So Don't ya think?


Recommended Posts

So WHY should I talk to my doctor before taking "that shit" at the bottom of my page? Or is it just me?

They appear to be supplements, and it would be helpful to know why, or where to find out why.

Just curious. I think that withholding what appears to be "opinion" isn't right. Flat out taking someone here's word for it, is just as bad as taking them.

Am I wrong here?

I'm not understanding your question. Before taking what?

Sometimes supplements can interact with your meds, but not knowing what you're referring to makes it difficult at best to reply to this question. Sorry.

More information would be helpful.

Supplements, vitamins and herbs can have various effects. Some can interact with your meds.

It's also generally suggested one talks to their doctor before starting a new exercise program or diet. It's stuff that changes how you function.

5-HTP, for example, if you are bipolar, can make you manic. or, it has done so to a few people. so, if you're bipolar, it's best to ask your doctor about it.

some people are on meds other than psych meds, or on combos of anticonvulsants, that just haven't been studied with supplements and a doctor may say "i don't know enough to feel comfortable with you on heart meds, ACs and all of these supplements" (which one doctor said to a friend of mine, so she went off of everything but her multi until her doctor could research each of her supplements.) personally i am still weary of kava kava. my husband, as per our dr.'s instructions, takes a multi without iron. the one at the bottom of the page has iron. i take one with iron, plus additional iron.

i am actually rx'd every vitamin/amino/herb i take. i do think it matters. my doctor thinks taking l-tyrosine when you're on a stimulant is helpful in preventing stimulant burn out, other doctors do not agree with this at all on any level.

Hi,

from a risk & liability perspective I think it is wise to include the statement "talk to your doc before..." above the ads for alternative medications.

there really is a fine fine fine line in the USA regarding liabilities & risk. and for a website such as CB its good to have the warning. why? because some people are stupid and likely to buy all those supplements under the idea "well, it was advertised on CB...and now look...im fucked up."

yes, people are that litigious. assessing risk & liabilities was my occupation for 7 years. people will sue for any reason. and this is why personal injury lawyers make a lot of money.

It's an ass covering thing.

If you're bp, l-tyrosine can be mania in a bottle and two of the products listed contain it. There is a risk of serotonin syndrome which is potentially fatal when 5-htp is combined with SSR-Is. Improperly prepared kava kava, and maybe all kava kava, can fry your liver. IMHO 80% of supliments are snake oil. The other 20% can really fuck you up. I've gone through the thousands of supplements available on amazon and tried to pick out some that are high quality and good deals. I am not recommending them to any particular person for any particular use. That banner is there is to say that if you take any of them and turn into a barn owl, it's not my fault so please don't sue.

The price on the fish oil is for 3 bottles and and it's pharmaceutical grade btw.

now is that any way to encourage advertisers???

we've never been too great at PR around here.

those links are part of the amazon partners program. we recommend a product, you buy it through a link, we get a small % of the profit. not straight advertising.

but yes, potty mouths are never helpful. as i think you've been helping me with chuckit, actually.

VE, I hope you know I just blew coffee through my nose on that one!

Though I don't hold you responsible, since I already know better than to drink ANYTHING while reading your posts....

....ouchies....

oh

now I'll look HERE before ordering any vitamins or supplements

and a quick comment on...

kava kava made me a nervous wreck I felt like I'd ODd on stimulants or something not a fun feeling at all

never tried l-tyrosine but hey if it puts bp folk into mania does that mean it could be a test FOR bp?

nah prob not any more than ADD meds speeding vs calming reactions are a positive rx for ADDers

just wondering if it would help me clean house sometime, or not

so Penny how's the gutter mouth cleaning up?

I remember someone writing they substitute silly words instead of cussing but they feel foolish

well I've been doing that for a while and it doesn't phase me how folks might react when I say poop, pooper scooper, bala bala bingbang, etc

but then I mostly need translators when trying to communicate with most folk anyway

easier just to NOT talk, rather than spend extra time making folk understand me

I'd hate for people to think that I'd gone through that crazy spanking therapy that Ned Flanders went through, only to only to have a "nervous breakdown" some 30 years later.

hee hee hee.

Ding dang diddly....Aw, Fuck it with a barn owl.
