5 Hours Energy Shot
Intrinsically, No.: If you need to stay awake for 5 hours and have no physiologic reason to avoid stimulants i don't see this as bad per se. However, repeated use or dependency might make you wonder if something else is underlying. Clearly there are many conditions and medications which would make taking stimulants unwise. Mixing other psychoactive drugs including the illegal stuffs and alcohol probably not good. ...Read more
Hyper : Prednisone already makes many people feel "bouncy". Throw in a stimulant and you may not feel well at all. You may also get indigestion or stomach pain. Prednisone is an anti inflammatory medication and energy drinks often contain lots of caffeine. The combination may be too much for your stomach, too. ...Read more
Painful migraine! took Imitrex (sumatriptan) (100mg) two hours ago. Is it more effective to take second dose 2 hrs after vs. 4 hrs?Not 2exceed 200/24 hr

The maximum dose for 24 hours is 200 mg, although the drug is washed out of the body in 4 hours and taking a third 100 mg dose within 24 hours is not dangerous, but each person is different, so check with your doctor first. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See a doctor!: The site of infection would determine the treatment. Not all fever is an infection that requires antibiotic therapy so i would see a doctor if fever persists to decide if an infection is present or if there is another reason for this problem. Most fevers without severe symptoms are usually viral infections that go away within 3-7 days. ...Read more
5 Hour Energy: It is my opinion that one should not use 5 hour energy drinks at all because of potential for adverse effects on blood pressure and the heart. Azithromycin is subject to degradation when exposed to an acid environment. 5 hour energy will increase the acidic level of the stomach and could inactivate part of the dose of azithromycin. ...Read more

Not good: Claritin, (loratadine) i believe, is either 1 or 2 per 24 hours. 5 obviously exceeds that. I don't think that you will overdose on 5 claritin (loratadine), (loratadine) but you may need to keep better track of how you are taking otc meds. Some meds can be complimentary and can be used together, such as Nasalcrom spray and claritin (loratadine). It would be good to see an allergist for treatment options if your allergies are severe. ...Read more
