I had a one time toradol IM shot today for rib pain. How long does this last? Any side effects I should watch for? When can I start taking Aleve/Advil

A few hours: Toradol can relieve pain for several hours (>6-8 hours on an average). You can either start taking alternate pain medicine if they have been effective in relieving your pain before or wait until you have return of your pain that needs relief and then start taking your pain pills as per your doctor's advice. ...Read more

Can I take solodyn, Advil or tylenol, (acetaminophen) and multivitamins together? What are the potential drug interactions? Side effects? Thanks.

Can I take solodyn, Advil or tylenol, (acetaminophen) and multivitamins together? What are the potential drug interactions? Side effects? Thanks.

Not at same time: Solodyn (minocycline) has many interactions; taking with calcium (usually found in multivits) can reduce absorption- they should be taken at least 2 hours apart. Solodyn (minocycline) kills our friendly intestinal flora which can lead to yeast overgrowth ; a wide range of side effects. It's wise to take probiotics ; not use it very long. Topical antibiotics ok. Regular Ibuprofen use can cause ulcers ; GI bleeds. See comment:. ...Read more

Does water enemas have any side effects on infants?

Does water enemas have any side effects on infants?

Potentially - yes: Water alone injected as an enema can be absorbed by the baby and dilute the balance of the blood. If enough water is absorbed, the baby can have seizures when this balance crosses a critical level. Small amounts (ounce or two) are unlikely to cause a problem, but I never recommend them. ...Read more

Do to a fall, my 6 week old infant needed a cat scan. What are the side effects of a scan at such a young age? The dr said cancer but how soon?

We're exposed to unavoidable natural radiation every day, and compared to this, the dose you get from a worthwhile ct scan is trivial. I'm glad junior is okay and has a parent who care so much. ...Read more

Because of smaller body surface area, children can get "stoned" by much lower amts. Of mj than adults. Being in an altered state impairs infant development.
