I have a script for 90 ketamine 20mg caps but can't seem to get them locally - any idea where I can get them, legally - in Atlanta or on-line?

Good luck: The problem is that ketamine is a controlled substance. Many pharmacies (on a whim) choose not to fill patient's prescriptions if they are controlled substances. They are under enormous scrutiny from the DEA & have quotas in some states on how many of their total scripts can be controlled. All of this is legal & the DEA won't help. Try other areas or ask your doctor to call the pharmacy directly. ...Read more

Loeys Dietz child and my ascending aorta is dilated. Any knowledgable drs. In Atlanta?

Sibley Heart Center: Sibley Heart Center (with Emory University) has an excellent reputation. I'm not from the area and don't know if they have any special center for connective tissue disorders (like Loeys-Dietz, Marfan or Ehlers-Danlos), but that would be a good place to start. Medical treatment and follow-up may be sufficient if the dilatation is not severe. Good luck. ...Read more

If I have a pneumatic splint for my leg, is it safe to use on a trans-atlantic flight?

If I have a pneumatic splint for my leg, is it safe to use on a trans-atlantic flight?

No: The most common complication of prolonged flights, aside from uri's, is deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the lower extremity from prolonged immobility of limbs and sitting in cramped seats for long periods. Moving legs constricts veins and helps flow, preventing dvt. Splinting the leg prevents doing the things that can prevent dvt. Drink lots of water, move legs frequently, do not fly splinted. ...Read more

I live in the mid-atlantic (md) and take pulmoicort for asthma prn. I've felt very sob in the am & pm. Should I take my inhaler daily? Will it help?

I live in the mid-atlantic (md) and take pulmoicort for asthma prn. I've felt very sob in the am & pm. Should I take my inhaler daily? Will it help?

Take regularly...: Steroid inhalers, like pulmicort, are used in asthma to reduce airway inflammation. Unfortunately, it needs to be taken regularly to have this effect. You should not be taking it just when you are having asthma exacerbation symptoms as it does not work quickly enough. You need to use a bronchodilator, like albuterol, when you are having acute symptoms. ...Read more

I had swell on right side of lower neck one month back. Took fnac and report doesnot tells about tb. Atlast operated out. Biopsy tells TB or sle. Pls help?

Work with your doc: The good news is that no one saw cancer cells on the biopsy. Lupus or TB are both serious illnesses, but can be treated. Your physician will be able to complete testing to sort out the rest of the diagnosis with blood work. If she is unhappy with the pathologists reading, she cn have it sent to a referal center for another look. ...Read more
