Some countries define dietary supplements as foods, while ...Read more
Hi I am bipolar and I take meds. Will workout supplements affect me negatively? I take nitric oxide and creatine and am just wondering if they affect my brain chemistry or how my meds work?
No: There are some "nitric oxide supplements" on the market used by weight lifters for muscle building. Actually Nitric Oxide is a gas produced spontaneously by the body that is important in a number of biologic processes. There is no evidence that "supplements" alter this significantly. For those weight training, a healthy diet, adequate hydration and proper technique are the keys to strength gains. ...Read more
Probably none: I have seen conflicting studies. Many suggest that it is arginine which may be included as a supplement that releases a small amt of nitric oxide. Which may increase endurance. Seen other studies that say eating nitrates for breakfast may raise levels later in the day. ...Read more

See below: Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels & thus increases blood flow. Ginkgo thins the blood. So their is possibility of bleeding problems if both are taken, especially if one also takes ndaids or coumadin (warfarin). Discuss the benefit-risk ration of these 2 with your fp or internist or hematologist. ...Read more

Are there any interactions possible with Lexapro (escitalopram) and a nitric oxide supplement such as nitrocut? : http://www. Nitrocut. Com/supplement-fact-sheet/
It's possible but: Likely not. Ocular migraine is due to spasm of the retinal artery ; Nitric Oxide causes dilation or widening of the blood vessel-just the opposite. But then a paradoxical or opposite can occur. Take care ; god bless u! http://www. Drugs. Com/sfx/nitric-oxide-side-effects. Html. Http://www. M.webmd.

Yes, you may. ..: Of course, you may use both together. But, if the information pertains to you, I would suggest, if I may, please don't attempt to engage in sex more than 1-2 times per weekly, but at least, be graciously to allow & give the body an ample time to recharge and recovery from the expected refractory period after each ejaculation. Otherwise, a man will doom to fail in sex performance. Best wish... ...Read more
Not practical: Nitric oxide is an important mediator of something called endothelial function, that, among many responses, can induce dilation of blood vessels. Some foods and drugs and enhance Nitric Oxide production for good vascular health, but as a significant method to control blood pressure...Not so much. ...Read more
Can vs should: Can you take these supplements together? I suppose but you'd need to ask the manufacturer as there is no 3rd party oversight regarding dietary supplements, unlike OTC & prescription medications. Check out http://www. Usatoday. Com/search/dietary%20supplement/. BTW, you didn't ask, but no OTC testosterone "booster" works aside from stealing your money. Stick w/exercise, nutrition & sleep. ...Read more
I take nitric oxide supplement everyday. Is it ok to drink alcohol with it? 1-2 shots, not heavy drinking and not often. Once every few months
Nitric oxide: Is made in the body and has enormous significance. It is governed by yin and yang----not too much and not too little. I don't see how you can imitate mother nature by taking it and it is potentially harmful. ...Read more
Nitric oxide supplements -- what is their role in reducing hypertension and cardiovascular disease?
Nitric oxide: Nitric oxide was thought to be an endothelial relaxation factor which is released from endothelial cells to smooth muscle cells and relaxes them to lower resistance and lower blood pressure. There has been no randomized controlled study to test the benefit of supplements in reducing hypertension or cardiovascular disease. ...Read more
What is the role of nitric oxide (no) supplements in reducing hypertension and cardiovascular disease?
Vasodilator: Nitric oxide is a naturally occurring compound released by the healthy lining of blood vessels (endothelial cells). It acts both as a vasodilator and also prevents blood clots from forming. Nitric oxide (or its precursor l-argenine) supplements are not recommended as first-line treatment for HTN or cardiovascular disease. We don't have strong scientific evidence that it works. ...Read more
I'm thinking of trying nitric oxide supplement, good idea? Will it hurt or help, I'm interested in maintaining good heart health.

Is it safe to take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and workout whilst using nitric oxide supplements?
No: I wouldn't think it's safe to take Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) during workouts. Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is an amphetamine which can function like adrenalin. Your blood pressure and heart rate could go up too high. Probably even dangerously high, depending on the dose, potentially causing a stroke or heart attack. Why risk it? ...Read more
I am taking finasteride 1mg for hair loss. So can taking a weightllifting supplement like nitric oxide be safe to take along with finasteride?
Should be fine.: It is safe to take them at the same time. Finasteride reduces the activity of nitric oxide synthase in the body, which reduces circulating nitric oxide levels. Supplemental nitric oxide may reverse this, but there is little scientific evidence that supplements actually improve weightlifting gains. ...Read more

I'm a 16yrs old bodybuilder I want to buy nitric oxide. What is its side effects? Do u recomended for me? And how much doze should I take to be safe?
Nitrous Oxide?: You do realize that you are asking this question of real physicians? I cannot think of any medical or health benefit for you to use nitrous oxide on your own. The physicians on health tap are not going to be acting like a drug dealer and not providing you with warning about drug use and abuse and the dangers of addiction. ...Read more
Dysnea + cough, negative mannitol test, high nitric oxide, normal FCV & FEV1, very low MEF 25, low DLCO, high PEmax & very low PImax. What disease?
See pulmonologist: If the corrected DLCO is low, I would suspect interstitial lng disease. However it is difficult to make a diagnosis based on test results alone and I would thus recommend that you consult a pulmonologist. If your FeNO is only slightly elevated (35 ppb range), it may mean nothing. But if highly elevated, then an eosinophilic inflammation should be considered. ...Read more
Exhaled nitric oxide elevated, mannitol test negative. Nothing to see in CT. Severe dyspnea with normal lung function and cough. Any suggestion?
Other causes: Exhaled nitric oxide need to be over 35 ppb to be considered abnormal. Severe dyspnea may be from a cardiac issue and if the problem occurs with breathing air in, it may be from vocal cord dysfunction. An ENT doctor may be able to confirm the diagnosis. Let me know what turns out eventually ...Read more
