It Is Fine That I Have Taken Levaquin For 4 Days And Still Do Not Feel A Difference
I have mononucleosis since 7 days so far and my throat hurts a lot. Once I take voltfast I rly feel relieved but the thing is that I am only allowed to have it 3 times a day which is unsuffiscient to last for the whole day? Any idea why! Any recommendatio
Ask About Prednisone: On top of medications like Voltfast (diclofenac) you can take, at the same time of, or maybe in your case in-between, doses.The two work by different mechanisms and don't interfere with each other (assuming you have normal liver and kidney function and take as directed).Also, here's an excuse to eat ice cream or ice milk because cold helps.There is also another medication your doctor can prescribe ...Read more
I don't normally go #2 more than 1x a week but have gone every day for the past 4days and it has been a dark mucus/liquid (I guess not sure how to describe it....it not quite diarrhea) with an odor. I do not have any stomach pain and don't know if it is
I have really bad tonsillitis, been on amoxicillin 50mg for 2 and a half days, not clearing it as fast as I would like, can I take 4 a day?
Even better idea..: Get another antibiotic. There's a lot of resistance to the penicillin derivatives in the bacteria out there these days. Amoxicillin just might not be working at all, and might not work no matter how much you take of how long you take it. Rather than fiddle with the dose yourself, revisit your doctor and get a different antibiotic. ...Read more
Yes I have been feeling sick for a day or so it comes and goes no other symptoms should I take a test ? on depo shot but that is it for birth control
Depo: Depo is quite effective for birth control. Since you did not use condoms the likelihood of a sexually transmitted disease is high. If you are speaking about having cultures done for the wide variety of STDs that you could have contracted then I would recommend going immediately for testing. If you are speaking of a pregnancy test I would recommend it is not necessary. ...Read more
I got a pap smear yesterday and some spotting started after, I knew it was normal. But it is still going on today, and though I know that some bleeding can continue for 48 hrs I feel that the amount has increased. Although it is not alot you can see a dif
I just took a claritin (loratadine) about 6 hours ago and just took a zyrtec is that okay? Also Im not sure if I have a cold or allergies, I think its both :(. Ive been using the zicam hopefully it will make it go away. What do u suggest? thank u so much
See your doctor: Or an allergist, seems your symptoms need more control and OTC drugs aren't working. No harm of combining claritin (loratadine) and zyrtec 6 hours apart, but don't repeat without doctor's advice. Zicam is controversial and the FDA issued a warning about using the product and there was a recall. Check aaaai.org or acaai.org for an allergist in your area, good luck ...Read more
I take savella (milnacipran) for my fms and i tolerate it well but not sure if it really is helping.? I have only noticed 2 changes everything else is the same.
How long does it take to get over a kidney infection? Iv been taking levaquin (levofloxacin) for 4 days and i see a little difference but still some pain.
See your physician.: Kidney infections are serious and require prompt treatment with the right antibiotic. Hopefully you have a urine culture result by now which will show the correct antibiotic. Flank pain is common even on proper therapy, but worsening pain & fever requires re-evaluation with physical exam & possibly imaging as your current regimen may be inadequate. See your physician as soon as you can. ...Read more
I take 600mg gabapentin 3x a day and I have not taken a dosage yet. I am in a lot of pain and would like to know if it is safe for me to take a 5mg percocet?
Should be: When multiple medications are needed for the same reason, especially pain, it's advisable for a single doc or dr group to be managing them all. This helps ensure that potential interactions are tracked which improves safety. That being said, it's common for percocet and gabapentin to be prescribed and taken together, and the combination is generally safe but can be quite sedating. ...Read more

I'm 27 and have costchonditis and the doctor said it would get better in a few days as long as I take my meds and I still have it months later why?
I will be at 27 weeks tomorrow and for 2 days have been experiencing some pelvic pain/pressure. It is not bad but uncomfortable. Is this normal?
Check-in w/OB: If it's not worsening or coming in waves (like a contraction), not associated with a vaginal discharge, it's likely normal but it would be good to let your OB know about it as well. If it is worsening, coming in waves or you do have an increased discharge with it, it would be good to see your doctor right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have cold medicine with acetaminophen im not suppose to take aspiran for ten days and i have a bad cold is that alright to take? Thank You
I don't if its pregnancy or stomach issue? Its been over a week now and after every meal i feel like a want to vomit. The only thing i can stomach is fruits and water. I took a test and it said negative so i'm not sure what it could be. This is my first d
You : You could be dealing with a stomach flu/gastroenteritis. The sypmtoms usually last about a week. Make sure you drink plenty of fluids and eat a bland diet until you improve. On the other hand, it may not be a stomach flu or food poisoning, therefore, you should repeat the pregnancy test in about a week. Good luck. ...Read more
I have taken medicine for a UTI and a PID, but I still hurt. Could the antibiotics not have taken care of it all? Should I do another round?
Why is it when i take celebrex im so tired for a couple of hrs? wondered if i should just take advil instead, whats in it thats doing that?
Why is it that every time I am prescribed antibiotics with the "basics" it works for awhile and then I have to get a stronger one?
I have a sore throat it really hurts when I swallow for about 10 days now. I'm taking amoxicillin for 4 days now 875 mg. But it seems like the same as of 4 days ago not seem to be working or can it b something else.?
Viral infection: If the cause of your symptoms is a bacterial infection, you should begin seeing resolution of your symptoms on that antibiotic. It may be that your infection is viral and, if so, the antibiotics will not be effective and will take about a week or so to resolve. If there is no improvement, or worsening, in the next 2 to 3 days i would see your physician again. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
