INFORMED CONSENT FOR NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS
Your provider may recommend vitamins and supplements as part of your treatment plan. You are under no obligation to purchase these supplements. The Food and Drug Administration does not regulate, test, or approve these supplements like they would with a prescription medication. Insurances do not cover supplements. Supplements are not studied like medications and they are not part of customary and current medical treatments or prescriptions. Limited studies exist concerning their efficacy. Supplements are not indicated to cure or treat any specific medical disorder. Supplements are not considered a substitute for medications or current medical therapies. Please share the list of your supplements with all your care providers, doctors and prescribers. Supplements can have powerful effects, side effects and interactions. Please discuss the recommended supplements with all providers. Supplements should not be taken in higher than recommended dosages, frequency and only for a limited period of time.
If you decide to purchase a recommended supplement, you are free to decide where to make that purchase. Most supplements are available for purchase through specialized compounding pharmacies and our MyHealth101 online dispensary. The MyHealth101 online dispensary provides a special service to our clients and it was established to make selected high quality supplements more accessible and easily available to our clients. These are supplements that we have chosen to offer based on our research into their quality and because they have undergone third party testing. MyHealth101 P.C is a company specialized in providing resources for Functional and Integrative Psychiatry. It was founded and is owned by Dr. Erich Goetzel. My Health101 may profit from sales of supplements purchased through online stores.
You can opt to purchase supplements on your own if you wish. When deciding where to buy a supplement, we urge you to consider the following:
There have been many instances of counterfeit labels and products as being sold on websites such as Amazon.com, as well as expired products being illegally repackaged and sold as viable product. The quality of the products you use during your treatment is very important, and in an unregulated industry, it is important to find brands that undergo third party testing and can supply the results of these tests. Additionally, there are cautions to be aware of when choosing to purchase supplements from drug or retail stores. In 2015, the New York Attorney General sent cease and desist letters to GNC, Walgreens, Target, and Walmart after conducting an investigation into three of the herbal supplements sold on all of their shelves, and finding no trace of what was listed on the label, as well as many undisclosed ingredients including wheat in supposedly gluten-free products. Beyond just being a waste of money, these supplements provide no clinical benefit, and could also be potentially harmful due to the presence of allergens and ingredients such as house plant added as filler. The same was true of over-the-counter and compounded vitamin D3 in an April 2013 report by JAMA Internal Medicine. They found that potency was “highly variable” and ranged from 9% to 146%. In an unregulated industry, it is incredibly important to do your research when selecting supplements.
Though our practitioners will do their best to familiarize themselves with all of each patient’s allergies, it is ultimately the patient’s responsibility to check all supplement labels prior to opening or ingesting any product.
