I need some medication to get some proteins cause I'm feeling very week need some strength to go to gym. suggest me some pills and too scared to do an?

No protein.: You need to find out why you are weak. Supplements are basically worthless, & you will do better, & your work-out will profit you more, if you eat real food, properly prepared. increased amounts of protein are unnecessary and do grant you more strength, only continued weight lifting improves strength. See Scwarzenegger's book "Weight Training for Athletes." Great book by a champion bodybuilder! ...Read more

Do psychiatrist medications cause extra creaky or weakened joint strength? Can they also cause arthritic symptoms?

Do psychiatrist medications cause extra creaky or weakened joint strength? Can they also cause arthritic symptoms?

A rare side effect: You do't specify the medication - so all one can say is that some do have rare reports of joint pain. Some are actually being prescribed to relieve such pain - and it is not likely to make sense anytime soon. Trust yourself - if you are not able to justify the negative side effects for the help - ask Dr. to get you off that one. Either try another or rely on CBT therapy. ...Read more

Does prescription strength acid reflux medication take away calcium from your body?Some patients are stating that their teeth become brittle, i'm worry

Not usually: Teeth are much more likely to be damaged from the long term effects of acid reflux than from the medication. However, one of the common side effects is dry mouth, which can contribute to tooth decay and gum problems. I would recommend using biotene mouthwash and toothpaste to improve the dry mouth situation and perhaps a Fluoride gel in a custom tray at night for maximum protection against decay. ...Read more

Aerius=desloratadine: I suspect that you're not in the states b/c aerius (http://www.Drugs.Com/uk/aerius.Html) is not a brand of Desloratadine sold here.

If a drug is suspended into 250 mg/ 5 ml suspension, 250 mg being the strength of the active ingredient. What do we call the 5 ml? Is it the dilution?

If a drug is suspended into 250 mg/ 5 ml suspension, 250 mg being the strength of the active ingredient. What do we call the 5 ml? Is it the dilution?

Not exactly: The term 250 mg/5 ml is the concentration of the drug (the amount of drug in milligrams in a particular volume of liquid). In other words, a much greater concentration would be 250mg/1ml (meaning the entire dose is present in a very small volume), while a much lower concentration (ie more dilute) suspension might have 250 mg in 10 ml. ...Read more

I have decreased kidney function. I require anti-inflammatory RX strength drugs. Which is better choice for my kidneys? NSAIDS or Corticosteroids?

Loaded...: You need to discuss your current medication regimen with a Nephrologist (kidney specialist) or qualified Internist or Family Physician. The Lamictal may be causing aches and pains in and of itself. And it may also affect kidney function. I don't think I would recommend any intervention (NSAID, Corticosteroid) until your medical history is fully taken into account. ...Read more

Would kroger brand xtra strength pain relief pm be a good over-the-counter drug to take for my knee replacement instead of vicoden?

Would kroger brand xtra strength pain relief pm be a good over-the-counter drug to take for my knee replacement instead of vicoden?

Possibly: Kroger brand xtra strength pain relief is acetaminophen, which is essentially tylenol. It may be weaker for pain than vicodin, but you will likely have less side effects than the vicodin if you are sensitive to narcotics. If the pain is not severe, i would go with the tylenol. Motrin and Ibuprofen are good over the counter options, but i would not take it constantly for a long time. ...Read more
