Can you take prenatal vitamins for no particular reason, or would that overdose you with vitamins?
Not harmful: A prenatal vitamin would not be harmful. However, if you get a good, balanced diet, you would not need it, with one exception; a supplement of 400 micrograms daily of folate (folic acid) (found in multivitamins and prenatal vits) is recommended for women even before they get pregnant to reduce the risk of some birth defects in the babies. A good iphone resource for preventive topics is my health checklist 2012. ...Read more

Can i take weight loss meds with zegerid? I need an appetite suppressant or something but not sure which meds i can take with the zegerid
Needs monitoring: You need monitoring when taking antacids/ppi like zegerid with common prescription appetite suppressants because they can increase the level of the suppressant.
