Vitamins and supplements

There is no substitute for proper medical care and supervision. Healthcare professionals sometimes prescribe vitamins and supplements as part of a care plan. There can be a lack of understanding as to what this will achieve, what is the correct dose and , as with any tablet, lack of knowledge about what the side effects are. There also might be a bit of a delay in being able to speak with your health practitioner too.  I am a great believer in knowing side effects. I have found the webMD site useful because it provides very good information which then helps you to have better discussions with your doctor or medical care provider. It looks at all the issues and it looks at how medications can interact so it is a very helpful place to go if you are getting yourself a bit confused and need to have a proper conversation with your medical health care person.
