Why you'll love it
Please note: l‑Carnitine does interact with some medications, so if you are taking any of the medications below, please speak with your health‑care practitioner before taking l‑carnitine:
· Isotretinoin (Accutane) can cause side effects similar to those seen with carnitine deficiency, including muscle pain and weakness, high cholesterol, and liver concerns. Taking l‑carnitine with this medication may improve these side effects.
· Valproic acid (Depakote) – Taking l‑carnitine concurrently with this medication may prevent any deficiency and reduce the side effects of valproic acid.
· Doxorubicin – Concurrent use of l‑carnitine may help protect cardiac cells against the toxicity that can result from doxorubicin.
· Thyroid hormone – l‑Carnitine may reduce the amount of thyroid hormone that is able to get into cells
