Is it safe to take prenatal vitamins and levaquin (levofloxacin) together? Do i need to wait hours in between?

Is it safe to take prenatal vitamins and levaquin (levofloxacin) together? Do i need to wait hours in between?

Wait, if convenient: Some recommend separating the time one takes Levaquin (levofloxacin) and when one takes vitamins by a couple of hours. This is probably from a thought that the two might interact and decrease the effectiveness of the antibiotic. Not sure if this thought has been proven true. ...Read more

I take 10 mg of lisinopril daily. Wondering how dangerous it is if I forget to take it every once and a while?

I take 10 mg of lisinopril daily. Wondering how dangerous it is if I forget to take it every once and a while?

Not detrimental: It takes a tremendous amount of dedication to stay on a medical regimen every day of your life! it is important that med be taken as prescribed, but we all forget here and there. For lisinopril, it is not detrimental if you missed a dose especially if you have been taking it regularly (you have a good, steady level of it in your body already) and that your pressure is under good control. Good luck. ...Read more

Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safe : Tylenol (acetaminophen) is safe to take during pregnancy. I'm not sure what the the pills are that you are describing. Generally tylenol (acetaminophen) can be in two forms of 325 mg or 500 mg per tablet. You can take one to two of those tablets every 4-6 hours as needed. You should not take over 4, 000 mg in a day. ...Read more

How long is it safe to take phenteine to lose weight? An is it safe to take while taking syntthroid?

How long is it safe to take phenteine to lose weight?  An is it safe to take while taking syntthroid?

Yes and no!: Fda approved, it can have side-effects: tachycardia, arrthymias, and an increase in blood pressure. The problem with phenetermine is that it usually will deliver a 10-15 lb weight loss and it's effects diminish and do not continue. It works by both suppresing appetite and increasing metabolism. If your thyroid dose is correct, shouldn't pose an issue. If high, serious problems could arise! diet! ...Read more

If i already take multivitamins, is it safe to also take vitamin c and vitamin d? Not asking if it's necessary. Just asking if it is safe to take

If i already take multivitamins, is it safe to also take vitamin c and vitamin d? Not asking if it's necessary. Just asking if it is safe to take

Safe and wise: I advise my patients to take 500-2000 mg of Vitamin C 2x/day, though larger amounts are also safe (the only issue is more than 5-10,000 mg a day may cause loose stools). I advise adults take 5-8000 iu of Vit D3 a day in fall and winter, year-round if you don't get much sun in spring and summer. Too much D can be toxic but usually at doses of 40,000 iu/day or more.

Is it safe to take valerian root every night to help me sleep?  It helps a lot but i don't want to take it daily if not safe.

Apparently safe: Like many natural products, research is limited, but a fair amount of research has been done and as far as is known valerian is quite safe and there are no (as of yet) known problems with long-term use. It is certainly far safer than pharmaceutical alternatives.
