Its OK: Drinking warm lemon juice would be fine. It can help you absorb iron and may also help with morning sickness. Adding a little ginger will also help with morning sickness. Its really tasty with a tiny bit of honey. ...Read more

Is it common after a death of a loved one (spouse) from suicide to continue to have nightmares several months later pop up?

Is it common after a death of a loved one (spouse) from suicide to continue to have nightmares several months later pop up?

GRIEF REACTION: It is a sign of grieving and loss compounded by the traumatic circumstances. Not knowing the details to elaborate, it sounds like a more serious pathological grief reaction with associated ptsd. The nightmares suggest this more complicated situation. Talk to your md and request a referral to a psychiatrist for an evaluation. You need not suffer. I'm sorry for your loss. ...Read more

I have been eating one meal a day for about 8 months and running daily. How can I increase how much eat while continue to lose weight?

I have been eating one meal a day for about 8 months and running daily. How can I increase how much eat while continue to lose weight?

Eat and lose weight: Eating one meal a day will actually make it harder to lose weight. That will actually slow your metabolism down. Eating 3, or even 5 small meals a day is much better believe it or not. You can have 4 small meals/snacks throughout the day and have a high protein & vegetable meal at the end of the day. The frequent meals tends to speed up your metabolism (just don't over eat). Keep up the exercise! ...Read more

I had a irregular cycle so i took clomid100 mg i m ovulated. But after i continue 150 mg so again i will be ovulate or not ?  Twice in one month ?

Doctors instructions: Clomid (clomiphene) must be taken in a very specific way to trigger ovulation. Clarify with the doctor giving you the meidcation what dose you should take and what days you should take it. If you ovulated on 100mg it is not likely the doctor would increase you to 150mg. ...Read more

Went from 2 mg a day of Xanax (alprazolam) to 1 mg in a little over a month. I find it easier to split the tablet in half. Take one half in the morning and one early evening. I want to continue tapering down. How can I taper more with a 1mg tablet?

Xanax (alprazolam) taper: EricF ~ this all hinges on how long you have been taking xanax (alprazolam) 2mg and why. If it has been a short period and for minor social anxiety, then you can taper very fast, if at all. So the 1mg can immed go to 0.5mg and then 5-7 days later stop. The longer you have been on it the more fastidious the taper. From what you say I think you can taper quickly, but always discuss with treating physician ...Read more

Consistent response: Your baby does not know "right or wrong" yet. So as he starts doing something you do not approve of - in this case biting while nursing- you must have a consistent response. Take him off breast for 30-60 seconds while telling him firmly but lovingly "no biting" and repeat that the zillion times it takes him to get the message. (it won't take a zillion, but the message must be every time he bites). ...Read more
