Medication That Contain Zinc
Suggest me some multivitamins tablet that contain good amount of zinc, calcium, magnesium.And should be safe to use?
Doctors and vitamins: I hope you understand that the various vitamin products on the market are something that most physicians would not have any expertise in. There are vitamin standards set by the government and daily recommended doses. These are all well displayed on the vitamin products available. I tell my patients to choose the vitamin of their choice. If they are males the only other caution is that no iron! ...Read more
May a product containing l-tyrosine, zinc and b-6 be used in combination with one another containing magnesium as an additional ingredient?
Hydroquinone: These products like HQ , kojic acid are tyrosinase inhibitors thus decrease the ability to create melanin making your skin tanner. Recently there is evidence the HQ may be carcinogenic thus its hard to come by these days especially in the strengths required (4 +%) Kocic acid is a good second choice and does not have the same concerns at this point. ...Read more

Could you take prenatal vitamins that contain biotin, choline, inositol, and fumaric acid name of vitamin brand nordic berries?
I do not: Like the formula. They contain 9 grams of carbohydrate and the amount of thiamin (as are the doses of all the vitamins) is too low to metabolize that amount of carb. You can look it up on line. This expresses an incredible ignorance of industry in vitamins and foods. In pregnancy, first you need a pristine diet and the vitamin supplementation should be ordered by your ob/gyn. ...Read more
Can the ingredients Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate(licorice root) and Zinc Coceth Sulfate interact with finasteride 1mg?
No: Finasteride is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor and at a 1 mg dose is primarily used in the medical management of male pattern hair loss (androgenic alopecia) and at a 5 mg dose used to treat lower urinary tract symptoms related to an enlarged prostate (BPH). I am both unaware of and would not expect any clinically significant interactions between finasteride and either licorice root or zinc sulfate. ...Read more
Can i take garcinia cambrogia with fish oil pills & a high potency multivitamin which contains green tea. Any ingredients it shouldn't mix with?
Garcinia cambogia: These supplements would be compatible, but be careful with any "high potency" multivitamins. Make sure they are all natural ingredients. You can tell by the constituents in them.

Is it safe to take anti oxidant pills containing beta carotene, selenium and zinc for more than one month?
Extremely safe: Selenium and Zinc are essential nutrients with many proven health benefits. We need to either take them as supplements or get them from diet to be healthy. Many people don't get adequate amounts in their diets. Beta carotene is a precursor of Vitamin A, another essential nutrient, and is also safe to supplement, but I feel that a mixed carotenoid complex has more benefits than beta carotene alone. ...Read more
Do all fortified foods contain cyanocobalamin or do some contain methyl or hydroxo, and which natural sources of b12, are the most bioavailable?
Most cyanocobalamin: No way of knowing if "all" have the cyano form but I believe virtually all have that form as it is the least expensive and most widely available. But methylcobalamin is the optimal form for supplementation- see http://tinyurl.com/h7scsna Some foods contain higher concentrations of B12 but the form found in food is hydoxycobalamin so all equally bioavailable. See http://tinyurl.com/j7npwg3 ...Read more

Steroids used by bodybuilders contains hormones, so does steroids which are used for nerve block injections also contain hormones?If yes which ones?
Hormones come in : Many flavors. The steroids we use for anti-inflammatory purposes have zero "body-building" properties and are the glucocorticoids. There are quite a few. We pick from the Prednisone the hydrocortisone, the dexamethasone, etc. Based on our particular needs and the properties of the steroid. Anabolic steroids (body-building) testosterone are completely different. I hope this helps a little. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How likely is aluminum poisoning from carafate (sucralfate)? I use prescription strength anti-persperent that contains aluminum also.
Not likely but ?: Sucrafate and Anti-perspirants both contain aluminum which is absorbed and stored in bodily tissues. Chronic may cause toxicity, most particularly for patients with chronic renal disease or who are on dialysis. I would advise switching to an anti-perspirant that doesn't contain aluminum such as Arm and Hammer. Ask your physician if there is an alternative to Sucrafate for your condition. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
