Is there side effect for creatine? If I take it before workout?

Is there side effect for creatine? If I take it before workout?

Yes: I agree with dr nguyen. We see many patients with elevation in blood creatinine (creatine is broken down to creatinine). This can suggest kidney dysfunction. It may also cause water retention. There is some sketchy evidence that it builds muscle mass, and make you stronger for short bursts, but most doctors feel the potential or real harm outweighs the benefit of taking creatine. ...Read more

Is it safe or dangerous if i take suppliment for my body after jym , is there any side effect in future ?

Is it safe or dangerous if i take suppliment for my body after jym , is there any side effect in future ?

Too vague . . .: There are as many 'supplements' as there are companies selling them. Without you being more specific as to which supplement you are taking (and what ingredients are in them), it would be impossible to adequately answer your question. ...Read more

Does the protien have any side effects if i took it in regular way as suplement for bodybuilding ?

Does the protien have any side effects if i took it in regular way as suplement for bodybuilding ?

Not really: It may cause weight gain but taken normally it should cause no side effects assuming a healthy pair of kidneys. Large protein loads on people with bad kidney function can be problematic. Need to make sure you drink plenty of water and workout. Added protein like anything else eventually leads to increased caloric intake. ...Read more

Fluoroquinolone: The prostate is a rather difficult organ to penetrate with antibiotics. It is encapsulated and require long periods of time for any meaningful antibiotic concentrations to build up.

Doctor if i take weak erection drug like viagra (sildenafil) how long will it take before it take effect and is there any possible side effects?

Doctor if i take weak erection drug like viagra (sildenafil) how long will it take before it take effect and is there any possible side effects?

Viagra (sildenafil): Viagra (sildenafil) starts to work in about 30-60 minutes. There is a lot of fake viagra (sildenafil) being sold online so i would recommend buying directly from pfizer at viagra (sildenafil).Com to be safe. The complete list of side effects is printed on the front page of viagra (sildenafil).Com. It is a generally safe drug, but if you have sudden loss of vision or your erection lasts more than 4 hours seek emergency medical advice. ...Read more

Prilosec S.E.'s: Prilosec is a very well tolerated medication, but in the short term it can cause a number of dose-dependent side effects including commonly headache and diarhea. Longer term use carries other consequences (please see my earlier answer on this topic in healthtap). ...Read more

Is it safe to take 5 grams of L-Glutamine daily? i've been taking  it for a week now and no side effects to report.

What for?: Why are you taking it? Did a doctor prescribe it? It is not doing you any good. 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 or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I have read a lot about biotin being good for healthy hair/hair growth. Is it safe to take? Are there any side effects? What is the max dose per day?

I have read a lot about biotin being good for healthy hair/hair growth. Is it safe to take? Are there any side effects? What is the max dose per day?

Very safe,no,16 mg: Biotin has many benefits. While deficiency is rare, there may be benefits to taking relatively high doses. It's not known to be toxic and has no side effects. There is no "max dose" considered dangerous but the highest dose researched is 16 mg/day (which is safe). Unless you are diabetic no need for so much.

I take Paxil (paroxetine) and clonazepam and i have cold/flu I need medicine but the only thing recommended is Mucinex dm which never worked for me! Is there anything else I can take that is safe less side effects?

I take Paxil (paroxetine) and clonazepam and i have cold/flu I need medicine but the only thing recommended is Mucinex dm which never worked for me! Is there anything else I can take that is safe less side effects?

Try topicals: The only interaction between OTC cold medicines and paroxetine is the increased risk for serotonin syndrome (rare). If you have a history of this syndrome or any others - I'd call your doctor. In the meantime - I'd suggest an intranasal spray (Nasacort) and Chloraseptic Max throat drops to treat the symptoms. DayQuil should be ok - but check with your doctor since they know your history. G'luck! ...Read more

I am on diet and taking a pill named "adipex retard". May I know is it any side effect for my body? Will it spoil my kidney? How long should I stop?

I am on diet and taking a pill named "adipex retard". May I know is it any side effect for my body? Will it spoil my kidney? How long should I stop?

Phentermine: Phentermine can have many side effects, including tachycardia, insomnia, dizziness, constipation, etc. It is metabolized by the liver, so your kidneys won't be directly affected. Most treatment courses last no more than 6 wks; this drug can be habit forming, and dangerous side effects can occur if it is stopped abruptly. Please be sure you are seeing a physician while taking this drug. ...Read more

If after been on citalopram for a few months no side effects is it ok to drink alcohol again?

If after been on citalopram for a few months no side effects is it ok to drink alcohol again?

No, but: technically no, but I usually recommend no more than 2 drinks at a time and no more than twice a week since I know that many of my patients will drink anyway. The main interaction is that the antidepressant may intensify effects of alcohol especially reaction time. Also alcohol can cause depression so may not be wort risk if you are doing well on celexa (citalopram) ...Read more

Do I have to rest from taking creatine monohydrate? I've been taking it for 5 weeks as a pre-workout and I'm still taking it.

Do I have to rest from taking creatine monohydrate? I've been taking it for 5 weeks as a pre-workout and I'm still taking it.

No: Don't be a sucker. There are enough amino acids, vitamins and minerals to help bigger muscles w/o supplements in a "Quarter Pounder". The placebo effect makes millions of dollars for charlatans who offer nothing more scientific than testimonials. The Torah says the best place to hide a lie is between two truths. Stay healthy. Eat healthy and eschew the supplements ...Read more

Yes, but...: You can use but in moderation. Note: There's no magic pill, and it will never be. Citrulline is merely an Amino Acid in foods and produced in our own body. Clinically, The accumulating undesirable effect of aging + illnesses has deteriorated sexual function and overall energy and ability to the level unable to response and perform.
