Dr. Megan’s Dispensary

Many people ask which supplements I recommend as a specialized clinical pharmacist.

I only recommend dietary supplements from high-quality manufacturers made with pharmaceutical-grade ingredients.

Purchase products through our Fullscript virtual dispensary.

People on prednisone suffer from many symptoms. Here are a few supplements I find beneficial:

  1. Calcium + vitamin D to prevent osteoporosis.
  2. Melatonin for restful sleep and a calm mood.
  3. Chromium picolinate for hunger cravings and to prevent weight gain.
  4. Cinnamon and berberine for blood sugar regulation.
  5. Prednisone causes the body to lose other nutrients which need to be replenished, such as magnesium, potassium, zinc, folic acid, vitamin A, and vitamin C.

You may notice that all of these ingredients are in Nutranize® Zone, the dietary supplement I created for people on prednisone. I intentionally included all the nutrients prednisone steals, plus more to help combat the miserable effects of prednisone. I wanted a product that was the ONLY supplement I needed while on prednisone. If you’d prefer to buy the ingredients individually instead of all-in-one, click here for my Nutranize Protocol.
