Is Btrex a complex of B1, B6, and B12 vitamins? My doctor has prescribed me this vitamin, and I consider that a 30 day supply is expensive when comparing prices with a B-Complex bottle. Your advise is appreciated. ## I was unable to locate sufficient information on this supplement, possibly due to the spelling or if it's only manufactured overseas. Do you know if the spelling is correct? Also, does this supplement have a label on the back with all the ingredients? I only ask because I can tell you based on the ingredients and price if this is really worth what you are paying and whether or not you can find something with a better nutrition profile for a cheaper or equal cost. If this is in fact a B Vitamin Complex and only that, then there are certainly many other brand alternatives...

I had nerve pain in my forehead (on the right side above my eyes), diagnosed as fibromyalgia or a mild form of trigeminal neuralgia. I have been taking Pregabalin OD 100 mg twice daily for more than 18 months and Tegretol CR 200 - 1/2 tablet three times a day for 12 months. I also take a vitamin supplement daily. No other medications. My age is 71, male. I have not observed any side effects except for increased appetite and some memory loss, which may not be related to these medications but just age-related. Can I continue these medications for so long without causing kidney, liver, or heart damage? ## I have PTSD, extremely bad anxiety and my back has been broke twice.

I need help finding a similar alternative to Daflon that's available in Australia... I tried many brands and nutrition doesn't work. Please reply. Thanks. ## can I get Deflon in Australia/any alternative medication for deflon ## Hello Miro, I'm sorry to hear that you are struggling to find medication or a diet that helps you with your situation. Daflon is most commonly paired with it's use to treat hemorrhoids, and going off that assumption I have to say that there are too many different brands of hemorrhoid medication to list here. In addition to that it would not be safe for either of us for me to recommend you any medications as I do not have access to your medical history. I know that you mentioned that nutrition doesn't work for you but in the mean time here is ...

I took five iron infusion to try to build up my blood count, but in the process my hair came out all over my head. My doctor said he looked up side effects and didn't see that one. Told him I would bring him a copy that it is so. Help. I know it comes back but does it need help? ## It actually isn't a listed side effect of supplementing your iron, it is usually caused by your being low in iron, so it was more than likely caused by the deficiency that required you to undergo the infusions. Rectifying the problem, since you've had the infusions, should help it to correct itself. There are some medications and supplements that may help, but they also carry the risk of side effects, so you may be better off to just let it grow back on its own. Are there any other questions? ## I...

Please don't mention the doctors. I need to get my period back. Doctors don't really do much but make matters worst ## Hello, Kristy! How are you? It may be due to the vitamin D in this, since it is actually a type of hormone, not an actual vitamin, so it can affect the other hormones in your body. It might just be affecting you too much.
