Do I have to take My perscription for Mono-Linyah at the same time every day? Or does it matter as long as I take it daily?

Do I have to take My perscription for Mono-Linyah at the same time every day? Or does it matter as long as I take it daily?

Same time each day: Mono-Linyah is a combination (2 ingredient) birth control pill, and should be taken at the same time each day. Taking it at "the same time" means plus or minus a couple of hours. In reality, with combination pills, taking a pill many hours late may not noticeably increase the chance of pregnancy that month (taking a pill late is more risky if using progestin-only (1 ingredient) pills). ...Read more

My boyfriend had mono from his ex gf a year ago and we've been together for 5 months and im scared to kiss him? Woulld I catch it?

Relax: Mono can shed from oral secretions for years after a primary infection, but after 5 months you have had plenty of exposure. If you were going to get it from him you probably would have by now.

I have been exposed to mono and want to get a head start to fighting it. What should I take, when and how often?

Once exposed as an adult, it may be 3-6 weeks before you develop symptoms, if you are susceptible. There is no drug/supplement to take to ward it off. Just live life. Eat well, get proper rest and exercise and see what happens. ...Read more

How long does it take for ALT to go down and liver to no longer be mildly enlarged after mono? Never was tested for mono but still elev after 4 months

Mono: Typically, the liver numbers would be normalized four months after a bout of infectious mononucleosis.

If you have not yet seen a gastroenterologist, it would be important to do so to sort this out. Continue to avoid alcohol. Good luck. ...Read more
