Dr. Okun,

Will a vitamin containing Iron interfere with PD med absorption? My mom seems to be getting leg weakness the past few days after a week of taking the multivitamin containing iron.
If so please tell me why that happens?

Usually not. The first and most important thing you and your doc should discuss when you see leg weakness is the possibility of stroke.
