A doctor prescribed my 2 year old a half tsp of rondec dm syrup every 4 to 6 hours as needed is this a safe dose?

Cough medicine: Cough/cold medications do not help relieve the symptoms they are meant to take care of. In short, they are useless for children below 6 years old. In addition, the child is exposed to bad side-effects from them like drowsiness, irritability, hyperactivity. Best medicine is lots of fluids, saline for the nose and possibly a cool mist humidifier in his room. Try honey for the cough. ...Read more

I just used a dose of Robitussin (DM) without reading the "do not use" portion, should I be nervous since I take 100mg Sertraline?

I just used a dose of Robitussin (DM) without reading the "do not use" portion, should I be nervous since I take 100mg Sertraline?

No you shouldn't be: Nervous, just don't take any extra Robitussin DM, the problem is with the DM part which interacts with Sertraline. The Dextromethorphan (DM), will be cleared off your system in about 12 hours, the Sertraline lingers much more, you will be fine, best wishes ...Read more

DM type I, kidney failure, recent toe amputation due to ischemia. Wound is not healing properly. Would supplementation w Vit C help? What dose?

DM type I, kidney failure, recent toe amputation due to ischemia. Wound is not healing properly. Would supplementation w Vit C help? What dose?

So sorry: I'm very sorry for your unfortunate bad luck. Sadly, vitamin C will be of no value to you. Hyperbaric oxygen may help. Evaluation in a specialized wound center is helpful - sometimes there's an element of infection present that can be treated. Good wound care and debridement is important. Cilostazol helps some people. I assume you're anemic and that should be corrected if possible. ...Read more
