Quercetin: This is a plant flavonoid that is found as a supplement. It's touted uses are for allergies and prostate health.

Supplements: I don't know why you're taking all this stuff. Although these supplements (what is "NR"?) are compounds naturally found in foods, taking megadoses is not "natural"? I don't know of an interaction between these supplements and goiter, but if you have a goiter, you should have it checked out by a doctor. ...Read more

Hello doctor, can you please recommend a pro-biotic supplement for my kid who is 6.5 yrs old. Can you please recommend a quercetin supplement for kids?

I have an allergy to honey (pure and processed) and was wondering if something like quercetin works to get rid of it. I also am vegetarian and have had a kidney stone before.?

Here are some. ..: Known to us, the underlying causes for allergy and kidney stone are associated with personal constitutional factors which usually can not be cured but just be modified so to minimize the recurrence.

Can supplements help with nerve regeneration after a median nerve transectionand a 3 tendon repair? I am taking acetyl I carnitine, fish oil and quercetin.

Can supplements help with nerve regeneration after a median nerve transectionand a 3 tendon repair? I am taking acetyl I carnitine, fish oil and quercetin.

Minimal benefit if: Any. Nerves grow very slowly and if the distance is too great they may not regenerate. While those supplements will give some benefit but most of the research suggests little benefit. I personally feel they are still good supplements and overall relatively safe, but I just don't want to lay too much confidence in them for regrowing nerves, give it time, at least 6-12 months to even thing about it. ...Read more

Have a 17-year-old taking Bactrim sulfamethoxazole tmp wondering if there will be any drug interaction if she takes an herbal allergy pill that I got at the health food center that has vitamin A, C, pantothenic acid, calcium, zinc, quercetin, n-acety

Probably OK, but...: I doubt there is any serious potential for an adverse interaction. However, one of the problems with "natural" medicines, herbal products, and nutritional supplements, etc is that their exact contents often are unknown, And even when known, there is little research on interations with other drugs. So hard to be certain -- but probably no problem. ...Read more

I take flax oil, d3, cinnamon, multi vitamin, quecertin/c, e. Can I safely take something else to protect against illness?

Possibly: The supplements you mention are ok, but nothing really prevents illness like a good diet and exercise regimen. Also getting a good night's sleep every night to keep stress at a minimum also helps. Would recommend a b-complex and calcium in addition to the above, but check your vitamin d level periodically with your doctor to make sure you don't have too much. ...Read more
