Recommendation: 200 mg of chromium in a tablet supplies 167 percent of the daily value for chromium. Since this is a dietary supplement, the Food and Drug Administration has not conducted its own tests for safety and effectiveness.

Medicinal interactions:

Certain medications may interact with chromium, especially when taken on a regular basis.

Antacids/ Corticosteroids/ H2 blockers/ Proton-pump inhibitors-

These medications alter stomach acidity and may impair chromium absorption or enhance excretion.

Beta-blockers/ Insulin/ Nicotinic acid/ Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS)/ Prostaglandin inhibitors-

These medications may have their effects enhanced if taken together with chromium or they may increase chromium absorption.        

Safety and Precautions:

Chromium is likely safe for most adults when taken by mouth in doses up to 1000 mcg daily for up to 6 months. Chromium is possibly safe for most adults when used for longer periods of time. Some people experience side effects such as skin irritation, headaches, dizziness, nausea, mood changes and impaired thinking, judgment, and coordination. High doses have been linked to more serious side effects including blood disorders, liver or kidney damage, and other problems. It is not known for sure if chromium is the actual cause of these side effects. 

In children, chromium is likely safe when taken by mouth in amounts that do not exceed the “adequate intake” (AI) levels. Taking chromium by mouth is possibly safe when used in amounts that exceed the AI levels.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and Breast-Feeding-

Chromium is likely safe to use during pregnancy and breast-feeding when taken by mouth in amounts that are equal to or less than “adequate intake” (AI) levels. Chromium is possibly safe to use during pregnancy in amounts higher than the AI levels. However, pregnant women should not take chromium supplements during pregnancy or breast-feeding unless advised to do so by their healthcare provider.

Kidney Disease-

There are at least three reports of kidney damage in patients who took chromium. Don’t take chromium supplements, if you already have kidney disease.

Liver Disease-

There are at least three reports of liver damage in patients who took chromium. Don’t take chromium supplements, if you already have liver disease.

Diabetes-

Chromium might lower blood sugar levels too much if taken along with diabetes medications. If you have diabetes, use chromium products cautiously and monitor blood glucose levels closely. Dose adjustments to diabetes medications might be necessary.

Chromate/Leather Contact Allergy-

Chromium supplements can cause allergic reactions in people with chromate or leather contact allergy. Symptoms include redness, swelling, and scaling of the skin.

Behavioral or Psychiatric Conditions such as Depression, Anxiety, or Schizophrenia-

Chromium might affect brain chemistry and might make behavioral or psychiatric conditions worse. If you have one of these conditions, be careful when using chromium supplements. Pay attention to any changes in how you feel.
