Both my husband abe I have been on opiates for pain for years (7 &6) we want off them, dr want to put us on librium & pristiq, (desvenlafaxine) will this work?

Both my husband abe I have been on opiates for pain for years (7 &6) we want off them, dr want to put us on librium & pristiq, (desvenlafaxine) will this work?

No, not enough: Neither Librium nor Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) will cover your opiate habituation or help you taper specifically from opiates. For that you will need other medicines -- and there are choices. Please see an addiction medicine and/or pain medicine physician -- both of you. Depending on what you're each taking, you may each need different amounts. ...Read more

Abe chronic radial artery occlusion due to thrombosis. Off blood thinners. Was told pain is not due to occlusion. What would cause pain in hand?

Occluded artery: The vascular supply of the hand is very variable. So you need to be evaluated to see if there is a vascular/blood supply issue or if this is a so-called "red herring" and there is another completely different issue. There are many other causes of pain in the hand, too many to list here. Everything from carpal tunnel to tedonitis to arthritis etc... ...Read more

I am 27 years, is it okay if I use micro hyaluronic cream with coq 10 for my age? Or it will make my skin to get use to it? Can I stop using it later

I am 27 years, is it okay if I use micro hyaluronic cream with coq 10 for my age? Or it will make my skin to get use to it? Can I stop using it later

Yes: I am assuming you are buying this cream over the counter, in which case the only thing you should be worried about is potential allergy go the cream's ingredients. If you notice redness, rash, or swelling of the place where you use the cream, stop and see a doctor. Otherwise, you should know that over the counter creams have very little amount of these active ingredients, so it's ok to use. ...Read more

Don't microwave: It's not bad for the milk, but it does heat the bottle unevenly and you risk burning the baby's mouth. Safer to warm the bottle in a bowl of hot water. ...Read more

Pituitary: Your question is cryptic and confusing, and I don't understand all the abbreviations. In general, the images of the pituitary by MRI don't always correspond to the hormone levels. Pituitaries can form lumps, can get squeezed against the sella (i.e. "empty") and yet still function well. Talk to you Endocrinologist who can sort out the complexity. ...Read more

I have an allergy (red itchy papular rash) to tapes incl medi/micro/trans-pore tapes; worse w/ tegaderm. An alternative option 2 be able 2 secure IV?

Hypoallergenic tape: There are tapes which are less likely to cause a contact allergy. Just ask for them. Do note the "less likely" description. Another approach would be to apply a cortisone cream at the site first then apply the tape an hour later after the cream has dried up and the cortisone has a chance to bind to the skin cells. ...Read more

Antibiotics: Antibiotics are for infections. I doubt you got an infection from a small cut like you described. Unless you become swollen and/or have pus coming out of the wound, I don't think you need to worry. Watch what you eat the next few days to allow the tissue to heal. ...Read more
