What Is Therapeutic M?

Allison Boelcke

Therapeutic M is a type of nutritional supplement that contains a variety of different vitamins and minerals. The exact ingredients and amounts of each vitamin or mineral may vary widely depending on the manufacturer, but tend to include calcium, iron, folic acid, and vitamins A, C, D. The supplement is often recommended for people who are not able to adequately receive vitamins and minerals from food sources due to lack of proper nutrition or conditions that prevent the body from properly absorbing nutrients.

Nutritional deficiencies may lead to a variety of symptoms, such as hair loss, dark under eye circles, easy bruising, weakening of the bones, and fatigue, and may result in serious complications to the body’s organs, muscles, tissues, and other bodily processes. Therapeutic M may be recommended as a treatment option for nutritional deficiencies caused by disorders, such as cystic fibrosis, pancreatitis, celiac disease, and hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, which may affect the absorption of nutrients from food. The supplement may also be recommended for people who do not have access to nutritional food or women who are pregnant and require additional nutrients for healthy fetal development. Certain medications and illnesses may cause nausea or vomiting that may make it difficult for a person to consume enough nutrients from food; therefore, a multivitamin and mineral supplement is often advised to prevent nutritional deficiencies.

Therapeutic M is generally available as a tablet to be taken orally. An extended-release tablet be swallowed whole or if a chewable version is being taken, may be chewed and swallowed. The supplement is usually recommended to be taken once or twice per day for as long as needed.

Certain side effects may potentially occur with the use of therapeutic M and are typically not considered serious. Common mild side effects may include upset stomach, a strange taste in the mouth, headache, diarrhea, or constipation. An allergic reaction may also occur and may be life-threatening if not promptly treated. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to the supplement include swelling of the tongue, face, or lips, red, itchy rash, or trouble swallowing or breathing.

Although therapeutic M is widely considered to be safe, it can cause serious complications if dosage instructions are not followed. If too much is taken, it can cause severe abdominal pain, abnormal menstrual bleeding, blood in urine, coughing up blood, abnormal heartbeat, and convulsions. An overdose of therapeutic m can be potentially fatal, so it is usually advised to seek immediate emergency medical attention if any overdose symptoms are present.
