Probably: One of the problems with many supplements is that there is little research on safety and effectiveness. Plexus slim has many ingredients; I have reviewed them ; they are all safe and have no known interactions with the things you are taking. However, avoid plexus slim accelerator- it is hazardous! i believe anyone on Lipitor (atorvastatin) should take coq10.

Totally fine: Hypervitaminosis is a term that refers to toxic levels of vitamin a, d or e, which you clearly don't have since you are not taking any of those! biotin and Folic Acid are essential nutrients that are non-toxic and prevent birth defects. Evening primrose ; fish oil provide essential fatty acids ; are very safe. Collagen is not essential but also quite safe. You have no need to worry. ...Read more
These are the things I am taking, korean red ginseng, multivitamen, fish oil, vitamen c, vegetable protein and loratadine tablets (for allergies). Are these alright together?
Yes: There are no adverse interactions between these things. Make sure you take a high-quality multivit. At least 1/3 of adults can't convert Folic Acid to the active form, l-5-mthf ; anxiety/high BP makes it likely you need a multivit that has the l-5-mthf form. Also most adults need 5-8000 iu of d3 in fall ; winter months to achieve optimal levels- see http://bit.Ly/1ekkvkv ; http://bit.Ly/1dc7vna. ...Read more

Need a big picture: Hi, Shaun, Make sure you had a stress test to see if blood pressure is overly elevated with exercise. This is an important marker of how your blood vessels react. Echocardiogram (which you had) and functional medicine testing may help to idenitify root cause of blood pressure elevation. You need blood work, heavy metal screen, and vascular reactivity assesment, maybe meds, and supplement tune up! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
