How Long Should Water Intoxication Last
64 oz of H20 or more: On a normal day, without excessive activity or heat, you should drink eight 8oz glasses of water a day (or about 64oz). If you're working out and sweating or it is hot enough to cause you to sweat you should increase your water consumption accordingly. In addition, if you drink significant amounts of caffeine you should increase water intake secondary to caffeine's diuretic effect. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Taste vs safety: I don't believe polyethylene glycol (miralax) gets spoiled and so there is no time limit for it to be in water for use--it is in GoLytely for many months/years. The powder form probably won't taste as pleasant leaving in the water too long--as it is a osmotic agent and this sucks-in water and can thicken a bit over time. Enojy it while it is fresh :-) consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I've hardly drank much water over the last couple years. How long does it take for the body to recoup after you start drinking water again?
Not long: Assuming you haven't damaged your kidneys (which would be unlikely at your age), there should be no lingering damage from not drinking enough water. But drinking water is a very healthy dietary habit. Keep it up! ...Read more

Just for practical reasons, i would recommend drinking the disolved MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) as soon as possible after you prepare it. ...Read more
2-4hours half-life: Ibuprofen has a relatively short half-life (the time it takes for 1/2 to disappear in your body) is only about 2-4 hours. Typically, after 5-6 half-lives, there isn't much left in the body following the last dose. If you are not using it regularly, then it is less of a concern. Say u took 800mg dosage, 8-10 hrs later, maybe. ...Read more

How long after taking my last Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is it safe to drink alcohol? How long after last dose does it stay in your system?
50 hours: The half-life of Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is about 10 hours. A drug should be completely out of your system after 5 half-lives; therefore, Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) should be out of your system within 50 hours or just over a day. Alcohol can interact with Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and cause some unpleasant side effects such including: fast heartbeats, warmth or redness under your skin, tingly feeling, nausea, and vomiting. ...Read more
It depends: With mild dehydration, like after an episode of diarrhea, your body will rehydrate quickly. However, if you continue to lose fluid (from vomiting or diarrhea, for example) it may be hard to get rehydrated quickly. You'll need to first replace the fluid and electrolytes you're losing and then add back the extra that you've lost. ...Read more
