My doc suggested betamethasone injection 3impule in one injection n should repeat after 24hours isn't it very heavy dose for fetal as I feel numbness?

Yes: Betamethasone is injected every 24 hours for two doses to help your baby's lungs and brain mature. Usually this is prescribed when a physician is worried about the baby being delivered early and the risks of prematurity out weigh the risks of the steroid injection. ...Read more

Hi. My wife took diprofos injection for her allergic.. Is it harmful if we want to have baybe soon? Peaple told us we need to wait 6 months Thank

No: 3 weeks would be sufficient. If she has asthma, be sure that she gets it under control before getting pregnant since some people's asthma does get much worse with pregnancy and poorly controlled asthma is not good for the fetus. ...Read more

Hii doctor my wife is pragent doctor give 2 diprofos injection between 24 hour this is good for pregnancy?

Corticosteroid: We don't know how far along the pregnancy is and why the injection was given. Maintaining the mother's health is good for pregnancy. If the treatment was prescribed to treat an acute condition in the mother, then yes. It is best to ask your doctor as to the purpose of the injection and its potential effect on the fetus as well as the pregnancy. ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. If your tests are neg. Not pregnant. ...Read more

I injected vit d3 1ml injection. My level is 25 vit-d. what dose u suggest according to my level. I feel better than oral. Whaenever I injected.

How many units?: I want my patients vitamin D levels to be "optimal". I consider a serum level of 50 to 70 ng/mL to be optimal. Certainly not too low, but not too high either. I would ask your doctor to continue to monitor your serum level until it is optimal while titrating your dose to achieve that effect ...Read more

Is it safe to go for abortion in 13th week after using progesterone injection of 5 doses?

Is it safe to go for abortion in 13th week after using progesterone injection of 5 doses?

Yes: If your question is, is it safe to obtain an abortion 13 to 14 weeks, the answer is that abortion at the end of the first trimester beginning of second trimester is a very safe procedure. The fact that you've taken Progesterone shots has very little to do with whether the procedure is safe or not. So long as your doctor is trained in this procedure the likelihood of a complication is incredibly low. ...Read more

Discuss with doctor: There are many ways to effectively treat JIA with Methotrexate and biologics (Enbrel, Remicade, (infliximab) Humira, Orencia).Every doc has their own style and can work as long as the starting dose is titrated to work but not cause too many side effects. I would start a typical 50 lb 6yo with either 10 or 12.5mg of injected Methotrexate weekly but all kids are unique so your doc may start with a different dose ...Read more

What are the adverse effects of methylcobalamine injection 500 mcg on alternate days for upto 7 injections, can the first dose cause anaphylaxis?

Need 2nd dose: Usually, anaphylaxis (& allergic reactions) requires a SECOND exposure to the foreign substance. The first exposure, which could be decades ago, "primes" the immune system. The second & subsequent exposures cause anaphylaxis. However, methycobalamine (Vitamin B12) is a natural & necessary vitamin, so if u react, it wd b from a preservatives or excipient in the injection. There r few other side eff ...Read more
