What is safe to eat while pregnant and lactating?

What is safe to eat while pregnant and lactating?

Everything in limits: Balanced diet is the best thing. Water is the healthiest drink - and lots of it (>1 gallon/d). Too much of anything is bad - like fish is really good but too much gives excess lead! carbs provide energy and are good but too much welcomes diabetes fat-soluble vitamins are good & essential but too much result in toxicity. So take 1 prental vitamin/d, not more than that. ...Read more

Should different topical ointments be ever mixed? Can you tell me what side effects/if any could happen if you mix ammonium lactate cream, ketoconazal shampoo, betamethasone ointment, clobetasol propionate ointment?

The : The Betamethasone and the clobetasol are both steroids, therefore it is probably not a good idea to mix these together since steroids can cause thinning of the skin when used in high amounts or over prolonged periods of time. As far as the the other two ointments, there is no interaction as far as i can tell from my research; however you should consult the prescribing doctor or your local pharmacist to be sure. Take care. ...Read more

I stopped cdlexa over a week ago due to it might of been making me lactate. The doc says it should be out of my system but im still lactating. Preg test at office was neg mg period is due the 15th was it too early?

I stopped cdlexa over a week ago due to it might of been making me lactate. The doc says it should be out of my system but  im still lactating. Preg test at office was neg mg period is due the 15th was it too early?

What was too early?: If it is asking when to do a urine pregnancy test, the time is after a period has been missed (if the woman has regular periods). Breast milk production (when not breastfeeding) is listed as a possible rare effect of celexa, but because the breasts take time to go into milk production mode, the milk probably won't stop right away. The dr. Can decide when to test for more causes of lactation. ...Read more

Please help! what happens when someone has a drug overdose?

Please help! what happens when someone has a drug overdose?

That depends on: How serious it is and what drugs or medications were taken. Overdoses are often treated initially in an emergency room. The person is monitored and often they have intravenous fluids. If they stopped breathing - a tube can be inserted to assist with breathing. Sometimes they are given charcoal to absorb the drugs and sometimes their stomach is "pumped". They may need to be given medications. ...Read more
