Is Excess Dose Of Combiflame Become Death
Too much cetirizine: Too much of any drug could be dangerous but Cetirizine is generally very safe in usual doses. It is not uncommon for allergists to prescribe Cetirizine in higher than recommended doses up to 40 mg per day. This does not mean it is completely safe since sedation is common at this dose. Over-the-counter medications should be used at the recommended doses unless supervised by a physician. ...Read more

Not long: After being declared brain dead, the ventilator is removed, and the heart stops in a matter of minutes. If left on the ventilator, the heart can continue to function. As long as the patient is being provided nutrition, fluids and ICU care, the heart may function for months in a younger patient. Eventually, the lack of endocrine function will cause the body to fail. ...Read more
I was prescribed 50, 000 iu of vitamin d2 for deficiency. Is this safe? I read something about high doses can cause hardening of the organs and death?
Big dose less effect: Many physicians prefer a daily dose of 5, 000-8, 000 iu of vitamin d3. A once weekly dose of 50, 000 iu is safe, but not as helpful due to poor absorption of a single dose of 50, 000 iu. Once 25 hydroxy vitamin d levels reach 60 - 80, the daily dose (5, 000-8, 000 iu) is usually cut in half and the patient followed to ensure the new dose is able to maintain therapeutic vitamin d levels. ...Read more

Can drinking coffee daily cause excessive anxiety and make a person have panic attacks because feeling of death?
Can make worse: I wouldn't say caffeine causes anxiety as much as I would say caffeine can make anxiety worse. Panic attacks are a symptom of extreme anxiety. Caffeine can directly increase anxiety as well as speeding up the heart, which can be, in itself, a trigger for panic attacks. If you suffer from anxiety, I would suggest you should cut down on, or completely eliminate your caffeine intake. ...Read more
If I take on cycle of deca durabolin (steroids) for bodybuilding, is there a risk of death from over dose, if I have one kidney? Or its ok
Glad you're lifting: You don't die of direct toxicity. I've spent time around gyms and i'd encourage you to reconsider your involvement with anabolic steroids. Even if it's legal where you live, many people will consider it cheating, most women prefer a natural bodybuilder, and you're playing russian roulette with your mind. You may do something you'll regret for the rest of your life. Higher dose, greater danger. ...Read more

I was on 5mg of diazepam I've been off completly for 5 days today and been anxious and insomniac. Could this dose withdrawal cause death or seizure?
Mild withdrawal: You can certainly have mild withdrawal symptoms from valium 5mg, if you had been taking it regularly. It's long-acting -- meaning it will take longer to completely eliminate from your body than other, shorter-acting benzos would take. Withdrawal symptoms start later & may last longer too. Seizures & death are not likely from this dose, though. Be safe -- tell your doctor about this. ...Read more
Ihave excessive flatulence. I tried starving myself to death once and ate nothing for a month and still passed gas all day everyday. What is the cause?
Good question but...: Feeling full of "gas" may reflect malabsorption of food (like gluten, lactose), intake of poorly digested food, or choosing foods known to promote gas (beans, fizzy drinks), a stomach emptying too slowly, bacterial overgrowth syndrome, delayed intestinal function, partial obstruction from any cause, infection, rectum problems, and pathology outside the gut. Time for evaluation? ...Read more
Respiratory failure: Too much Aspirin interferes with the last part of your aerobic metabolism of energy, cytochrome c. It uncouples this area and one has to resort to anaerobic metabolism. Severe metabolic acidosis will ensue, the respiratory system will try to compensate but will fail and combined acidosis ensues and lack of energy just will not sustain life. ...Read more
How dangerous is erythromycin? How often can cardiac death occur? I've taken 750 mg 28hrs. I'm scared to take my next dose. I have gastroparaesis.
Is risperdal. 5 mg dose safe for an elder patient with alzheimer's and vascular dementia? I read this drug can cause sudden death in elder patients.
No: According to all studies so far, any antipsychotic used for the purpose of treating behavioral problems or psychosis related to dementia is associated with earlier stroke-related death. This occurs regardless of the antipsychotic and the dose. There are some studies that have shown some antipsychotics to be safer than others (like quetiapine) but those studies are small and inconclusive. ...Read more
What is the Difference? Depo-Medro& a Medrol pack? It's a life&death question. DepoMedrol (methylprednisolone) causes me2have seizures. The dose pack I have had before.
Difficult situation: Lamictal was prescribed for seizures I can presume? It takes a long time to titrate this medication to a level that will cover for this. Steroids of any type should be used with great caution, especially in your situation. The difference is how the solumedrol (methylprednisolone) is administered essentially. Might want to get a second opinion with regard to pain management if you are having trepidation. ...Read more

If I am on a high dose (100mg/day) of vyvanse and have mitral valve prolapse, am I at a great risk of major heart issues/death?
The Mitral Valve:
Prolapse may result in cardiac arrhythmia and unfortunately so can the vyvanase.
Since these are ATRIAL in origin sudden death is very unlikely.
I would suggest you discuss this medication with the prescribing health professional since there may be alternative therapeutic possibilities!
BTW make sure you have Antibiotics when having DENTAL work!
Hope this is helpful!

How long after taking my last dose terbinifine should I wait to drink alcohol? I was told 6 weeks, but this seems excessive.
How is your liver?: The reason to avoid alcohol is because terbinifine is tough on your liver. Has your doctor been monitoring your liver function? Is that why he stopped it? Terbinifine takes weeks to completely clear your system because it is stored in fat cells and slowly released. If your liver tests were abnormal at any point, it's worth the wait. ...Read more
I have hashi's and am on a high T4 dose for my weight. Don't think I've got much thyroid function left. Is it good to leave a dead organ in your body?
Not dead; can heal: I doubt your thyroid is a dead organ. Some of it may be destroyed and it may not be working well due to inflammation, but it can heal and regenerate after your thyroiditis improves. I strongly advise holding onto your organs if at all possible. See http://www. Hopeforhashimotos. Com/dr-alexander-haskell-n-d/index. Html. ...Read more
