Should people buy and use enemas while traveling in other countries?

Should people buy and use enemas while traveling in other countries?

Staying hydrated: while traveling could mean u can forget about those enemas entirely. It's quite common to become dehydrated and therefore at risk for being constipated while traveling.

Are these medicine's okay together? I just like a couple opinions. Lithium, lorazipam, claritin, (loratadine) omeprazole, colace, iron & flonaise?

Are these medicine's  okay together? I just like a couple opinions.  Lithium, lorazipam, claritin, (loratadine) omeprazole, colace, iron & flonaise?

Looks fine to me: The combination looks fine to me. I don't see any problems with it. The only thing that i would question would be use of colace. I don't know how long you're going to need to be on the iron. Something along the lines of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) may be better for you. Otherwise i don't see anything in the way of drug drug interactions that should be problematic. ...Read more
