Avatar n tn As you age, taking balanced food is all the more important. 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.
Avatar n tn Hi, The golden rule is unless recommended by a doctor, do not take supplements, get the necessary nutrients directly from food only. Supplementation can very often overdose your body with vitamins and minerals, which can adversely affect. In your case, stop if possible, the supplements for few days and see if the symptoms go away, if so, do not take them, orelse, talk to your doctor about the symptoms.
8793709 tn?1409594060 m currently taking 3 different supplements (1) pregnacare, a pregnancy tablet that most women in UK take, (2) Calcium Sandoz, a calcium efervescent that my doc in Switzerland prescribed because Pregnacare doesnt contain calcium, and (3) Balance PL, a protein powder that my doc here in India prescribed to mix with a glass of milk twice a day (she knows about the other two supplements i take).
Avatar f tn Is it ok to take prenatal pills and folic acid supplements plus B12 I'm thirty five and trying to get with child again I have only been pregnant once and it was an ectopic pregnancy with the the loss of one tube..
Avatar n tn Can you overdose on folic acid? Can taking a high dose of folic acid endanger your health? Well, first of all, the folic acid maximum dose has been established to be 1000 micrograms, though there have been no significant reports of folic acid overdose. While this is true, excess folic acid (in the milligram levels) has been seen to mask symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency. Also, excessive amounts have been found to prevent action of some medications such as anti-epilepsy.
Avatar f tn Follow the directions on the package and you will be fine. Overdosing is possible, but only if you take too many. My doctor told me to start taking them when I said I wanted to get pregnant.
242912 tn?1402543492 I really don't know if figs are harmful for dogs or not. My instinct says they probably aren't (in very very small amounts)....but as I said I'm not sure. Anyway, even if they were bad news for dogs they would not have caused the cancer in his leg (is this osteosarcoma?) Again with the avocadoes. Yes I have heard they are not good for dogs. But I doubt very much if they would have caused his cancer. Vitamin D is Vitamin D whether it is prepared in a veterinary med, or a human one.

If so what are the side effects they cause and what should the supplement amounts be?
Avatar f tn Lots of water....folic acid like brocolli and spinach. Dont overdose on vitamin supplements so if your already taking them just have a healthy and balanced diet. Im half way through my nutrition degree so its been really handy learning all this for myself as my last pregnancy was 10 years ago.
Avatar f tn What other supplements/vitamins are you ladies taking or suggest to take besides prenatals? !
492869 tn?1285018933 Are you currently taking any vitamins and/or supplements to treat your Dysautonomia symptoms? Elaborate, or discuss your response below if you will like.
547836 tn?1302832832 My Gastro said no vitamins with iron supplements. He said eating foods with iron is okay, unless you overdose on spinach. Costco sells the Kirkland brand Multiple Vitamin with no iron, which I've taken daily for years...
Avatar m tn Well, I believe that vitamins, minerals, herbs, are ALL important, they need to be taken on a daily basis for them to really be effective however. You need good, reliable, name brands, the ones from most drug stores like Centrum are basically useless and do not have much of the so-called product in them, they are mainly fillers. I take mine from companies such as "Solar ray" "Thorne" "Blue Bonnet" Eclectic Institute" "Standard Processing Labs" etc.
Avatar m tn Eating too many of the nuts over a long period of time may cause an overdose of selenium. Early signs of selinium overdose include a garlicy smell on the breath, poor apetite, white spots on the skin or nails and sour taste in the mouth. If left untreated, further symptoms will occur, including hair loss, tooth decay, brittle nails, loss of feeling in the hands and feet, and discoloration of the skin. If you notice these symptoms, limit your intake of Brazil nuts.
Avatar f tn Is there a particular reason you want to stop taking them? If so, you will need to be sure you are getting enough proper nutrition from your food in their place. The reason most people take a vitamin is because they aren't sure their nutrition is OK without them. But you can get what you need from food if you pay attention to what's in the food and to what you need. You could write down your standard breakfast, lunch and dinner and then look up the nutritional value of those foods.
Avatar f tn I had hair loss at the extreme level but i got rid of it by having the hair loss supplements. These supplements really worked. They improved my hair growth, nails and skin. I tried Omega-3 and DHA 250. Hair loss may be because of stress and anxiety also. See a doctor or try these supplements.
Avatar f tn I only got the supplements that I thought would help me. They're all vitamins, multi, b complex, vitamin c, calcium and magnesia (for night time) and the Sam-E's. I did get a small bottle of melatonin that I used the entire first 10 days but I no longer take them. Just the others I listed above. I'm feeling pretty good I must admit. I'm actually going out 3-4 days a week and jogging again. That makes me feel great! Good luck to you & to all of us in this battle.
Avatar f tn ANyone take any special supplements such as vitamins or mineral or other supplements to relieve the CFS symptoms. I currently take amino acid herbs and vitamin d3.
Avatar f tn re very concerned you can switch to taking your multi vitamins at night so that the vitamins in the cereal will have already been absorbed or passed through your system by then.
668044 tn?1225913014 I did understand the need od the vitamin d but i am afraid to overdose my baby with all these vitamins ( vitamin a, 100%, etc) Is it dangerous to add all these vitamins to my baby diet or not?
Avatar f tn but after reading the label one bottle has dha, epa and omega 3 fatty acids, while the other bottle has all the other stuff like vitamins c, d e, folic acid, iron, copper etc. does this mean take both pills each day? have you seen this before? can you overdose?
Avatar n tn No don't double up...u can overdose...I kno it sounds dumb but too much is no good for baby n u...
Avatar f tn Not so!! Some vitamins actually stay in your body. Vitamins are broken up into two categories: fat soluble, such as A, D, E or K, and water soluble, including all of the B vitamins and vitamin C. Fat-soluble vitamins stay in your body, whereas water-soluble vitamins are absorbed immediately, with any excess being excreted in urine.
