Are Blood Thinning Properties Found In Tizanidine
Anticoagulants are any of a variety of drugs which decrease the body's ability to make or sustain blood clots. They fall, generally, into two categories. Drugs like Aspirin and clopidogrel (plavix) prevent platelets from forming the initial stages of a clot. Drugs like warfarin (coumadin) and dabigatran (pradaxa) block the later process ...Read more

Can epinephrine, or other stimulant chemicals found in pseudoephedrine disrupt sodium channels in the blood vessels? Thanks very much
? what you mean by: "disrupt." All neurotransmitters work by activating a variety of channels in cell membranes, turning them on or turning them off, or modulating the intensity of the response. Sodium and potassium channels are generally activated in tandem by epinephrine and other stimulant neurotransmitters, changing cell polarity and resulting in neurotransmission. This isn't disruption - its their activity. ...Read more
Oligoclonal Banding found in CSF not in blood. Is there other diseases they are found in besides MS?
Good question: While oligoclonal bands are often found in the CSF of people with MS, they are also found in people with infection, inflammation, and sometimes in normal cases. By themselves, they are not supportive of anything. Combined with MRI, history and physical exam data, they can support the diagnosis of MS. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
True or false: iron in hemoglobin molecules which are found inside of red blood cells give human blood its red color? Pleaseeeee help. Thanks
Both!: The iron is part of the hemoglobin, so if the hemoglobin is red, then the iron has a role in making it red. Without the iron, who knows what color the substance would be, but then it wouldn't be hemoglobin anymore. On the other hand, hemoglobin bound to oxygen appears as a red color. Hemoglobin without oxygen appears as bluish purplish, which is why well-oxygenated blood is quite red. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Im looking at taking the alpha brain supplement, are there any dangerous/illegal chemicals in it?
Everything has risk: Though i don't see anything illegal, any chemical that alters neurotransmitter levels can be dangerous or carry side effects. As I am not very familiar with a-brain, i can only say "take such things at your own risk." if you are concerned about fatigue or brain fog and the like, there are many other things to consider as well. I'd make an appt to talk with a holistic-minded doc about your concerns. ...Read more
Are there any negative health effects associated with taking red ginseng and dim (diindolylmethane) which is a natural estrogen blocker?

While both are safe, ginseng can cause anxiety and insomnia is some and rarely high blood pressure, low blood sugar, diarrhea etc.- see http://umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/herb/asian-ginseng for details. DIM is not an estrogen blocker but improves estrogen metabolism, helping it to be metabolized to safer substances. ...Read more

Is there any evidence that Betablockers deplete levels of CoQ10 in the body?I've heard taking CoQ10 can interfere with antiplatelet and blood thinners
Yes, possibly: While not widely known, according to http://tinyurl.com/zfr2xre beta-blockers can lower CoQ10 levels, and CoQ10 can reduce the dose of beta-blockers needed, so I advise all on beta-blockers to take CoQ10. CoQ10 may reduce effectiveness of Coumadin and Plavix, though it's not clear if that is clinically significant. If you take a steady dose of CoQ10 you can adjust the dose of Coumadin accordingly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

From the information you're giving us I'm not certain the information you're giving us I'm not even certain why they did it in a testing on you.

Why are some clots difficult for the body to break down? Blood thinners are used to thin blood, which aids in the natural anticoagulation, correct?
An example may help: Heart-attacks are frequently caused by the rupture of a plaque in an artery in the heart. A clot forms over the injury but this also occludes the vessel that supplies part of the heart. The clotting system is responding properly to vessel damage and doesn't know that the clot is iinjurying the heart. Blood thinners can break up clots like this allowing blood to flow back to the heart. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Tizanidine should not cause any changes in blood sugar level. The one caveat to this is if you have something like a spinal cord injury where you have large muscles in spasm, and tizanidine works very well cutting down these spasms, you could lower your metabolism thus increasing your blood sugar. Otherwise, if you dont have an sci/tbi/stroke, then it shouldn't change your sugars at all. ...Read more

High fat meals: The biggest consideration while taking Pradaxa in regards to food is the fat content of the meal that you eat around the time you take pradaxa. When Pradaxa is taken with a high-fat meal absorption is delayed by about 2 hours which means that it takes longer for the medication to reach its maximum effect. Unlike warfarin, you do not have to worry about your consumption of green leafy vegies. ...Read more
Aspirin: Aspirin works by 'poisoning' platelets. Once all the platelets have been affected by the Aspirin , if you stop there will daily be more platelets entering circulation that are not 'poisoned'. This is why Aspirin is given daily. One whole aspirin(325mg) a day generally will ensure that all the platelets are hit. The 81mg/day dose is effective for about 80% of people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
