I am prescribed .50mg Xanax (alprazolam) 3/daily, 75mg Amitriptyline, and 50mg Trazadone. I'm 6'1, 232 male. Is this safe?
OVERLAPPING MEDS: The combo of Meds you are on looks like you are being treated for anxiety and depression . Xanax (alprazolam) is short acting for anxiety . Trazadone and amitriptyline are long acting for anxiety and depression but are very similar and both cause weight gain.. I would taper trazadone and start cymbalta. You need full lab work up including TFTS. Also a sleep study to rule out sleep apnea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
69-y Parkinson male. Took(Piribedil Sustained-release Tablets;Levodopa and Benserazide )for 9 yrs.Recently drug-resistant(cant lift legs),suggestions?
Please repost: Your dad maybe? Piribedil & bensazeride are not available in the US. Where does 69 live? In US or abroad? If he lives here, will he continue to make his US neurologist's life more diffcult by insisting on using foreign drugs? If he lives abroad, getting advice from a US neurologist is pointless if the US & foreign drugs aren't the same. You need to clarify. ...Read more

Diabetes non cot: Your friend should address this issue. How old she is, 43??, for how long has been managed with this medications ? and is an endocrinologist doing the management?

My 17 yo son has purchased: Test 600c (testosterone), Tren 75 (Finabolan), Var 10 (Anavar) and d-Anabol 25 (metandesenolone). Dangerous? Pls advise
Yes, very!: If your son has "purchased" these anabolic steroids, in all likelihood, he is not under the management of his physician. Excess T from unsupervised use is very dangerous and can increase risk for heart attack, stroke, mood changes, etc. It can also render men infertile as well as shut down T production. Best to see family doc for evaluation. If he truly has low T, need to find cause first. ...Read more
Forgotten pill on hols, was rigevidon (150 mg/30 mg levonorgestrel ethinylesradiol). Will mircodiol which has same quantities but desogestrel be ok?
Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) CP has 3mg synthetic progesteron while microgynon contains only 150 micrograms.Why such difference if both contain 30micrograms synth.Estrogen?
Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?
Probably Not: Especially for someone who is young. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't even get metabolized by the liver. That being said, it makes sense to monitor you liver w/regular lab-work & to ask yourself if exercise, nutrition, & meditation can help your symptoms & reduce your pill burden. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Good evening everyone, my estradiol on wendsday was 93 and on friday 131.17 tomorrow i will repeat it.Is all this normal or I should stop doing ivf?
Talk to your doctor: Only your ivf physician can interpret these numbers - s/he knows where you are in your ivf stimulation cycle, your clinical situation, and what doses of medication you're taking. If there is a question of stopping or canceling your cycle that is definitely something you and your doctor should discuss. ...Read more
Good evening everyone, my estradiol on wendsday was 93 and on friday 131.17 tomorrow i will repeat it.Is all this normal or I should stop doing IVF ?
Too early: If this is the initial phase of treatment, it would be too early to tell. If the Estradiol levels stall later or there is a limited number of follicle development on sonography then cancelling the cycle may be considered. At age 44 there is expected diminished ovarian function, which will give you a limited response during ivf. Good luck with your treatment. ...Read more
I'm ttc2nd child for 2months.now i did a test:FSH2.68mU/ml,Estradiol 240pg/ml,sex hormon binding glubulin150nmol/l on the 5th day of cycle.What means?
These are: sophisticated tests that need interpretation. Some experts believe an estimate of ovarian reserve (how many eggs you have/their quality) is indicated by the level of FSH or estradiol on day 3 of the menstrual cycle. Your FSH is normal; the estradiol is a little high.SHBG suggests how much estradiol might be available/"unbound". Your results are a little conflicting and need personal interpretation ...Read more

Depends on cycle: The Estradiol levels vary dramatically depending on when they were drawn during your cycle. This value would be in the normal range early in your cycle during the "follicular" phase, but abnormal around ovulation. It is perhaps more important what the fsh value was on day#3. Even more important is the question "why were you having it drawn in the first place?". ...Read more
Estrogen: Estradiol is the shortened version of 17 beta estradiol, a naturally occurring sex hormone in the estrogen family. In fact, it is the most active and the most prevalent of the three main Estrogens in reproductive age women. In women, it decreases dramatically after menopause. Estradiol is also present in males in small amounts. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: It depends on what your levels are. The range of normal for someone who hasn't gone through menopause is 15-350/400. A higher Estradiol number could mean you have an estrogen producing tumor. Definitely discuss this with your doctor, as i'm sure you already have, if you have a very high number. ...Read more
Don't take it: Why are you taking estrogen in the first place at your age? Are you taking Progesterone as well? Estrogen will stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system and this could cause nausea. If you get symptoms from taking any supplement or hormone. This is your body's way of saying "don't take this, you do not need it". ...Read more
