My nephew is in advanced stages of Crohn's disease. He has had many treatments including ramicade. Are there any new medications for him?
Several: There are several other drugs beside remicade (infliximab). However the first question is whether he needs his Remicade (infliximab) dosing optimized. Sometimes adding a second medicine on top of the Remicade (infliximab) can be beneficial.

In fact, anyone with an autoimmune condition, such as rheumatoid arthritis is not considered a candidate for laser vision correction at this time. If you are considering vision corrective surgery, your best option would be a refractive lens exchange given your condition, but you would need to be evaluated by an eye surgeon to establish your candidacy for this procedure. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'm using allergan (combigan and ganfort) for an advanced glaucoma. Are these the best drugs for treating glaucoma, or are there better ones?
Glaucoma: Both combigan and ganfort are combination drops. Both contain timolol which would be unnecessary duplicate therapy with potential for side effects. This maybe something to address with your eye doc.

Good luck ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does methocarbonol show up on a drug screen?also it is a urine test but its a new machine they pour it into that is really advanced
Not on a screen: It is a mild muscle relaxant with little or no abuse potential, and am not sure why you are worried about it, particularly if it is prescribed for you. I have not seen any false positives with it, and am not aware of any reports, although you can find hundreds of people asking about it If you tested for something on a screening test, they should be doing confirmatory tests, which will settle it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I work as an EMT-Advanced with Paramedics on an ALS unit as a FireFighter. Why do we give DuoNeb as a first line drug as apposed to Albuterol?
EMS treatment protocols are created by individual medical directors. The DuoNeb contains both Ipratropium and Albuterol. This combo treats both asthma and COPD patients as first responders may not know the underlying cause of a patient's breathing difficulty. The two medications work together to open airways (treating bronchospasm).

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
