When the warning label on my medication I take says it will make me sun sensative what exactly does that mean? Does it mean im more prone 2 sunburns?
Yes: Many medications make you sun sensitive. This means you are more susceptible to sun burn and even other changes due to UV exposure. Tetracycline for instance can give you dark fingernails when exposed to sun. It is best to avoid unnecessary exposure while on the medication and use a good broad spectrum block with either zinc or titanium in the mixture. ...Read more

When is a doctor permitted to prescribe a medication for "off-label" use (an ailment for which the medication isn't officially approved)?

Dr, oz recommend 2% greek yogurt.....Does this refer to grams of fat in product or what exactly is 2% greek yogurt? I buy the non fat kind.....And it says 0/0 % on label in get chobani brand....Can I use this? And where can I get blue potato chips...I am
Hi. Yogurt is a food made by the natural bacterial fermentation of milk. Because greek yogurts are not heat treated and undergo little processing, they are a great source of probiotics. Probiotics are beneficial to the intestinal tract. Because of the live cultures in greek yogurt, it is reported to help with the absorption of calcium. Greek yogurt contains more protein and less sugar than typical american yogurts. Additionally, many people like the thick consistency of greek yogurt. Even with greek yogurts you need to check labels. Those that are flavored usually contain more sugar and more calories. The percentage of protein and carbohydrate differs depending on the brand. Greek yogurt is a great way to help meet your daily recommended dairy intake. It is also an awesome way to satisfy your sweet tooth while still eating healthy.
2% milk fat gets 35% of the it's calories from fats. Whole or 4% milk fat gets 46% of it's calories from fat. 1% milk fat gets 20% of it's calories from fat. Skim or nonfat milk get no calories from fat. Only 2% of the total volume of 2% milk is fat. But milk is composed mostly of water.
Chobaini makes great yogurt. 0% fat yogurt is fine. However, if you were diabetic or trying to work on a really good glycemic balance, the extra fat in 2% could aid in breaking down the calories more slowly.
I hope this was helpful, even if I don't know where to buy blue chips in florida. Take care. ...Read more

I have chronic migraine and have tried ALL of the off-label meds, ALL of the triptan drugs, and many, many alternative types of treatment.
Many drugs are offered via both prescription and OTC (i.e. Esomeprazole 20mg). I am aware they technically have different indications or directions per the label, but why are doctors still highly prescribing these drugs if they are available OTC?
OTC, Rx cost: Often the decision to recommend an OTC (over the counter) medication or write a prescription for the same medication depends on out of pocket cost to the patient. ...Read more

Should I change my daughters milk she's 3months and since she was born I gave her the blue label similac, she would throw up most of it and would get really fussy after eating. I recently changed it to the sensitive similac which is for spit-up and gas but
How long has she been on the new formula? If it has been less than 2 weeks, give it a good month to see if the baby gets used to it and her constipation improves.
You may want to consider completely switching from a milk based formula to soy based formula. If she does not tolerate soy, then you need to bring this isssue up with her pediatrician.
Best of luck. ...Read more
