Bacofen 10 mg twice daily and Nortryptilline 25 mg daily , and Feosol (ferrous sulfate) ,can cause severe weight loss?  22 pounds

Not specifically.: Baclofen is a muscle relaxant, Nortriptyline is an antidepressant and Feosol (ferrous sulfate) is for anemia. I believe that your depression maybe causing your weight loss and you need to go back to your doctor to have your medication adjusted. ...Read more

Quickening (Definition)

Daily quickening refers to looking for approximately 10-12 kicks over about 10-12 hours. Quickening is when a pregnant woman first notices baby movements or baby kicks. First movements are felt during the second trimester, with first-time pregnant women feeling quickening later in the trimester, and the experienced women being able to feel quickening early in the trimester. A woman's doctor can tell her how many kicks per hour or per day she should feel from the baby (and when to call the doctor), at each stage of the latter ...Read more

Is drinking 300mg of caffeine daily (instant coffee) at once safe?( meaning in one sitting)

Is drinking 300mg of caffeine daily (instant coffee) at once safe?( meaning in one sitting)

Yes and No: Asking physicians about caffeine is a great example of "Do as we say, not as we do." Physicians are notorious for suffering from symptoms of "Caffeinism" which results from the chronic use of 500mg or more of caffeine per day. Caffeine's stimulant effects are both a benefit and a potential curse. "Moderation is best" but again that is advice coming from a fully caffeinated physician. ...Read more

Which is better — 30 minutes of aerobic exercise every day, or one hour of aerobic exercise three times a week?

Which is better — 30 minutes of aerobic exercise every day, or one hour of aerobic exercise three times a week?

Longer, less frequent sessions of aerobic exercise have no clear advantage over shorter, more frequent sessions of activity: Any type of aerobic activity contributes to cardiovascular fitness. In fact, even divided "doses" of activity — such as three 10-minute walks spread throughout the day — offer aerobic benefits. What's most important is making regular physical activity part of your lifestyle. For most healthy adults, the Department of Health and Human Services recommends: At least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity (think brisk walking or swimming) or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity (such as running) — preferably spread throughout the week. Activity sessions should be at least 10 minutes long. , Strength training exercises at least twice a week. . As a general goal, aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, work to increase your activity even more. ...Read more

Can drinking at least 3 bottles of water a day cause loose bowel movements?

Can drinking at least 3 bottles of water a day cause loose bowel movements?

Probably not...: When defining "normal" for most things in medicine, consider a bell curve. Regarding stool frequency, "normal" is anywhere from 3 movements a day to once every 3-4 days. The peak of the bell curve (ie. Most common) is the magic 1 movement a day that everyone thinks is "normal." the bristol stool scale can also be used to define "normal" stool texture. Your doctor can help find "your normal.". ...Read more

Is running good to lose weight for atleast 20 min everyday?

Is running good to lose weight for atleast 20 min everyday?

Long distance: Jogging, while not recommended by many because of the potential orthopedic problems, is possibly one of the best methods of losing fat. Low resistance, high repeititon, and long duration large muscle use burns calories while not bulking muscle. Twenty minutes may not be long enough to get to "fat burning" and if you use this method it should be at least 40-60 min 3x/week. ...Read more
