Brief Answer:
Yes its safe to take vitamins.

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM

The repetitive thoughts could be due to obsessive thoughts but if you have OCD or not that should be evaluated.

Dominating, intrusive, repetitive thoughts that are purposeless and persist in mind and cause significant stress are due to obsessive thoughts.

You are on right medicines for bipolar disorder and no need to worry. Yes its safe to take vitamins, inositol and L theanine with these medicines

Take vitamin B12, folate, D and E supplements which will result in maximal benefits. L-theanine will help in reducing the anxiety too.

Thanks and Take care

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.
