Ok: These medications all have different mechanisms of action and I don't think there are contraindications or interactions to worry about. In situations or questions like this, your pharmacist, who has access to information about almost all medications, can be very helpful. ...Read more

R there any drugs for severe m.E? (i dislike drugs but uk nhs wont prescribe nutritiional/herbal/acupuncture type trtmnt on long tern basis..Only drug

Not exactly but: M.E. Is a diagnosis of exclusion. My experience is that most with it actually have chronic lyme with co-infections (but drugs are of limited help for that). Also, many are hypothyroid- even if their TSH is "normal" so thyroid hormone can help quite a bit. Many have intestinal parasites- not always easily diagnosed- many drugs can help these, but so can natural things like papaya seeds.See comment:. ...Read more

Is there a generic drug that compares to onglyza (saxagliptin)? It's very costly. I also take metformin 500 tid & glucotrol ER 10 bid.

Talk with your doctor about diabetes education classes or seeing a nutritionist. Also, make sure you are exercising, it helps your body's tissues use the glucose in your blood and helps control your blood sugar. ...Read more

What makes Trovax different from other kidney cancer meds (like nexavar, proleukin, torisel, (temsirolimus) sutent)?

Other drugs worked: Nexavar, torisel, and sutent all received FDA approval because they improved progression free survival.

I'm taking the drug januvia (sitagliptin) for type 2 diabetes is this a safe drug to take?

I'm taking the drug januvia (sitagliptin) for type 2 diabetes is this a safe drug to take?

Very safe: Januvia (sitagliptin) has very few side effects. Unlike some other diabetes drugs (glipizide, Insulin etc) it does not cause hypoglycemia attacks, nor increase appetite and weight. There have been rare reports of pancreatitis but these have not been confirmed in clinical trials, and may be simply due to the fact that patients with diabetes are more likely to get pancreatitis irrespective of treatment. ...Read more
