That's up to you: Your high blood pressure condition may be affected by stress, often times from the type of work we do. It's impossible to predict what job is ideal for you in the context of high blood pressure.

Is a fitness training routine combining rowing, treadmill cycling good?

Yes: You are nicely combining three different forms of aerobic conditioning exercises. Rowing and cycling activities are heart friendly as well as joint friendly; good exercise for the cardiovascular system without beating up your joints. Of the three, the treadmill has more impact on your knees and ankles as you run. Would advise keep in the treadmill flat as opposed to inclined. Easier on the knees. ...Read more

Does the DEA suggest appointment frequencies for people taking schedule IV drugs (Tramadol)? My copays are so high & I have $15,000+ credit card debt.

Does the DEA suggest appointment frequencies for people taking schedule IV drugs (Tramadol)? My copays are so high & I have $15,000+ credit card debt.

DEA: DEA does not dictate appointments - but what they do to doctors that do not have strict rules with regard to controlled medications is significant - the current trend is to see patients monthly if they are on opioids and to do monitoring of the medication use. With regard to your co-pays its called Obamacare! - get used to more expenses on your part. ...Read more

Some drug companies offer trade name drugs at a discount to subjects who can not afford to pay the outrageous asking price. Please write to your senators & representative requesting their action to bring down prices of brand name drugs & fight lobbies. ...Read more

Im quiet an active adrenalin junkie person such as out door sports , scuba diving, motocross ect. Will a breast augmentation limit me with activities?

No limitations: The short answer is that breast implants should not limit your lifestyle. However, it is important that they not be too large and that you are aware of all of the ramifications in terms of implants in athletic women.
