Is it safe to take alvedon 500 mg with arthritis in both your arms and legs?

Is it safe to take alvedon 500 mg with arthritis in both your arms and legs?

Arthritis: Alvedon is acetaminophen, also referred to as apap, or in my part of the world better known as tylenol. While it's generally considered safe and is widely used without problem, safety is always a relative consideration and any medicine has potential side/adverse effects, so always best to check with your doctor if you're not sure. As to arthritis, consider other meds & non-med treatment as well. ...Read more

Is taking celebrex (celecoxib) 200mg every day harmful to the heart or blood pressure? I have severe osteoarthritis in the knees that the pills really help. .

Is taking celebrex (celecoxib) 200mg every day harmful to the heart or blood pressure? I have severe osteoarthritis in the knees that the pills really help.
.

Possibly: Celebrex (celecoxib) can raise bp by causing sodium retention in the kidney and increase chance of heart attacks by increasing platelet reactivity. If one has risk factors for heart disease then taking celebrex (celecoxib) should be with great caution. Advise a thorough cardiac evaluation. ...Read more

Ok to take meds: There is no really problem taking those meds as long as you need them. If the medical problem resolves or significantly improves, your doctor may feel you can stop them. If you are tolerating them now with minimal side effects then there really is no compelling reason to say stop taking them. Damaged caused by long term use is very unlikely. Always talk to your doc before stopping meds ...Read more

I feel pain in my shoulders,back,legs and feet and often get a muscle pull,I am taking wilgesic tablet and it releives symptoms temporarily......what should be done?would it be helpful to take mineral supplements?

I feel pain in my shoulders,back,legs and feet and often get a muscle pull,I am taking wilgesic tablet and it releives symptoms temporarily......what should be done?would it be helpful to take mineral supplements?

Worth trying: .. especially those supplements with high concentration of electrolytes (potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium), which tend to trigger muscle pulls if their levels are low. If you are active, like an athlete, sweating and the resulting fluid loss is #1 cause of muscle cramps. You need to hydrate!! If recurrent pulls occur in odd places, visit the nearest healthcare professional for attention! ...Read more

For swelling of eyes and lips ( allergy), which tablet is good to take?  Quite of ten, I used to have it. How can I control?

Evaluation: I would see an allergist to determine the reason for your reactions. Over the counter antihistamines can also help if your reactions are mild. Ask your pharmacist to help you with generics and name brands. ...Read more

Its been brought to my attn that its bad to take both methylphenidate and phenylalanine. Is it safe for me to be taking these medications together?

Its been brought to my attn that its bad to take both methylphenidate and phenylalanine.  Is it safe for me to be taking these medications together?

May be wrong med: Methylphenidate is a stimulant medication used to treat adhd and phenylalanine is an Amino Acid and is not a medication. Some people have problems with that Amino Acid because of a genetic disorder called pku but for most people it is not an issue. It would be unusual to have a stand alone Amino Acid supplement like that but it would not be problem. If that is not what you meant ask again. ...Read more

Can I take naproxen 250mg with tramadol 50mg as I have ran out of ibuprofen 500mg and the pain in ankle is 10/10 pain also taking prednisolone 5mg x8 time in the morning will that have any affect?

Nsaids: Naprosyn (naproxen) and Ibuprofen are both NSAIDS, so you can not take both, but you may take naprosyn (naproxen) as instructed to instead of the Ibuprofen,..BUT note, it is important for continuity of care and good pt/Dr relations to inform your treating Doctor of the medications you are taking so they can be properly documented and that allows the Doctor to know how you are and stay in tuned with your case. ...Read more

StartW/Massage&Heat: Fibromyalgia is a rather broad term that includes so-called"myofascial pain syndrome"and a few other cute monikers.The bottom line is that there is no one sure-fire way to beat it and whatever is tried will take time and must be individualized for you.It may take some trial and error.Those drugs are only part of it. Physical therapy,massage therapy,proper posture, stress reduction and sleep habits ...Read more

I might have ankylosong spondylitis. Got some meds due to neck pain containing nsaid and prednisolone. Is it okay to take these in a.S patient?!

I would avoid steroi: ...Ds. Long term steroid use @ ur age can b devastating ; 2 b avoided. The NSAID specific 4 as is indocin (indomethacin). If not on this, ask ur treating md if it is ok 2 try it. Has a lot of side effects especially GI but not as bad as steroids. If u r able 2 tolerate it, it works the best of all. In fact it's also a good diagnostic tool since the response is rapid. Good luck! ...Read more
