A & D- very rare: One can only overdose on fat soluble vitamins (a, d, e) except vit. B6 (which should be limited to 250 mg/day). But it takes huge amounts to overdose. The average adult would need to take about 2 million units of a to overdose, or 200, 000 iu/day for several months. Vit d toxicity is rare unless one takes at least 40, 000 iu/day for months.

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
Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?
Multiple meds: That is a big load of meds. Some, such as Vitamin D, do not need a prescription or blood test. Over-the counter vitamin D is inexpensive and does not need a prescription. Even better it is already in your milk and you don't really need to buy Vitamin D separately. Do you really need all the others? Look up "NuVal" on the web and see what foods are best for you rather than meds. ...Read more

Yes, But Why?: It is generally safe to take these vitamins and supplements, or they would have been taken off the market. However, they are almost always totally useless unless you have a specific vitamin deficiency, and can be a danger. Despite the sales propaganda, we are not mostly vitamin deficient as long as we have a reasonable diet. Save your money and buy a gym membership for the most benefit. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it safe to take a multivitamin, omega-3 supplement, probiotic, vitamin D3, vitamin K2, and my SSRI antidepressant together daily?
why do you need so many supplements. If you are taking a mixed diet, , none of the supplements other than vitamin D3 are doing you any good.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Yes: You can if your doctor prescribes it. If you have a condition requiring iron supplementation then by all means do so under the guidance of your physician. Most multivitamins only contain a small amount of iron, and you may need more if you are iron deficient. Always follow the advice of a qualified physician. ...Read more
Not alone: Most prenatal vitamins contain only small amounts of calcium (~300mg) because the calcium molecule is too big to put in a combination pill. You and your doctor will need to review your dietary calcium intake, and see whether you also need a calcium supplement in addition to your prenatal vitamin. Between diet & supplement you need 1000mg calcium/day. Can get in dairy products, leafy greens, etc. ...Read more
Can i take citracal calcium plus vitamin d slow realease at the same time as centrum energy multivitamin/multimineral?
Yes you may: Yes you may. Calcium absorption tends to plateau when a single dose exceeds 500-600 mg. Even though the two together would exceed this number, you may be fine because one is slow release. Taking the 2 separately always makes absorption more efficient, but if you never remember taking a 2nd dose, taking both together would still wind up getting you more calcium absorbed than 1 supplement. ...Read more
Can i take multivitamins that contains Vit.B1 Vit.B2 Vit.B6 Vit.B12 Nicotinamide Calcium Pantothenate and Vit.C while pregnant?
Yes, however...: Every prenatal multivitamin contains all of those and more so this is definitely safe. However, the most important vitamin in a prenatal is Folic Acid (ideally as folinic acid or L-5-MTHF), esp. important in the first few weeks of pregnancy. Also eat greens and beans/lentils for folate (folic acid). ...Read more
