I am taking bethanechol chloride for a weakened bladder. Does this drug have any actual curative effect?

I am taking bethanechol chloride for a weakened bladder. Does this drug have any actual curative effect?

No...: The popularity of using Bethanechol chloride for "weakened" bladder has undergone significant change; its use was popular back in 1970s-1990s, and has been tapering over the past two decades. It theoretically increases contractibility of bladder muscle, ; its intended effectiveness fell short of expectation. So, some urologists would not bother to use it at all nowadays. It has no curative effect. ...Read more

Can I use lidocaine chloride jelly on my rectum?

It can also mask pain at certain times you should be actually feeling it, if you know what I mean. It's very useful for painful anal fissures or hemorrhoids before definitive treatment. Just don't over-use it to hide something ...Read more

Could you explain what is potassium chloride and is it lethal?

Could you explain what is potassium chloride and is it lethal?

Essential mineral: Potassium (k) is an element, it is actually a metal and forms salts easily, much like sodium. Potassium is essential to the function of muscle and nerves via a biologic system of electrical potentials. When the k level outside the cell is too high your heart stops, when the k level is too low muscles freeze up. K levels are controlled by the kidneys, high k levels are frequent in renal failure. ...Read more

Chloride level was 101 in may but now is 93. Why the dip?

Serum chloride: Serum chloride concentrations change for only a few reasons - 1. Can dip if serum sodium dips also: will follow sodium. 2. Can dip if serum bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) rises: reciprocal change. 3. Chloride thus is a secondary anion -- it follows another ionic change as above. Discerning the primary cause is essential: sodium depletion, water retention (1.). Bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) retention, chloride loss (2.) Doc knows ...Read more

What causes a slightly low Chloride serum level? My level was 97. C02 was 29 which was slightly elevated.

Slightly low CL?: Most likely a variation within ur normal range. It is best to ignore slightly low or high tests when many are done. Eating, supine or standing, time of day, when u last drank water or took meds or how fast u were breathing or how the blood was drawn/ processed, squeezing hand before blood draw, breAthing too fast or too slow on purpose or from anxiety may change many blood tests.

I had my blood drawm and they said I had high chloride levels I am 21 and I do smoke and have for four yrs. What does chloride mean and is it bad?

Blood salts: Chloride is an electrolyte in our body that combines with others to form salts. Commonly it is associated with sodium to form sodium chloride aka salt. As a mineral in our body it helps with cellular function and can easily change with the amounts of hydration we have. If we are dehydrated for example we would expect salt levels to be higher than normal. ...Read more

Is magnesium chloride the same as magneeium citrate?

Pretty similar: But not precisely the same. Elemental magnesium has a positive charge to it (technically a +2 charge) so the only way to get it into a pill form that you can take orally is to mix it with something that is negatively charged so that the resulting compound is neutral. Chloride and citrate both accomplish this. ...Read more

No: It takes five seconds to make up a lie. You can spend a year showing why it's not true, and if you do, you're still going to be portrayed as the bad guy. Real carcinogens mutate genes or are obvious tissue-damaging agents -- anything can do stuff in a junk-science experiment, and people pretending to be your friends report this to rip you off. Stop worrying. ...Read more
