My son who is 8 had a nosebleed and headache today, he came in from long haul flight yesterday from qatar to ireland.?

Flight symptoms: Your son is likely dehydrated as lengthy flying dries you out. The nose can also dry out which increases the chance of nosebleeds. Give him plenty of fluids, and get him back on his usual routine and he should be fine. ...Read more

Ask your internist: I recommend seeing an internist first (for things like ulcers, esophageal reflux etc) since they can treat 90% of the problems. If the internist feels your symptoms are more than they can handle, then they can refer you to the best gastroenterologist in your area, since they have an inside knowledge of who is good. A good question to ask is, "Who would you refer yourself to, if you had my symptoms? " ...Read more

I want to try using injectable contraceptive. I'm single and hasn't given birth? Is it safe? And is it available in qatar? Coz im planning to work der

Safe in the U.S.: Injectable contraceptives (such as DepoProvera) are safe in the US and in other developed countries where women have excellent access to health care and are not discriminated against. Medications and procedures are likely LESS safe in countries where women are not fully free to do what they need to do (whenever they need to), see who they need to see, and use whatever medication they need to use. ...Read more

What can qvar do if its not prescribed to me?

What can qvar do if its not prescribed to me?

Nothing....: If it's not prescribed, it won't help. However, the benefits of qvar can potentially be great. I've seen asthmatics not controlled on 3 or 4 meds and add qvar to it (even with another steroid) and their symptoms resolved in 1 week. ...Read more

Can qvar and advair be taken together?

Can qvar and advair be taken together?

Yes: I often will do this, especially for asthma patients that are difficult to control. The reason is that the steroid component of advair is a large particle and thus only gets in the larger airways. Qvar is a smaller particle steroid, thus it gets deeper in the airways. Combining the two often works very well, then after a month or two, you can usually stop one of them. ...Read more

How do I know the difference between a PE and pneumonia? Will QVAR make a PE feel better.

See below: Often, a PE and pneumonia symptoms are similar - shortness of breath, pleuritic chest pain, cough. However, with pneumonia, the cough is more likely to be productive, you could have a fever and the chest xray will show infiltrates. A PE usually doesn't show up on CXR unless you've had a lung infarct. QVAR will not do anything to help a PE. ...Read more

Qvar medium dose: Yes, it is a medium dose, systemic side effects are unlikely with such dosage, stepping down from this dosage depends on how are you doing clinically, mainly absence of night time symptoms, exercise tolerance, and reduced asthma flares.

Should I take qutan 50 & rivotril 0.5 mg after consuming alcohol?

Should I take qutan 50 & rivotril 0.5 mg after consuming alcohol?

Depends on your goal: Serious question so bear with me. Are voices telling you to do this? If so, then, don't listen to them. If not, then, you should admit that voices were telling you to do this because the idea is BAD, BAD, & just to be sure I don't miss it- VERY BAD. I think you need to talk with someone bout why you're looking to potentially hurt yourself. How bout a glass of water to wash down them pills. ...Read more

Asthma control: Yes, it is safe to take the 2 medications together. Qvar and singulair (montelukast) are often used as "controller" medications for asthma. Hopefully by using them concurrently, you will have to use your bronchodilator (such as albuterol or xopenex) less often. ...Read more

How can I get off of having to take albuteral daily, when qvar does not work well for me?

How can I get off of having to take albuteral daily, when qvar does not work well for me?

Poor asthma control: If you need albuterol daily, your asthma isn't adequately controlled and you need to be followed closely by a doctor competent in managing asthma. You do need daily maintenance medication, but it's possible Qvar isn't the right one or that you're not using it correctly. You may have environmental triggers that need addressing and may need more than one medication. Bottom line: see your doctor! ...Read more
