Is it okay to take singulair (montelukast)  and B12 vitamins while using lysteda and pantoprazole I am taking pantoprazole for GERD and lysteda for heavy menstral but i feel really weak

According : According to drugs.Com, there is only one interaction to worry about from these four medications. Because of its acid suppression, Pantoprazole can cause decreased absorption of vitamin b12, though the likelihood of this actually causing a significant deficiency is unknown. Vitamin B12 deficiency can cause anemia. If you have been feeling weak lately, you may want to give your doctor a call.

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?

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 I take 400mg of vitamin E for Restless leg cramps in my legs? I have GERD will taking it increase acidity ?

Vitamin E: I'm not sure of the strength of the clinical evidence showing effectiveness of Vitamin in RLS. However, regarding your question about Vitamin E and worsening of GERD, I have not been made adware of GERD exacerbation from 400 units per day of Vitamin E. That being said, being a fat soluble, vitamin E is best absorbed from the GI tract if taken with a meal containing some fat. ...Read more
