Side Effects, Interactions and Warnings About Vitamins and Supplements

Remember that vitamins, minerals and other supplements aren't regulated in the same way as prescription drugs. If you are going to use vitamins and supplements make sure that you investigate possible benefits as well as potential side effects that can occur.

Pay attention to brand names and the ingredients listed as being contained in any product. Make sure that you follow the instructions on the bottle and don't ingest more than what is suggested. If you believe that a supplement or product is causing adverse effects, it would be wise to cease taking it and contact your doctor or the manufacturer.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, use extreme caution when adding supplements to your diet. Talk with your physician or pharmacist if you have a chronic mental or physical health condition.
