will need supplementation so that you can get your level back to normal. If your vitamin d level is normal, then you may want a maintenance dose. D3 is cholecalciferol, a standard form that is taken orally. D2 is ergocalciferol, if taken is in a large 50k international unit (iu) dose once weekly. ...Read more

Discuss with your Dr: I have found that this is a rather common side effect of my patients on various SSRI medications. I think there are some ways to help, but I would start with discussing the problem with your prescribing Dr. Some patients find this a temporary side effect, while others need to add another medication or change their medication. ...Read more
