Is it true that there is a HIV medication you take for five years and virally suppresses HIV forever?
No, HIV medication needs to be taken FOR LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT STOP taking your meds!!!! Whilst you may achieve viral suppression, that does NOT mean you are cured. There is no such thing as "viral suppression forever" without medication.
There are trials going on for HIV vaccines, and hopefully one day there will be a cure, but for now the best we can do is suppress the virus. ...Read more

What would happen to someone that is coinfected with HIV and hepatitis five months without medication?
I just switched from an ssri to an snri five days ago. I'm feeling even worse. Should I stop taking my medication?
Not yet: One week is too soon to give up. If no side effects, you better stick to your program, hopefully including support therapy, psychoeducatoon about mechanism of action of antidepressants and also medication compliance, in your case SNRI. Up to 3 weeks seem to be the average waitng time to achieve therapeutic levels. ...Read more
Talk to your OB: When you are pregnant, you should refrain from getting medical advice online. Your obstetrician knows what is troubling you better than we do. The most common cause for the cough you described would be acid reflux. Its very common during pregnancy, but you need an in the flesh doctor to help you, not some wild guess from one of us online. ...Read more
My five month old only will eat when he drowsy or sleep he has been on reflux medication for awhile and he doesn't have big appetite what could it be?
Normal feeding?: You mention reflux medication and i see on the profile "hydrochlorothiazide." i assume that's your medication and not your baby's. If he is breastfeeding or formula feeding well and is gaining weight, then there is no concern. I was not clear from your question if you meant he was not having a big appetite for solids or for his milk? ...Read more
Just been diagnosed with factor five leiden should I be on medication? I had pe in my lung before i was diagnosed with this
Yes: Generally yes. With your history of pe (unless there was a specific cause for this like a broken bone) and being positive for the factor v leiden mutation, you probably would be placed on lifelong anti-coagulation (e.g. Warfarin). However, it depends on your history, other medical risk factors, etc. ...Read more

