Drug-Induced Nutrient Depletions

You can use this database to look up nutrient depletions from a variety of common pharmaceuticals.   

NOTE: YOU MUST SEARCH BY THE GENERIC NAME IN ORDER FOR THE SEARCH TO WORK. 

If you don't know the generic name, you can visit Drugs.com and search by the trade name.  It will then pull up the generic name, which will appear next to the trade name in parenthesis.   

Alternatively, you can search by category, such as "Beta Blocker" or by nutrient, i.e. "CoQ10."

If you do consider using supplements to remediate some of these depletions, please work with a nutritionally informed medical practitioner who can guide you through the process, and do your best to purchase the correct molecular variant of each nutrient, taking care not to counteract the positive effects of your medications.
