Is it worth taking peptides for height for a 16 year old female who needs to be taller?

At 16 most girls have little if any growth potential left because the bone growth centers are closing. An x-ray of the left hand/wrist can be analysed for bone maturity.If the growth centers are open, more growth is possible, if closed, you're done. ...Read more

I am on trip for a week and have dry heaved twice. Can i take peptide bismol almost every day until i get home?

Sips of clear fluid: The best thing to do after vomiting (or dry heaving) is to stop everything for an hour or so, then start with small amounts of clear liquids (gatorade, weak tea, water). If that goes okay, then try some light food such as crackers, toast, dry cereal. Advance gradually but stay off of milk, milk products, juice, fried or spicy foods for a few days. If you continue to vomit, see a doctor. ...Read more
