Health Tip: Taking Dietary Supplements

(HealthDay News) -- Sometimes, dietary supplements can do more harm than good, warns the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Before taking a dietary supplement, the FDA recommends:

  • Be wary of products claiming a "quick fix."
  • Know the side effects, especially if you're having surgery in the near future.
  • Find out if the supplement may interact with your medications.
  • Check with a doctor before using a supplement.

If you believe you are having an adverse reaction to a dietary supplement, visit a doctor and report the issue to the FDA.
