Neurotil
Its support for your memory power ## Neurotil is a nutritional supplement that is claimed to help with memory and cognitive impairment. It contains Vitamin C, E, B6, B12 and Folic Acid. Since it is just a supplement, however, there is no proof that it will actually help, though a deficiency in some vital nutrients can contribute to such problems. Are there any other questions or comments? ## You can test supplements as well as anything else. There is good evidence for all the ingredients in it. ## I wish to return the Neurotil NG-0043 and Stemtrol NG-0014 I wish to return these and also cancel my order.

side effects of adtrol plus
i just want to know that that the adtrol plus contain drug METH ## I am using Adtrol plus capsules for four months for my knee pain, Now my sugar level has been increased and I want to know as to whether this increase is due to continuous usage of the medicine ## No this is not due to this drug as i have used for than six months ## Just to add some clarification, this supplement does not contain the illegal and very dangerous drug that's commonly referred to as Meth. One of its ingredients is Methylcobalamin, which is actually just a form of vitamin B12. Along with it, it also contains Calcium, Calcitro, Folic Acid and Vitamin B6, all of which are believed to help with joint health and nerve pain. And no, as a supplement, it shouldn't cause elevation of blood sugar. Are there an...

want to fall pregnant but have been using nur isterate as contraceptive.
How long does it take for nur isterate wear off cos i would really like to fall pregnant soon. I have been using the injection since May 2011 to Nov 2011. should i take pills instead so that my cycle can return faster or what? i desperately need advise on this regard cos i want to have a baby. ## Have you consulted your doctor? From the time you stop the injections, you should probably allow a few months for your body to return to normal, before you try to become pregnant. It will greatly help your chances of getting pregnant and of carry a healthy baby to term. ## I've been using nur isterate for 3 years then stoped using it few months ago about for 4 months then went for another injection 2 months back, now i want to fall pregnant but i've been expiriencing some sores in virgi...

Nervex Bt Tablet
doctor prescribe Nervex bt capsules for me. I would like to know for what ailment this is given. ## please let me know this halal. ## The Nervex BT is on of the most common medicine consumed by millions of Muslims. It is marked by a Brown dot. Therefore i would be really thankfull if u can let me know what kind of animal fat used in it or whether is it "hallal" ? (Does it contains any pork fat or anything related to PORK). ## @SIDA, I'm honestly surprised that your doctor gave you a prescription for a medication without telling you what it was used for. Something just doesn't make sense about that. Did you happen to go in and get any blood work done or perhaps a diagnoses indicating that you even needed this supplement? Nervex is simply a prescription-based multivitamin ...
