There are a number of prescription and over-the-counter medications that can deplete your body's natural reserves of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and ubiquinol. It is nearly impossible to replenish this nutrient through diet alone. Today, it's easy to find Kaneka Ubiquinol™ in supplement form. There are many high-quality brands sold in health food stores and pharmacies nationwide. Our Buyer's Guide has valuable information about what to look for when choosing a Kaneka Ubiquinol supplement. Be sure to ask your doctor about possible side effects if a health care provider recommends or prescribes any of the following drugs: (Reprinted with permission from Suzy Cohen's Drug Muggers)

Any combination drug that contains HCTZ or hyrdochlorothiazide (dozens of drugs contain this)
