I've been taking taurine powder in my protein shakes is this safe?

Possibly however : Taurine is possibly safe for adults and children when taken by mouth in appropriate amounts. Taurine has been used safely in adults in studies lasting up to one year. It has been given safely to children for up to 4 months. People enrolled in research studies have not reported any side effects connected with the use of taurine. However, there is one report of brain damage in a body-builder who too. ...Read more

Zoloft (sertraline) 150 mg, magnesium 650 mg, calcium citrate+vit D3 340 mg, spirulina 3000mg, a day just wondering if this combination ok. Been having bad cramps.

Magnesium?: I hope a doctor more expertised will also reply, but I do hear that Magnesium can interact w/ Zoloft (sertraline) (and other things) to imbalance healthy gut function. A HT physician, Dr. Randy Baker is often knowledgeable about these issues - but the pharmacist you use may have info and advice. Best! ...Read more

I am currently taking escitalopram 10MG. So today i drank a whey protein shake supplement that contained 495 MG of L-tryptophan will anything happen?

Likely not: If you have had no problem with the medication, the shake is not likely to cause any problem. Even though tryptophan is said to improve sleep , the evidence is very slim. Even if it does, just sleep it off. ...Read more

Is there any interaction between isolate whey protein and klonopin (clonazepam)? I'm asking because protein contains amino acids and i suppose its not a good mix with klonopin (clonazepam).

Is there any interaction between isolate whey protein and klonopin (clonazepam)? I'm asking because protein contains amino acids and i suppose its not a good mix with klonopin (clonazepam).

Protein binding: We mostly have information on protein binding of Clonazepam (klonopin) in the context of organ failure compared to normal. Any Amino Acid you eat, or any protein is usually well regulated by liver and kidneys and likely has little impact on its metabolism as a drug unless you have organ failure and altered protein metabolism. ...Read more

I am taking klonopin (clonazepam) twice daily for anxiety. Will eating maca root powder as a supplement conflict with my medication?

Nobody really knows: There are thousands of supplements advertised to do all sorts of magical remedies. Very few supplements have real research studies to show benefits (but manufacturers make claims, based on theories, animal tests, testimonials, chemical similarities, etc... but not oon real research because real research is hard to do and is expensive to do).

Sertraline & Ginko?: ginko can be activating. So, if you're taking sertraline, an SSRI, in part to treat anxiety, Ginko could actually cause some anxiety. In patients who are being treated primarily for ??depression, Ginko may help. The key is to discuss the risks/ benefits & side effects of this change in your regimen with your rx'ing MD before you make it! So ring ASAP. ...Read more
