Drug Nutrient Depletion

This is an illustrative and non-comprehensive list of some common drugs and the nutrient depletion that can occur from usage.

This should not be used as a sole source of information on drug-nutrient depletion. It is provided as quick reference so that you can pursue more research regarding the prescription drugs that you may be taking. For illustrative purposes, this list includes some commonly prescribed medications. The nutrient depletions between drugs within the same category may vary. For example, Lipitor and Crestor are two types of statin medications, but may deplete nutrients differently in the body. Many drug companies do not perform studies to determine what effect, if any, their medication has on nutrient status.
