It is ok to use old solutions, like for glasses cleaning?

It is ok to use old solutions, like for glasses cleaning?

Probably: If you are using a solution on externally worn eyeglasses, and it seems effective, it should have no effect on your health and hopefully it is not a corrosive solution which will damage your glasses.

I hate ehrs. Now they just use up my time to type their notes while I sit there and get charged. Is there any solution?

Experience: Ehr's were promoted under a false premise that they might improve medical care - but this was not subjected to clinical trials. Most ehr's are modified business programs, which require precision input to the computer taking time away from the patient. No study has proven their advantages except in billing efficiency and doctor monitoring. Improvements may come, but for now they are unproven. ...Read more

I have codeine 25mg/5ml oral solution prescribed november 2010 wih no expiry date. Can anyone over 18 still use this safely or do I need to dispose of?

Bad idea : No conscious physician would recommend any person other than the person prescribed take a prescription medication. Certainly not a controlled medication such as codeine. I'd talk to your physician directly about potential risks & side effects of controlled meds which can be fatal. ...Read more

Is it safe and also effective to use solo care aqua solution if it has recently expired \u0026#40;5/2014\u0026#41;, is it still good to use on my lenses or not . And of course i didn't open it before.

My 9 months old son has eczema, what is the best solution for me to use on him?

My 9 months old son has eczema, what is the best solution for me to use on him?

See below: Eczema is in the same family of conditions as allergies and asthma. It can't be cured but usually can be controlled. It is best managed by using a sensitive skin cleanser, avoiding bathing in very hot water, and using a sensitive skin lotion several times daily, even when the rash isn't there. If doing this doesn't help enough, please see his doctor for additional management. ...Read more

My Dr put me on hypercare 20% solution 3x daily can you use your deodorant on the off days?

My Dr put me on hypercare 20% solution 3x daily can you use your deodorant on the off days?

Question makes no se: This is to be used once a day, usually bedtime. If you use it 3x a day, how do you have an "off" day? If you READ THE LABEL on your deodorant you will discover it has the same thing, maybe a lower% aluminum chloride. So you can try different schedules to see which suits you. ...Read more
