Vitamins and Supplements- Opinions please!

Sunday, May 26, 2013

Hello, I am currently taking multiple supplements. I need to know if it is healthy to be taking all of these.

Daily Multi-Vitamin
Garlic Capsule
Valerian Root (1-3 at night time)
St. John's Wort (3 times a day) (Natural Mood Stabilizer)
Cayenne Capsules (3 times a day)
Birth Control

Is it okay to be taking all of these each day?
Please give me honest opinions! THANKS!

    Glad to see you here , Sparking. I hope you are doing well. I have been missing you. I hope to see you more often.

    Well, you need to take everything you are taking to the pharmacist and let them check it out. They should be able to help more than anyone. Hugs, Judy

    If you don't have a doctor, then go talk to the pharmacist where you get your birth control. Take the bottles with your supplements with you so that they can check what the actual ingredients are. They'll know the exact prescription of your birth control and will be able to tell you if there are any issues with what you're taking.

    Good luck!

    Please consult either your doctor or your pharmacist to see if there is any problem with this mix. St. John's Wort, valerian, and garlic have all been shown to counteract various other medications, and could be impacting your birth control. Best to check with the experts to be sure!
