Is there any specific period to take general medications? E.g., my doc usually prescribes medicines for 3,5,7,10,20, etc. days. Is this a must follow?
Symptoms or specific: I classify meds in two types. Specific meds like a course of antibiotics are time sensitive. Meaning the time needed to kill off the germ is what is given & you should do so unless you are okay with it failing. Symptomatic meds are those for symptoms like pain. You take them when and if you need them for as long as you need them. There may be extra left over so you don't have to call for refills. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Blood/GI tests/none: The screening test for celiac is done with blood & finds antibodies to your gut tissues. This must be done while you are on gluten to be accurate. If blood is positive a sample of intestinal tissue confirms it. There is no "med" for celiac disease. Any time CD patients eat gluten their body makes new destructive antibodies that attack the gut. ...Read more
What medications for depression /anxiety don't make you drowsy. I have tried a lot but the make me feel sick and tired. Its been hard finding one that I can follow through.?
Several: It would be great to know what meds you take in order to better understand the situation. First of all, you should be talking with the doctor who prescribed your medication about your concern. Secondly, depression & anxiety are very different things. I treat major depression first, then the anxiety. Finally, wellbutrin is a non-sedating antidepressant and Buspar (buspirone) is minimally sedating for anxiety. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it safe to follow the Atkins diet if you are taking a lot of medications? No meds are for diabetes and I am not a diabetic, not hypoglycemic either.
I had a cardiac catherization 10 years ago to see the size of my patent ductus artereosis. It was very small so it was left as is. My cardiologist had no concern and I was never prescribed any medications. I had no other follow up after that. Now, I am 27
Likely all ok: a small PDA present at age 17 is likely going to remain small and unobtrusive for life. If concerned about it, a good cardiac exam with the stethoscope, an electrocardiogram (electrical tracing of the heart) and an echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) can give you the assurance that you need. Much of that might be overkill, however. I suspect you are just fine. ...Read moreSee 7 more doctor answers
I had iufd at 28th week in my first pregnancy april 2012. Other than medication, should I follow bed rest for next time that im planning soon?
Not required.: Iufd at 28 weeks is rare and I am very sorry for your loss. The risk of recurrence depends on the specific cause - if any was determined in your case. Aspirin 80-81 mg may help, as will Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily preconceptionally and throughout pregnancy next time. Strict bedrest is not required in general and could increase your risk for dangerous clots in your veins. Seek maternal-fetal medicine! ...Read more
