I am having pain in both breast. I had a mammogram and it was normal. My doctor suggested vitamin e. What is this vitamin E not working?

Unclear??: Did you say you have taken vitamin-e or not yet? If it has been tried and did not help, ask your gynecologist to give you a short course of hormones which can often relive this type of pain in the best which is quite common (called mastalgia).Alternatively, try taking tylenol, (acetaminophen) 2 tabs twice daily during the week before your menses are due, as that is the time mastalgia is at its worst.. ...Read more

Went to OB, sore breasts, he said I need vitamin E and no more caffeine, taking biotin, vit D35000 IUD, Alive! Womens multiv. Isn't too much?

Yes, too much: As long as you are eating anything close to a normal diet and do not have any underlying metabolic disorder, you should stop all vitamins. It is the pharmaceutical and herbal medicine companies which are advertising that you need vitamins. Stop all these, and your breast symptoms are more likely to improve. And your GI tract may also thank you. ...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

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

Can alcohol cause a decrease in vitamin e?

Unsure: There are few studies in humans on this that I have been able to locate. Some of the damage that alcohol does to the body involves increases in oxidizing substances, where anti-oxidants can help prevent damage, and vitamin E is an anti-oxidant. Some people feel that extra vitamin E may be helpful in those with alcoholism, but there is no real proof of this. 15-30 mg of vit e would be reasonable. ...Read more

I am taking vitamin E for peyronie's disease. Should I take other other medicins with it?

I am taking vitamin E for peyronie's disease. Should I take other other medicins with it?

Probably: Peyronies disease is not really a "disease" with a clear cause. It is a condition where the penis is bent. The medical treatment is all over the MAP indicating the lack of efficacy. We reserve surgery for more severe cases where the bend of the penis precludes sex. Not all urologists are comfortable with the treatment of peyronies disease. Challenge your md with his true expertise in this area. ...Read more

Is there any difference beetweed natural and syntetic vitamin e? What is the difference? Can syntetic vitamin E harm you? Thanks.

Yes: Synthetic vitamin e contains only Alpha tocopherol and this strips the brain of gamma tocopherol which can lead to increased brain hemorrhage and delta tocopherol in the liver which can lead to elevated liver enzymes. Get a all natural mixed tocopherol with all 4 isomers. You can also increase vitamin e in your diet by eating wheat germ, nuts, seeds, oleves asparagus green leafy vegetables. ...Read more

Vitamin e with diane 35?

You're fine: Big doses of vitamin e are unlikely to have much effect on you one way or the other.

Is walgreens or whole foods the best brand of vitamin E supplement?

Neither: Depends on who makes it for them as neither makes their own. You need "mixed tocopherols" to benefit your health not just vit e which is usually just one form of the many and is a synthetic which is cheaper but can lead to bad outcomes. I use pure encapsulations brand, other good quality ones are from orthomolecular, metagenics. Read label and remember you get what you pay for! ...Read more

I just started Xarelto. Is my multi vitamin safe to continue taking even tho it has vitamin e in it?

I just started Xarelto. Is my multi vitamin safe to continue taking even tho it has vitamin e in it?

Multivit & xarelto: Very few interactions of vitamin E and rivaroxaban have been reported. It could possibly affect rivaroxaban's effectiveness. With that said, the small amounts of vitamin E, found in the typical multivitamin, are likely smaller than the ones causing interactions. Make sure your health provider knows you are taking both and don't stop any prescribed medications without notifying them. ...Read more
