Normal: It's completely normal to have some disparity in the growth measurements, almost no pregnancy has 'perfect' accordance with the measurements. At your gestation, measurements would have to be more than 2 weeks disparity in order to be concerned, 1 week is definitely within standard deviation of error of the technology of the ultrasound, even. No worries! ...Read more

Which tablets are weakest to strongest between tramadol 50mg, co-codamol 30-500mg & paracetamol 500mg with dihydrocodeine 30mg?

Which tablets are weakest to strongest between tramadol 50mg, co-codamol 30-500mg & paracetamol 500mg with dihydrocodeine 30mg?

Easy for last 2: the last 2 drugs are essentially identical. In theory 50 mg of Tramadol is about equivalent to 30 mg of codeine. The concept of "stronger" is really not an easy one. Medications are metabolized differently by different people and what is an equivalent dose for one person may not be for another. In addition, codeine tends to have more side effects. Talk to your doctor/pharmacist. ...Read more

Which is more effective  and common treatment for internal hemorrhoids inflammation: canasa 1000 mg suppository or anusol hc 2.5% cream. Thanks.

Canasa/Anusol: To treat internal hemorrhoid, i would recommend Anusol Hc 2.5% cream instead of canasa. Canasa enema is used to treat inflammation on the left side of the colon in ulcerative colitis. Suggest high fiber diet with diet supplement (goal of 25-30 grams per day), adequate hydration, avoid straining, avoid soap at anal area. If all failed, hemorrhoidal banding or other modalities. ...Read more

Check your product: The standard diphenhydramine(benedryl) elixir is 12.5 mg/5ml while the suspension is 25mg/5ml. If you have a 125/5 it would be far too much to give at that weight.If it were the 12.5/5 it would be ok.Available syrup or elixir contain 5-5.6% alcohol. ...Read more
