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

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

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

Does lisinoprol high blood medication give you renal failure?

Does lisinoprol high blood medication give you renal failure?

Llisinopril?: Hello~ NO it does not GIVE you renal failure. We use it in hypertension and in diabetics because it INCREASES pre-renal blood flow and protects AGAINST renal failure. BUT ~ if you HAVE some renal failure, the mechanism of it's action means you have to use it with care and not at all in frank renal failure. The most important issue being its POTASSIUM (K+) sparing qualities. Thanks ...Read more

Can I combine diabetes drugs and multivitamins at the same time?

Approximately what percent of people diagnosed with hbp are considered resistent to multiple medications? The cause is renal nerve activity?

Approximately what percent of people diagnosed with hbp are considered resistent to multiple medications? The cause is renal nerve activity?

Depends: It depends on how resistant is defined. Different studies use different definitions. In my experience, true resistance is rare and usually due to inadvertant use of otc meds that antagonize the antihypertenisives, artifactual HTN due to the "white coat" effect, suboptimal regimens, etc. Renal denervation is a new procdure that is gaining popularity and is not a miracle but can help selected people. ...Read more

I am a renal transplanted man, nowadays I am suffering the disc extrusion of c6-c7 compressing spinal cord. What is the medication?

I am a renal transplanted man, nowadays I am suffering the disc extrusion of c6-c7 compressing spinal cord. What is the medication?

For what?: It's not clear to me what medication you're asking about. An immunosuppressant because of your kidney transplant? Or something for pain control? If latter, minimize use of nsaids like Ibuprofen given their risk to harm kidneys etc. In this case, consider Acetaminophen (paracetamol in india ; elsewhere), tramadol ; other opioids. Discuss your concerns w/your family doc ; nephrologist. ...Read more

Can I take solodyn, Advil or tylenol, (acetaminophen) and multivitamins together? What are the potential drug interactions? Side effects? Thanks.

Not at same time: Solodyn (minocycline) has many interactions; taking with calcium (usually found in multivits) can reduce absorption- they should be taken at least 2 hours apart.
Solodyn (minocycline) kills our friendly intestinal flora which can lead to yeast overgrowth ; a wide range of side effects. It's wise to take probiotics ; not use it very long. Topical antibiotics ok. Regular Ibuprofen use can cause ulcers ; GI bleeds. See comment:. ...Read more

Is it safe to take brain-enhancing multivitamin supplements w/ pharmacetuical drugs such as zyprexa (olanzapine)? Also do side effects from zyprexa (olanzapine) fade over time?

Probably, sometimes: Research has shown high doses of vit c, e, b3 ; b6 prevent tardive dyskinesia, a serious possible side effect of zyprexa (olanzapine). I don't know what's in the supps you're considering but there are no interactions between zyprexa (olanzapine) ; nutrients to the best of my knowledge so it's likely safe. As for side effects, sometimes they fade over time but unfortunately not always. Reducing dose often helps-see comment:. ...Read more

Why can it be dangerous to administer drugs to patients in renal failure?

Why can it be dangerous to administer drugs to patients in renal failure?

Medications in RF: Many medications and/or the byproducts that come from taking a medication have to get out of your body by way of your kidneys. Also, some medications can, at high levels in your blood, damage your kidneys. Virtually every drug given to a renal failure patient needs to first be looked at from the standpoint of the need to alter dosing before being given. This is really important. ...Read more
