What form of medication or supplement gets absorbed fastest? I was thinking maybe chewable tablets or liquid gel capsules.

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. If wondering about a specific medication, ask pharmacist! ...Read more

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?

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

I have had a stye since Halloween and i have gone to the doctors twice and got gel medication and eye drops and neither worked ?

Needs drainage: Most primary care doctors don't drain styes (I do if they can be drained easily). Usually an eye doc can take care of them (but they make you wait 3 weeks total time in most cases).

It : It sounds like you went over 24 hours without eating, which could certainly cause low blood sugar. This, combined with your medication regimen could have caused this extreme fatigue. If diabetes runs in your family, your risk of developing the disease is higher. However, experiencing hypoglycemia does not necessarily mean you have diabetes.

Symptoms of high blood sugar include extreme thirst/hunger, blurred vision, frequent urination, dry mouth, poor wound healing, recurrent infection and fatigue. See your doctor if you notice any of these signs of high blood sugar. ...Read more
