Is it ok to take B6 in 25mg for low progesterone, due to a short luteal phase defect , would taking this alomg with my womens one a day vitamin be ok?

Yes, but try more: Yes, it's ok, but most experts suggest taking a total of 100-200 mg/day. However, it is wise to be cautious as doses over 200 mg/day have the potential to cause a reversible neuropathy (though that does not usually occur in doses below 1000 mg). Start with 100 mg/day.

Is it safe to take calcium bone health and women's one a day multi-vitamins on the same day?

Is it safe to take calcium bone health and women's one a day multi-vitamins on the same day?

Yes, totally safe: There is a very wide safety margin in taking vitamins and minerals. Women's one a day has relatively low doses of most of its ingredients. It does have 450 mg of calcium carbonate, but this is a relatively poorly-absorbed form of calcium so additional calcium, esp. Better-absorbed forms like calcium citrate is advised.I also advise taking a total of 4-5000 units of vit. D for bone & overall health. ...Read more

Is it bad to take a woman's one a day vitamin n hair and nail vitamin at the same time or in the same day?

Is it bad to take a woman's one a day vitamin n hair and nail vitamin at the same time or in the same day?

Usually not but...: The only possible danger is taking too much of certain vitamins but that is highly unlikely. To become toxic one would need to take 40, 000 iu of d, 25, 000 units of a, 1500 iu of e or 250 mg of b6, usually for months, and no one-a-day & hair &nail will have that much, but one should avoid more that 10, 000 iu of a when pregnant (but beta carotene ok). However, see my comment re: one a day:. ...Read more

Is the well woman plus omega 3 6 9 a good brand of one a day vitamin to take? Thinking about getting pregnant this year. Eating habits are not good.

Yes: I have checked out the ingredients and it looks like a very good quality multivitamin, better than most! however, I am concerned that your eating habits are not good. Vitamins are not a substitute for a healthy diet. A good diet is crucial during pregnancy. Please start improving your diet now- limit sugars, artificial sweeteners & fried foods, have salads & more vegetables & fruits! good luck! ...Read more
