No: Cranberry juice acidifys the urine which makes it harder for some bacteria to grow. There are also substances in cranberries thought to make it difficult for bacteria to get established.

What is the best eye drop to relieve tired eyes that I can use daily?

Dr. Robert Chang

Artificial tears: The safest eye drop that you can use daily is lubricating artificial tears, which will help dry eyes. If preserved tears though, shouldn't use more than 4 times a day. Visine or any with a vasoconstrictor should avoid daily use due to risk of rebound redness on cessation. Best is to figure out why the eyes are tired. Refractive error? Not enough breaks?

Is it okay to give albuterol thru nebulizer to my youngest child (5yrs) who has been coughing daily?

Dr. Josephine Ruiz-healy
Pediatrics 39 years experience
As prescribed by Dr.: A cardinal symptom of asthma in kids is coughing. Some children with asthma do not "wheeze" and they mainly cough with activities, or if they laugh to hard, or they run up stairs, sometimes your symptoms are worse at night. Asthma is a combinatiion of chronic inflammation and acute spasm of the airway. The albuterol helps the airway open up. The nebulizer is a great way to deliver the albuterol.
