For sample adults in 2007 who had received prescription medication (VIT1TPMED) for the condition they used a first vitamin supplement for the most (VIT1TCONMOST), VIT1TPMEDTIM indicates whether they received such prescription medication before, at about the same time, or after they began using the first vitamin supplement.

To collect this information, interviewers asked, "Did you receive any of these conventional medical treatments for [condition for which first vitamin supplement was used the most]?" and entered all treatments reported by the respondent. For each treatment reported, interviewers asked whether such treatment was received before, at about the same time, or after beginning to take the first vitamin supplement.
