I don't currently take a multivitamin. Is there any evidence that taking one daily would do me good? I am 48 yr old male in relatively good shape.

I don't currently take a multivitamin. Is there any evidence that taking one daily would do me good? I am 48 yr old male in relatively good shape.

MVI (multivitamin) Prevention: There is evidence for a modest benefit for cancer prevention from the long-running physicians's health study. When people do experience benefit from a mvi, (multivitamin) it is usually due to the presence of b vitamins. There is better evidence that mood can be improved and the negative effects of stress can be diminished with an adequate daily intake of otherwise safe, water soluble b vitamins. ...Read more

Can we take multivitamins with 100 % RDA daily and one neuroboin tab with each multivitamin. Neuroboib has b6, b12 and b1.Is it safe to take both?

Can we take multivitamins with 100 % RDA daily and one neuroboin tab with each multivitamin. Neuroboib has b6, b12 and b1.Is it safe to take both?

Unneccessary: B vitamins are all water-soluble, so excess is excreted in the urine. Therefore, it is generally safe to take extra B-vitamins, but there is no medical reason to do so, unless you have been diagnosed with a deficiency or are at risk of a deficiency due to certain medications or conditions. In general, try to get your nutrients from healthy foods. ...Read more

Will a daily multivitamin such as one a day affect birth control? I am takin Aviane 28 tablet.

Not related: Over-the-counter multivitamins are OK to take with many medications including birth control pills. I am not aware of any issues with Aviane 28 bcp. If you have any nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, call the doctor for appointment. Drink plenty of water and eat a healthy diet. ...Read more

Why? EatRealFoodBest: Selling both processed foods & vitamins are Big Business; have little to do with health, indeed lots of evidence they drive disease: Obesity, Diabetes, CVDs, Cancer.

I'm taking theragran stress tablet which is a multivitamin. One tablet daily. Bec. Of my hair is this too much (overdose)?, recently troubles in colon

Need a bit more info: Before we can answer your question, it would be helpful to know: 1) if you have any known deficiencies or medical conditions; 2) what is your concern about your hair; 3) what troubles have you been experiencing with your colon; 4) what testing has been accomplished and with what results. ...Read more

In the psychiatric hospital, I was given a "therputic Multivitamin" daily. Do I need to take one? What to look for? (Take prescribed folic acid)

In the psychiatric hospital, I was given a "therputic Multivitamin" daily. Do I need to take one? What to look for? (Take prescribed folic acid)

Multivitamin: A "therapeutic multivitamin" given in the hospital setting is typically very similar to a quality general multivitamin that you can buy in the store, such as the Centrum brand. Whether you need to take one or not depends on your condition. Folic acid (B9), thiamine (vitamin B1) and vitamin D3 are commonly prescribed separately depending on condition. Your primary MD is the best person to ask. ...Read more

Is it ok to take a daily multivitamin and hair, skin & nails is it ok to take a daily multivitamin (equate one daily women't pro-active) and hair, skin & nails (spring valley collagen support) together daily or will I be overdosing on vitamins? Please he

Is it ok to take a daily multivitamin and hair, skin & nails is it ok to take a daily multivitamin (equate one daily women't pro-active) and hair, skin & nails (spring valley collagen support) together daily or will I be overdosing on vitamins? Please he

Actually: Actually one of the best resources for over the counter "mixing" is your the pharmacist in your drug store. They know tons about otc supplements that doctors don't deal with.

Biotin (found in eggs) is a great hair and nail supplement. Black currant oil (capsules) have been recommended for thinning hair, too.

