Doc prescribed Fluticone Nasal spray& Fornonide inhaler b.i.d.for 1 week & Montek LC and AB Phylline 1 at night for 14 days for wheezing. Are they safe?

Usually: Ab phylline is not available in the US, but appears to be a form of caffeine-like stimulant that can have cardiac toxicity if you have heart disease or if not taken per instructions. It may have some fast acting effect. Montelukast is generally used as a long term medication to control inflammatory diseases like asthma. Same for the steroid inhaler. Both have minimal toxicities an MD should f/u. ...Read more

When we eat fruits before food or after food.

When we eat fruits before food or after food.

Both!: I've not read any studies that suggest that timing of fruit consumption makes a difference relative to your non-fruit intake. In other words, enjoy your fruit w/o worrying about when you eat, assuming that it doesn't affect your normal appetite. Strive for 5 servings of fruit plus an additional 5 servings of veggies each day. Try not to count store bought juices as you're missing fiber content. ...Read more

It comes as a tablet, and a liquid to take by mouth. Take the regular tablet and liquid two times. ...Read more

What's the dosage of econorm for adults? Should it be taken before food or after food? I'm suffering from loose stools since Wednesday. Not taking any

Uncertain: The benefit, and the dose, and the effect of food, are all speculative. If you have persistent loose stools, swallowing some yeast is not likely to help. To correct the condition requires that you first define the cause. You will need professional help for that. Many episodes of loose stools are brief and self contained. If that occurs in your case, be grateful it is gone and do not experiment wit ...Read more

I was wondering should azythromycin 500mg be taken before food or after food for throat infection?

Either: Azithromycin (except zmax) can be taken with or without food, but food reduces stomach upset. Zmax should be taken on an empty stomach 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal since food reduces its absorption. ...Read more

Tues endoscopy, food stuck. Friday after, food stuck again. Why?

Call your doctor: Food can get stuck because of allergy in the esophagus (eosinophilic esophagitis) or structural abnormalities. But it also can get stuck from eating quickly without chewing enough. What did the biopsies show? Call your doctor to let him/her know. They may have biopsy results and know more information by now. ...Read more

For "take with or after food" medication, what is the minimum amount of food to be taken? Are 2 crackers, or 2 crackers + a hot drink enough? Thks.

Correct: That would be ok. So long as there is some food present to help with absorption of the medication or to help protect the lining of the stomach. Food helps to stimulate the digestive fluids to help absorption of some medications. ...Read more

Gasy all the time after food?

Gasy all the time after food?

Not uncommon: As we age, we are more likely to have gas partly from our slowing gut motility. Certain foods (cabbage, broccoli etc) tends to induce gas from fermentation in the guts. Another potential cause is acid reflux which causes people to subconsciously swallow more saliva to neutralize the acid with the air coming along with it. Consider seeing a GI doctor. ...Read more

Have chronic wind after food and through the night?

Gut issues: You may have indigestion issues - possible poor absorption of certain ingredients (lactose, fat). Have you have a colonoscopy at your age? Have you discussed it with your doc? Try elimination diet where you avoid one product at a time such as dairy, then fatty foods, then gluten and see if that relieves your problem. The other way around - try some gas relievers - simethicone for example. ...Read more

When a medication says, "take with or after food", what is the maximum time after food? Can we take it 1 or 2 hours after food?

Medication food: Certain foods benefit from changes in the stomach with digestion for their absorption. Sometimes this interferes with absorption. Sometimes a medicine can damage the stomach lining, like aspirin, so it is better to take with food. Some foods, like grapefruit, can actually interfere with proper absorption. I would recommend speaking with your pharmacist. For your question, I would say 30 min. ...Read more

Gluc level great 2-4 hours after food (78-90 usually), but RISES after MORE time elapses...up to 110 (upon waking up). What??? Why? Is this a prob?

Gluc level great 2-4 hours after food (78-90 usually), but RISES after MORE time elapses...up to 110 (upon waking up). What??? Why? Is this a prob?

Depends: Hi. The only standard defined values are fasting, a standard time after a fixed glucose challenge (75 grams, 2 hours; variations in pregnancy), and a non-fasting glucose >/= 200. If those 110's are fasting, then that's abnormal. And don't forget, for diagnostics, serum glucose is used, not finger-stick glucose (capillary blood). So it may or may not be a problem, depending on whether it's fasting ...Read more

Why the fasting sugar 135 and after food 120?

Fasting glucose: A fasting blood test is not used to diagnose diabetes (d) today. It is diagnosed by a hemoglobin a1c test (h). Your fasting glucose being elevated suggests that you have glucose intolerance. You should see an endocrinologist and have a h test done to see if you have either d or pre-diabetes. If you're overweight you should try to reduce your weight and carbohydrate intake and exercise more. ...Read more
