Is it possible for vitamin C in orange juice and ascorbic acid to affect high blood pressure medication?
Yes and no: Vit c in normal doses does not impact BP meds. Orange juice and other sweet liquids (all juice, soda, gatorade, etc) will increase your blood pressure - this will cause a relative decrease in the effectiveness of your meds. Liquids with over 10 cal/serving (except non-fat milk in moderation) are not good for you. Sweets in liquid form increase blood fats, belly fat & ultimately blood pressure. ...Read more

What makes you gain weight any vitamin or medication i can take ? I don't really have an appetite to eat so what can I do to gain 20lbs atleast?
An approach....: First make sure you don't have a severe life- threatening illness preventing you from gaining weight. That will require seeing a clinician. Once done consider other variables: dietary protein, digestion, absorption. I start with a plant based, anti-inflammatory, low glycemic, hormonally correct protein powder (1-2x/day) that is also chock full of vitamins, trace minerals, and enzymes. ...Read more
Yes, however...: You don't say which medication but it is safe to take B12 with all medications, but it should not be taken at the same time as tetracycline (take at least an hour apart). Many medications reduce absorption & thus increase our need for B12. I advise sublingual or chewable methylcobalamin. See http://umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/supplement/vitamin-b12-cobalamin & http://bit.ly/1cBhjvn. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there anything that i can do to improve my fertility? Any medication or vitamins i can take that are inexpensive?
Trying for pregnancy: A healthy lifestyle doesn't hurt, but most likely will not improve chances. If you have any risk factors like prior pelvic infection, you shouldsee a doctor since your fallopian tubes might be blocked. Otherwise, the best chances for pregnancy are by having intercourse at least every other day a few days before and around the time of ovulation.
