How long should I run every day (minimum miles) to see positive effects in general?

Do I have to take My perscription for Mono-Linyah at the same time every day? Or does it matter as long as I take it daily?

Do I have to take My perscription for Mono-Linyah at the same time every day? Or does it matter as long as I take it daily?

Same time each day: Mono-Linyah is a combination (2 ingredient) birth control pill, and should be taken at the same time each day. Taking it at "the same time" means plus or minus a couple of hours. In reality, with combination pills, taking a pill many hours late may not noticeably increase the chance of pregnancy that month (taking a pill late is more risky if using progestin-only (1 ingredient) pills). ...Read more

I give 7w baby 4oz formula on demand every 3-4 hours and at longer stretches during the night. Usually 24oz per day. Is that too little?

I give 7w baby 4oz formula on demand every 3-4 hours and at longer stretches during the night. Usually 24oz per day. Is that too little?

Dr. Can check at 3mo: A young baby makes his own schedule and will fuss or cry if still hungry. Healthy babies are fed "ad lib", which means we let the baby decide how much to drink. (Usually, after 3 months of age a normal baby can be allowed to go 6-7 hours at night without feeding or other parental interaction.) The pediatrician can check the baby's growth at the 2 month check up next week, to make sure it's normal. ...Read more

I'm 26.Decided that I want to strech every day to try and do splits. How long does it usually take? Any precautions? What strech routine is recommended?

I'm 26.Decided that I want to strech every day to try and do splits. How long does it usually take? Any precautions? What strech routine is recommended?

Variable: The time it takes to do the splits is highly variable and depends on how tight your muscles are at onset. It also depends on which type of split- straddle/ split leg. The important thing is to take it slow and easy to avoid injury. Perform stretches that mimic the position you are trying to achieve. Hold the position for 20-30 seconds- don't force. Keep repeating. It will gradually get easier. ...Read more

My 2 month old son eats 4-5oz of formula every 2 hours during the day. When should he start eating more or how long should be keep eating this amount?

My 2 month old son eats 4-5oz of formula every 2 hours during the day. When should he start eating more or how long should be keep eating this amount?

Depends on age & wt: Most infants will tend to increase their intake over the first few weeks and then level off between 28-35 oz/ 24 hours until they weigh about 15 pounds, and then additional intake is needed. For most babies, this is usually around 4-6 months, so solids are added then. Some 2 month old infants will take 7 oz x 5 bottles a day, others 4 oz x 8/ day. If your baby is happy and growing, no worry. ...Read more

Dinner at 11 pm, and then fasting all the way till 11 pm next day again. I have been doing it for the past 6 months continuesly. Lost 50 pounds within that. Why I don't have appetite for as long as 24 hours every day. I just have 8ounces of water?

Unhealthy: I don't recommend going that long between meals. I recommend a checkup by your physician to make sure there are no medical abnormalities to explain your poor appetite and weight loss. If nothing abnormal is found, try to eat several small feedings throughout the day and early evening. Prolonged fasting can lead to metabolic abnormalities that cause anorexia. ...Read more

Is a five hour energy every day bad for you in the long run?

Is a five hour energy every day bad for you in the long run?

I would say so: For the most part; any of these "attention getting" products are not very good {short or long term} for you as they usually contain an extreme amount of sugar. If you find yourself having 'energy' problems make sure you start out the day with a healthy breakfast, drink plenty of water, and take a vitamin b complex supplement of your diet is poor. ...Read more

How long do it take to see results when taking crestor 10mg every day?

How long do it take to see results when taking crestor 10mg every day?

Right away, but...: The medication starts working right away, but it takes time for benefits to reach a level that one can detect on blood tests. Maybe 2-4 weeks after starting the drug, lab results will show better numbers. However, doctors usually wait 3 months before testing, to let the drug and one's body have time to reach a new balance and hit a steady level of improved cholesterol numbers. ...Read more

I'm tired every day no matter how long I sleep. Why is this? Should I be worried?

I'm tired every day no matter how long I sleep. Why is this? Should I be worried?

Fatigue: I would think of four things to check/consider: poor sleep quality (do you snore, move legs during sleep?), anemia, low thyroid function, and depression. Usually one of these is behind daytime fatigue. Simple blood tests can help rule in or out thyroid and anemia. See your PCP to start with these! ...Read more

How long does it take for wrinkles to develop? Like if you frowned every second of the day or something

Varies: Your face won't "freeze that way." it is a combination of your genetics, your skin structure, sun exposure, smoke exposure (usually tobacco), other toxin exposure, moisture level, and time. Check w/older family members for likely time frame. Care for your skin starting when young (18 works) to put off / prevent unwanted changes. ...Read more

Would 5 days be long enough for 8mg of Suboxone to be out of a person urine if used every day for two weeks?

Would 5 days be long enough for 8mg of Suboxone to be out of a person urine if used every day for two weeks?

No: The opiate will be in your system for longer than 5 days, even at this relatively low dose. More importantly, there is a reason you wisely chose to take suboxone and you may want to consider a moderate taper: 8 mg, 4 mg, 2 mg. I would speak with your provider about this option. ...Read more

May take time.: If you mean progress like more energy, it can take 6 weeks since you may feel sore from workouts.
Progress as weight loss depends on calories in and calories burned. So eating healthy foods but too many will not see progress.
Progress as cholesterol and other blood work may take 12 weeks.

What is long term damage from taking 2-4 Excedrin pills a day every 6 hours? I understand I should probably see a dr about the headaches. Thx

Stomach ulcers: First you need to determine what type of headaches that you might be experiencing. To continue to use excedrin on a daily schedule, may lead to many other problems. Excedrin contains aspirin/nsaid, which in turn can cause peptic ulcers in addition to making our platelets less functional for a period of time. This can lead to bleeding abnormalities. ...Read more

I get feverish every time I return from a long bus or train journey and the fever usually lasts for a day or two. What does this symptom suggest?

Inflammation: Feeling feverish after a long trip does not necessarily indicate an infection but most likely an inflammatory condition or possibly an allergic condition and so I would verify your temperature with a thermometer and look for any other signs of respiratory problems such as cough source of breath wheezing ...Read more

I've been taking camrese for about five months for about 3 weeks I have been bleeding and spotting every day. So how much longer should this last?

Unusual: If you have been taking this birth control pill for 5 months without a problem, and now suddenly have bleeding for 3 weeks straight, then the possibilities include:
1. Normal side effect of the pill related to extreme thinning and fragility of the uterine lining
2. Pregnancy - check a test
3. The presence of something like a uterine polyp

this is a great discussion to have with your doctor. ...Read more

How long does suboxin stay in your system I took a quarter one every day so that would be 2mg for the past 2 weeks im gonna b takimg a dipstick test?

Buprenorphine: Hard to say. .. Buprenorphine has a variable half life of 20-44 hours with an average wash out period of 5x the half life. .. So unfortunately there's no definitive way to say for sure. If the Suboxone was prescribed, this shouldn't be a problem though. Hope that helps! ...Read more
