Likely: I wonder about triamterene, but, could be others. Check with your pharmacist he can look it up on computer to sort through hundreds of side effects that could possibly occur with these meds. Don't stop any till you talk with your doc to arrange for a replacement.

A 29-year-old member asked:

My 5 month old breast fed daughter consistently has liquid bowel movements, she's gaining weight well, are liquid poops distinct from diarrhea?

May not be diarrhea: If a baby is eating, behaving, and growing fine... but has loose poops that can squirt out of her butt, she may be normal, especially if breastfed. Some breastfed babies have loose stools (a bit looser than spaghetti sauce). If she pushes her poop out, it will come out somewhat liquid. If she is very gassy, has smelly poop, or is not growing well, a doctor should evaluate for digestive problems.

Very common: Heartburn is common during pregnancy because of the rapid rise in Progesterone level causes some increase reflux. Also enlarging uterus can push things up. Stretching on the ligaments around the uterus can cause pain in lower abd/pelvic area. Her breasts also enlarging/preparing to make milk for feeding after birth, so soreness is common. Consult doc if she needs treatments. Congrats and good luck.

Saline & suction: Your baby is too young for cold medications. It is safest to use saline nose drops to help clear the nasal congestion. Suctioning the nose gently with a bulb helps to remove the mucus from the nose will help the breathing. Also running a coolest humidifier can help her breathing. Contact your doctor if you are concerned about any labored breathing or high fever.

A 58-year-old female asked:

Hormone replacement therapy. Estrogen alone increases risk of uterine cancer. Adding progesterone increases risk of breast cancer, but reduces risk of uterine cancer. What's the right balance?

Dr. Michael Traub

Individual: Yes, estrogen alone does increase the risk of uterine cancer over time. And yes the whi showed that the combination of a certain synthetic estrogen and a certain synthetic progestin increased the risk of breast cancer. But most specialists do not use those older types of synthetic hormones and with newer medications the risks are lower and different. So a balance can be achieved.
