Can I take solpadeine tablets with targin 5mg for severe pain regards Paul?

Can I take solpadeine tablets with targin 5mg for severe pain regards Paul?

Yes you can.: Solpadeine is tylenol with caffeine. Targin is a trade name for oxycodone with naloxone (the former is an opiate analgesic, the latter is a receptor blocker to prevent addiction or overdose). Solpadeine will augment the 5mg targin and make it work better without any severe side effects in the short term, with the possible exception of caffeine induced insomnia. ...Read more

What does "adequate hydration" have to do with preventing vomiting? [not dehydrat from, paul cohen? ]

What does "adequate hydration" have to do with preventing vomiting? [not dehydrat from, paul cohen? ]

Nothing: When vomiting you must provide adequate hydration; otherwise you will become dehydrated. If you are not able to keep fluids down and replace the losses you would need to be in the hospital getting IV fluids until the problem is passed and you can again take your fluids orally. To prevent vomiting you may need assistance with medications such as phenergan (promethazine). ...Read more

One dr one your board (Paul grin) says the mortality rate for cleft palate surgery is 1 in 300 while another says 1 in 100, 000. Huge discrepancy. Why?

One dr one your board (Paul grin) says the mortality rate for cleft palate surgery is 1 in 300 while another says 1 in 100, 000. Huge discrepancy. Why?

Studies: I cannot speak for any doctor nor the actual figures reported. First, I do not believe there is any consensus on the figures as such studies of mortality rate for this procedure are scarce and will vary based upon who does the study, the size of the sampling, the geographic sampling, the year of the study, how the information was collected, etc. Concentrate on the need and benefit of the surgery. ...Read more

Hey I'm Paul and 16 yrs. I was playing soccer and while running I hurt my toe it isn't swollen or red put hurts when I try to walk on it?

Hey I'm Paul and 16 yrs. I was playing soccer and while running I hurt my toe it isn't swollen or red put hurts when I try to walk on it?

Let it recover...: You need to stay off of it, apply ice to the area in question rest and elevate it. If the problem does not improve in a day, you should have it evaluated. If the toe improves, then you can hold off for another day or two. As long as the toe is improving with time, it is probably not seriously injured. To remove all doubt have your family doctor or a Healthtap specialist evaluate it. ...Read more

Recurrent back pain: This is probably a recurrent back injury. However, you have to be careful. Particularly, if it continues to come back. I would worry about a kidney stone or infection that can sometimes mimic muscular back pain. also you have to worry about more serious causes of back pain like spinal cord stenosis. If you are having recurrent back pain for three months or longer go to the doctor ...Read more

Had ultra sound on kidneys for pain was told drink more water. I drink a gallon a day. Could it be sjögren's syndrome doing this?

Sjogrens syndrome: Yes, as sjogrens is associated with dryness of the mouth and eyes. Perhaps you were dehydrated. Did they see any kidney stones.?
Medications like motrin-ibuprophen can cause intestinal pain near the kidneys and could be the cause. Depo Provera can have lot of side effects and would try to get off that and use tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain instead of ibuprophen. Try meditation and yoga for anxiety. ...Read more
