Help! Need to know if there's a such thing as a 200 (pyrethins and piperonyl butoxide) dollar drug test?

Yes: For people who do the "full court press" - get the confirmatory tests upfront, or get them after a positive screening test, the use of gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy runs into several hundreds buck a pop. A $200 charge would not be at all unusual. ...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

Imitrex (sumatriptan) after 2 hour: According to the fda-approved directions, it is recommended to take a second dose of Imitrex (the same with another triptan - maxalt, relpax, (eletriptan) etc) 2 hours after the first dose. 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 more

Why does it take so much medicine to work on me? I can take 200 mgs of benadril with no effect!

Why does it take so much medicine to work on me? I can take 200 mgs of benadril with no effect!

Self medication: Self medicating can lead to disastrous results. Clearly overdosage of benedryl if taken at one time excessive dosage over twenty four hours. Would suggest drug disease mismatch see your physician and never exceed recommended dosage. Could create new and more serious disease. More is not better! ...Read more

M south indian. How aging works? Can we stop it? Is it a good idea? Could there have been people lived upto 200 years in the past like that said in bible?

Curious: I'm curious why you preface your questions with "M south indian." Please repost with an explanation of why you feel the need to state that. Also you show a commendable interest in cutting-edge biomedicine but paradoxically NO grasp of modern Biblical scholarship which firmly discredits the notion that people were actually as long-lived as the Bible states. They WEREN'T, you know. It's a MYTH. ...Read more

Can I safely take 400mgs of zoloft (sertraline). I'm currently taking 200 - 300 mgs daily. My depression varies and today its bad?

Can I safely take 400mgs of zoloft (sertraline). I'm currently taking 200 - 300 mgs daily. My depression varies and today its bad?

Please don't up your: Dose dependent on how you feel one day. It takes quite a while for serotonin levels to increase - so upping your dose for a day will not make symptoms better. 400 mg of zoloft (sertraline) is well above the recommended dosage. You need to discuss this with your psychiatrist/ physician. See that you drink socially - that is definitely contraindicated if you take zoloft (sertraline). ...Read more

I'm taking infexim-200 since 6 days before. But today I got inflammations on my penis and got backache. Is this a side effect of this medicine?

I'm taking infexim-200 since 6 days before. But today I got inflammations on my penis and got backache. Is this a side effect of this medicine?

No: That is a alternate name for cefixime, an antibiotic, which would not cause localized irritation of penis or back ache. Should be seen by dr, as might be herpes outbreak on penis, and could be urinary infection with kidney involvement for back pain just as two quick possibilities. Need examined to determine source. ...Read more

I was put on 200 mg provigil today and taken off adderal 30mg 2x/day. What are the possible side effects of switching and is the dosage similar?

I was put on 200 mg provigil today and taken off adderal 30mg 2x/day. What are the possible side effects of switching and is the dosage similar?

Noticeable change: The intention behind the change is important to know and so I can only surmise what it was although both good and bad things may happen as with most changes. The Provigil is more subtle in both therapeutic effects and side effects. The Provigil may cause less jitteriness and anxiety and will not have appetite suppression. Monitor for a strange rash or malaise from rare allergic reaction. ...Read more

How long is 25 hour half life?

How long is 25 hour half life?

Depends.: I am assuming you are talking about the half life of a drug. A drug with a 25 hours half life means that after 25 hours, the blood concentration of the drug will be halved. So at hour zero it's 100%. At 25 hours, the concentration is 50%. At 50 hours, it's 25%. At 75 hours, it's 12.5% etc. Please note that using half lives is an oversimplification and doesn't always correlate with drug effect. ...Read more

Exercise and caloric: Restriction. To effectively lose weight you need to do more physical exercise and reduce your caloric intake. To lose one pound you need to generate a negative balance of about 4500 calories. So reduce your caloric intake accordingly. It would be useful to consult a dietitian for advise on foods and quantity of foods. ...Read more

Spatial memory problem, can't find streets I passed by over 200 times, can't remember sequential information. Mri nothing detectable after car accident?

Sometimes not seen: After a car accident, there may be problems with memory or awareness, either due to brain circuitry disruptions, or to changes in emotions, which are linked to memory.

The next test that may help is a battery of neuropsychological tests, which are given by a special technician.

If I took a 200 mg Benadryl at 11:30 am, then another one at 3:30 pm, am I okay to drink at 10 pm?

.Don't drive!: If you took 200 mg Benadryl twice within 24 hours- it can make you sedated and if combine with alcohol really drowsy. I would wait minimum 8-12 hours after last dose. Still caution - have designated driver, avoid any situation you may get hurt. Better await 24 hours to be safe. ...Read more
