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 This 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. Please see http://bit.ly/VHiLuH & my comment: ...Read more
Vitamin A: So don't eat that polar bear liver raw (it contains mega-doses of vitamin a)!

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. ...Read more
Wishful thinking: Jg, all of us -- myself included -- want to believe disinformation campaigns offering false hope. Yes, real medicine has problems. But think -- no conspiracy could be this vast. Real science is the most cutthroat of all human activities. If mms (industrial-strength bleach to drink), "vitamin b17" (usually amygdalin) or dichloroacetate worked, a real scientist would prove it & win the nobel prize. ...Read more

Mega T Green Tea: Unless the drug test is looking for caffeine (which is in these supplements) along with other substances usually checked for, it's unlikely to be positive.

That said, mega green tea says its contents are "proprietary, " meaning you don't know amounts of constituents from the label. ...Read more

Testing: Some medications can be tested for to assure there are adequate levels in your system. Mostly all drugs are digested and "dissolved" in your "system" and metabolized. Some pills do have an outer coating, but may have a git (gasro-intestinal timed system) with a small pin-hole in them that slowly releases the drug. These may be visible in your stool, but rest assured the medication is usually out. ...Read more
