Hi, I don't consume alcohol very often, but within five minutes of drinking I have terrible back pain. Why does this happen to me, any suggestions?

Hi, I don't consume alcohol very often, but within five minutes of drinking I have terrible back pain. Why does this happen to me, any suggestions?

Don't know why, but: I bet you are smart enough to figure out that until you know how to fix whatever is wrong, the right choice is to not drink alcohol. Right? If you suffer fro fibromyalga, I guess this might be related. Who knows? Ask your provider - but, again - don't drink. If it's a rare thing anyway, that should be reasonably easy. So, find other ways to have fun and avoid the pain. Best! ...Read more

You don't need it: Chlamydia urethritis is treated with 1 dose of 1 gram of azithromycin. It seems that you have already taken much more than is needed cure this type of chlamydial infection. This drug has a long half life and will be actively treating your infection for more than 5 days after your last dose. I don't understand your reference to alcohol. Alcohol does not affect azithromycin. ...Read more

Is 5-htp and l-tyrosine the same or different?

Is 5-htp and l-tyrosine the same or different?

Different: 5htp is a precursor of serotonin, an inhibitory neurotransmitter. L-tyrosine is a precursor of the dopaminergic neurotransmitters Epinephrine and norepinephrine, which are stimulatory neurotransmitters. Although both 5htp and l-tyrosine may act as anti-depressants, they act in completely different ways. 5htp is best taken at bedtime; l-tyrosine should be taken in the am or during the day. ...Read more
