    A pharmacist will recognize all of those, but I'd say 3.

    If you are asking a doctor or a pharmacist, they are correct.

    They're also correct if you're asking the question in a health (or health food) shop.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
