To get six packs easily in a month can I use any medicines or syringe's. Is the way good or any side effects to heart or health.

May be: I don't know what you mean by syringes but if you are talking about steroids, gh, testosterone im, stay away from it. 30 days six pack for a regular working person with a full time job is very hard. Depend on what are we starting with. Full six pack with a regular belly not possible. But if you have strong muscle and want to define them, then is possible. Cardio in am, weight pm with abs. ...Read more

What asthma medicine can I take without heart rate side effects?

What asthma medicine can I take without heart rate side effects?

Controllers: Controller medications in general do not make the heart rate increase as much as bronchodilators like albuterol, pirbuterol, salmeterol and formoterol. Inhaled steroids only make the heart rate increase rarely. Singulair (montelukast) and its cousins, Accolate and zyflo also do not tend to have this side effect. Mast cell stabilitzers like intal, tilade, don't either, but no longer available, sadly. ...Read more

What are some of the "immediate" or "soon-coming"  side effects associated with anorexia? How does it affects your heart/breathing?

Anorexia: It depends. If you are throwing up and using diuretics you could have electrolyte abnormalities that can also cause your heart to stop or pound. Just starving yourself causes your heart to race and both can cause shortness of breath. Either way it can cause death and or irreparable damage to your body and heart. ...Read more

I am really scared of taking the dexamethasone suppression test. What will my EXACT possible side effects be? Is my heart going to race? :-(

No side effects: There are no side effects from a dexamethasone suppression test. Your heart will not race. It's harmless. The dose used (1 mg) is too small for you to feel anything, but large enough to produce a change in your cortisol level which can only be detected by a sensitive blood test. ...Read more

I have been on amiodrone months. I heart shocked over 30 days ago & my afib is gone. I want to stop taking amiodrone due to side effects.

I have been on amiodrone  months.  I heart shocked over 30 days ago & my afib is gone.  I want to stop taking amiodrone due to side effects.

Unfortunately it: doesn't work like that. The clinical situation can dictate whether your afib was situational (recent open heart surgery?) or due to other cause. You have about a 30% chance of staying in rhythm without the amiodarone so odds are you will be back in afib in about 3 months if you stop it now. Other medications and procedures could be used to help you stay in rhythm. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

I wore the patch for about 5 hours I guess and have to take off due to side effects. How long afterwards will I have them? My heart is pounding

Side effects: what type of patch?? nicotine patch? - pain patch or birth control patch? - generally side effects from the patch begin to subside immediately as you have removed the source of medication from your body. It may take up to 12 hours for the effects to wear off. I would recommend drinking plenty of fluids and washing the area of the patch. ...Read more

I.M a trainner and i train a lot i don't take any kind of supplements just i take l carnitin liquid. What is the side effects, ?.Its safe for the heart

No side effects: I train 5 times a week. Trainer in the past. Drink a lotof water. Your body produce enough carnitine from your nutrition( red meat, fish, poultry and milk). Play a critical role for energy production at mitochondrial level. I have not seen scientific evidence proven extra carnitine, directly or indirectly, support increase muscle mass. Use acetyl l carnitine if you still want to use it. ...Read more
