Hello.: Hello. I am wondering if your hypothyroidism is being treated there are many general physicians who feel comfortable treating thyroid conditions. Internal medicine doctors and endocrinologists also take care of endocrine conditions. Approaches are usually similar. If you have a number of conditions, it may require require different supplements as well as medications. If your hypothyroidism is not being treated, I would ask your provider about this.

CoQ 10: Statins as a group deplete the liver of coQ10 levels. CoQ10 is an ubiquitous substance which is crucial for any cellular function. Get good quality CoQ10 like Qsorb- Vitamin shop or order from willner chemist online, you can talk to one of the holistic pharmacists who will help you pick the best one for you. Wilvite is one of the best multivitamin & calcium 500 mg daily.

Complicated: In reference to vitamins: a generic over the counter multivitamin (store brand is fine) will supply all the daily requirements. For advice regarding vitamin D and calcium, more information is necessary including renal function, bone density, fracture history, family history, liver function and co-morbid conditions - this is best determined by your mother's family doctor.

What vitamin supplements should one avoid when taking 75 mg plavix, two 81mg aspirin and 40mg crestor (rosuvastatin) daily?

What vitamin supplements should one avoid when taking 75 mg plavix, two 81mg aspirin and 40mg crestor (rosuvastatin) daily?

High dose E BUT...: Vitamins are by definition essential for health so I'm wary of any drug that makes it necessary to avoid vitamins. The only vit. That interacts with these is Vit E, which in high doses thins blood so may increase risk of bleeding with Plavix (clopidogrel) & aspirin.However, this potential risk pales in comparison with the known hazards of combining Plavix (clopidogrel) & aspirin.

Which vitamin taken in large doses, what drugs are associated with liver injury?

Which vitamin taken in large doses, what drugs are associated with liver injury?

Vitamin A: So don't eat that polar bear liver raw (it contains mega-doses of vitamin a)! vitamin a doses greater than 100, 000 iu / day are well known to cause liver damage, and even 25, 000 iu at a time can be dangerous. Beyond that iron can damage the diseased liver (hap c, cirrhosis), and herbal supplements can sometimes contain liver toxins. And you thought valerian was good for you!

Why vitamins or other drugs gotta be taken with food? And what happen if I take them without food

Stomach upset: Usually, it is to prevent your stomach from being upset. With your history of bloating, I would recommend you take any vitamins or drugs with food unless the pharmacist recommends you take them on an empty stomach (this is rare)

Isthere is drug or vitamin which incrase sexual desire?

Isthere is drug or vitamin which incrase sexual desire?

Sex drive: This will depend on why the sex drive is diminished. Many causes exist, each with a different treatment. Medication side effects, illness (diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety...), low testosterone, fatigue/sleep deprivation, even aging or relationship, money, and work challenges can cause reduced sex drive. A comprehensive medical exam with this question in mind is the best place to start.

Can vitamin B2 cause a false positive on a drug test?

Can vitamin B2 cause a false positive on a drug test?

No: I thought this was a strange question, but in researching it found out that this is claimed on some websites. However, I am quite certain that b2 does not cause a false positive on drug tests. It can make your urine bright yellow & some who drink a lot of fluids to dilute their urine before a test will sometimes take b2 so the urine looks yellow rather than clear. Will not cause false positive.
