Discuss w/ doctor: Prozac and Ventolin can be risky - same w/ Zoloft but Paxil (paroxetine) seems less so. Talk to your doctor and seek CBT to optimize your treatment - you need skills to manage your attacks and it will reduce need for meds.

I'm going out tonight to celebrate a birthday and I was given diflucan (fluconazole) how long after drinking can I take the pill? Or is it ok to mix alcohol with it
Do not drink: Diflucan (fluconazole) is a powerful drug with potential side effects which can be worse if you drink. Side effects include nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. These will worsen with alcohol. Since Diflucan (fluconazole) stays in the system for about a week, the best option is to avoid alcohol for a week after taking Diflucan (fluconazole).

Dr Lupo I was in the hospital for a week on vancomycin with MRSA on my labia. how long does it take to not be tired & to feel better?thank you
Recovery time: I usually tell patients that it depends 'how sick' you were in the beginning to predict 'how long' it will take you to recover. So if you were really, really sick -hospitalized etc, then it will take perhaps longer than you think to recover. Think of it as going up and over the mountain -you still have to make it all the way down after that awful experience. Hang in there. If doubts, see your doc. ...Read more

TAPER: Prednisone doesn't stay in the body that long; however it can suppress the normal function of your adrenal glands, especially if given for a prolonged period. A 7 day course of prednisone isn't usually attributed with adrenal surpression. As long as you follow the directions given by your physician, you should be ok. Call your prescribing MD if you have concerns. ...Read more
