How Often Can You Take Ketrax
Very short time: Levamisole would be gone in a couple of days, but if you are using Cocaine regularly that is cut with levamisole it can cause a great deal of damage, both reducing the number of white blood cells, causing infections (esp severe mouth sores) and can cause an inflammatory disorder which can cause damage to skin (esp ears, nose cartilage) and even vital organs (vasculitis). ...Read more
NO!!!!: What are you taking levamisole for? It is no longer used in human health, and was taken off the market because of its dangers. Levamisole has recently shown up as a cutting agent in cocaine, and has resulted in many cases of dangerously low white blood cell counts, serious infections, and can cause an inflammation of small blood vessels which can have serious effects on health and life itself. ...Read more
Worm medicine: Levamisole was used to treat certain helminthic (worm) diseases in humans, but was pulled from the human medicine market because of serious side effects, and now is rarely used even in veterinary practice because of the same kinds of side effects - very low white counts, severe and serious infections and inflammatory/autoimmune disorders. It is being used to "cut" cocaine for unknown reasons. ...Read more
I have vitiligo patches on my lip and palms. (hereditary from maternal grand father) please suggest any good medication. Taking levamisole 100 mg daily.
Add corticosteroids: Given your genetic history, it is often important to know the underlying genetic alteration as it helps determine treatment effectiveness. Immune system modifers like levamisole have shown to be very effective. There are studies which show even more improvement with either topical corticosteroids or oral corticosteroids in addition to the levamisole. Also avoid proton pump inhibitors. ...Read more
Safety: Safe is as few injections as you need to get relief. However if you need these injections regularly, safe is a relative term but typically around 3-4 injections/year. Some patients can have as many as 3 injections per 6 months however that is not a good idea for too long. ...Read more
Depends on kidneys: Mag citrate has 2 benefits: treats constipation and prevents kidney stone formation. However, if you take mag citrate chronically, you need to check with your doctor because build up of magnesium in the blood could cause heart rhythm abnormality that is occasionally fatal (ventricular tachycardia). Kidney weakness decreases magnesium excretion and builds it up in the blood. ...Read more
Every 4 -6 hours: The usual dose of Atarax is 25 mg every 6 hours.

The generic name of Atarax is hydroxyzine, which is also available as vistaril. ...Read more

Metoprolol?: I think you mean metoprolol. I use chronotherapy as part of my practice. If you look at bad events like stroke or heart attack, they happen most between 4am and 8am. If you take medicine at 7am its effect occurs at 11 am or so and wanes by about 4 am. So for certain meds without water pill, I tell my patients to take them at night so peak effect is when it is most needed, even long acting. ...Read more
Save your money: The minimum daily requirements for vitamins are set quite high to allow for individual variation. A few people have kinks in the vitamin E or folate or biotin metabolism and need to take large doses; not so for vitamin c. Anything like a reasonable diet with a modest amount of citrus fruit, or a dirt-cheap daily multiple vitamin, guarantees you'll have enough vitamin c. ...Read more
Constipation: First, if you've not had a colonoscopy, it's time to consider it given your age. I recommend increasing fluid intake to no less than 2 quarts a day. Fiber such as metamucil or citrucel with a glass of water should be helpful. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) once daily can do it. If those measure don't work, it would be time to see a doc. ...Read more
