Would it be safe to insert acidophilus capsule into vagina,does capsule dissolve or should I break capsule and insert only the powder with suppository?

Safe: It is safe to use vaginally. The forms you buy at the store are likely made to dissolve in stomach acid so it might not dissolve completely vaginally. We used to tell women to put live culture yogurt in the vagina to restore the normal flora! ...Read more

It's okay to use 2 different name brand bottles for breastfeeding right?

It's okay to use 2 different name brand bottles for breastfeeding right?

Should be fine: Once breastfeeding is well established and your baby has regained its birthweight, it is ok to introduce a daily bottle, especially if you need to return to work. It is good to do this between 2-3 weeks of age. If you have a flexible baby, they will adapt to different nipples. If not, you might find that it is best to stay with one kind. ...Read more

Is expired zorfan safe to use? It's about 7 months expired, dissolvable tablet form.

Is expired zorfan safe to use?  It's about 7 months expired, dissolvable tablet form.

Maybe: If not exposed to temperature and humidity extremes, i suspect most tablet type medications are good beyond their expiration dates. I usually tell my patients to throw things out more than a year past the expiration date. I would not trust an old antibiotic or blood pressure medication personally. I wish there was a simple answer to your question. ...Read more

Pregnant & on 200 mg prometrium (micronized progesterone) vaginally.I insert the capsule at night,but hv to get up in 2-3 hrs to pee.Worried if prometrium (micronized progesterone) leaks out?

Here's some...: Did you see something leaking out? To see is to believe. Largely, a suppository of this nature should melt for absorption in 2-3 hours. But nowadays, do HPT in a week after missing period & repeat it in a week if the first test was (-) or still in doubt; HPT is easy to get & use with high accuracy and reliability so to relieve a great stress for all sexually active women. ...Read more

Why does the pharmacy print dosages in milliliters?

Why does the pharmacy print dosages in milliliters?

A matter of accuracy: Medication dosage often needs precision for the illness or to make the meds last. There is a problem using common kitchen measures to do so. If i want a kid to get 5ml of med/dose, i could write for a teaspoon, but some common teaspoons would measure out 3.5ml and some 7. Over time i could under or over medicate the patient. Millileters are easily measured by syringes or droppers & assure accuracy. ...Read more

Does missing 2 tablets of medroxyprogesterone acetate according to my doctor's prescription would be ineffective? Can't afford.

Does missing 2 tablets of medroxyprogesterone acetate according to my doctor's prescription would be ineffective? Can't afford.

Take your medicine: I am not sure why you are taking this medication. If it is for birth control then you need to take every single pill every single day. If this is for controlling bleeding, then you may be able to skip a pill but you should talk to your doctor about cheaper, long-term options. ...Read more
