However, if lab abnormality is with liver enzymes, usually rifampin is held as well. ...Read more

Suffering frm neck TB lymphadenitis. Is rifampin 600mg, INH 300 mg, ethambutol 1100 mg & pyrazinamide 1600mg correct dosage for a 77 kg weight.
TB treatment: You are being treated with 4 medications which is good - since it doesn't allow the TB bacteria any good chance of 'escaping' from the treatment. Hopefully only 1 drug is really needed- but I expect you may find that out in the future. Your ethambutol dose and pyrazinamide doses could be a little bit higher, but I am not worried. INH & Rif are the main drugs for treating this & they r dosed well. ...Read more
I am starting to take Pyrazinamide, Rifampin and Ethambutol but also I have RA and I start to fell pain in my joints again is safe to take HYDROcodone?
It's not unsafe: But may or may not be the best answer. There are multiple medications, both new and old, to treat rheumatoid arthritis, and reduce the painful joints by actually reducing the arthritis itself. Hydrocodone or any other opioid will reduce pain somewhat, but carry risks of escalating doses, dependency and even eventually INCREASING the pain itself. It should be used short-term. See a rheumatologist ...Read more

Exposure + Genes: One needs both a genetic component and "exposure" to a said allergen to develop an allergy. There is a growing support over the past 20 years, that growing up in an environment which is "too clean" can also lead to development of allergies down the road. Either way, allergies are on the rise. ...Read more
Nut allergy: Maybe. Your children may have inherited genes from you that make them more likely to develop an allergy, but they do not inherit a specific allergy to a food e.g. Nuts. The children have to be exposed to food proteins in the diet, before an allergy can develop. Once one develops an allergy then they are always allergic and need proper medical attention to prevent severe problems. ...Read more
Allergy tests: There are several types of testing. Some involve certain types of blood tests. Another method is to do a series of skin tests done by pricking the skin and applying different allergens. Other tests are provocative tests that can involve challanging the patient with allergic materials. Testing should be done by doctors specializing in allergy to obtain the best results. ...Read more
Skin & blood tests: Prick testing with allergenic extracts or fresh foods can help confirm allergy, as can blood tests for specific ige antibodies (rast-type tests). However, both types of testing can produce false positive results, and confirmation with food challenges may be needed. ...Read more
Not exactly: The ability to react to certain proteins in an allergic way is passed on from parents to their children, but a specific allergy is not. So if a mom is allergic to pollen and the dad is allergic to fire ants, their child may develop allergies but it may be to a food instead. If 1 parent has allergies, the child is 50% likely to develop allergies, but it's a 75% chance if both parents are allergic. ...Read more
