Mothers B12 Pernicious Anemia and COQ10

I was wondering ,i am in the midst of finding out

if its possible to take COQ10 with all my mothers medications,

but something came to mind, if she has a problem in the first place

of absorbing B12 in the stomach i would imagine this would be the

same also with tablet forms of COQ10(is there any alternative to tablets? i am trying to find out if there are interactions with Clopidogrel COQ10 and the other list of medications.

I was also considering taking a COQ10 but i saw Pharma nord has in its 100mg capsels 30mg of Titanium dioxide which is an E number used to whiten paint and processed food also toothpaste can anyone suggest a local supply in the UK without this additive?

Thank-you for any advice.

The mechanism for absorbing B12 is quite specialised so I'm not sure it would affect other substances in tablets - though if the absorption problem is linked to a general absorption that would affect things ... but probably to a lesser extent.

In terms of interactions I'd advice that you either talk to your mother's GP or talk to the pharmacist that dispenses your mother's medications.


hi Gambit62 thank you as always coming to provide your advice on the forum

most appreciated to you for taking the time to advice i will follow it up to

Good health and luck to you


For what it's worth Advice1 I've taken a 100mg COQ10 capsule every day for many years, I've had P.A. for 45 years and I'm still "clivealive" aged 75 - but then that's just me - I can't advise what your Mum should do.

Maybe best as Gambit62 says ask the Pharmacist.
