Are your medications making you sick?

Is your doctor telling you that your medication is working great, but you just don’t feel “right”?

It may be that your medications are working just fine at treating your condition, but they may also be leading to vitamin deficiencies, a loss of essential nutrients or enzymes deficiencies. This can lead to aches and pains, sleep disturbances and fatigue, and can even affect your immune system. Perhaps what you think is a side effect of your medication is really the result of a nutrient deficiency that can be treated with a simple dietary supplement rather than a more expensive prescription medication.

This is often referred to as “Drug-Induced Nutritional Depletion” (D.I.N.D.) and it can be caused by many prescription medications. Common culprits include cholesterol-lowering meds, birth control pills, ulcer medications, anti-anxiety and anti-depressants, and many others.

The Integrative Pharmacy Consultants at Live & Learn can review your medications and health conditions and research and make specific recommendations regarding what nutrients may be affected and which supplements may help increase your overall health.
