One with iron: A multiple vitamin a day with food and one that contains iron would be beneficial in a menstruating 15 year old provided there are not iron related illnesses in the patient or the family (hemochromatosis). They are over the counter. Women lose iron through the menses. Megadose vitamins or unusual regimens of vitamins are not necessary. Keep it simple! generic is fine! ...Read more

Unless you plan...: To take dangerous and illegal drugs, you will just grow to whatever height your specific genetics will dictate. You have maybe a year yet before the final growth plates close and you will stop growing taller. ...Read more

My five year old girl has no appetite . How do u get her to eat again? Is there any over-the-counter vitamin that can be recommend.

My five year old girl has no appetite . How do u get her to eat again? Is there any over-the-counter vitamin that can be recommend.

Discuss with PCP: If your kid is growing at a normal rate & participating in peer activities, i'd leave her appetite alone. At 5 they are growing at a steady 3-4 lb/yr & 2-3 inches. They rarely eat a balanced meal but do have a balanced week.They often feed well only 4-5 days a month. If you want to buy vitamins, buy them, but recognize that you're likely just creating expensive urine. ...Read more

Not necessarily: If you eat a healthy whole food diet with plenty of veggies, some fruits & nuts, quinoa & plant based proteins/beans & you will feel great. Vitamins are important for people who do not have access to healthy foods, have GI malabsorption issues, are picky eaters or have other issues. "If you eat well you will not need medicine, and if you do not eat well no amount of medicine will help you!" ...Read more

I have acne and dark circles ...i am 20 years old girl .. I want to use kojic acid from vitamins company USA .. would that be safe ??

I have acne and dark circles ...i am 20 years old girl .. I want to use kojic acid from vitamins company USA .. would that be safe ??

I wouldn't: If you use a depigmenting cream (and this stuff isn't a vitamin), you risk disfiguring yourself. It probably won't touch the dark circles. You need to manage your acne like the adult that you now are. You can do it. If topical benzoyl peroxide has not cleared you in two weeks, your physician can give you prescription-strength Rx to add. Be mature and discerning. Best wishes. ...Read more
