Hard to know: Without smelling it, impossible to say. Urine odor is often dependent upon what you have eaten. Ever smell urine after eating asparagus? It probably means nothing at all but if it continues to worry you, go see your family doctor and get examined. ...Read more

I'm taking no medications. I need to loose weight. Is green coffee bean extract good for you?

Fad diets dangerous: This fad diet is not safe or effective and I would advise you to stop the insanity. This is one more fad diets that looks 'clinical'
but is designed to make some people rich and to keep it's clients obese.

That much caffeine is well known to cause diarrhea and other GI upset.

You will return to normal when you stop this product.

I take many medications for many things right now. I've struggled with constipation. Recently my stool was dark green and runny. What should I do?

Rapid transit time: Bile is green in color and is a component of your stool. As it moves thru the gut it turns brown due to the action of intestinal bacteria on the bile. Green stool indicates that food has passed thru your intestines faster than usual and the stool hasn't had a chance to turn brown. For the various causes of this go to > http://abt.

How can I keep from getting totally constipated from medications. I drink tons of water. And I'm on a low oxalate diet. So greens veggies are out?

Fiber!: You are right to drink plenty of water. You also need plenty of fiber. You can get this from whole grain breads and cereals, and fresh fruit. If this doesn't help, try adding MiraLax (polyethylene glycol) every day or 2. Good luck! ...Read more

Not a good idea: Green tea inhibits platelet aggregation & adhesion; the combination with Plavix (clopidogrel) may increase the risk of bleeding. Ask your doc if a lower dose of Plavix (clopidogrel) might be sage with green tea. Or choose a tea without anticoagulant effects. ...Read more

I have been having a cough for the more than a month at first I thought it was just a regular cold I have tried Nyquil, and other over the counter medications nothing has helped I now get a blood taste when I cough sometimes with green mucus.

I have been having a cough for the more than a month at first I thought it was just a regular cold I have tried Nyquil, and other over the counter medications nothing has helped I now get a blood taste when I cough sometimes with green mucus.

Allergic cough??: You don't mention any fever or production of a lot of mucus or people nearby you (family, coworkers) being ill. That makes me think you might have a cough brought on by a post-nasal drip irritating the back of your throat and making you have a dry hacking, non-productive cough. If you have thickly feeling just a second or so before cough easily treated without antibiotics. (Benzonatate 200 q8h) ...Read more

Honestly: Honestly the only way to know if there was a mistake is to call or present to the pharmacy that gave you the medication. Please know that the medication could very well be the same, different pharmaceutical companies may manufacture the same drug, however there may be changes in color and size, especially if it is the generic form. Also if it is generic, there may be different preservatives or additives used which could be causing you to feel "strange" you can request to have the original pill given to you due to adverse side effects.
Take care. ...Read more

I have criss cross veins up and down my arms, they come & go. Esp at night. I'm on 3 medications, dark green veins). Dr says I'm good but I don't know?

Probably normal.: Veins can enlarge and shrink for many reasons most commonly levels of hydration, genetics, aging, sun exposure, temperature changes and even skin color being more prominent in fair skinned people. Most commonly what you are experiencing is a normal variation but you probably should see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation so that they could examine you and answer all of your questions. ...Read more

My son takes concerta for ADHD but loves to drink green tea. Will the tea cleanse his system of the medication?

My son takes concerta for ADHD but loves to drink green tea. Will the tea cleanse his system of the medication?

Unlikely: Concerta is broken down by the liver and disposed of by the kidney. Green tea is not known to significantly effect cyp450)which is what breaks down Concerta in the liver) so it shouldn't break down faster. Green tea can increase urine output but probably not enough to speed up the disposal of concerta, since only a very small amount is disposed of before being broken down. ...Read more

Bile!: Green in stool tends to be bile, the product of the gallbladder. It's secreted all the time but mostly reabsorbed in the colon. You're not reabsorbing right now. Unclear why, but I would not be surprised if your IBS is playing a role. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

I have this green discharge from urethra I went to doctor medication but still the I have no pain only swelling and when I squeeze it that where it co?

Infection? STD?: There has been little or no research on urethral discharge in women. In men, almost all cases are STDs (e.g. chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomonas). Obviously this depends on your and/or a sex partner's risk for STD. A non-STD urinary tract infection might be possible, but unlikely without painful, urgent or frequent urination. What did your doctor say? Were you tested for these STDs and UTI? ...Read more

I have Little Black Bugs on my hair. I have tried for medication for lice and it did not work. Now I am trying Green Bug for fleas, bed bugs, mites an?

Little bugs.: This can be very frustration, and I certainly feel for your distress. Have you tried prescription medication and have you seen your physician? If you manage to find one or many of these insects, please capture them put them in a bag and deliver them to your physician.
Identifying the organism can offer more targeted treatment options. I hope this helps and good luck. ...Read more

It's your money: Evidence-based medicine works out of a dysfunctional system but is based on real science and tells you accurately what is going on. Green coffee was promoted for weight loss by a naturopath on dr. Oz based on a tiny unreplicated study by the pill-maker itself in a junk journal. Go ahead if you want, and think also about what you owe yourself -- find a fitness activity that you really enjoy. ...Read more

Green vaginal discharge, no odor, no std, tried several medications to treat BV but still have light green discharge? I've had it for a few years now : (

Probabely normal: If you have been tested for std, trichomonas, bacterial infection, yeast infection and it has no odor and no responce to treatment. I will suggest don't take anything and hope it is normal for you. But if it changes in smell character get all the tests done again, as some infection might have been missed for some reason in initial exam and testing. ...Read more

I bought green coffee premium 1 yr ago, is it expired now? And what is the side effects of using such drug?

I bought green coffee premium 1 yr ago, is it expired now? And what is the side effects of using such drug?

Caffeine effects: You should be able to find an expiration date somewhere on the bottle but I expect it is still good and safe to use even if a bit past the "expiration date" (which is generally not that accurate). The only side effect might be getting a bit hyper from the caffeine but it only has as much caffeine as 1/5 cup of coffee. See
