Sertraline upped from 50mg (6 weeks) to 100mg (now at 5th week on this dose) and now I am getting explosive watery diareaha. Worried as hell, normal?

Sertraline upped from 50mg (6 weeks) to 100mg (now at 5th week on this dose) and now I am getting explosive watery diareaha. Worried as hell, normal?

Sertraline s/e?: Diarrhea is a side effect of sertraline. Not clear if you've had diarrhea since increasing dose to 100 mg. That said, contact prescribing doctor to review and consider lowering dose to rule out med as cause. Also, see your pcp right away or go to urgent care for exam and treatment as there may be other medical factors contributing to or causing your diarrhea. I hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Depends: You behavior is not normal. The effects you suffered from alcohol are expected, hence normal. Alcohol never did anybody any good and you should stay away from it. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Why my chest feels like I need to puke but I cant. And also im havibg diareaha. Is not dribking water for 9 hours is the reason?

More likely: The diarrhea and nausea are causing dehydration which then makes you feel worse. The sensation many people get when you feel like you are going to vomit does involve the upper abdomen and chest. Most important is to try to get some fluids/water into you now. Actually retching or "dry heaving" can also be a sign of acid reflux or anxiety. Hope you start to feel better soon:) ...Read more

Constant diareaha. Doctor done a lot of stool, blood, urine samples, +viewed both my stomack and colon with a tube. What does a funcional problem mean?

= A Dx of exclusion: When a GI problem is labelled "functional" it means inflammation, infection, & ischemic pathology, as well as motility disorders have been ruled out. Ruled in are conditions that alter how the gut "senses" pain, distension, & the movement of food or residue. The good news then is that there's no bad news, allowing the symptoms you describe to be addressed without concern for missing a bad problem. ...Read more

My daughter 50 days old sleeps only 9-10 a day (day+night). Around 5-6 hours at & remaining during the day. Is it normal?

Possible: Sleep patterns vary but sometimes can be regulated by behavior therapy. Consider scheduled quiet "nap" times and keep room calm and lightly lit. Have calming background noise - music with no words - that only plays during these times to help her learn it's rest time. At night goal is 10 hours. Avoid responding to quickly to crying. Give her a few minutes to see if she will settle on her own. ...Read more

Get hearing checked: It is possible that your daughter has a hearing loss. If possible, ask your paediatrician to arrange a hearing test as a reassurance, as often the behaviours you describe are the first things parents notice in a child with hearing problems. Early identification of a hearing problem can be important for a child's future development. See http://www. Kidshealth. Org. Nz/hearing-and-communication ...Read more

Sure: You are still growing, and your appetite may vary. The kinds of foods you are eating may also cause your appetite to vary a bit. If you are eating high protein foods and fruits and veggies, you may find you are less hungry than if you are eating junky foods that are high in sugar. Your exercise will also play into your hunger as well. ...Read more

Several things maybe: I'm sure you've already gone or are contemplating going to your doctor for a thorough checkup because that's what you need right now.

Probably not: Minor menstrual irregularities occur with some frequency and can be secondary to multiple different underlying reasons. Would retest yourself with urine test strips in 7-10 days after a time in which you might have been impregnated. If your cycles continue normally you should be fine. Best wishes. ...Read more

Check a test: If your period is abnormal and you have been having unprotected intercourse, start by doing a pregnancy test and, if it is negative, repeat it in 3-5 weeks. It could be that it was light due to stress, medications, or illnesses but it could also be some of the normal variation from cycle to cycle. Hope this is some help. ...Read more

No: This is what we would call breakthrough bleeding. It is common but not normal. Most often it's due to swings or fluctuations in hormones. At 39 years of age you should see a gynecologist for evaluation. It's possible that he or she will want to perform a biopsy to make sure there are no precancer cells as the cause for this a regular bleeding good luck! ...Read more
