I found that choosing a good vitamin is complex. I have been taking One A Day "Men's Health Formula" once a day, that Men's Health magazine stated was a good vitamin for men. It contains: Amount per Serving % Daily Value Vitamin A (14% as beta-carotene) 3500 IU 70% Vitamin C 90 mg 150% Vitamin D 400 IU 100% Vitamin E 45 IU 150% Vitamin K 20 mcg 25% Thiamin (B1) 1.2 mg 80% Riboflavin (B2) 1.7 mg 100% Niacin 16 mg 80% Vitamin B6 3 mg 150% Folic Acid 400 mcg 100% Vitamin B12 18 mcg 300% Biotin 30 mcg 10% Pantothenic Acid 5 mg 50% Calcium (elemental) 210 mg 21% Magnesium 120 mg 30% Zinc 15 mg 100% Selenium 105 mcg 150% Copper 2 mg 100% Manganese 2 mg 100% Chromium 120 mcg 100% Potassium 100 mg 3% Lycopene 600 mcg * * Daily Value not established.

Is this a good vitamin to take? Is there anything that I should supplement or use in conjuntion with this?

My medz will be Truvada/Norvir/Prezista. I am starting due to T-cells at 233 and Viral load at 18,860.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

The multivitamin that you've listed seems fine. Just remember that vitamins and supplements are not replacements for a well balanced diet, exercise and the absence of tobacco.


What should i eat if i have a high count of SGOT and SGPT?
