There is any vitamins/something that I can take to clean faster the medication of the depo shot from my system? Cause I wanna get pregnant in 2months.

Ans: You should not have taken the shot if you desired aboregnancy. You may still get pregnant on the shot but not recommended. What is the hurry? Better think this idea out a little more. Once pregnant that is that. Give time for the medication to wear off and then 3 months after to let the body regulate think about what you are doing it will affect your life forever. Be patient and do things the rig ...Read more

My eyes keep burning and they often get teary. Should I just keep washing them with cold, clean water or should I opt for medication? Thank you!

Sounds like Dry eyes: Dry eyes are an often the culprit of many symptoms in the eye which can include burning, stinging, tearing, foreign body sensation, tiredness, heaviness, blurred vision and eye pain. You can have some or all of the symptoms or even none of the symptoms and have dry eye. I would suggest starting with using over-the-counter artificial tears and a warm compress on the eye to see if that helps! ...Read more

Recent heart cath "totally clean". Have had bad cholesteral values for 25 years. Allergic reactions to all cholesteral meds. With a clean cath and an ef of 70% from and echo, should I even worry about a medication to lower cholesteral?

A: A presumably normal angiogram significantly lowers your risk particularly if you are not having cardiac symptoms. However, some risk remains because the angiogram takes a picture of the inside of the artery. The angiogram does not "see" the wall of the artery where arteriosclerosis takes place but can only identify whether that buidup in the wall is causing obstruction in the arterial tube. In other words, you could be building some plaque in the wall the angiogram does not see. You can see into the wall with certain tests such as special ct calcium scoring but that involves some radiation and only sees hard calcified plaque, not soft plaque. Family history is very important in these situations as well as your age. If your family history is benign and you are old enough to have developed plaque in presence of risk factors, this is a very good sign. You should look at your total cardiac risk including a detailed lipid profile and weigh that risk against the medications. If in doubt, consult the web and consult with a member of the national lipid association for an expert opinion on lipid management. ...Read more

I: I am so sorry to hear about your wife's difficult situation. My advice is to seek the care of a pain management specialist. This is a doctor that is trained to treat pain using the least amount yet most effective pain medications and/or procedures. Often times doctors are in a rush and don't have adequate time to deal with the complexities of pain management therefore she will be much better under the care of a pain management specialist.
I hope your wife finds help soon. ...Read more

Some: Some women definitely have more problems with others with menopause. You are correct, a healthy lifestyle can help with menopause symptoms. Eating a healthy diet, exercising, not smoking, and limiting alcohol intake to no more than 2 glasses a day is beneficial. Ideally, a patient should exercise 30 minutes a day. Just walking is a perfect exercise. Weight-lifting can be beneficial to avoid loss of muscle mass.

If a patient is hypothyroid, the best treatment is taking thyroid as you are. There are no other proven effective methods for the control of hypothyroidism. ...Read more

Difficult: Difficult to tell without a clinical examination, but it sounds like you might have a contact dermatitis. You probably should see a dermatologist who can definitively diagnose you and provide treatment options would might include topical steroid creams/ointments and moisturizer creams such as cerave or cetaphil cream. Sometimes, I even give patients a kenalog (triamcinolone) (steroid) injection to help if the condition is severe. Read more about contact dermatitis at the link below. I hope that helps. ...Read more

Enlarged prostate after a stroke, taking medication to reduce, has a catheter, bleeding of the prostate, cancer has been ruled out by the urologist, cleaning with saline bags. How long could this last?

Common senario: It's not uncommon for an older man to experience a worsening of prostate enlargement symptoms while ill and hospitalized. Enlarged prostates often have varicose veins associated with them. Many times after a stroke, patients are placed on anticoagulant medications which cause or worsen bleeding from the prostatic varices. Often, saline irrigation is used to clear the bladder of clots. The situation should be temporary and should improve as his medical condition improves ...Read more

Treatment not cure: The best and most effective medications for essential tremor reduce the tremor by 50% at best. There is no medication that is 100% effective. E.g.

How much time until I'm clean for a drug test?

From what drug: Used how much and how often. Cannot answer a question the way you posed it. Also depends on the kind of test they are using and how sensitive it is. For the majority of drugs, 3-5 days is the usual period of detection. However, some drugs stick around a long time - like marijuana or Methadone - and can be detected for many weeks in heavy users. ...Read more

How can I help someone addicted to drugs get clean?

Tough one.: If close to this person, have a chance influence. He or she has to get the message that you are there for them, you care, your not going to enable them, they're r headed down a path that only ends badly. Give them the # of drug rx center for when they are ready--usually when things can't get worse.

I took 2 alpralozam 1mg pills (prescribed) on friday and saturday I have a drug test on friday will I be clean?

Probably: Xanax is not routinely picked up on a drug screen. Regardless, if you have a valid prescription, that should be taken into consideration. I am concerned that a 16yo is taking Xanax. It's not that there are not good reasons to do so, it's just that there are not very many of them. If you do not have to use apralozam it would be much better. Xanax is a frequently abused drug and +/- addictive. ...Read more

I have been clean of weed for 23 days bought a take home drug test and failed, how much longer will it take to clear?

Often a long time: Unfortunately for everyone, cannabis stays on board much longer than drugs that are much more dangerous. It's stored in body fat and if you're dieting / exercising, it can be released months later. If you do test positive, it is likely to be at a low level and you might perhaps attribute it to passive exposure, or that you were in a jurisdiction where it was legal. ...Read more

Is there any drug to clean nervous system? Also is there any way to contact you so that I can explain my condition in detail.

It depends what you want to clean: There is no clear way to clean the neurologic system. Treatment depends on what nerves are involved, what CNS tissues are involved, what emotional issues are involved. The best approach is to discuss these issues in depth with your own physician. If you don't have a physician the local medical society should be able to help you find one. ...Read more

How can you clean THC out of your system before a drug test?

How can you clean THC out of your system before a drug test?

Stop Taking it: How long marijuana is detected in the urine depends strongly on frequency of use. In regular users (more than once a week), the marijuana metabolite THC-COOH builds up to a high level, often on the order of hundreds of nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml), from which it may take weeks to decline back below the threshold of detection. The situation is different for occasional users (no more than once a week), who often clear up in a couple of days. ...Read more

Can drugs effect male fertility even after having been clean for 20 years?

Probably not: Drugs have short-term effects on male fertility through suppression of sperm production. Long-term effects would reflect injury to the testes, the sperm producing organs, and such injury is rare.

Does a negative drug test mean you are clean from drugs? Pictures? Explanation.

Not necessarily: A drug test can have false negative results: sometimes a person can add chemicals to a urine sample to "hide" the drugs you are testing for. Sometimes people can substitute another person's urine or dilute urine. There are ways to get around a urine drug test. A sophisticated during testing facility will witness the provision of a urine sample and maintain the integrity of the chain of possession. ...Read more

What is the proper way to detox your body? I am going to be drug tested in about 7-10 days and have weed in my system. How do I get clean fast?

Detox not helpful: Unless using large amounts of cannabis for some time often urines will be negative after a week or so. The best way to avoid detection and be forthright about it is to simply ensure that you leave a dilute urine. This can be done by getting rid of the first urine of the morning and then drinking plenty of fluids prior to your leaving a sample. All the best. Is cannabis a problem for you? ...Read more
