Generally, Weil supplements can be taken at times and in ways that fit your unique schedule and lifestyle. However, here are a few guidelines that will help to ensure your optimal safety and comfort:
If you miss taking a packet on a given day or at a given time, don’t “double up” the next time - just start back up on the next day or at the next typical time.
Take supplements at least two hours before or after you take pharmaceutical medications.
Stop taking supplements seven to 10 days before a scheduled surgery. Once you are home and eating a normal diet, you may resume taking your supplements.
Weil Vitamin Advisor recommendations take into account potential interactions with pharmaceuticals. However, for safety, always discuss any change in our supplement regimen with your physician or pharmacist.

Most supplements are best taken with food, especially food containing fat, unless stated otherwise in your recommendation.
Store your vitamins in a cool, dry, dark place such as a cupboard. Do not refrigerate them.
A good way to remember to take your supplements is to tear off your daily packets each day and place them on the kitchen counter. This way you will see them and be near something to drink. If you take a noon packet, keep the box at work with you. Our convenient custom-pack supplements easy to take with you when traveling - just snip off the amount corresponding to the number of days you’ll be gone.
Stomach discomfort is the most common side effect of taking supplements. To address this, be sure you are consuming a meal with each dose. Sometimes it is simply the amount of food consumed that makes the difference. You may also need to remove certain pills one at a time and see if your symptoms change. There are typically only one or two pills that contribute to reactions like this. If the above suggestions do not help, consult a physician or contact us to set up a nutritionist appointment. If you need to interrupt your regimen, call us at 800-585-5055 and we will suspend your program until you are ready to receive your next Weil supplement shipment.
Keep in mind that our supplements are meant to help enhance your nutritional status and well-being, but they can’t do the job alone. They are intended to be used in conjunction with a well-balanced diet and regular physical activity in order to obtain maximum benefits.
