Check w/ Doctor 1st!: People should never just stop taking a Rx without telling their doctor. They may say fine, but they may warn you of serious withdrawal effects and guide you to a safe landing. With only one dose behind you - it should be okay - but as a general rule - advise the doctor. You might be offered an alternative that will be better. Best wishes.

A 44-year-old member asked:

Are aspirin, acetaminophen and ibuprofen equally good at preventing heart attacks?

Dr. Luke Hermann
Emergency Medicine 25 years experience
No: Heart attacks are typically a result of platelets sticking together and blocking an artery in the heart. Aspirin blocks the platelets ability to stick together decreasing the chance that a blockage (heart attack) will occur. For this reason, Aspirin is one of the most effective medicines ever discovered for the prevention of heart attacks. Neither tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen has this effect.

Notify Pediatrician: May try nasal saline solution to clean the nasal passages and make him/ her breath humidified air. Avoid aspirin. Notify the pediatrician office so he/ she be examined. If bleeding is too much take him to the emergency room.

It would likely help: A psychiatric evaluation would likely result in targeting the depression which if treated effectively can alleviate some or all of the other symptoms. Other things such as psychotherapy, nutrition, lifestyle changes, and assessing possible addiction issues are important as well.

A 24-year-old member asked:

I have been getting tingling in my foot for about 2 days now and now really bad pains in my right arm and neck.. Am I having a mild heart attack?

No: Your symptoms do not suggest a heart problem. The arm and neck pain sounds musculoskeletal, perhaps a pinched nerve in the neck. The foot problem could also be irritation of a nerve in teh leg. You would need an examination to pinpoint the problem.

A 20-year-old female asked:

I missed my period for 2 weeks now.Had unprotected sex.Both serum and hpt are negative.I had heavy bleeding last month.What could be wrong?

Probably nothing: I would, however, repeat the pregnancy test in about a week to make sure that a window period hasn't missed. The brain-ovary-uterus axis is quite sensitive to a lot of things (e.g. Stress, weight changes, diet changes, etc...). Any one of these things, including a pregnancy, can alter the normal cycle.
