A toddler who is 11 mmonths old, got an influenza vaccine that is reccomended for 36 months and older , is that dangerous for the 11mo. Old?

A toddler who is 11 mmonths old, got an influenza vaccine that is reccomended for 36 months and older ,  is that dangerous for the 11mo. Old?

No: The only difference between the vaccine for under 36 months and older children is the dose (0.25ml vs 0.5ml) and under 36 mo vaccine has no preservative, it is not uncommon to use them interchangeably, with the appropriate dose age adjustment. I wouldn't worry. You did the right thing in getting your baby vaccinated. Influenza in infants can be very serious. ...Read more

I've been having nosebleeds; 1 a day, for the past 4-5 days. The last 1 was severe. Recently had a typhoid & influenza vaccine, is this related?

I've been having nosebleeds; 1 a day, for the past 4-5 days. The last 1 was severe. Recently had a typhoid & influenza vaccine, is this related?

Nose bleed: Most nose bleeds can be attributed to severe dryness of the nasal mucosa causing capillaries to break. This dryness can be caused by allergies. I do not think there is a relationship between the vaccines and nose bleed. Over the counter nasal mists can help in preventing further nose bleeds. If continues seek consultation with your primary doctor. ...Read more

Please help! what happens when someone has a drug overdose?

Please help! what happens when someone has a drug overdose?

The person is monitored and often they have intravenous fluids. If they stopped breathing - a tube can be inserted to assist with breathing. Sometimes they are given charcoal to absorb the drugs and sometimes their stomach is "pumped". They may need to be given medications. ...Read more

Can i drink alchol/beer while taking Doxycycline 100mg & fluconal(fluzone) 200 mg?

Can i drink alchol/beer while taking Doxycycline 100mg & fluconal(fluzone) 200 mg?

Avoid alcohol: Fluconal is the trade name for fluconazole, an anti-fungal, in some countries. (Fluzone is influenza VACCINE). Some reports suggest that adding fluconazole to doxycycline can synergistically increase the anti-fungal effects of doxycycline. Most important is to avoid if you have liver disease. Since alcohol also affects the liver, I would abstain or drink very little alcohol while taking these meds ...Read more

Is it better to reinforce the immunity against the coronavirus to take influenza vaccine?

Is it better to reinforce the immunity against the coronavirus to take influenza vaccine?

No: Coronoviruses and infuenza viruses are two different types of viruses so unfortunately immunity to one type does not give you protection from the other. In fact, there are many different strains of each virus and immunity to one strain only gives limited to no protection for other strains of the same type of virus. Both types of virus attack your respiratory system. ...Read more

I Frequently catch colds, will taking influenza vaccine be beneficial? If so, When and how frequently I should take the vaccine to prevent colds?

I Frequently catch colds, will taking influenza vaccine be beneficial? If so, When and how frequently I should take the vaccine to prevent colds?

May increase colds!: Influenza vaccine is purely to prevent influenza. It not only does nothing to reduce risk of colds but a recent well-conducted placebo-controlled study showed those who got flu vaccine had 4.4 times more non-influenza respiratory infections in the following 9 months! While those who got flu vaccine had slightly lower incidence of flu the diff. was not significant! See http://tinyurl.com/gqhfl95 ...Read more