But show your pharmacist both boxes with the supplement amounts and see if he/she notices any potential overdosing. ...Read more

I'm taking theragran stress tablet one tab. Daily which is a multivitamin bec. Of hair loss. No deficiency could this be overdose? Slight cramps in colon

I'm taking theragran stress tablet one tab. Daily which is a multivitamin bec. Of hair loss. No deficiency could this be overdose? Slight cramps in colon

Should be fine: Some controversy exists over whether a person who eats a balanced diet with lots of vegetables/fruits needs to take a vitamin. But over-the-counter vitamins are formulated to provide a generous amount of vitamins, but not excessive or toxic. Not sure it will help hair loss, but very unlikely to be harmful. Bowel cramps may be signal of mild constipation, sometimes seen with vits. Push fluids/fiber ...Read more

Can I take vitamin a pills with a daily mulitvitamin if I also take fish oil capsules? Would they be a good alternative for acne medication?

Can I take vitamin a pills with a daily mulitvitamin if I also take fish oil capsules? Would they be a good alternative for acne medication?

Poor alternative: You'll need to take enough vitamin A to make yourself sick (and I mean SICK) before you can expect it to clear your acne. Get a topical retinoic acid derivative for your skin rather than the overkill approach that systemic administration offers. If this doesn't clear you, get with your personal physician for help. Fish oil's your business -- the recent studies are disappointing. ...Read more

Is it safe to take a multivitamin everyday? I'm not on any medication. And also, are they effective?

Yes it is and needed: In addition to a balance diet of Complex Carbs, Quality Proteins (plant and/or animal) and Essential Fats, a quality MVI (multivitamin) is an important consideration & is effective. Because our soils have been possibly over-farmed, we are losing some of the nutrient value of the produce grown. And, for that reason, along with the fact that most people eat a SAD (Standard American Diet), a MVI (multivitamin) should be added. ...Read more

Yes, it's safe: It is safe and there are no interactions. The use of multivitamins is so ingrained in our society. If you eat healthy and right, there is no need to take and spend money on all those multivitamins. Your food has them.

Is Colace (docusate sodium) (Docusate 100 mg) safe in 31 week pregnancy? My prenatal multivitamin has Docusate as well. Is there any safer medication for constipation?

Is Colace (docusate sodium) (Docusate 100 mg) safe in 31 week pregnancy? My prenatal multivitamin has Docusate as well. Is there any safer medication for constipation?

That is safe: Constipation can be an issue during pregnancy. So the docusate is important to reduce the amount of strain or vasalva pressure you put on your entire system when you're constipated and trying to have a BM. So you are safe to keep constipation at bay by taking a stool softener (docusate). ...Read more

I'm 22 yrs old male 77kg. I take oxycodone, bromazepam, multivitamins, xanax (alprazolam).... I know these medications kill my liver. What medications should I take to save my liver? Thank you

I think at this: Point the major issue is not what you should take in addition to your current drugs - but rather what medications can be removed from your current medication regimen. Work together to optimize these medications. Take care. ...Read more

Can vegetables be substituted by taking daily multivitamins?

Can vegetables be substituted by taking daily multivitamins?

NO!!!: I am a big advocate of taking vitamins, but that is no substitute for a healthy diet and does not begin to make up for a lack of vegetables in our diets. Vegetables do contain vitamins and minerals, but contain hundreds of other extremely healthy substances- flavonoids, polyphenols, anthocyanins, organosulfides, carotenoids etc. As well as fiber. It is wise to eat a good variety of vegetables. ...Read more

Would it be fine to take a daily multivitamin twice a day?

Daily multivitamin is ok for healthy female of 43year older?

Yes-maybe: Previously, it was not recommended & is still controversial. However, many women do not get all the nutrients they need. Ideally, it would be best to get your nutrients from 'real' food & exposure to sunlight (re vit d). Nutrients are best absorbed from real healthy food. Calcium doesn't appear to be well absorbed from supplements, & they may even be harmful. And watch vit a intake-too much is bad. ...Read more

Is it safe to take two different types of multivitamins daily?

Probably: Safe, probably, but why? If you are young and relatively healthy, you probably don't need any multivitamins at all. If you do feel the need to take one, ask your pharmacist for a complete multivitamin, and take one daily. Eat a variety of healthy minimally processed foods, drink plenty of water, and you should be fine in the absence of specific illness. ...Read more
