False Positive : There are a variety of common medications (some over the counter, some prescription) that can give a false positive result for Methamphetamines: Metformin (glucophage), Trazadone, Fluoxetine (prozac), Labetolol (trandate), Psuedoephedrine (sudafed), Buproprion (Wellbutrin), and Quinolone antibiotics (Ciprofloxacin, Levofloxacin) Talk to your Dr about meds you take that could cause this.

A 28-year-old member asked:

Will I be able to breastfeed if I have had a breast reduction?

5 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Benner

No: Most women who have had breast reductions will find it difficult to nurse, and some may find it impossible. There's no harm in trying but it is important to be realistic. The operation relocates the nipple and disrupts the nerves that signal the brain to produce and release breast milk when the baby sucks. Sometimes there is adequate nerve function and with persistence nursing can succeed.

Since I became pregnant, i've had major breakouts. Is there anything I can do to make sure I don't get acne scars?

Benzoyl peroxide: Most of the OTC skin products for acne are safe in pregnancy. Simple soap and water works great, as long as you understand that the high Progesterone levels in the first trimester are the cause for acne -- by the end of the third month, most major flare-ups are over.

Check with your doc: You need to make sure it's not from a urinary tract infection. There are many reasons women may leak urine and the best treatment approach depends on the cause.

If I have had one seizure in the past is it safe to undergo a light hypnosis for anxiety I do take Dilantin which is a untheroputic level?

Get off it: Dilantin should be relegated to history. It is an old drug of high toxicity and major problems with use. Talk to your doctor about getting off or at least changing to a newer and safer seizure medication.
