Does The Combined Pill Have To Be Taken In The Correct Order
Can Nuvaring be used to effectively treat acne or does the birth control need to be in pill form because of differences in doses, etc.?
No.: Nuvaring is not intended to be used as an acne treatment, and is not approved for that use. It can, as a side effect, make acne better, or worse. I've had patients tell me that their acne improved while using the Nuvaring, and others have said that their acne was worse than ever while using it. So it's totally unpredictable. Rather than roll the dice, see a dermatologist for a proper acne regimen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

If being pregnant can put autoimmune in remission is there a medication with the same hormone that can do the same? Can this be a treatment?
Autoimmune disease: Autoimmune disease is often less severe during pregnancy, for example with rheumatoid arthritis. It makes sense that if you could chemically simulate pregnancy, you might suppress autoimmune diseases. Unfortunately this isn't feasable as a long term solution and we don't have a perfect model. Prednisone is a steroid immunosuppressant but the side effects of long term use limit its use ...Read more
Was told that Mercilon may be ineffective in case of diarrhea and vomiting. True? And to what extent-how many hours it takes pill to be absorbed??)
Yes: No oral medicine works if you vomit it up. How long absorption takes varies some with gastric emptying time and when you are having GI issues, this can be prolonged. It is safest in this setting to be sure to use a backup method until you are in your next package and the nausea, vomiting and diarrhea have resolved. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Once you have a B12 deficiency and take monthly injections, will that be the case for the rest of your life or will you be able to stop injections?
B12 deficiency: Unfortunately, you will need to take B12 lifelong. To stop would put you at risk for anemia and severe neurologic problems like neuropathy, difficulty with balance and walking, "megaloblastic madness", and death. Sometimes, patients can take high doses of vitamin B12 1-2 mg orally once daily instead of the shots. Ask your doctor if this is possible for you. ...Read more
Is 100mg the highest dose of topamax (topiramate) for migraines and can it be taken with other pills? Also can you take it once a day or must it be split?
Not really: The clinical trial in migraine prevention used 100 mg as the maximal dose. Since the medication is not a delayed release preparation, should be administered twice a day. Increasing the dose can cause further resection in frequency and intensity of migraines, but at the risk of side effects. ...Read more

Is it safe and will one antibiotic not rule out the other when taking a mix of azithromycin and doxycycline? My situation calls for both to be taken.
Multiple antibiotics: Taking more than one antibiotic at a time does not negate the effectiveness of the other. As a matter of fact some prescription medications combine two antibiotics in the same pill. Just make sure both doctors who prescribed the antibiotics for you are aware that you are taking both. In some cases, one antibiotic can give you the same coverage or effect as taking the two individually. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can endoscopy be used on a Virgin to remove a cyst in the ovaries? Will it affect her in the future? and does it have any effects on the hymen?
Entry Point: I would ask your MD which approach he is planning on using - vaginal or abdominal. Express your concerns about damage to the hymen. Abdominal approach is a small incision through the skin of your stomach to allow the tubing to enter inside you and look at your ovary. This allows the MD to perform surgery using a small incision. This route would not affect your hymen. ...Read more
