|Vitamins to help w/ many issues

| Response from Dr. Fawcett
You have a complex set of issues that require consultation with your physician. Many supplements are useful but must be taken with caution as they can seriously interfere with your medications. For example, a common herbal remedy for depression is St John's Wort which causes a dangerous interaction with protease inhibitors. Some of your symptoms such as low sexual desire and memory concerns could be related to medications. Adderal and Xanax both are powerful (and addictive) drugs that are pushing and pulling your body in two directions. Speak with your physician about your current meds, your symptoms, and which supplements, if any, he would suggest.
