I would like to take...
I would like to take this supplement and to give it to my husband. I take prevastatin lexipro, and loratadine and fluticasone. Is it ok to take Megacal which is this: MegaCal™ is a wonderful source of calcium, magnesium, manganese, and vitamin C. MegaCal supports normal bone and vascular health as well as normal nerve function and contains 207 mg of calcium and 188 mg of magnesium per serving.*. It also has zinc and vitamin C and manganese. It is from Young Living. I also drink Ningxia Red juice and Mindwise and many of the essential oils. My husband is taking BusPiRone, lisinipril, risperdone , spirinolactone, divalproex, doneperzil and trazadone.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.com

This is Dr. John and I will be helping you today.

I will be reviewing your question and will respond shortly.

I may need to ask a few more questions in order to best serve you.

Thank you for your patience.

Answers here are for education and information only.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

I have a few more questions to ask, is that ok?

Ask Your Own Medical Question

do either of you have a history of kidney stones or ever been told that you had high blood calcium levels?

Ask Your Own Medical Question

as long as you or your husband don't have either of those medical issues, then there should be no issue with the supplement. I do recommend to take supplements separate from prescription medications since sometimes the supplements can affect how the stomach absorbed the prescription medications.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
