I removed my tampon (u by kotex) and I had barely bled, the top was fringed, maybe ripped. Is anything inside me? How do I check/remove it?
Certainly possible: To be allergic to an ingredient in it although I have never seen a case nor have examined the different ingredients in the tampons. The best way to tell is avoid using it for a month and see if your condition improves. If you want to prove the point, use it again and observe for onset of similar symptoms in 24-72 hours. ...Read more

Since you you have moved, is a different doctor prescribing your psychiatric medications as well? If a general doctor is prescribing your psychiatric medications, you could inquire about being evaluated by a psychiatrist. Since you are not my patient, and I know very little about your history, I can not make any specific medication recommendations. However, sometimes if depression is recalcitrant the doctor might consider using a mood stabilizer.
Different therapists and different patients use different approaches to counseling. I have sometimes adopted patients who spent years in counseling but said that the time was spent addressing complaints. Improving depression and anxiety often requires making changes in our lives. Change can be frightening. If your previous counseling was not directed at making healthy life changes and you really are motivated to pull up your sleeves and do what it takes; talk to your new therapist about this approach. Good luck. ...Read more
Will social security stop giving me ssi benefits if I stop taking my medication for paranoid schizophrenia? I don’t want to jeopardize the payments.
Likely not: The government does not have medication spies. If you need the medication take it. If you don't need it then consider a life without it. Consult your doctor for appropriate treatment to feel best. ...Read more

Not usual course for: Alzheimer's which is usually gradual, not abrupt. This course could be due to a series of strokes, a prion infection such as cjd, a medication reaction to a new drug, a nutritional/vitamin deficiency, or contact with a new toxin. The diabetes certainly is to be considered in the co-morbidity conundrum. Would not consider alzheimer's meds until the diagnosis is reached. ...Read more
I am unable to see a doctor because of no income but I am getting ready to be awarded social security because I have severe neck and back problems. Can someone prescribe me pain medication?
Pain management is: No easy task to get anymore in the US. For one, the pain meds you can get OTC (over the counter), you'll have to pay cash for since they are off patent, and your diagnosis will determine which pain medicine will work best for your condition. A few stronger pain meds like narcotics require special prescription by pain management experts. You can seek free Med care in public health/county hospitals. ...Read more
I don't have Medicaid or a social security and I have a sore throat my tonsils are bigger with white spots. What medication can I take that's over the?
There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
Sometimes: Sometimes they are. For the most part, expired drugs simply lose potency once past their expiration date. There are, however, some drugs that actually become harmful if taken after they expire. As such, it is best to throw out any medications you have after a year. ...Read more
