Vitamin d2 1.25mg (50000 Unit)

Do you take this supplement at night or with meals? When are you supposed to take it? ## You should take vitamin d with some sort of fat- any meal is fine. But you should be aware that taking D2 is NOT the recommended form of Vitamin D. Please take a look at the page on Vitamin D3 to see why that is preferred. You may also be interested in taking a look at this page on Magnesium and Vitamin D to see why it's not the best idea to 'just' take large doses of Vitamin D without taking magnesium to prevent some of the adverse effects that can occur with large doses of Vitamin D. ## suspect Vit D2 overdose with 50,000 units prescribed ## I was very tired so my dr. took blood work and found out I was low on Vitamin D. He put me on 51,000 units and after a few weeks, a person who nev...

Comfortine Ointment

I am trying to find out where I can buy Comfortine Ointment. It is a Pink thick cream sold in a jar or tube. It use to use it for diaper rashes or sores and it was very good. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it. ## Do you remember when was the last time you came across this product? Have not had any luck finding it either. It's too bad when good products are discontinued or suddenly disappear. From what I have gathered this ointment contains Zinc Oxide + Vitamin A + Vitamin D (from Cod Liver Oil) as the effective ingredients. There are other topical Zinc based ointments out there, but none with that exact formulation. Another possibility would be to see if a pharmacist could create a custom compound based on those ingredients. Has anybody else had any luck finding this or a...

tretinoin cream 0.1%

anti-wrinle cream ## is tretinnnnoin effective on scars and wrinkles? can it be applied on a open blemish? is this a good product? ## I've been prescribed tretinoin cream to dry out some skin pores that have gone crazy. IS it a wrinkle cream too? I can't find any info on it. ## Tretinoin is a derivative of vitamin A, it is most commonly used to treat acne, and other topical skin conditions, and a form of leukemia when taken orally. It should not be applied to open blemishes, as it may cause further irritation, redness, and dryness as side effects, and while it has been known to help with wrinkles, it is not usually prescribed for that purpose. Has it been prescribed for you? Alicia, sorry to read of the problem you're having. What other remedies have you tried?

My white blood cell count is falling.

what can conzace cap H3O do to my health

I'm 40 y/o now. My Gynecologist prescribed me with conzace cap H3O. I had my surgery for endemetriosis and mioma last June 3, 2008. What are the good and bad side effects of Conzace cap H3O? ## I was unable to find any information regarding Conzace, since it is not manufactured in the US. They are made in the Philippines, and are vitamins used a dietary supplements, and not drugs. Since these are vitamins, it is hard to determine the side effects. Everyone reacts differently to vitamins, I personally had a bad experience with to much B12. Your medication contains vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and Zinc Sulfate. Please post back if you have any more information to add so I can further assist you. ## Can this vitamin make menstruation irregular?
