      It might be so tempting to reach for an energy drink on those PH days when your energy level is at it’s lowest, but talk to your doctor first! He/She will probably confirm what this consensus statement states. The same is true for certain Vitamins/Dietary Supplements. PHA shared the following consensus statement and article and I thought you might find it helpful in addition to the conversation you have with your doctor.

      Great topic, Colleen!
      Thanks for the articles, it can be easy to think about just grabbing all of these energy drinks, pills, etc, for a little more “ pep” , but it’s not a good combination with PH in general as well as mixing with PH meds.

      Today, these supplements are available all around us and are being marketing with confusing labels .

      I am sure that I ask my PH Doc before I take anything , even with OTC meds. I’ve beeb dealing with this 14+years but still do this . If another doctor adds a medication or suggests a supplement, I run it by my PH Doctor first. I keep in contact often with my PH Nurse via email or phone, she knows more about me than she probably would like, lol .
