I've been taking an Herbal Formula perscribed by an Chinese Medicine herbalist for years now, she recently tweeked my formula again in response to my western doctor's concern of one ingredient with a Possible contra-indication.
I also take cal-mag and vitamine D (I work nights so I don't get enough sunshine). Recently added fish oil because my good cholesterol dipped at my last labs.

I take garlic, vitamin C, Co Q-10, Multi, and a few others. 20 years ago, my then doctor told me to start taking baby aspirin, and every doctor since has told me to continue...... I also had a doctor tell me about 8 years ago to start taking Vitamin D and he put the dosage up to 5000 IU a day. He told me to double that when I got pneumonia and then go back down to 5000 after that was over. My current doctor lowered the dosage, but told me to continue taking them....

Thanks for sharing. I do not take herbal supplements. Not sure they would do me any good and yes I would check with my doctor first. I would not want anything to affect my medications

Do you take herbal supplements? Would you consider taking them? If so, please see your doctor first for clearance, especially if you are taking prescription meds....
