What is the effect of having alcohol(sometimes intense) with phenytoin sodium medication course going on(300mg/day)? Please answer precisely

What is the effect of having alcohol(sometimes intense) with phenytoin sodium medication course going on(300mg/day)? Please answer precisely

Off label opinion: Would propose that consumption of one or two drinks in 24 hrs would be unlikely to cause severe problems, but Phenytoin is a rather troublesome drug, as has zero order kinetics, and alcohol and Phenytoin can interact, which would create a problem with drug level fluctuation. Would discuss in further detail with your neurologist. ...Read more

Is the intravenous infusion that is given to a patient is the same as sodium bicarbonate or has some sodium bicarbonate added to some medication.thx?

Uncommon: Bicarbonate in intravenous infusion is uncommon and may be used infrequently to correct acid-base balance in metabolic disorders. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

What medication is better=== klaron (sodium sulfacetamide) or differin?

Differin, (adapalene) but...: Different people have different results, no pun intended. Today, no one needs to have acne. I start people with topical clindamycin; i required 25 years on systemic tetracycline with good results. A dermatologist can write for a retinoic acid derivative that's very powerful even for the toughest cases. Good luck. ...Read more

Need more info...: The specifics and relevance of points in this Q are not clear enough to deduce a proper answer, like why you used CPA & for how long, etc. Prostatectomy is done for benign obstructive voiding or prostate cancer; these two are done in different ways for different purpose. As a surgery, it affects the local function in voiding and erection as opposed to CPA induces its systemic effects including ... ...Read more

I m suffering from avascular necrosis of hips .... I m on medication taking vitamins calcium n sodium tablets ... Plz suggest?

Osteonecrosis (AVN): Nonoperative management for avn of the femoral head (hips) is generally ineffective. If 15% or less of the femoral head is involved & no symptoms are present, there is a chance it will resolve without surgical intervention. Treatment with bisphosphonates has been tried with variable results. Joint preserving surgical procedures may be the best available option. ...Read more

Is it ok I am taking bone-up superior calcium formula is a dietary supplement. Taking this instead of the medication alendronate sodium tablets 70 mg?

Is it ok I am taking bone-up superior calcium formula is a dietary supplement. Taking this instead of the medication alendronate sodium tablets 70 mg?

Osteopenia: Calcium is commonly not an issue as dietary calcium is often sufficient with most people's daily dietary intake. More commonly, osteopenia/osteoporosis is correlated with vitamin d deficiency. I'd have your calcium and vitamin d levels checked. Resistance exercises also help build stronger bones. There are side-effects to bisphosphonate therapy, but believed that their benefits outweigh the risks. ...Read more

I am hypothyroid and taking medication from past 15 years. Thyroxine sodium 62mcg. Can I use ground flaxseed? If not can I use flaxseed oil?Spirulina?

With thyroxine: I'm not sure if you're wanting to take the listed supplements instead of thyroxine (no) or with your thyroxine (yes). Essentially, if your thyroid levels are in the good range, you can take anything that someone with a normally working thyroid can take. Because different docs have different opinions, it's always best to check with your own doc, and make sure s/he knows exactly what you're taking. ...Read more
