I take 10,000 IU of vitamin D3, 1,000 mcg of B-12, 45 mg of slow-release iron, Panax ginseng, 1500 mg of acetyl-L-carnitine, 500 mg of magnesium, 200 mcg vitamin K2, and at bedtime I take 5 mg melatonin for sleep. My overall health and quality of life have improved ten-fold since starting all these supplements. I am no longer depressed, lethargic and fatigued.

I take topiramate for essential tremor. That stops me from absorbing calcium properly. My bone density tests are slowly going down. In spite of the fact that I take Dyno-Mins, Cal/Mag500/250mg with 2000mg Vitamin D3 twice a day with meals. I am also hampered by the fact that I can barely walk (side effects of deep brain stimulation).

I am taking Flavettes. They contain vitamin C and calcium. I take 1,000 mg a day.
