My 3 month old has been diagnosed with reflux however the medication isn't helping and still cries in pain for hours should I take her to er?
Acid Reflux: Unfortunately medication may not be able to help. Decreasing acid production will not get rid of reflux and acid reflux may not be the cause of the crying. Many babies have colic and cry for unknown reasons. Some things that may help colic are vibrations, car rides, white noise, etc. But all babies are different. Also look for hair tourniquets.

My dad is 60 years old he had 5 strokes so far and two days ago he had a seizure. What should we do for him? The E.R. did not give him any medication.
Should treat this:
Although seizures are not normally dangerous- these are things to consider:
1. He should not drive (a seizure makes that dangerous)
2. He should use medication to prevent seizures, since he may have another one
