It : It is generally not recommended that Clotrimazole and Migranal (dihydroergotamine) be taken together. The combination can cause higher levels of Migranal (dihydroergotamine) in the blood and a few cases of toxicity have been reported. Luckily, no problems have been reported with the Clotrimazole lozenges though a theoretical risk exists. Symptoms of toxicity include numbness, tingling, abdominal pain, chest pain, muscle cramps and rapid pulse. If you are feeling any of these call your doctor or go to the emergency room. Good luck! ...Read more

What is love?

What is love?

A small word: with a universe of meanings. "In love" is an obsessive infatuation. It feels great but it's overrated as being 'true love.' Mature love is different. The object of love is priceless, greater than your most valuable possession. But you don't cling or control- you want the beloved to have the best, even if it costs you. The great teachers agree: Love yourself and love the other just as much. ...Read more