My five years old started with a cold sore for the first time. Is there any medication or treatment for this condition?
Oral herpes?: First confirm the diagnosis. Not all apparent cold sores are due to herpes. A sore inside the mouth more likely is a canker sore, not a cold sore. Effective treatment is available for oral herpes, but not before confirming the diagnosis and it needs a prescription. Take your daughter to the pediatrician right away -- the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis and for effective treatment. ...Read more
I have a five year old. Her face has white spots that wont away. Her doctor said they would but its been over a year. Any medication for that?
Tryptophan: If protein is not digested body does not get enough tryptophan - precursor for both serotonin and melanin. Could be a sign of indigestion. Get tested with metametrix lab - urine organix profile - this can pinpoint the problem. Use aminosport by biotics or neuro-htp by biotics to improve this issue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I started Yasmin birth control today after being off for five months. I am reading stats on the chance of blood clots and have myself worried, I'm young workout and had been on this medication for almost five years before stopping. Is Yasmin safe ?
Alternatives: The concern is over the drospirenone (synthetic progesterone) component of the pill. Some studies suggest that Yasmin and Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) may have a higher risk of venous blood clots than older birth control pills. However, there are risks associated with any pill, and the benefits generally outweigh the risks. The decision of which pill to use should be made between you and your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Getting five fillings in my teeth is it ok to take my inderal (propranolol) and klonopin before i got I have been taking these medications for a year?
My mother is 47 years old. She is suffering from heavy bleeding and menstrual pain due to fibroids.
Being on homeopathic medication for five years, sh?
See a medical doctor: Sounds like your mom needs to see a medical doctor. There are many medical, and minor surgical procedures that could help her with her heavy bleeding. There is no reason for her to be suffering. Sometimes a simple IUD can stop her bleeding. I'd recommend seeing a medical doctor to get the help she needs. An Ob/Gyn would be the best route. ...Read more
I've had a yeast infection for five months now. I've been to the doctor several times. I've been on several medications fromover the counter to prescription. I've tried several homeopathic remedies and i still can't seem to get rid of the yeast infection.
Vaginitis: Presuming you are referring to a vaginal yeast infection there are several things you might try. Make sure you are treated with an agent effective against yeast (like fluconazole) through one menstrual period. Also have your sexual partner (assuming it is a man) use anti-fungal cream on his penis for about a week twice or three times a day. He may be giving it back to you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have suffered from halitosis for most of my adult life. I took aciphex and that worked for five years. What else should I do my doctor put me on a new medication called Dexilant and that worked for a week. I also have dry mouth. I took an h. Pylori
It : It seems like your physician has taken care of the potential gastrointestinal causes of your halitosis. Bad breath can also occur from untreated dental problems. When is the last time you had a dental exam, radiographs, and a professional cleaning? Cavities full of bacteria, periodontal problems, and accumulated calculus are some of the things that may be contributing to your problem. The dry mouth does not help your situation, either. Is the dry mouth a side effect of other medications you are taking? Hope this info helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Been taking Lexapro (escitalopram) for five years. Once I stop how long does it take for the drug to leave the system?
Not that simple: Assuming you haven't developed any liver or kidney disease in the last 5 years, the drug will be eliminated at the same rate whether you've taken it for 5 years or 5 days. The difference is that your brain may have accommodated to the drug in ways that are not dose-dependent. If so, how long the drug EFFECT will wear off in your case can't be predicted or measured in any practical way. ...Read more
I took 50 mg of valiums for one day, five 10mg tabs I have a drug test coming up dec 3 , its nov 9th now i was wondering if ill pass or fail ?
I took 50 mg valiums for one day, five 10mg tabs I have a drug test coming up dec 3 , its nov 9th now i was wondering if ill pass or fail 6'2 5 pd?
Big problem: Valium has a long elimination half-life and also has long-lasting metabolites as well. Passing a drug test will be iffy before 22d. An even bigger issue is why you feel the need to take so many valium tablets on one day? You may have a high tolerance to benzodiazepines and need help with substance abuse -- or your anxiety is extremely high and you need help with this. Please see your physician. ...Read more

I did 90mg OxyContin five days ago and have a drug test tomorrow, will the opiates be out of my system??
Probably not: It really depends on the lab, and how the urine is collected. The real question is this: how do you give your body what it needs without risking any negative consequences. I would recommend a specialist. Most universities have clinics for this. Best to be honest from the beginning, so the cycle of is broken more rapidly. Thank You so much. ...Read more
See inside: Some medications prescribed after a heart attack are Aspirin which prevents further clots, Nitroglycerin which opens arteries in an emergency, a blood pressure medicine known as a beta-blocker which slows heart rate. The goal is to manage every risk factor as perfectly as possible, so cholesterol, blood pressure and diabetes need to be managed ideally. I don't think there are 5 drugs every time. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Do fluoxetine side effects go away? I’ve been feeling nauseated since i started taking fluoxetine five days ago. Will i feel this way the whole time i’m taking this drug?
I took Letrozole 2.5mg for five days. I had bad cramps and a long spotting period could it be a side effect of the drugs?
Ovulation test: If you were taking Letrozole I assume it was to help with ovulation. If so then the key step is to have testing done to determine if ovulation occurred or not. This way the doctor can evaluate if the medication is working or not. This is more important than how it affected one menstrual cycle. If your periods continue to be abnormal have your fertility doctor evaluate you for abnormal periods. ...Read more

Is it advisable to take five prednisone per day for five days? My sister was prescribed the drug for a persistent cough. Is this safe?
Prednisone dosage: High doses of corticosteroids like prednisone cause serious health problems, but only with prolonged therapy. Five days treatment is entirely safe. How effective it will be is another story, however. Perhaps worth a try, but often has little effect against symptoms of respiratory infection. ...Read more
