Our Drug-Supplement Interaction Checker (DSIC) ensures that you’re meeting your nutritional needs while avoiding a dangerous interaction between your medications and the supplement.
Prescription medications change your supplement needs.
In some cases, prescription medication will deplete your body of essential nutrients. Prescription medications interfere with your body's ability to absorb nutrients and effects metabolism, storage, transportation, and use of these nutrients by the cells in your body.
Example: Estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) often causes the depletion of nutrients like; Vitamin C, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin B-12, Zinc, Magnesium, and Calcium.
In other cases, prescription medications will require you take lower levels of certain nutrients. Some dosages of supplements that are too high can create a potentially dangerous situation where your prescription meds will not be able to function properly.
