I would like to know what the high iron can do yo me though. It id not heridtary, I always had low iron before. I am not on any medications?

Recheck labs: It is very difficult for a person to have high iron if he does not take iron-containing supplements and doesn't have a hereditary or genetic disorder where his body holds onto iron inside the liver. People with that disorder get liver damage. One can recheck the tests, which is not just the iron level, but also ferritin, transferrin, and transferrin saturation. A doctor can discuss the results. ...Read more

Im female, 21 years, 72 kg.I took medication for infection and after finishing my white blood cells were again high (18000).Now im takeing iron and b9?

Maybe you are normal: I don't hear anything that says infection at present ( fever, redness, swelling, pus, pain). High WBC does not equal infection. What kind of infection did you have? Why are you taking iron and B9 (sic)? ...Read more

I take verapimil for a heart arrythmia. Is it true that I should not eat grapefruit as it might ramp up the potency of the medication?

I take verapimil for a heart arrythmia. Is it true that I should not eat grapefruit as it might ramp up the potency of the medication?

True: Grapefruit (juice) interacts with a number of medications, including verapamil; so never take meds with grapefruit juice; use water, preferably, and a sufficient quantity to wash the med down the esophagus into the stomach. Verapamil + grapefruit can cause very low blood pressure and/or slow heart rate and changes on ekg. ...Read more

Possible: There are some anecdotal reports of b vitamins helping with anxiety. Inositol has recieved gotten a fair amount of research with mixed results. Its safe to say there is no proof at this point that these compounds really helpbut probably wont hurt and may contribute to your overall health. If your anxiety is severe consider mainstream treatments from your healthcare provider first. ...Read more

Hello,should i take Vita Zone tablet for daily or not.Vita zone tablet is a high potency of multivitamins and minerals. I need a good advise. Thank u.

Sounds ok: An over-the-counter adult multivitamin (with or without minerals) is fine to take once a day. If a person does not eat or drink much in the way of dairy products, then an adult vitamin D and calcium tablet is also needed. Some people just take a TUMs Smoothies once a day for their calcium supplement. Different brands of daily multivitamins likely do not have much difference in benefit to the body. ...Read more

How should I take "rus tox" in a high potency for chronic back pain?

How should I take "rus tox" in a high potency for chronic back pain?

Perhaps not: High potency homeopathics are a modern fashion. Dr. Hahemann, inventor, never used over 15x in his lifetime. Theoretical argument can be made for adhering to empirical studies and evidence that early homeopaths obtained with low doses. What theory can explain efficacy of solutions and sugar pills totally absent of any molecules of therapeutic material after avogadro's number has been exceeded? ...Read more

I was prescribed Levofloxacin and cant have iron within two hours. are there any low iron foods I can eat before taking my medication?

I was prescribed Levofloxacin and cant have iron within two hours. are there any low iron foods I can eat before taking my medication?

Levofloxacin: It is important to take oral levofloxacin at least 2 hours before or 2 hours after any antacid or mineral supplement containing iron, calcium, zinc, or magnesium since these bind levofloxacin and prevent its absorption into the body. Dietary intake of foods should not significantly alter the uptake of this medication. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I have Hemoglobin (low iron) is there anything I can do ? Or any medications, vitamins I could take to fix this?

Ok then: we all have hemoglobin. Some have low hemoglobin (anemia), of which one of the types of anemia is due to low iron. Discuss with your doctor as this is many times due to blood loss, and it's sometimes necessary to treat what's causing the iron deficiency, and not just replacing iron. But in meantime you can probably start some simple Iron supplements. The pharmacist can point them out to you. ...Read more
