Talk to your physician and pharmacists. They are knowledgeable on all major interactions between pharmaceutical drugs and food specific nutrients, and herbs. For example, inhibition of vitamin K may be caused by antibiotics or iron deficiency, and may be triggered by long-term use of aspirin. This is the “kind-of-stuff” that the professional needs to know. Side effects are also discussed; consider what would happen you decided to take higher doses of vitamin E, garlic, and gingko, while taking heavy doses of warfarin (trade name --Coumadin—legally known as “Rat Poison”). You could be potentially dead within 24 hours.
Discuss with our registered pharmacist the potential issues in combination of over the counter drugs, herbs and vitamins that could be a potential health problem for you. Working with our registered pharmacists you can discuss what combination of drugs with vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other nutritional supplements heading off dangerous combinations.
