Before I qualify for a second ablation procedure to re-treat AF, do I need to be in a state of constant or persistant AF? How is persistant defined?

Before I qualify for a second ablation procedure to re-treat AF, do I need to be in a state of constant or persistant AF? How is persistant defined?

Depends: It depends in part on how far out from your first procedure you are, whether or not you are taking anti arrhythmic medications and whether or not you are symptomatic. Persistent AF is simply AF lasting more than 7 days. It is not uncommon to have recurrent AF in the first few months after ablation and still be arrhythmia free in the long term but you will need to be followed closely. ...Read more

How often should I retreat lice with over-the-counter medication?

How often should I retreat lice with over-the-counter medication?

Just one retreatment: For head lice, treat every affected person on the same day. Remove all the bugs and nits from everybody's hair. Just using the medication (such as nix (permethrin)) is not enough. . . One must remove the bugs and nits. Each day, check everybody's hair for remaining nits to remove. After 7-10 days, treat with nix (permethrin) again, and do hair checks every day for one week after that. Then, do hair checks occasionally. ...Read more

I want to go on an ayahuasca retreat but I am on 40 mg of citalopram a day. How long do I have to stop the medication before I can interact with it?

I want to go on an ayahuasca retreat but I am on 40 mg of citalopram a day. How long do I have to stop the medication before I can interact with it?

At least 2 weeks: Ayahuasca can have very profound psychospiritual benefits & can help some people to overcome depression. However, as a MAO inhibitor it can have serious interactions with many drugs & one must also avoid many foods before using. Combining ayahuasca with citalopram can cause serotonin syndrome. Experts advise stopping citalopram for at least 2 weeks prior.

How can I overcome from insomnia occured after 10 days vipassana (mindfulness) meditation retreat?

How can I overcome from insomnia occured after 10 days vipassana (mindfulness) meditation retreat?

Sleep ; meditation: It's possible for the extended silence of a 10 day vipassana retreat to allow many things to come up for review -- things that your normal day-to-day busyness might suppress. After all, mindfulness is about waking up -- rather than going through our lives asleep. A psychotherapist familiar with meditation may be helpful to you now, in exploring your own individual experience. Many do this work. ...Read more

Achey legs. Knees. Shoulders. Just came back from a retreat...Tired also. Didn't do harsh exercise. Why do I feel so a achey?

Achey legs. Knees. Shoulders. Just came back from a retreat...Tired also. Didn't do harsh exercise. Why do I feel so a achey?

Lyme disease?: This is a worst case scenario answer - probably not the real answer, hopefully. Lyme disease can be contracted by a tick bite - I'm assuming that your retreat was in the woods in a camping or cabin setting. Lyme disease causes joint pains and flu-symptoms that are often elusive. If your symptoms are just now happening immediately after the retreat, chances are good you just have a virus. ...Read more

Dental #: I had a 2nd opinion on a dentists poor work. Now, how do I reapproach the original dds for re-treatment? Very concerned he will not retreat.

What disease does he: If a 14 month old is being treated with IVIG he must have a very serious condition. This is not something you do lightly for a cold. You have to sit down with his physicians and find out just what it is that your child has and just what his outlook is. You don't look for this sort of this sort of info on this site which is limited to 400 spaces! Good luck! ...Read more

I have a lot of pain and facial swelling from a root canal retreat. I was given penicillin v and metronidazole. When will the swelling go down?

Typically 3-7 days: Most advanced dental infections will take at least 2-3 days for antibiotics to start to have a positive effect. Depending on the progression and nature of the infection, this can take longer. One way to "get the upper hand" is to have a dentist make an incision and drain the swelling and greatly reduce the bacterial load. Facial swellings should be monitored as they can become quite serious. ...Read more

Should I re-treat (3rd time) a plantar wart, that has black spots, with Compound W Freeze Off? Child, 10 yrs.

Should I re-treat (3rd time) a plantar wart, that has black spots, with Compound W Freeze Off? Child, 10 yrs.

OTC wart treatments: Yes, you can continue to treat the wart, but follow the directions carefully. If the area becomes red and swollen, go see the podiatrist. Those little black dots are the small blood vessels that "feed" the wart. The acid/freeze compound is designed to destroy the small blood vessels which will in-turn make the wart die and fall off. Warts are viruses. ...Read more
