How long does anaesthesia take to leave the body? I was under for 5hrs! I think I woke up yelling too and was very scared bad nerves afterward. Thanks

General anesthesia: In 30 to 60 minutes you should be awake in the recovery room. It is very common and not unusual to wake up yelling and scared. Some anesthetic agents can cause amnesia for a short time before and after surgery. I would focus on recovering from the surgery and not the anesthetic issues. I hope your recovery is smooth and rapid. ...Read more

Hi. I am scared about flights. Today I have to flight. How much dosage of Xanax (alprazolam) will help me and what time before to take it? Thanks

Depends: Xanax (alprazolam) is a fast short acting anti-anxiety medication. I would take it 30 mins before take off or earlier if anxious at the airport. Take the lowest dose that reduces your anxiety. Its always easy to add a 1/2 tablet if needed but if you take to much you won't feel well. Always take a test dose before the flight in the safety of your home because you need to know how your body reacts to the med ...Read more

My bf of 12 yrs has been making me to take pills called atroiza 4 two days &says I have to drink it for a week. I googled &scared. Wht does this mean?

Atroiza is an: Anti HIV medication. If you are in a committed monogamous relationship and neither of you have HIV, it would not make sense to take this. I suspect that someone has been cheating! You should ask and then reconsider your long term relationship goals. If you have been exposed to HIV you should seek the advise and management of a health care provider, not your BF. ...Read more
