Safe Use of Supplements
Tell all of your health care providers about any dietary supplements you use. Some supplements can interact with medications or affect medical conditions. Read the label instructions for use. “Natural” doesn’t always mean safe. For up-to-date news about the safety of particular supplements, check http://nccam.nih.gov/news/alerts. Too much might be harmful. Don’t take more than the recommended dose.
