Home Remedies For Withdrawal In Baby
Relief, not cure: Most pink eye in childhood and infancy is due to viral conjunctivitis. You can relieve the symptoms with warm soaks and bland eyedrops to clear out secretions. Sometimes there is bacterial infection - look for swelling, pus, crusting. If these are present see your ophthalmologist. Home remedies can relieve symptoms but not cure the problem. ...Read more
Are there any safe natural home remedies that will help terminate a pregnancy? I'm about 4 weeks along.
No: Fortunately, America is beyond that (that was before modern medicine and before getting rid of laws against inducing miscarriage). Any woman who needs to induce a miscarriage (easier to say abortion), such as if her early fetus has a genetic defect or other significant birth defect, can get help from her Ob-Gyn doctor. The doctor has good reliable ways to do this ("natural" is not in the picture). ...Read more
Home Birth: The warm towels are used to dry and warm the baby after delivery. When babies are delivered they are wet and cold. It is very important to dry and warm them quickly. This is done the same way regardless of wether the baby is delivered at home or in the hospital. After being dried they can either be placed in warm towels or simply placed on mom's chest for body heat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Clear passages: Remedies should aim to help clear mucus. Humidified air to breathe at night, saline nasal washes, a steamy bathroom, and good nose blowing will all help. Avoid otc cold remedies - they can just cause over-drying of the inside of the nose and throat, and irritability. ...Read more

Homeopathy, actually: This is not the same as an "herbal" treatment. But classical homeopathy actually has many medicines ("remedies") that stimulate healing of cough. Different kinds of coughs correspond to different homeopathic remedies, so you'd have the best chance of success by consulting a homeopath. But the remedy rumex can help a tickling, irritated dry cough that gets worse when undressing or uncovering. ...Read more
There aren't any: The over-the-counter product that works best is benzoyl peroxide. None of the home remedies you'll find online (lemon juice, sleeping with your face smeared with honey) will work, and i suspect some of them are cruel pranks on folks with an already-cruel disease. And no rx of any kind words very fast. Please get with a scientific physician. He/she can help. ...Read more
No: There are not proven non-medical remedies (such as homeopathic products, herbal products, foods, or drinks) that are effective for social anxiety in a child. Parents should not feed a child foods that cause symptoms which might increase his anxiety (giving a lactose-intolerant child cheese early during a party can cause stomach aches and gassiness later in the party). Good treatment is behavioral. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there any over-the-counter or home remedies for yeast infections during pregnancy? I'm 13 weeks.
Probably not: There are a lot of "old wives tales tales" about how to take care of this problem & you should not listen to them. Considering your health and the health of your unborn child the best physician to give you the answer to your question is your OB/GYN. ...Read more
Suction: I agree with dr. Roberts - lots of suction with saline to loosen the mucus. Some babies with rsv-induced bronchiolitis will wheeze and some will improve with asthma medicines. Your doctor may recommend that. The copious mucus can be really problematic, though, and getting that loose (with saline, with warm baths, or with a humidifier) and get it out may be the most helpful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Go very, very slowly: Xanax (alprazolam) is extremely addictive and it's half-life very short so you should decrease your dose very, very, very slowly to reduce the likelihood of experiencing withdrawal anxiety. To tide you through the difficult days/weeks ahead, try temporarily supplementing with another anti-anxiety drug (like klonopin) that has a longer half-life so that you don't then keep going into withdrawal. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

There aren't any: In part because there is no true withdrawal syndrome. If people have been using methamphetamine, particularly in high dose binges, there is a "crash" that occurs after several days of use associated with fatigue, excessive sleep and overeating. It is self-limited and goes away after a couple days, followed by increasing craving for meth. Topirimate, a seizure drug, has helped to reduce craving. ...Read more

Not habit forming: Aspirin is not addicting in the classical sense of the concept. It is not a narcotic. It is, however, possible that stopping the medication will allow for pain or inflamation the Aspirin was suppressing to resurface. Other non steroidal anti-inflamatory drugs (nsaid's) are as effective as Aspirin and may be taken less frequently, and with fewer side effects. ...Read more
Supplement estrogen: If you mean as a result of menopause, estrogen replacement therapy would easily control the symptoms as well as providing long term benefits. If you mean PMS symptoms, you could take a lose dose estrogen during that portion of the cycle to minimize your symptoms.

Not sure what u mean: After one day's treatment? That would not cause withdrawal. If steroids are used for more than a couple of weeks, it should always be tapered. Medrol (methylprednisolone) dosepaks are available that actually taper the dose on a very specific schedule, and are often used in people who have to be on a week or 10 days worth of steroids. Talk to whoever was prescribing the Prednisone to you - they can give best advice. ...Read more

Support: Once you detox and are sober, you need to join a support group. Alcoholics anonymous and celebrate recovery are two excellent organizations that help people deal with alcohol addiction.

What is the recommended dose of Valium per day for severe alcohol withdrawal? And how long should this treatment last usually?
Detox from alcohol: I think there are other drugs used for alcohol withdrawal. The benzos, especially valium is considered to be just another pill form of alcohol and are not a good fit for someone trying to get sober. I would hope you are in a medical setting and not attempting this at home. ...Read more

What's the best home remedies for heroin withdrawals?I last used today&I've been using everyday. How long until I'm clean?
You must be joking: There ARE no "home remedies" & I'm sure you already know that. Why did you start using in the first place? Why didn't you just try a "home remedy" INSTEAD of heroin? There's no "home remedy" substitute for heroin & there's no "home remedy" for heroin withdrawal. Maybe withdrawal would discourage you from using again. If not, seek professional help. Go to a nearby ER. ...Read more
