Can I suggest a certain chemo drug to my medical oncologist for consideration before the chemo session? Or, does he have to stay with protocol?

Go ahead: Your oncologist often has a variety of choices. Since these drugs are so powerful and dangerous, he will have to stay within an accepted protocol. Many claims addressed directly to patients are misleading at best, cruelly false at worst. He will not mind your asking. If you're interested in getting into a study, all oncologists have ties to these cutting-edge workers. ...Read more

How long can a oral medication for fever blisters leave and help inside your body?

How long can a oral medication for fever blisters leave and help inside your body?

Not sure: Fever blisters or hsv i viral outbreaks can be shortened by immediate use of zovirax, (acyclovir) but if not taken before 48 or so hours into it, it will be of little benefit. I do not know the specific body clearance for the drug, but as it is dosed every 4 hours, i imagine it is cleared rapidly. Medication most helpful if you feel an outbreak coming on, waiting only reduces effectiveness. Good luck! ...Read more

Do uptodate protocols for severe preeclampsia in regards to delivery no longer apply if blood pressure goes down with medication?

Do uptodate protocols for severe preeclampsia in regards to delivery no longer apply if blood pressure goes down with medication?

Let's hear OB's: While I would defer this to my OB colleagues, my understanding is with SEVERE pre-eclampsia that delivery is still indicated even if blood pressure comes down. Blood pressure is not the only thing they are concerned about with this disorder, and if yours is severe as you elude to, I don't think just getting BP controlled would by the fix. Love to hear from OB colleagues! ...Read more
