A 20-year-old female asked:
can a person take 3 protonix (pantoprazole) pills and a zactac 150 pill around the same time?

Wouldn't want to: protonix (pantoprazole) works by permanently inactivating the acid secretion by the stomach and this has to grow back before the pills action stops. More protonix (pantoprazole) cannot do more effect at one time. With acid secretion broken by protonix (pantoprazole) unlikely zantac could do anything.

Should I worry that my baby is not always at the same percentile on the growth chart?

No: Babies often switch curves on a growth chart, depending on their activity levels, the time of day the measurement is taken, and the genetic potential for growth they are given by her parents. As long as your baby continues to grow, the growth curves are just guides.

A 35-year-old member asked:
Are epidurals and spinals the same thing?
4 doctor answers • 9 doctors weighed in

No: While they may feel the same to you, they are a little different. An epidural puts continuous medication in a sac around the spinal cord, providing longer, lower level numbness. Spinals put the medication in the fluid directly around the spinal cord just once. Epidurals numb a little less but longer, spinals numb a lot but only last a shorter period of time.

A 41-year-old member asked:
Can someone get a burner and concussion at the same time from basketball?
1 doctor answer • 2 doctors weighed in
Pediatric Neurology 48 years experience
Yes: Sudden stinging down arms or legs is often called a burner. Trauma to nerves in neck or shoulder can do this. Trauma to the head with confusion, nausea, and alteration in consciousness can be considered a concussion. Both types of symptoms may occur during a major trauma event.
