It depends: You have to check the ingredients and make sure there is no duplication. Acetaminophen, for example, can appear in many cold remedies and too much Acetaminophen can be toxic to your liver. If you make sure you only have one source of pain and fever medication, one decongestant, one expectorant (for cough) and one antihistamine, then ok. To be sure you don't get confused, ask the pharmacist. ...Read more
Ran out of mixing bowls so I had to use a cooking pot. Noticed tiny bits of the pot in the homemade icing after we ate it. Will it make us sick?
Fine....: Generally speaking, cook ware made in the recent past are made with non-toxic materials. Unless you have a really old pot that is made with Lead, you should be fine. If the pot is relatively new but is flaking, it sounds like it is time to get a new pot. If any issues, you can always follow-up with your Doctor, best wishes. ...Read more

Should be safe: I assume you mean pyrigesic or Acetaminophen (tylenol). This is a non-narcotic pain killer, and it should have no difficulty being combined with the muscle relaxant cyclobenzaprine (flexeril). Just stay under 4000mg, and ideally 3000mg, of pyrigesic per day for the health of your liver. ...Read more
Yes! Most definitely: In fact, early in the epidemic, before there were screening tests for HIV in donated blood, the aids virus (HIV) was transmitted unknowingly through blood transfusions used in surgery and other situations. Accidental needle sticks led a number of health professionals into the aids tragedy as blood samples from hiv+ patients were loaded with active virus particles. "blood-to-blood" is "hi risk"! ...Read more

YES: Suboxone contains Buprenorphine and naltrexone. The first is similar to methadone, but the second, will block the effects of methadone. So, taking them together can lead to or cause a partial withdrawal from the opiates. Normally, it is best to separate the use of these two drugs by 1 to 3 days. Otherwise, instead of a relief from pain or withdrawal, it can cause it! ...Read more

What can happen if i take cocaine? I am on Suboxone 8mg per day. Will mixing these two drugs be dangerous ?
Don't: I'm assuming you have a history of opioid dependence, since you're taking suboxone. The answer to your question is, please don't use cocaine. At the very least, it will decrease your impulse control and make you more likely to relapse on opioids. Please share this with your clinician so you can get more help for substance use. ...Read more
Can i add some sugar to my 9 month formula fed baby by mixing it with formula so he might like it and drink more?
No: More and more scientific research is showing that added sugar is bad for our bodies. The pediatrician, with the growth charts showing a baby's increasing height and weight, can help decide if the baby is taking enough formula and food. If needed, the doctor can recommend some healthier ways to increase food intake and increase calories. Being small doesn't always mean more formula is needed. ...Read more

Behind the lady who dances and the man who madly drinks,

There is always another story, there is more than meets the eye.” --W.H. Auden.

Took Effexor (venlafaxine) 75 mg for two weeks bad results. Switching back to cellexa. How long before I start to feel better, one more day mixing Effexor (venlafaxine) with cel?
Switching Meds: The Effexor (venlafaxine) will flush out of your system within the next couple of days. If that was making you feel worse, your mood will start to improve gradually once you stop taking it. If you felt better on celexa when on it before, then hopefully you will again, but it can take 4+ weeks before it gets up to its full effect. Have you considered seeing a therapist?
