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

Omeprazole has been: Reported to cause hypotension in 50% of people in the first month of treatment. None of the other medications have been reported to cause hypotension as a significant side effect i.e.: <5%. although some cases have been reported with all of them it is not clear as to the mechanism or clinical significance.

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.

Can I take my prescription of Prilosec today because I took nexus this morning?

Gastritis: I assume you are talking about Nexium (esomeprazole)? Both Prilosec and Nexium (esomeprazole) are proton pump inhibitors that decrease acid production in your stomach - taking both will not help any extra, choose which one works best. Read more
