Avatar f tn I know it sounds really mean and unnatural, but I have a phobia of old people. [Mostly people ages 60+] When I get around them, I become paranoid and if they get to close I have a panic attack. LOL this sounds really funny, but I’m trying to be as serious as possible. If I go out to eat I find my self unable to eat my food if I have an older person as my waiter. The more close relatives in my family age the more distant I grow from them.
Avatar f tn Look, I know most people don't like the idea of anorexia. But that's not what this is. I'm just asking for someone to recommend a vitamin, that's all. I appreciate all that'speople trying to help me see the error of my ways or whatever, but I just want a vitamin :-)I obviously don't live alone, I couldn't be anorexic even if I wanted to be!

Avatar m tn I am a 25 year old female with poor eyesight (it's about a -7 in contacts). I was wondering if eye vitamins such as iCaps, or any other eye multivitamin, would benefit my eye health at all. While I'm not expecting it to improve my eyesight (is this even possible? And how?), would it have any benefits or effects? Are ocular supplements worth taking in general?

Avatar f tn Doctors are mostly afraid of all the 'fillers' in vitamins. They are ok for normal people but are toxic for Cirrhotics. As stated it's a case by case thing. Check with your doc.
Avatar f tn Thanks for your reply! I think you are right! It's the same thing my husband keeps telling me. My blood work came back normal for things like magnesium and potassium, which was my main concern, having heart arrhythmias. Thanks to the other responses as well!
Avatar m tn Talking to my brother a few days ago I found out my 19 year old niece has been taking vicodin for about 2 years and as the story goes it is now out of control. She has been buying and stealing them from wherever she can. My brother was unaware of my prevoius problem so I figured it was time to open up to him about my experience with pain killers spiralling out of control.
Avatar f tn They find a need to get some control over their life anyway they can. It is sooo sad.... You do for these people everything you do for a child, except they know how humiliating it is and a child doesnt.

Avatar m tn Can some of you seasoned vets tell me what Vitamins would be recommended for someone on day 45 clean??? 35 year old male........I got so many different ones from the early stages I don't know what the heck to take any more.... Thanks all!
