Are there any interactions between folic acid and melatonin?

Are there any interactions between folic acid and melatonin?

No: There are no interactions between folic acid and melatonin. However, be aware that folic acid is a synthetic chemical that does not occur in nature. Our bodies must convert it to L-5-MTHF, the active form of folate. About half of people have genetic issues that interfere with this conversion, so many people get much greater benefit from taking L-5-MTHF rather than folic acid. ...Read more

Are there drug interactions between cocaine and melatonin supplements?

Are there drug interactions between cocaine and melatonin supplements?

Probably not: Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally found in your brain which we believe helps us regulate our sleep cycle. It is not known what happens if a person takes it in a supplement form for long periods of time (even just weeks or months) so most doctors like myself do not recommend it. Using cocaine, with melatonin or not, is a really bad idea. Plus, last i heard, it's illegal. ...Read more

Can minoxidil topical for hairloss cause palpitations? Can i use 5-htp, valerian and melatonin along with it?(interactions?)

Can minoxidil topical for hairloss cause palpitations? Can i use 5-htp, valerian and melatonin along with it?(interactions?)

Surprisingly, maybe: The dose used on the scalp is at least the same milligram number as the usual oral dose. while it generally doesn't get it, with irritated or scratched scalp I wouldn't rule it out. AND if it gets in, the blood pressure will drop and this can cause palpitations.. 5ht, and valerian interact through seratonin but aren't likely to give much serotonin syndrome. ...Read more

Nighty night: The worst thing that'lll happen with those meds is that you'll probably get some much needed rest! LOL....I know cuz I've 4 teenagers of my own. At least you've got a good reason to be sleeping with the melatonin and Benadryl (diphenhydramine). That should put you down for a little snooze. Otherwise, you should be good. Do you really need all those drugs? Your pharmacist can also help you with drug interactions ...Read more

The armour interacts with both the iron and magnesium making the thyroid med less absorbed, so separate these vitamins from your armour by at least 4 hrs.

Thus you will require close monitoring by your doctor and be on the lookout for any adverse effects. ...Read more

How long until laduda begins working as lamictal takes forever...also what is its interaction w / tegretol?

Speak w/ your Dr.: I am not sure what dose of Latuda (lurasidone) you are taking, but it may have to be raised if you are not experiencing a response after an adequate duration of a month or longer. Tegretol speeds up the metabolism of Lamictal and lowers its levels. You may experience more dizziness, blurry or double vision and unsteady gait with the combination. ...Read more
