Procedure & reason?: I can't answer your question without knowing your medical and dental history, the procedure that requires antibiotics, and the reason why antibiotics would be required or suggested in the first place. Every situation is different and therefore so is the protocol or individual preferences of the treating doctor. This would be a decision that your doctor should make. Risks vs benefits? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Varies: Great question but unfortunately, there is no single answer. Work hours are usually divided between: office/surgery/deliveries/hospital rounds. The time per week is based on the mds practice, location, and choice of lifestyle. In residency, there is a mandatory 80 hour/week max. This is set by he residency commission. In solo practice, if busy, one may easily cross over that mark. ...Read more

Adhd work days take aderalxr have my company i work nights looking for fast release aderal for after work doc says it is off market other options?
Doctor is wrong: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) tablets (both brand and generic) are still available. These are theoretically "shorter acting" than Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) xr (xr = "extended release). However, there is some danger that even regular Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) could give you too long a duration of action, thereby disrupting sleep. I have used short acting regular Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine sulfate) in these cases. Duration= 4-5 hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does tramadol build up in your system and work better ? Been prescribed 2-3 50 mg per day for nerve pain.
Short half-life: Only 6-7 hours. Tramadol is a rather unique analgesic drug that is indicated for moderate to moderately severe pain. Although it binds to mu receptors, tramadol is not technically classified as an opioid analgesic. Instead, it is classified as a centrally acting synthetic analgesic compound and therefore is not a scheduled narcotic drug. Hope it helps. ...Read more

Should I take levonorgestrel pill 8 hours apart after the 1st dose as instructed by doctor or 12 hours apart from internet?
Doctors orders!: Since your physician went to medical school and spent many years training and learning about taking care of you, I'd simply follow her advice. Who knows where "the internet" did its training! Keep in mind there are so many cases in medicine where there is a range of " answers" and two choices can be "right." Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Prescribed methadone for pain every 8 hours, is it required to take every 8 hours If I would be asleep or needs to be 3x day to work?
Once a day can work: Methadone has a very long half life and is commonly given as a once a day dose. I'm a bit surprised you're taking methadone , but also mentioned Percocet as current medication. Both drugs are strong narcotics and not frequently prescribed together except in difficult pain management cases. I wonder if you have developed an addiction to narcotics. What do you think? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
