CVI?: This is most likely common variable immunodeficiency or one of its close relatives. It's quite common. Get two physicians' opinions. If they agree, you owe it to yourself to accept this gift. Cvi patients have difficulty making one class or another of antibodies, but thankfully other people's will work fine for you. ...Read more

Wat should you do if uv taken too much methotrexate as in 40 mg when ur only meant to take 10 mg subq but accidentally taken 30 orally by mistake?

Call doctor now: With a larger dose of methotrexate, it is not unusual to have symptoms of nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. For this reason and for the reasons that you are taking this (ectopic?) then you need to call your doctor right now! ...Read more

I had a subq injection thurs and think there might have been some air left in the syringe. I feel fine but how long would air embolism symptoms take?

You're safe: An air embolism needs to go directly into your vein to cause you harm. A tiny bit of air in the subcutaneous tissue is completely harmless. An air embolus would also affect you instantly. You can get some rest now and stop worrying. ...Read more

Is it bad to not aspirate when subq injecting? I'm using a genotropin (human growth hormone) goquick pen and there's no way to aspirate, what's the worst that can happen?

Is it bad to not aspirate when subq injecting? I'm using a genotropin (human growth hormone) goquick pen and there's no way to aspirate, what's the worst that can happen?

Not necessary: In general, the purpose of aspirating is to detect if the needle tip is in a blood vessel. If it is, the needle can be moved slightly to avoid an injection into the bloodstream. If you are using an injection technique of pinching the skin and underlying tissue (shown on Genotropin (human growth hormone) web site), the blood vessels will be compressed while injecting. That should prevent injection into the bloodstream. ...Read more

LMWH: You should be on treatment doses of Lovenox (enoxaparin) at 1mg/kg SQ twice daily if you have suffered a recent DVT and have lupus anticoagulants and use Lovenox (enoxaparin) as a bridge to warfarin. It is normal to feel injection site pain with treatment doses of Lovenox (enoxaparin). I instruct my patients to give "Lovenox (enoxaparin) in the love handles" and alternate sides , in addition to putting ice at the site for 5 min before injecting ...Read more
