If you take ibruprofen for migraines and are sick an hour later will they still work? If not how long do you have to try and not be sick.

Hmm: I would take Ibuprofen every 4 hours as needed. Taking it sooner is dangerous and could increase side effects. Consider alternating with Acetaminophen/Tylenol instead. If still having worsening headache perhaps a face to face visit will bring more answers. Good luck ...Read more

What do you suggest if i would like to go off my anti psychotics and take herbal antipsychotics. How many days will it take to finaly sleep after going off?

Please don't do this: There is no such thing as "herbal antipsychotic." It won't work and potentially very dangerous (not studied by anyone so could be unsafe). There is high chance you will get very sick off your medication. If you are having problems or side effects from your antipsychotic, tell your doctor because there are many antipsychotics out there tha can make you feel better. ...Read more

I  have a hyperthyroid and I am taking methimazole - will this medication make you depressed?

If so what else can you do?

Hyperthyroidism: It is unlikely that your med to treat your overactive thyroid is making you depressed.

What happens if you take antidepresants and you don't need it?

Side effects: The decision to discontinue an antidepressant should be made in consultation with your physician taking into account how your life is going and especially what new skills you may have learned during a difficult time in an unfair world. You may never have needed them or they may have helped some. Today's ssrsi's will slow a man down sexually but serious side effects are uncommon. ...Read more

Do you think it is ok to take prescription painkillers if your doctor will not per scribe them to you?

Do you think it is ok to take prescription painkillers if your doctor will not per scribe them to you?

NO: Narcotics are controlled substances. The main reason is individual and public safety. These medications should only be taken under the direction of a physician. When you buy drugs off the street, the concern of the dealer is to make money and not your safety with resulting risk of overdosing and death. You may also be introduced to other illegal drugs of no medicinal value such Cocaine and heroin. ...Read more

Hello, : Hello, it doesn't necessarily mean that you would die, but age parameters are there for a reason. It is always worrisome when girls your age begin taking diet pills because they are not happy with their appearance. It would be far healthier to work with a nutritionist to see where you fall on the charts (looking at your height, weight and body type). A nutritionist could help you to develop a healthy plan to maintain a healthy weight. ...Read more

They will eval.: Yes. If you see a physician, he or she will ask you questions to determine if anti-depressants are appropriate.

I take thyroid medication with food and I feel better then when I take it on an empty stomach. Is this ok to continue to do as long as I feel good?

Empty stomach: Synthroid (thyroxine) should be taken on an empty stomach as this would increase absorption. However, I have pts that take it with food. My recommendation is to get TSH levels checked more frequently. You should avoid taking it with walnuts and high-fiber foods. ...Read more
