Lightbulb another good resource:

This particular database moves around from University to University.

My old link to one closed, but this one just opened up:
http://www.umm.edu/altmed/

There are really interesting things on this site!
The depletions section is very complete.

And the Vitamin/mineral depletions by drugs is also useful.

Default Very interesting site

I put the university site in my favorites , but then I emailed them about the incorrect B12 and pernicious anemia information. Groan. Please all, do not rely on their B12 information.

Thanks, as always, mrsdoubtfyre. What would we do without you. My aunt just benefitted greatly from a change in magnesium type.

Arrow Medication/Drug Induced Vitamin/Nutrient Interaction/Depletion References

References for medication/drug induced vitamin/nutrient interaction/depletion are included below, information from some of which is referred to by other posts (reference threads) within this forum. In certain instances, you may find a number of different internet sites that utilize information from the same primary database provider (e.g. Healthnotes, Inc.). Only one reference site is included for each of these instances (alleviating redundancy). The internet sites believed to be the most recent/complete are nearest the top. Most references here list information by drug:

Post Coumadin (warfarin) interactions:

I found a blog today with some useful information on it.

Here is the link to supplements and the most common drug interactions for this blood thinner:
http://www.drug-injury.com/druginjur...ons/index.html
Quote:
Starting with the herbs and supplements, Dr. Paauw had an easy-to-remember bit of advice: be particularly careful with herbs and supplements beginning with the letter "G". Garlic, ginger, and gingko biloba, all increase the anticoagulation of Coumadin (warfarin). Meanwhile, ginseng decreases the anticoagulation of Coumadin (warfarin).
Drugs commonly involved, but by no means ALL of them:
Quote:
During his presentation, Dr. Paauw listed several other prescription drugs that are likely to interact with Coumadin, including these:

* erythromycin,
* amiodarone,
* Diflucan (fluconazole),
* Nizoral (keotoconazole),
* Sporanox (itraconazole), and
* mentronidazole.

Dr. Paauw also mentioned that the use of Prilosec (omeprazole) or Tylenol (acetaminophen) while using Coumadin at the same time can affect a patient's INR.
Basically almost EVERYTHING can affect warfarin levels..the list is very long.
But the ones listed here are the most commonly found.
Left off the list was Cipro... and I am concerned about that.

Here is a more complete listing:
http://www.aafp.org/afp/20000315/1745.html

Default Nutritional Test Laboratories

The following laboratories specialize in the testing of vitamin/nutrient deficiencies and metabolic dysfunction. These labs have a somewhat different approach as compared to traditional laboratories and target the body’s biochemical/metabolic functions:

Metametrix Clinical Laboratory http://www.metametrix.com
Genova Diagnostics http://www.gdx.net
SpectraCell Laboratories http://www.spectracell.com

Lightbulb Link to drug/nutrient depletions:

I found a website recently that has the information from the
reference I use on their website. It is not 100% complete like the book, but very close and very useful:

http://www.chiro.org/nutrition/ABSTR...orticosteroids
