Although many of us try not to take prescription drugs, sometimes avoiding them just isn’t an option. Of course, if you need to take a prescription medication yourself, maximizing the benefits and minimizing the risks should definitely be one of your top priorities.

However, this isn’t always the easiest thing to accomplish, as many popular medications have a range of side effects to deal with. So how can you counter them and help minimize your risks? Supplements may very well help.

Supplements Can Protect Against Side Effects

A regimen that includes nutritional supplements can be a safe and effective way to minimize the side effects of the drugs that you’re taking. But it’s not only about minimizing risk; it’s also about maximizing the benefits from your medications.

You see, by helping prevent side effects, supplements can actually increase compliance — the likelihood of you taking your meds. This is a well-established fact. If you avoid taking a medication because of its side effects, there’s just no way you‘re going to benefit from it. Simple but true.

Medications, Side Effects, and Nutrient Suggestions

The table below provides nutritional suggestions to help counter the side effects associated with nine commonly prescribed drugs. The nutrient(s) listed next to each side effect on the same line are what we suggest for countering its undesirable effects.

Please note: if you are taking any medication, please speak with your doctor before starting any supplement.
