THIAMINE (VITB1)

Information for patients
Drug Information Thiamine (vitamin B1) is used to prevent or treat low levels of vitamin B1 in people who do not get enough of the vitamin from their diets. Most people who eat a normal diet do not need extra vitamin B1. However, some conditions (such as alcoholism, cirrhosis, stomach/intestinal problems) can cause low levels of vitamin B1. Vitamin B1 plays an important role in the body. It is needed to maintain the health of the nerves and the heart. Low levels of vitamin B1 may cause heart failure and mental/nerve problems.

NICOTINAMIDE

Information for patients
Drug Information Niacinamide (nicotinamide) is a form of vitamin B3 (niacin) and is used to prevent and treat niacin deficiency (pellagra). Niacin deficiency can cause diarrhea, confusion (dementia), tongue redness/swelling, and peeling red skin. Niacinamide is often used instead of niacin because it causes fewer side effects (e.g., flushing). Unlike niacin, niacinamide does not help correct blood fat levels and cannot be substituted for niacin if you are being treated for a blood fat problem (e.g., high cholesterol). Niacin deficiency may happen as a result of poor diet, certain medical conditions (e.g., alcohol abuse, malabsorption syndrome, Hartnup disease), or long-term use of certain medications (e.g., isoniazid). It is best to get your vitamins from healthy foods. A multivitamin may be recommended by your doctor instead of niacinamide because poor diet usually causes deficiencies in more than one vitamin. Vitamins help to support the body's ability to make and break down natural substances (metabolism) and are needed for good health.
Drug Alert

Before Consuming the Medicine
Avoid Drug Before taking niacinamide, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies.

Drug Dose Take this product by mouth as directed, usually once or twice daily. Follow all directions on the product package, or use as directed by your doctor. If you are uncertain about any of the information, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Do not crush or chew extended-release tablets. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Also, do not split the tablets unless they have a score line and your doctor or pharmacist tells you to do so. Swallow the whole or split tablet without crushing or chewing. If you take certain drugs to lower blood fats (bile acid-binding resins such as cholestyramine or colestipol), take niacinamide at least 4 to 6 hours before or after taking these medications. These products may bind with niacinamide, preventing its full absorption. If your condition persists or worsens, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem, seek immediate medical attention.
Excess Drug Consumption If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately. US residents can call the US national poison hotline at 1-800-222-1222. Canadian residents should call their local poison control center directly. NOTES: Laboratory tests (e.g., blood sugar, liver function tests) may be performed to monitor for possible side effects. Keep all regular medical and laboratory appointments. Remember that it is best to get your vitamins and minerals from healthy foods. Maintain a well-balanced diet, and follow any dietary guidelines as directed by your doctor. B vitamins (including niacin) are found in meat, fish, poultry, enriched/whole grain bread products, and fortified cereals. Eat more of these foods to increase the amount of niacin in your diet if you have a niacin deficiency.
Forgot Drug Consumption If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Stop Drug Consumption Do not stop the drug untill your doctor says you to do so.
Possible Side Effects
General Information no data available
Common Drug Side Effects Niacinamide is generally well tolerated in usual doses. Upset stomach, nausea, and diarrhea may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly. If your doctor has directed you to use this medication, remember that he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. Tell your doctor immediately if any of these rare but very serious side effects occur: black/tarry stools, easy bruising/bleeding, persistent nausea/vomiting, swelling of arms/legs, change in the amount of urine, dark urine, vomit that looks like coffee grounds, yellowing eyes/skin.

EICOSAPENTAENOIC ACID

Information for patients
Drug Information Possibly Effective for: Treating depression, when used with conventional antidepressants. For healing wounds after surgery and shortening recovery time, when used with RNA and L-arginine. Psoriasis. Treating borderline personality disorder, a mood disorder. EPA seems to lower aggressiveness and to relieve depression somewhat in women with this disorder. Reducing the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death in people with coronary artery disease (clogged heart arteries). The reduction of the risk of death is small unless high cholesterol is present in addition to coronary artery disease. In that case, taking EPA can reduce the risk of having a heart attack or other major event by up to 19%. However, taking EPA doesn’t seem to reduce the risk of sudden cardiac death, which is due to an electrical malfunction in the heart. Symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes. Possibly Ineffective for: Treatment of type 2 diabetes. Treating symptoms of cystic fibrosis. Pregnancy-related high blood pressure (eclampsia). High blood pressure. Treating asthma. Relieving hayfever symptoms including wheezing, cough, and nasal symptoms. Preventing an eye disease called AMD (age-related macular degeneration), when EPA is consumed as part of the diet. Reducing growths in the uterus. Insufficient Evidence for: Prostate cancer. It appears that a higher level of EPA in the blood is linked with a lower risk of getting prostate cancer. Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Some research shows that low blood levels of EPA and other fatty acids are linked with ADHD in children. However, it’s not known yet if taking EPA supplements can treat or prevent ADHD. Schizophrenia. Studies to date show conflicting results about the effectiveness of EPA in treating schizophrenia. Alzheimer’s disease. Research so far suggests that EPA doesn’t help to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Menstrual disorders. Lung diseases. Lupus. Other conditions. More evidence is needed to rate EPA for these uses.

Taking EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) along with medications that also slow clotting might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding. Some medications that slow blood clotting include aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, others), ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), naproxen (Anaprox, Naprosyn, others), dalteparin (Fragmin), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, warfarin (Coumadin), and others.

Drug quanitty EPA is usually administered with DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) as fish oil. A wide range of doses have been used. A typical dose is 5 grams of fish oil containing 169-563 mg of EPA and 72-312 mg of DHA. For depression: 1 gram EPA twice daily. For borderline personality disorder: 1 gram of EPA daily (as ethyl eicosapentaenoic acid) has been used for up to 8 weeks. For symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes: 500 mg ethyl-EPA three times daily has been used for up to 8 weeks. Many fatty acid preparations such as EPA also contain small amounts of vitamin E as an antioxidant to prevent spoilage.

Possible Side Effects
General Information no data available
Common Drug Side Effects EPA is LIKELY SAFE for most people when taken appropriately. It is usually well tolerated. Some people, however, can experience side effects such as nausea; diarrhea; heartburn; skin rash; itching; nosebleed; and joint, back, and muscle pain. Fish oils containing EPA can cause fishy taste, belching, nosebleeds, nausea, and loose stools. Taking EPA with meals can often decrease these side effects. When used in amounts greater than 3 grams per day, EPA is POSSIBLY UNSAFE, and can thin the blood and increase the risk for bleeding. Special Precautions & Warnings: Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about using of EPA during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use. Aspirin-sensitivity: If you are sensitive to aspirin, EPA might affect your breathing. High blood pressure: EPA might lower blood pressure. In people who are already taking medications to lower their blood pressure, adding EPA might make blood pressure drop too low. If you have high blood pressure, discuss using EPA with your healthcare provider, before you start taking it.
