Should i be careful with a drug with the following active agents:paracetamol 500mg/pseudoephedrine hydrochloride 60mg/triprolodine hydrochloride2.5mg?

Follow doc's instrxn: Taking the med as directed either by doc or on package label should keep u safe. Paracetamol = tylenol (acetaminophen) (so don't take extra tylenol (acetaminophen)); Pseudoephedrine is decongestant (shrinks membranes, reduces congestion; may elevate blood pressure); triprolidine is antihistamine that can cause sedation; so no alcohol when taking this med. ...Read more

Can i take one 10 mg cetrizine hydrochloride tablets (10 mg) daily, for more than one month, if it helps me to control my nasal allergy?

Can i take one 10 mg cetrizine hydrochloride tablets (10 mg) daily, for more than one month, if it helps me to control my nasal allergy?

Yes you can: Cetirizine or zyrtec is a very safe medication and you can take it every day for months if it is enough to control your allergy symptoms. Over the counter saline nasal spray or rinse might help your nasal symptoms a bit too. If those are not enough to control your symptoms or you have frequent sinus infections or cold/flu like symptoms, you might need to come see a local allergist to be evaluated. ...Read more

How do TCAs actually work to control non-migraine headaches? SSRIs aren't common for this, so is it the norepinephrine that is the agent helping?

How do TCAs actually work to control 
non-migraine headaches? SSRIs aren't common for this, so is it the norepinephrine that is the agent helping?

Great question: Great question! Norepinephrine is definitely involved in the interpretation of pain signals in various areas of the brain. However, serotonin definitely has a role to play (eg, the triptan drugs for migraine work on a specific subtype of serotonin). So, in theory, it's thought that these components together synergistically act to alleviate headache. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Fasting blood sugar 140-150, random 123, HBA1C 8.8. Sitagliptin / Metformin Hydrochloride since one month. Weight gain 4.5 lb. How to control Fasting?

Fasting blood sugar 140-150, random 123, HBA1C 8.8. Sitagliptin / Metformin Hydrochloride since one month. Weight gain 4.5 lb. How to control Fasting?

Change Meds, exercis: Unfortunately, results with Sitagliptin (DPP4 inhibitor) are not great--especially with the cost. I suggest stay on Metformin, and add the starch-blocker Acarbose with each meal. If that is not enough, add a GLP-1 agonist like Victoza (liraglutide) or Byetta, or an SGLT2 inhibitor like Invokana. All of the above 3 classes of drugs will also help with weight loss, and will not cause low blood sugar. Exercise ...Read more

Is it ok to take jetepar detoxicating agent for liver as a cleansing agent for someone who has no obvious liver problems.

Not safe to take.: It's probably not okay because over the past few years we have seen patients who have developed liver failure to the point of needing liver transplants from using liver cleansing products. Though, this may seem counterintuitive, it's the problem with taking something that your body doesn't need, there is always a risk. ...Read more
