Complementary Medicine

Vitamins, Birth Control and Cholesterol



Suddenly I`m overwhelmed with how much I`m taking. Is it all ok together:

Vitamin E, Iron, Calcium, Folic Acid, Garlic, Omega 3 AND Loestrin AND Albuterol, Advair AND Claritin, Benadryl, Advil, Excedrin, Tylenol (these last few are only when necessary)?


All are OK together except the calcium blocks the iron so those two need to be taken 4 hours apart.
