Can I take  Licorice and Rehmannia for adrenal support while taking Vit E, basic B complex,Vit C, fish oil,magnesium,zantac,and Imitrex (sumatriptan) (when needed)?

Not good combination: Consult you doctor before doing anything, versus self medicate especially with your thyroid condition not being stabilized and taking migraine meds. Licorice can increase cortisol levels and make your migraines worse. Always better to be safe than sorry. Can also call your pharmacist to ask about drug/herb/supplement interaction for more information. ...Read more

What supplement/s to cover adrenal and thyroid support is the best?

Why supplements?: Your thyroid and adrenals are precisely regulated by the pituitary and other factors. If your thyroid and adrenal are functioning normally, then you don't need supplements, and they will not help you. If your thyroid or adrenals are underactive, then you need to take hormone replacement. Best done by a doctor who knows about this (eg. An endocrinologist). Not someone who sells his own supplement. ...Read more
