Lipitor and vitamin b

Common Questions and Answers about Lipitor and vitamin b


Avatar n tn I have been on Lipitor for 5 years now and have tolerated the drug fairly well. Back in June I had a sexual related close call where I was treated with an immunoglobulin shot and 2 hep b vaccine shots. Starting in August I began to experience strange sensations in my upper right back. Ultrasounds, scopes etc were done and all was fine. Things settled down until around 5 weeks ago and the sensation came back.
393419 tn?1228450993 Hi all. I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. Here's my question. . . I'm trying to improve my health overall, and am taking vitamin supplements & just want to check in with those of you here who are supplement takers. . .
Avatar n tn Long standing diabetes may lead to this symmetrical glove- and stocking- like distribution of neuropathy which can be treated with good sugar control and medications like vitamin B complex or gabepentin (these should be discussed with your doctors first). From the medications you have listed, I believe that none of them can directly relate to these neuropathic symptoms, but I agree with you that their interplay might have some bearing.
Avatar n tn I seem to be intolerant of these drugs and have tried Crestor, Lipitor and Lescol. My PVC's go absolutely nuts when I take them. I have done my own tests by going off and on them. I consistently get worse when I'm on them. I take C0Q10 and a whole bunch of supplements including magnesium to no avail. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Most of this just becomes a belief system.

Avatar m tn A) No anginal symptoms in response to exercise and with evidence of ischemia. B) The isotope study revealed evidence of ischemia in the inferior and lateral wall of large size. C) Left ventricular ejection fraction is 36%. Clinical correlation is required. Recommend medical therepy with continued observation. This is likely representing stunned myocardium. Cardiologist had me stop all excersize at that time. same meds as above but took me off lisinopril.
667829 tn?1297981723 Some drugs for high cholesterol, such as the statins Lovastatin and Atorvastatin (Lipitor), are Category X drugs," warns Dr. Lund. "People who need cholesterol-lowering drugs and are pregnant, considering becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding, should not take these drugs, and instead try to treat their cholesterol without drugs.
Avatar n tn which drugs/treatments bring in the most $? My Tirosint and generic T3 med aren't going to net any doctor as much as scripts for Lipitor, Crestor, or an echocardiogram, stress test, etc. My rant for the week............
Avatar n tn Hi all, For several months I've been having a lot of the weird symptoms posted on this board: red hand and toes, toes turning purple/blue when i sit or stand still for a while, return to normal color as soon as I elevate my limbs. I've also been to the Dr. and gotten nowhere. After reading Heavenly Bird's suggestion about the Candida overgrowth I decided to try an anti-candida diet and after a couple of weeks I started to notice some improvement. So then I called my Dr.
Avatar f tn Only the summer months is there enough sunlight and then it gets well past 100 degrees and it's difficult to be outside. My vitamin D level is deficent so I'm on vitamin D and the SAD lightbox also helps with this. I really notice the difference using my SAD lightbox. I also am taking OTC supplements for depression: 5-HTP; L-Tyrosine; DL-Phenylalanine; Mucuna Pruiens, L-DOPA and SAMe. The 5-HTP is really helping my sleep and mood considerably!
Avatar n tn I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
Avatar m tn Many weeks ago one of her doctors suspected neuropathy and recommended B complex vitamins but not any particular brand. Because the local pharmacies don't have a choice of GMP certified brands we're probably going to get the B complex in a multivitamin without any added herbs from a GMP certified practitioner brand that uses the amount of B vitamins usually used for neuropathy. Since she's on cardiovascular medications I'd like to avoid possible interactions when we choose a multivitamin.
Avatar n tn Also I would suggest at least a multi-vitamin, B complex, and a high dose of folic acid and Vitamin E at the least. Green tea might be the most effective at combating vasoconstriction. The prescription nitrates, such as Imdur are dead ends, if you want to improve your condition. A couple of years ago I used St. John's Wort, successfully for depression but no longer need it. Any substance that increases circulation is probably also good for depression.
932338 tn?1247129279 Try to feed your brain and nervous system with the essential fatty acids it needs to rebuild, like fish oil, flax seed oil, borage oil, and evening primrose oil.Get a quality multi-vitamin/multi mineral, with high in B-Complex, especially B-12.Take spirulina, as the RNA/DNA in the spirulina are essential and very important to re-build the material that makes up your brain tissue and nervous system.
Avatar n tn I have coronary artery disease, and i take 20 mg of lipitor and 2 low dose aspirin a day. My doctor is new and tells me my problems are my lipitor, they may have to lower my dose. My old doctor had me on 10 mg a day, and somehow the pharmacy gave me 20 mg and it stuck at that. My docotr never ordered that, but i ended up always getting it. However i have a a 90 percent blockage of my coronary artery and had surgery, but no stent.
Avatar n tn i know a few people that have taken vitamin b and said it works so you know what im gonna ring my chemist see if i can mix it with beta-blockers and if i can im off to the health shop, cheers for the advice p.s dont worry if your wee goes bright yellow its the only side effect!!!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn I'm overweight, take a daily prescribed regimen of baby aspirin, multi-vitamin, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin D, and 6mg warfarin. I'm a lymphoma cancer survivor (2 years beyond chemo), don't smoke, drink alcohol only occasionally in moderation and even less caffeine, exercise somewhat irregularly, had lots of ear aches as a child associated with bronchitis but because I'm 61 now I don't think my childhood ear aches have anything to do with it.
Avatar n tn Why would I have this pain (two nights now) and only in a horizontal position? I take no prescription drugs except Lipitor (10 mg every other day for years).
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).

Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar f tn My PC ran many tests, and my hepatic panel is normal, my anemia profile is in range, all my chemistry numbers are ok, eosinophils high. I have vitamin D deficiency and B12 borderline, and tested positive for AMA antibodies 107. My mom wad diagnosed last year with drug induced autoimmune hepatitis, and you helped us a lot months ago. I understand high level of AMA is related to PBC and I was wondering if you can give any advice on that. Also, could Hashimoto cause AMA to be positive too?
Avatar m tn Could B12 deficiency cause racing heart beat that skips a beat (currently taking Flecainide and Toprol to control that), headaches, dizziness, depression, irritability, mood swings, loss of sex drive, joint pain, and insomnia? I also have high cholesterol and triglycerides (taking Lipitor and Tricor). In addition I take Topamax as a preventative for migraines and Ultram and Meloxicam for joint pain, and aspirin for heart health. Thanks for any info you can give me at this point.
Avatar n tn I'm now down to a T.C. of 147 on Lipitor and hope to go onto a dual therapy of Lipitor and Welchol when it shows up in the Pharmacy. Hopefully that can raise my H.D.L. from 30 which is probably the causitive factor of my CAD. I have been a little afraid of high doses of Niacin. Last Weekend I hiked up, in the snow, from 5,400' at Washington Pass to a lake at 6,600 feet.
786881 tn?1236560228 Hello, I have Hashi's also, I had severe muscle issues and also taking Lipitor for High Cholesterol, although it turned out the the muscle issues were caused by a lack of Vitamin D and Magnesium,(Which seems to be a fairly common symptom of Hashi's) Thanks to the members here, I no longer have the secere muscle aches and spasms, and pain and stiffness in my neck, they advised me to take Vit D and Magnesium, I started taking 800 units a day of Vitamine D and 40 mg of Magnesium.
Avatar m tn Since surgery: Cannot sleep past 4 AM -Wired/adrenaline rush, can’t fall back to sleep -Afternoon crash Shaky/nervous (made much worse by antibiotics/prednisone?) -Worse in morning, better as the day goes on Hard to concentrate Frequently sweaty at night Coated tongue Position sensitive (prone better, upright worse) Burning sensation in forehead/top of scalp.

Avatar f tn My doctor says yes, but I wanted to check with this forum and see if anyone has that with their Thyroid condition. I also have red and burning knees and feet. Does anyone else have this?
Avatar n tn Seen in tissue damage, especially heart and liver, this enzyme is normally elevated. Vitamin B deficiency and pregnancy are two instances where the enzyme may be decreased. Normal Adult Range: 0 - 42 U/L Optimal Adult Reading: 21 ******************************************************* AST/SGOT (Aspartate Aminotransferase) NORMAL RANGE: 5 - 35 U/L This is an enzyme made in liver cells, similar to the ALT.
Avatar n tn My husband has a cholestrol level of 270 and does not want to take lipitor or like drugs. He's fit, slim and plays tennis 3 times a week. His diet is perfect, all fish, veggies, fruits. No dairy or meats. We're befuddled, help!
