I just went to the ER about 6 hours ago for a broken molar. I'm in terrible pain and they prescribed Dolobid. It isn't helping at all. What can I do?

You might want to try Ibuprofen 600-800mg + 500-1000mg of Tylenol (acetaminophen). Be surprised is dolobid alone is enoug ...Read more

No cure yet, but...: Allergy shots (allergen immunotherapy) is currently the only treatment that is disease modifiying, meaning it can change how the body responds to exposure to allergens. It is "natural" and long lasting effects carry on after shots are stopped. It works for most, but not all people. Closest thing to a cure so far..... For more read my blog at: http://www.

OTC Allergy: Not fair. Truly, it is trial-and-error. What works best for you might not work best for someone else. Loratadine is the weakest binding non-sedating antihistamine; Cetirizine is the strongest binding non-sedating antihistamine. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) works better than both but it makes people sleepy. ...Read more
