12 years post op rny, iron 20 & vitamin d at 10. Seeing a new dr that hasn't worked with deficient gastric bypass, is 325ferrous 3x and 2000d 1x okay?

12 years post op rny, iron 20 & vitamin d at 10. Seeing a new dr that hasn't worked with deficient gastric bypass, is 325ferrous 3x and 2000d 1x okay?

Nutrition!: A gastric bypass is a very complex nutrition situation. If your physician has not dealt with it much i would suggest asking for a referral to a nutritionist or a bariatric center. That being said, the dosage of iron is fda approved treatment for iron deficiency, and the vitamin d is a reasonable amount. You have many nutrient levels that should be monitored and carefully watched! ...Read more

Plant vs fish omegas: The type of omega 3 fatty acids (including dha) in plants are shorter in fatty acid chain length than the ones in fish. Our bodies use then longer chains much more efficiently, perhaps 6-10 times more efficiently. ...Read more

I've been taking dolaseds for about 2years now & i think I'm addicted,but I've stopped taking dolaseds for 3 days now & i can't sleep pls help???

? codeine withdrawal: The amount of codeine in this analgesic is relatively low, but the use of any opiate for long enough can result in physical dependency and some withdrawal. Insomnia is common with withdrawal, but I would expect the other symptoms - muscle aches and cramps, stomach cramps, diarrhea, nausea and others. It is likely to only last a few more days, but you could take an OTC med (Unisom etc) to help. ...Read more

Had upper GI endoscopy recently, have gastritis and only on bland boiled vegetables diet. Will taking vitamin C tablets help me heal faster?

Had upper GI endoscopy recently, have gastritis and only on bland boiled vegetables diet. Will taking vitamin C tablets help me heal faster?

A lot faster with Rx: Unless there are other inciting risks to inflammation in your stomach (like h.Pylori, tobacco, too liberal alcohol, Aspirin or other nsaid's, etc.) your gastropathy will likely heal within a few weeks. Of course, you can speed up the healing process by starting an acid blocker drug like Prilosec otc daily. Vitamin c and boiled vegetables is not the answer. ...Read more

I'm 10w pregnant & I've allergy that keeps getting worse sneezing itching ears & throat congestion & the PA told me i can take allegra (fexofenadine) ! Is it safe?

I'm 10w pregnant & I've allergy that keeps getting worse sneezing itching ears & throat congestion & the PA told me i can take allegra (fexofenadine) ! Is it safe?

No Allegra (fexofenadine): Claritin (loratadine) and Zyrtec (cetirizine) are pregnancy category B medications which means that animal reproduction studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus. I frequently use these medications with my pregnant patients. Allegra (fexofenadine) is category C so I would avoid this medication and stick with the ones listed above. If concerned, talk to OB/GYN about specific medications. ...Read more

Cough: you can certainly use plain robitussin (guaifenesin) or guafenisen for your cough. Most cough drops are also safe. However, if coughing up any green mucus or getting worse, please see your doctor to make sure you don't have bronchitis or pneumonia ...Read more

Tsh 4.0 T3 (liothyronine) 27 T4 7.4 testosterone 58 tpo antibody 359 pregnant 7 weeks having chills no fever no overweight BMI 23 worried if something serious help?

Check with Dr.: Your tpo antibody is high, and more than a third of the women who test positive for thyroid peroxidase (tpo) antibodies while pregnant go on to develop abnormal thyroid hormone levels within two years, more followup needs to be done with these women. Your body maybe attacking your thyroid gland. This is not an emergency please do not panic and talk to your doctor. ...Read more

?more history: It is not clear whether you have had no periods at all since your last depoprovera six months ago (which could be normal) or if you have already resumed having regular periods and this one is about five days late so far. If the former you should see your gyn for evaluation within the next month or so. If the latter, once your period is two weeks late it would be a good time to go. ...Read more

Is "eco drink" sold by costco a safe & beneficial like the sale representative claims?

Is "eco drink" sold by costco a safe & beneficial like the sale representative claims?

Possibly toxic sugar: Ecodrink becomes a liquid multivitamin when added to water. It has small amounts of additional antioxidants. As best as i can tell, it has synthetic vit e which i believe is unhealthy but my biggest concern is it has the artificial sweetener sucralose, which, while approved by the fda, may be rather toxic. I avoid products with sucralose.See http://www.Holisticmed.Com/splenda/bowen.Html & comment:. ...Read more

Been with my psychiatrist >1yr, she's been generous w/ time, we've tried 3 ADs. Should I feel I should count my bless. & settle for partial response?

Been with my psychiatrist >1yr, she's been generous w/ time, we've tried 3 ADs.  Should I feel I should count my bless. & settle for partial response?

Don't settle: There are many AD's on the market you haven't yet tried, and using them in combination is the forte of psychiatrists. The typical rule is to make sure there's an adequate dose and duration for each one, and push the dose a bit on each one before determining it isn't effective. Augmenting agents such as Abilify (aripiprazole) and Seroquel have been FDA approved for treatment resistant depression. ...Read more
