Yes: This is a class c drug so there are some possible effects on the fetus. However, if you are on this drug then not taking it while pregnant can cause more problems for the baby. You should never stop this class of medications without taking to you infectious disease doctor first.

Yes: Having been in this situation, i can tell you that balancing out hormones in men is just as important as doing so for women. Men lose their sex drive, become Insulin resistant, lose their vitality. I'll post a page later that describes my own personal treatment success. I feel great at almost 52 years of age.

Watery eyes: Sounds like you have a viral illness. Take an over-the-counter decongestant and see if this helps. A saline nasal spray is also helpful. Drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. If you are still having problems after 7 days, call your primary doctor.
A 40-year-old member asked:

I had my kidney stone removed by scope and stent removed 6 days after. Is it normal to still feel pain?

Not Usually: Typically, after a stone is removed the the stent is removed, the pain goes away almost immediately. Sometimes, there is still some swelling in the ureter that could be giving continued pain or even possible a small stone fragment. I would check with your doctor with the pain persisting that long.
A member asked:

My 2 yr daughter has hand, foot and mouth disease for last 4 days. The ulcers / blisters in mouth make it difficult for her to drink and eat.. What medication will be most suitable?

Numb the mouth: Anything that will decrease the pain in the mouth will help her drink. Ice cold foods act as a local anesthesia as they numb the area. Try popsicles, ice cream, jello, as well as pedialyte popsicles that will keep her hydrated. Also oragel will help. As it is a viral disease, there is no antibiotics that will help it. It will go away on its own.
