I would like to ask about vasectomy procedure, it's side effects and how long does it take to be sterile after the procedure? How much does is cost?

Vasectomy facts: 1 or 2 small incisions are made on the scrotum. After isolating the vas it is divided between 2 clips or sutures with a piece removed. The skin is closed with 2-3 small sutures. Unusual early complication can be bleeding with swelling. Or rarely late ones such as wound infection or separation. It takes 5-10 ejaculations to clear residual sperm. Rarely vas recanalization can occur.
Cost: $300-500 ...Read more

I took a 30mg prescribed oxycodone at 8am and need to drive at midnight, is this fine if I feel normal, or would the side effects still be there?

That is a large dose: And should only be given to people who are used to talking that large a dose (who have been on lower doses that are no longer working). While in most people the dose would be long gone, if you have been taking them regularly, and particularly if they are the long-acting form, they may still be having activity. Talk to your prescriber and/or pharmacist who know your history and conditions. ...Read more

Can someone tell me how likely I am to be healthy while on zoloft (sertraline)? I just started it, & I really want to be fine & not have dangerous side effects.

Can someone tell me how likely I am to be healthy while on zoloft (sertraline)? I just started it, & I really want to be fine & not have dangerous side effects.

Talk with doc: Do not be afraid to let your doctor know that you fear the side effects of zoloft. At the end of the day, nothing is free of side effects, but at least address your concerns and see what the alternatives are? If the zoloft is effective, you may not require as much xanax (alprazolam) usage? Again, let your doc know your concerns. ...Read more

Insulin serum test was 57. What does that mean & possible cause or side effects. Been to 3 doc & all Say I'm fine. I don't believe that. Help please?

Insulin serum test was 57. What does that mean & possible cause or side effects. Been to 3 doc & all Say I'm fine. I don't believe that. Help please?

Insulin resistance: Always ask for normal reference range. Different labs use different methods, sometimes w/different units. So a result of 57 w/o context (reference range) is close to useless. However, my guess is that it's elevated but that's really only true if blood drawn while fasting. Any time you eat, your insulin level will increase in response. But should be lowest when fasting. So if it's high, that's resi ...Read more

UTI supposed to take Macrobid BID, but the side effects are to much to handle. I am taking QD and I am doing fine. Will it still work this way?

Not well: This medication is designed to be taken twice a day. Less that this, and there is not enough medicine in the system to adequately kill the bacteria. Symptoms may subside, but they will very possibly reappear once the medication is stopped. ...Read more

I am taking Prozac 40mg since a few years. My doctor has asked me to taper off by shifting to 20mg immediately. Is that fine and without side effects?

I am taking Prozac 40mg since a few years. My doctor has asked me to taper off by shifting to 20mg immediately. Is that fine and without side effects?

Give it a try: If your doctor has advised you to reduce the dose, that is a reasonable suggestion. You may not need the higher dose if you do not have the symptoms for which the medication was prescribed. I would recommend that you exercise regularly. Exercise is an effective treatment for mild depression.
Wish you good health. ...Read more

Paragard: Paragard is an intrauterine device to prevent pregnancy. Mirena (levonorgestrel) is another option, also an iud. Risks of paragard are of it coming out (very rare), or increased cramping or bleeding which usually resolve. Infection is a very rare risk. Risks of Mirena (levonorgestrel) are initially cramping and heavier periods, but the patient usually then has no periods for about 5 years. Initially after placement, the patient usually needs pain medications or advil. They are both good forms of effective birth control. ...Read more

Is supplements which contain citrulline malate fine for 16 years old person or it will has any side effects on height or kidneys or livers or bones?

Nobody really knows: Such supplements are not studied enough by researchers because these supplements are not fda-approved drugs for treating particular disorders. Nobody knows for sure what may happen if a teen takes performance-enhancing supplements. So, it is best for all young athletes to train and build their bodies the natural way, with healthy foods, avoiding sports supplements or body-building supplements. ...Read more

Florinef (fludrocortisone) for pots 50mcg felt a lot better now. 1mg feel dizzy and sick. Will these side effects go? Potassium is fine weekly blood test. Ughh!

Lower dose?: You may need to lower the dose, but you should only do this with your doctor's supervision! Never stop Florinef (fludrocortisone) abruptly, it could lead to fatal adrenal crisis if you were previously on it for awhile. Florinef (fludrocortisone) supresses your body's natural production of cortisol, so stopping suddenly can cause low cortisol crisis. ...Read more
