Can you rec some vitamins and herbal supplements or OTC drugs that can help kick heroine addiction?

Can you rec some vitamins and herbal supplements or OTC drugs that can help kick heroine addiction?

There aren't any: The chances of an individual kicking on one's own is very, very low. Opioid withdrawal results in widespread pain, chills, aches/pains, diarrhea and vomiting, as well as anxiety and insomnia. It is usually too severe by day 2-3 for people to stand it, and they use again. Some meds can help a little (tylenol, motrin, pepto bismol) but real help means a doctor helping you. Please get into treatment. ...Read more

What is the exact plan which should  i follow to stop taking 10mg Abilify (aripiprazole) everyday?Any vitamin supplements?

Please see good doc: I don't know why you are taking abilify (aripiprazole). It should be slowly tapered. A variety of vitamins such as high doses of Niacin may help but i strongly advise seeing a doctor who is knowledgeable about orthomolecular psychiatry to help you get individualized treatment. You should be assessed for pyroluria, food allergies, hormonal imbalances etc. To find a good doc see http://www.Abihm.Org/search-doctors. ...Read more

Vitamin D was low 17nmol/l.I took vit D supplement 10,000 IU for 2month it become 156 nmol/l .should I take supplement always ?!or stop¡

Vitamin D was low 17nmol/l.I took vit D supplement 10,000 IU for 2month it become 156 nmol/l .should I take supplement always ?!or stop¡

Depends on sun exp.: 156 nmol/l = 62 ng/ml which is just where you want it (optimal levels are 50-80). But if you stop the levels will likely decline, so it seems wise to continue 10,000 iu/day. The only other way to get significant amounts of D is via exposure to mid-day sun without use of sun screen. If you don't get sun, then it is wise to continue supplementation.

Have you heard about the recent research about vitamins and supplements are actually bad for us and do you think we should stop taking them?

Have you heard about the recent research about vitamins and supplements are actually bad for us and do you think we should stop taking them?

No: Vitamins, in the right amount, are generally considered a good thing to do. I certainly wouldn't stop them based in a single report. Additionally, it is too broad a statement to infer that all vitamins should be stopped. More likely is the research may have addressed taking too much of one particular vitamin. Moderation is key; speak w/ your doctor for specifics as they pertain to your health. ...Read more

Eat whole foods.: Eating right is the number one measure. Cook with coconut oil. Other risk factors include mthfr mutation which can be checked for. Vit c 500 mg twice daily, vit e 200 iu mixed tocopherols daily, vit d 2000 iu daily, nac 600 mg twice daily, coq10 (ubiquinol) 50-100 mg daily, vit k 45 mcg daily, magnesium glycinate 200 mg once or twice daily as tolerated (can loosen stools). ...Read more

I take wellbutrin (bupropion) and i'm on a vitamin cleanse Advocare 24 day challenge. Can the herbal and vitamin supplements stop my wellbutrin (bupropion) from working?

I take wellbutrin (bupropion) and i'm on a vitamin cleanse Advocare 24 day challenge. Can the herbal and vitamin supplements stop my wellbutrin (bupropion) from working?

Not likely: The herbal parts of this regimen seem to include milk thistle, echinacea, and astragalus -- none of which should cause a problem with wellbutrin (bupropion). If you're also taking the fiber part of this plan, i suggest taking that separately from your medication so that absorption is as good as possible. ...Read more

Which medications should I stop taking before my male breast reduction surgery? I am not on any prescribed medications, but I do take vitamin e, gingko biloba, and a drink a lot of herbal teas. Should i stop using these herbal and vitamin supplements befo

Which medications should I stop taking before my male breast reduction surgery? I am not on any prescribed medications, but I do take vitamin e, gingko biloba, and a drink a lot of herbal teas. Should i stop using these herbal and vitamin supplements befo

It's a waste of $: Ginkgo biloba failed clinical trials, It's NOT effective. Since it's not a drug, the FDA can't stop the quacks who market it from doing so. As for herbal teas: they taste nice but a typical herbal tea brewed in the typical American way is EXTREMELY weak tea; so dilute that the likelihood of any real biochemical effect is essentially none. BURN THIS in your mind: Skepticism is good for your health. ...Read more
