Avatar n tn But, the trouble with supplements is that you can overdose very esily, unless used judiciously or prescribed by a doctor. For instance, Viatmin A and E are easily available from our daily food and being fat soluble, they get stored in our tissues and overdosing is very easy. I do not know, why the Companies are packing such easily availble vitamins along with some other difficult to get nutrients like zinc, omega3 or B12. So, while taking supplements, always do consult the doctor.
Avatar m tn I've been taking a GNC Mega Men's multivitamin for about a week and I've noticed a huge increase in my anxiety levels. My father took the same multivitamin for a few months and became mildly more anxious in that time period as well. I'm wondering if there's any correlation between taking a multivitamin and increases in anxiety... I've heard that, if anything, multivitamins are supposed to better your mood, but that's definitely not happening with me. Thanks for your help!
Avatar m tn I have recently started taking men's 50+ vitamins, and just noticed a sudden bald patch in my beard. I didn't even think about it until I saw this post. I don't think its a coincidence. What is the solution? Should I stop taking those?
Avatar f tn MultiVitamin (contains the daily requirements of selenium and zinc, and it just good for him) 1000mg of Vitamin C (good for the swimmers) 1000mg of Flaxseed Oil (good for the swimmers, but I don't think he is taking enough) 800mg of Folic Acid (improves health of swimmers - much like for females and is good for overall health) Bless his heart, he has taken them everyday so far this week :) I'm taking: prenatal vitamin 2000mg EPO, from AF to O (not supposed to take after O, because it can cause
1126418 tn?1326169592 Wow thanks everyone. The only Vitamins I take right now are, Calcium with with Vitamin D added and a Super B-Complex with added vitamin c and folic acid. I am looking into buying some fish oil/omaga 3 vitamins. I was told by some people that because I hate fish and never eat it that I should take these.
649848 tn?1534637300 Although weight is undeniably a risk factor for a host of medical comorbidities, especially at its extremes, it's not a guarantee that any of them will occur. And so the use of a scale to infer the presence or absence of health ignores the actual person standing on the scale. Similarly, scales don't measure lifestyle. There are scads of patients with obesity doing all of those good things—exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, not smoking, cooking with whole ingredients, etc.

Avatar f tn He will not cut down on anything else and I have been trying to get him to take fish oil tablets and men's health vitamins at the very least? I am so nervous about all of this especially since reading about people going cold turkey? what the heck are ZAPS. He will not let me into his head, and tells me not to nag if I bring any of this up!
535904 tn?1213468238 i'm like you, if i eat unhealthy, i worry about my heart. there are many studies that have been done on nutrition and your mental health and how what you eat effects you. i think many kids with adhd and other problems would do so much better if their parents would take the sugar and fast food away. as far as the omega-3 caps, i would start out on a low dose because they can cause nausea and other problems if you know what i mean.
Avatar m tn Calcium can go to places in your body that is not good for your health such as building up in your blood vessels and causing some types of kidney stones and can even leach calcium out of your bones. This vitamin makes sure that does not happen and that calcium goes into the bones and teeth where it belongs.
Avatar n tn I am sorry for your Dx. I am a female but also now hypo.Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar m tn Since you have GERD your stomach is already sensitive and vitamins that you buy at drug stores and grocery stores could make things worse. Go to a health food store and look at the ingredients. Also ask some one that works there to help you find the best multi vitamin for you. Take care.
Avatar m tn Vitamins and Supplements are helpful for us. They helps us to maintain our health and fitness. But be sure to take these Vitamins And Supplements in limit. If you take these vitamins and supplements over the prescribed dosage this can be harmful for you. So taking Vitamins and Supplements is good but don't take it without an expert's suggestion.
Avatar m tn I think this would be a very good time to schedule a complete work up to find out exactly why your so fatigued and experiencing brain fog. Set up an appointment and get to the bottom of your health issues.

Avatar n tn I do know that I was taking a TON of different vitamins and minerals (from my family's healthfood store) when I got pregnant with Lilith. I still believe that had an effect on finally conceiving a healthy baby.
Avatar m tn I dont know why I am in Men's Health. I am a woman who had some issues with my arms/hands and finally my left lower leg. I was waking up in the night with my arms and hands completely asleep. I had no function of my fingers for a few minutes and it scared me. This has been happening more and more and not only at night. During the day my right arm will just go numb. I got blood work done & had an EMG test taken. Then one morning, my left shin and kneecap were completely numb. No feeling.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
Avatar n tn My fiance is on "Saw Palmetto", "mens one a day with prostate health" "Antioxidant's", and "Vitamin C". HAHA. We found out that he had a very low motility ratio.. So we read up and found that all of these things can increase his chances of getting me pregnant.
Avatar f tn While I'm home today, I'm going to work on vitamins, hydrating, getting my sheets and bedding washed, and eating light meals of bland food. I leave for a trip a week from tomorrow and the doc seems to think that by then I'll be free and clear of the withdrawal symptoms since I wasn't taking a super high dose. So, here are my day 2 recommendations from a novice. 1. Use bedding that can all be washed.
193905 tn?1325400789 I understand completely what you mean about the tapering but your health comes first here - and if that means tapering, then I think you should seriously consider that. Your goal here is to become healthy again not make things worse by trying to do something in a way that isn't reasonable given your history. Please be careful and get that Dr. on board with your decision to quit (a very wise decision by the way). Good luck to you!

Avatar n tn They were happy to take my money and give me vitamins and B12 shots (this did nothing for me). So I asked my regular doctor and she gave it to me. At walmart you can fill a prescription for just about a dollar a pill for Phentermine. CVS and smaller place cost more to have it filled. Most medical insurance will not pay for the doctors appointment or the pills. It ended up costing me $35 for the doctors visit (I was given a 5 minute time slot) and $30 dollars for the pills every month.
Avatar m tn It largely depends on what forms were Vitamins and minerals made. For example... Vitamin D is best to take as D3 (not D2). Vitamin C absorption is only about 20% if done as ascorbic acid and other forms... the only form of Vitamin C which seems to be best absorbed is Liposomal Vitamin C which seems to achieve about 95% absorption into the body due to Liposomes which protect C from the harshness of the gut and deliver it to the cells. In terms of Zinc...
Avatar n tn Very in tune with my body, exercise and take vitamins and I am otherwise healthy, but I am starting to worry about the severity of the episodes.

Avatar m tn I DID some studying on vitamins and foods...im finding that you can get all you minerals and vitamins just from foods alone...BUT...organic foods commercial foods are low the nutrient scale...KEEP IT SIMPLE.
Avatar f tn They say one drunk will eliminate a year's supply of B12 (necessary brain food for mood) so grab some Men's vitamins too and buy some dark chocolate (that helps mood elevating seratonin)...I say all this because that's what I've done and hubby has researched about the good of dark chocolate - get him thinking about something...dig in girl! We're here with ya! Is he under more stress about anything that he hasn't told you about?
