This is serious: The incidence of death from drug overdose has been rising and now is higher than the fatality rate from ALL auto accidents. You need to contact your local health department and see what programs they have for you. In my state there is a website (Delaware) to help people who have had a drug overdose. Your doctor may also help but you can consult the web for more answers to your questions. ...Read more

How can I most effectively clear away pimples?

There is no best way: Often times consumers are sold on 'secret' treatments for acne. This is because acne is a difficult problem without a best way to treat all cases. Start with standard otc treatment: salacylic acid wash, benzoyl peroxide and a good moisturizer and if this is not effective make a visit with your primary physician to discuss prescription therapy. ...Read more

Atherosclerosis question. If you stop eating fats for one year, would that clear away your plaques?

Atherosclerosis question. If you stop eating fats for one year, would that clear away your plaques?

Maybe not: There's two points here: 1) eliminating all fats is not healthy, in fact it may be detrimental - you need some fats to survive & function. The trick is choosing the right fats. 2) even if eliminating "bad" fats, you may not get crystal clear arteries but the plaques will shrink and you'll slow the creation of new ones. ...Read more

Could sudafed clear away mucus in the eustachian tubes?

Could sudafed clear away mucus in the eustachian tubes?

Unlikely: Decongestants usually do not clear eustachian tube obstruction with mucus. It would not be harmful to try sudafed, but if say 5 days of treatment does not help, I would not continue. Trying decongestant nasal drops and lying down with your head turned to the side may allow the drops to get into the tube and might give some relief. In general, these are viral infections and immunity will cure. ...Read more

I am getting pimples on my face and it doesn't clear away. I have recently started vitabiotics skin hair & nails multivitamin. Breakout looks more now.?

Vitabiotics: I don't think the vitabiotics multivitamins are affecting the face - i'd place my money on it being a coincidence (although you could always just stop the vitabiotics and see). If the otc facial washes aren't helping for the acne, then I suggest talking with your doctor about prescription creams and possibly oral antibiotics. Best of luck. ...Read more
