Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin, l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?

Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin, l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?

Should be fine: I don't see any significant problems taking all of these supplements. If you have any side effects, however, it may be a challenge to know which is the culprit. Typically, side effects from these are minimal or not existent.

If you are taking the prilosec due to the others causing GI complaints, you may want to reconsider this strategy. ...Read more

Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?

Is it safe to take Prilosec, glucosamine, msm, chondroiton, chlorophyll, calcium citrate, multi vitamin, and vitamin d together and daily?

Multiple meds: That is a big load of meds.
Some, such as Vitamin D, do not need a prescription or blood test. Over-the counter vitamin D is inexpensive and does not need a prescription. Even better it is already in your milk and you don't really need to buy Vitamin D separately.
Do you really need all the others?
Look up "NuVal" on the web and see what foods are best for you rather than meds. ...Read more

I recently asked about taking a multivitamin with probiotic while taking omeprazole and domperidone, could you tell me is it better to take the multiv?

Can take both: You can take a multivitamin with omeprazole and domperidone. Omeprazole can decrease absorption of certain vitamins/minerals such as B-12 and iron. A multivitamin can help counteract those vitamin/mineral losses. A probiotic is different than a multivitamin. It helps to populate the healthy bacteria in your gut, which can help prevent constipation, diarrhea, and other illnesses. ...Read more

I want to add vitamin B12 to my daily regimen but I take Prilosec everyday for gerd. What kind of dose should I take for energy/heart health?

Vitamin B12: You can take oral vitamin B12 of 1, 000mcg daily. It's not necessarily helpful for energy or heart health, especially if you are not B12 deficient. Prilosec when used for a very long time can cause B12 deficiency. Prilosec should be taken about 30 minutes before meal, and should not be taken together with vitamin B12 as it can decrease the absorption of b12. ...Read more

Can Beaus lines be caused by any of the following? Thanks Stress/anxiety Omeprazole Hashimotos Levothyroxine Multivitamins

Can Beaus lines be caused by any of the following? Thanks Stress/anxiety Omeprazole Hashimotos Levothyroxine Multivitamins

Or just happen: Most "stress" is actually good -- I need some "stress" to kick me into action so I can be productive and ultimately useful and fulfilled. Very often, "Beau's lines" just happen for no reason whatever. I'm glad you're managing your Hashimoto's, and I just wish everybody were as good an observer of their health as you are. ...Read more

Is it ok to start taking 5 htp 100mg for the first time. I wasn't able to find the 50 mg. I'm taking for appetite control! Can I take with prilosec?

Is it ok to start taking 5 htp 100mg for the first time. I wasn't able to find the 50 mg. I'm taking for appetite control! Can I take with prilosec?

Yes: 5-htp will help increase your serotonin which I guess is what you're after to help. 100mg is ok, can slowly increase. I'd suggest adding relora 2 x daily as well as green coffee bean extract but that must be taken at least 30 min prior to each meal to be effective. I'd try to get off the omeprazol - bad stuff long term as far as nutrient absorption. Get a digestive enzyme and probiotic instead! ...Read more

Could u take geri-lanta with prilosec?

Yes for a short time: Geri-lanta (aluminum/magnesium/simethecone) is indicated for upset stomach, heartburn bloating/gas. It works on neutralizing acid in the stomach. Prilosec (omeprazole) suppress acid production. Take ger-lanta after meals/at bedtime as needed for 1-2 weeks and Prilosec 30 minutes before breakfast for at most 2 weeks. If symptoms persist/worsen see a doctor. Side effects headache/diarrhea/constipation. ...Read more

Can you take Prilosec and pepid tohether?

You can: The two medicines work in a different way but for the same purpose. I would not recommend for you to take both of them since you can take care of your problem with one of them whether you have gerd, peptic ulcer disease. There is step up and step down approach of treatment for GI condition the two medications are used. Omeprazole is stronger and more effective then Pepcid (famotidine). Try Pepcid (famotidine) first. ...Read more

Prescribed sucralfate (4 a day) prilosec (1 a Day) penicilin vk (4 a day) What is proper order to take medications? Seems complicated to know

What is being: Treated here? The carafate (sucralfate) and prilosec make sense, but I don''t know why the Pen Vk is being used. Do you have an infection and your stomach is sensitive to penicillin, causing GI upset and burning/irritation, and the carafate (sucralfate) and prilosec are to reduce these symptoms? Please let us know. More information is needed. If my guess is correct, it would be best to take carafate (sucralfate), then prilosec, then Pen ...Read more

When you take Prilosec it changes the flora in your gut. If you stop taking Prilosec does the flora in your gut go back to how it was before?

When you take Prilosec it changes the flora in your gut. If you stop taking Prilosec does the flora in your gut go back to how it was before?

Bacterial overgrowth: In the stomach and duodenum has UNKNOWN clinical significance in health people. This effect has only been described in very ill Intesive Care Unit patients.
This change in bacterial population quickly reverses when the proton -pump inhibitor (egf Prilosec) is discontinued!
Hope this helps!

I get ulcers like once every 4 months. Is there anything wrong with me? What can I do besides take Prilosec and be good for a couple more months?

Strange: Your question makes no sense to me. How do you know you have ulcers? Did a doctor tell you that? How did he diagnose you? Furthermore, I've never heard of peptic ulcer disease in a 25 year-old, unless you are abusing NSAIDs. Who told you to take Prilosec? Do you know how this drug works or what the risks and potential benefits are of taking it? ...Read more

20mg daily before...: ...breakfast might suffice, but you haven't told us what NSAID and at what dose you're taking, nor what kind of NSAID damage you may already have suffered. No drug is without risk, so use the lowest effective acid blocker medication for prophylaxis against NSAID-injury. ...Read more
