Hi there,

I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.

Bisoprolol and Clopidogrel are very useful after a heart attack. I do not like Nitrazepam, because it always causes dependence.

What kind of supplements do you take?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OcuXanthin ..macular degeneration told recently, B12. D3 just boughtBioQ8 and EFA Logic not taken either of these yet. I have tried to come off Nitrazepam far too difficult .

Recently bought Soothe and Heal but not sure if I should take them ?
Expert:  Dr. Gehring replied 1 year ago.

I know, it's difficult!

Everything is safe except D3: You should have yout blood checked for deficiency. If you have none you shouldn't take it, because too much is not good for your health.

Expert:  Dr. Gehring replied 1 year ago.

B12 only makes sense if you have a deficiency.

Heal N Soothe is safe.

But you bought a whole lot... I would not spend too much money on supplements. Healthy diet is quite often enough.
