M 82 saw dr for blood in urine. Given abiotic & schedule cystoscopy in 2 wks. Blood quantity has incrsd. Greatly. Go to ER or wait & call dr. Am?

Increased hematuria: You should have your mother go to the er. Passing a large amount of blood in her urine is not due to a uti. She is also on metropolol, which would lower her pulse rate, which could lower her BP more if she bleeds a lot. Take her to the er and have her hemoglobin and blood pressure checked if the amount of blood in her urine has increased, as you state, greatly. Good luck. ...Read more

Is sleep quantity or schedule more important?

Hard question: Not sure what is meant. Sleep quantity (as long as at least 6 hours) should be on a set schedule. So I vote for schedule.

What quantity of people commit suicide each year because of bullying?

It happens: As a pathologist, the emotional autopsy following a homicide or suicide is part of our work. Bullying is deplorable and the fact that we ignored it for centuries or considered it "part of building character" is equally deplorable.

Can I break sucrafate tab (1g) in half? There is also a syrup avalabke but my question is about tablets that I have in latge quantity.

Yes: You can break them in half, but make sure that you are taking both halves and taking them as prescribed. The quantity is fairly large because that medication is usually prescribed 3-4 times a day. It works locally within the GI tract rather than in the blood stream so breaking them is ok. Hope this helps. ...Read more
