What form of medication or supplement gets absorbed fastest? I was thinking maybe chewable tablets or liquid gel capsules.
Varies: It depends upon what medication you are talking about. In general, however, fastest absorption is the sublingual route, where the medication is placed under the tongue. Very few medications, however, are designed to be taken this way. Next fastest are usually the gel caps. Chewables actually have about the same absorption as solid pills.

Had Bacterial Vaginosis, but it went away a few weeks ago with medication. I now think I have it again, shall I go to the doctors? Or purchase BV gel?
Not very effective: Recurrent BV is very common. Unfortunately, vaginal metronidazole (BV Gel, Metrogel, etc) rarely works. If that's what you were treated with last time, it may be why the problem came back. You should contact your doctor, who probably will want to examine you to confirm the diagnosis. Ask about treatment with metronidazole by mouth. Also have STD testing if not yet done. BV can be a sign of STD. ...Read more

If you don't have any numbness or tingling in your fingers, just pain, you probably don't have carpal tunnel. Other causes of hand pain at your age include possible ligament injuries, joint laxity, inflammatory arthritis. Get it checked out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Abilify (aripiprazole) will not cure muscular rigitity. It's mechanism is unlikely to cause more but it could. Do you sleep poorly at night or grind your teeth? If so, needs management. Sleep key to muscular health, Clonazepam 1 mg at bed may help. ...Read more

Whatever : Whatever bacteria is present that is causing this odor and discharge may not be responding to metro-gel anymore. You may be resistant, your history actually points to it.
