Not certain: Since it is so difficult to demonstrate any clear benefit, the answer is that intelligent meal planning is important, but these supplements are probably a waste of money for most people.

Can i take these vitamins together: fish oil and calcium/magnesium with vit d and prenatal vitamins?
Some: The fish oil and prenatals are fine together. Ask your doctor how much calcium and vitamin d you need based on your diet. It may be worth getting a vitamin d level. If you need to take the additional calcium, it's probably best to take it apart from the prenatals, which also usually contain calcium. ...Read more
Can omega 3 fish oil supplement from anchovy, mackerel,menhaden,sardine and tuna reduce schizophrenia?
Vitamins Supplements: Nope. I know of no physician who would just randomly put you on or recommend any vitamin or other supplements at age 23.

Those supplements: in combination are not a problem. Perhaps a more important question would be why do you take them all? If you have health concerns please see your doc or a nutritional consultant.

I am taking herbal supplements fish oil, estrogen, multiple vitamin, hyaluronic acid, pumpkin seed oil. Are these safe to take with each other?
Not really, but why?: Who knows? They may not even be safe by themselves, as you never really know what's in them to begin with. Why are you taking them in the first place. What are you attempting to fix, and how are you going to tell if any of them help -- what criteria are you going to use. They will commonly interact adversely with other supplements and also with prescription meds. Avoid at all costs. ...Read more

Just started aciphex (rabeprazole) can I take with my medication klonopin inderal remeron vitamin d and fish oil?
No worries w/Aciphex: There appear to be some interactions between your current meds: the Inderal may reduce the fish oil effect, and the Klonopin and Remeron combination may cause increased CNS depression (more sedation). However, adding Aciphex (rabeprazole) to the listed medications should not cause any problem. ...Read more
Poor source of D: Most fish oil has little or no vitamin d. Cod liver oil can be a good source of vit d but most brands of cod liver oil have had the vit. D mostly or entirely removed.

Started taking fish oil and vitamin d and noticed a slight increase of ALT levels up 30 from 80 to 124 ?
This is serious: Both these numbers are very concerning. You've had a liver biopsy and you have a right to know what's going on. You're 23 years old. Are you drinking too much? Have you been checked for hepatitis B and C, hemochromatosis, Wilson's, autoimmune hepatitis and NASH. Are you allergic to the medications you're taking for your anxiety? These questions need to be settled -- or you may pay with your life. ...Read more

Vitamin B12 and D generally cause no nausea. ...Read more

Can vitamin d, fish oil, and vitamin C be taken at the same time? Or should they be spaced out through the day?
OK to take together : It is fine to take these together. Vitamin d and fish oil are best taken after a meal as they are fat-soluble. Vitamin c can be taken any time but is best taken at least twice a day, as it is not stored in the body (unlike d and fish oil) so will only stay in our bodies for several hours. ...Read more

Is taking cymbalta, (duloxetine) fish oil, vitamin d, b-100 vitamins, a good way to fight anxiety if so how much of each do I need?
Yes: Medication is just one part of taking care of anxiety. Cymbalta (duloxetine) around 60 mg will work well, but has to be approved by your doctor and tapered up from 30 mg. The supplements you mentioned don't treat anxiety. B complex can help. So can valerian root. These must be in conjunction with exercise, diet (no caffeine) and therapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
