How to Take Supplements By Suzy Cohen

Check out the entire blog here - http://suzycohen.com/articles/vitamin_supplement_interaction/



Medicines and supplements that are best taken in the MORNING:

Thyroid medication
Modafinil (Provigil)
Stimulants (Ritalin, Concerta, Adderal)
Diuretics like HCTZ, furosemide, dandelion, berberine, neem, green tea
 and others
Osteoporosis drugs (Boniva, Fosamax, etc)
Curcumin can be taken anytime, however, since it raises brain neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, I suggest it as a morning supplement.
Riboflavin supports adrenal, I think it’s ideally taken in the morning or lunch.

Medicines and supplements that are best taken WITH food:

Mineral supplements (iodine, magnesium, calcium, iron)
Vitamin A, D, E or K (fat-soluble vitamins) best with fatty foods
Anti-fungals like ketoconazole, itraconazole, nystatin
CoQ10
Probiotics, it’s just easier than trying to take them on an empty stomach (results are the same)
ThyroScript thyroid formula
Herbal supplements (generally speaking) these should be taken with food.

Medicines and supplements that are best taken at NIGHT: 


Diphenhydramine
Aspirin
Magnesium
Ashwagandha (doesn’t have to be though, some people find that it causes drowsiness)
Goto kola (not a hard-fast rule, I’ve heard reports of this actually causing insomnia)
Skullcap
Muscle relaxers
Statin cholesterol reducers (atorvastatin, lovastatin, pravastatin, etc)
ACE inhibitors (like enalapril, fosinopril, captopril, lisinopril)
ARB class of blood pressure pills (candesartan, etc)
