Can barbiturates effect an EEG in a teen if the giver does not know the med is in your system ?

To get six packs easily in a month can I use any medicines or syringe's. Is the way good or any side effects to heart or health.

Depend on what are we starting with. Full six pack with a regular belly not possible. But if you have strong muscle and want to define them, then is possible. Cardio in am, weight pm with abs. ...Read more

I want to know what it means when a drug blocks sodium channels in the brain. Is that good or bad for my metabolism? Topiramate.

I want to know what it means when a drug blocks sodium channels in the brain. Is that good or bad for my metabolism? Topiramate.

The way it works: Blocking sodium channels in the brain is the MECHANISM OF ACTION in most antiseizure drugs. Changing electrical activity in this way reduces/controls epileptic fits. Since it's CRITICAL to control seizures we feel that possible side effects on overall metabolism by sodium blockade is an acceptable tradeoff of side effects that could act systemically.
