Is it safe to take over the counter senna laxative every day to relieve constipation?

Constipation

Constipation
Constipation becomes more of an issue as we grow older. If a high fiber diet, plenty of water and avoidance of too much dairy( they harder the stool) doesnt keep tou regular, then It's much better to take a daily laxative than to strain or not go for days. More importantly, if you haven't had a recent colonoscopies exam, you should have one to make sure nothing else is going on.

What is the best over the counter meds or way to cleanse your system? Want to cleanse my system because have never done it other than a laxative.

Not necessary

Laxative
Intestinal tract normally cleans itself. Many people require laxatives or stool softners if bowels can not be regulated by diet alone. Various so called spa treatments, bowel "cleansing treatments" & high colonics etc. vary from unnecessary to somewhat fraudulent. They only truly benefit those receiving payment. Don't ask the provider about benefits, they are biased & have mortgage payments.

Hello.

Hello. They can be quite effective. Drink at least 8 8 ounce glasses of water and try to eat 5 servings of vegetable and four servings to fruit per day to help avoid constipation. Move about every day - walking is fine. Try to avoid junk food.

Can you tell me how to counter act my lexapro side effects?

Can't

Lexapro
the nausea and headahces early on in treatment the first few days to a week should go away on their own, but vivid dreaming, sexual side effects, and increased appetite may not go away. You can exercise and be mindful of your eating to decrease the likelihood of weight gain.

Does taking a beta agonist for asthma and a beta blocker for high blood pressure counter act each other in any way?

Possibly

Blood_pressure
Avoid beta blockers during active asthma/bronchospasm as the airway issues could worsen. That said, when asthma is in the past and not an active concern, then some beta blockade might work and be tolerated. Would try to use beta 1 selective agents in such a case

Dr. Joseph A. Kuhn answered:

how do you counter act the malabsorption of gastric bypass to get the maximum benefit of the prescribed medication?

Meds absorb fine

Bypass_surgery
Medications absorb in the small intestines quite easily following the gastric bypass. Experience with a Pill Camera shows that many pills pass through a normal stomach in 10-15 minutes anyway. Therefore, your prescribed meds should absorb fine.

I take seroquel for my bipolar disorder what vitamin can i take to counter act the weight gain and help with weight loss?

Seroquel & weight

Open-uri20130218-28632-ji003g
There is no known vitamin depletion associated with taking Seroquel, but it is associated with weight gain, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes in some people. For best results you'll need to make sure you're exercising daily, and eating healthy whole (non-processed w/trans fats) foods -- emphasizing veggies & high-fiber carbs (brown rice, if any) rather than rapidly absorbed sugars.
