See below: The first question is why are you taking oil of oregano? What is your purpose for using it? Despite the hype, there is no persuasive evidence to demonstrate that oil of oregano does anything useful in or on our bodies. And while it is popular, there is no science to support the use of oil of oregano for any medical condition.

Yes: There are no contraindications. How would we treat depressed italians if there were?! (i was raised in cicero, il , with fond memories of terrific italian immigrant hospitality) :).

Yes: Although medications do play a role in managing low back pain, they do carry risks and side effects. There are other non medication treatment options. Regular non impact aerobic exercise (such as swimming, stationary bike), core strengthening, and stretching can be helpful. Being mindful of your posture. Alternative treatment options such as acupuncture may be helpful as well.

What else can I give my 2 year old for a sore throat other then tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen ?

Honey, popsicles: Not much else to do medication wise. Chloraseptic works great, and you can gargle it instead of spray it, but two years olds wont do either approach. Honey plain or in a little decaf tea can help coat and soothe. Popsicles work to cool and soothe as well. Pedialyte popsicles also help keep hydrated, so yuo can try those too.
A 36-year-old member asked:

Can you take naproxen 500mg then take either tylenol (acetaminophen) or aspirin for break through pain. Are this meds ok to take with elevated liver functions?

Dr. Bennett Werner

Yes and no: Aspirin (except for low dose, cardioprotective doses) should not be taken with naproxen. They share similar mechanisms and their toxicities are additive. Tylenol (acetaminophen) (not exceeding 4, 000 mg/24 hours) is okay. The combination if prolonged can affect kidney function. An overdose of tylenol (acetaminophen) causes liver failure. For severe pain, seek medical attn for reversible causes and/or stronger relief.

Dose here or there: Often one not recommended to use antiiflammatoty meds such as advil/aleve etc...In those taking Coumadin (warfarin) or those in the age-of-wisdom because of increased risk of stomache/intestinal bleeding. Also, use may make blood pressure/chf worse. But a dose here or there is likely ok. There are alternatives, so if u are suffering from chronic pain, consult doc. Good luck.

It depends: The dosage and the number of pills taken daily determines how likely that the stomach lining will tolerate the medicalion. Please read the dosage recommedation on the bottle and abide by that.
