Unclear & largely: unknown. There are too many variables. While damage is more likely, they may be also some protective effects. Yet who is going to do and pay for the fantastic complexity involved in doing prospective, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trials on a large enough group of individuals over many, many years to find out?

In how many days will my milk supply come in?
3 doctor answers • 4 doctors weighed in
Pediatrics 23 years experience
1-10 days: Your pre milk or colostrum is probably already in, but your full milk supply can take a few days or more especially for the first time mom. A baby's cry, suckling, and holding your baby are all stimulants to your milk "letdown". Other factors which may help with your milk release is good hydration, good eating habits, drugs and sleep. Supplementation with formula can help in the meantime.

A 27-year-old member asked:
Why is it necessary to get so many ultrasounds in pregnancy/
2 doctor answers • 7 doctors weighed in

It isn't: In an uncomplicated pregnancy, repeated ultrasounds aren't necessary. A 1st trimester sonogram is best for confirming the due date and number of fetuses while fetal anatomy is best assessed in the mid to late 2nd trimester. Additional sonograms may be recommended if complications such as hypertension, diabetes, or pre-eclampsia arise, but for the uncomplicated, low risk patient, 2 should suffice.

I am taking 60 mg phenobarbital daily after my skull tumor operation in 1995. What precautions should I take for my daily routine?

Ask yourself why: Was it a skull tumor or brain tumor? Why was the drug started in the 1st place? For seizure prevention? Have you ever had a seizure? Do you still need it? If you still need a seizure med, why phenobarbital? That's a bad drug for adults: bad for your bones, not great for your liver either. Go see a neurologist and ask him/her to reassess everything.
