What makes the book "Arzneimittel und Mikronährstoffe – medikationsorientierte Supplementierung" special?

Optimise therapy, reduce side effects!

Medication-related disturbances of the micronutrient balance often lead to undesirable drug effects. For example, long-term therapy with corticoids increases the risk of corticoid-induced osteoporosis. Thiazide or loop diuretics lead to renal magnesium and potassium losses, which increase the risk of triglyceridaemia and insulin resistance, for example.

Metformin impairs the availability of vitamin B12 and promotes neurological disorders.

As a doctor or pharmacist, make the interactions between medicines and micronutrients your topic, and let your patients benefit from them.

Arzneimittel und Mikronährstoffe – medikationsorientierte Supplementierung


Whether antibiotics, antihypertensives, oral antidiabetics, statin-type cholesterol-lowering drugs, diuretics, oral contraceptives, osteoporosis drugs, proton pump inhibitors or cytostatics: When taken regularly, numerous medicines can trigger a deficiency and/or an increased need for vitamins and other vital micronutrients.

Micronutrient deficiencies triggered by drugs are often the unrecognised cause of drug-related side effects. The consideration of interactions between drugs and micronutrients with resulting dose adjustment and medication-oriented supplementation is a quality criterion for good drug prescription practice.

Sensible drug supplementation with drug supplements can not only reduce the risk of adverse drug reactions and improve the quality of life of treated patients, but also expand the pharmacological, immunological and metabolic efficacy profile of a drug. In addition, micronutrient supplementation aligned with medication offers considerable savings potential to reduce the annually rising cost of medicines.
