Recent change?: If you have RECENTLY changed to Lactogen and the diarrhea started, then the diarrhea may be caused by the new formula. However, if you have ALWAYS fed the Lactogen, and the diarrhea has only recently started, look for another cause. Offering an electrolyte solution such as Pedialyte after each loose stool can help prevent dehydration. Bloody diarrhea is always cause for concern, needing doctor. ...Read more

Are there side effects to using lactose-free formula?

Are there side effects to using lactose-free formula?

Yes, but all can: Babies do sometimes develop a diminished ability to digest lactose well for a week or two when they have a viral infection in the small intestines. Some pediatricians recommend switching to a lactose-free formula during this period. Nevertheless, when a baby doesn't seem to be tolerating a formula well, switching to another will sometimes do the trick. Different formulas affect stool consistency. ...Read more

Will phototherapy cause side effects for a two and a half year old?

Will phototherapy cause side effects for a two and a half year old?

Possibly: Not because of any direct effect of phototherapy. In that age child, phototherapy has not been used in any studies I could find. Trying to use phototherapy on a child that age I believe, would likely be ineffective and possibly harmful. Harmful because they are developmentally too young to participate in or understand what is happening and could become afraid and traumatized unnecessarily. ...Read more

I might have taken two doses of my 20mg of lexapro. I can't remember if I did. But if I did, is this dangerous? Any side effects???

You should be safe: SSRI are very safe and it takes very high doses to be lethal. However, you may feel very anxious or tired for the next few days. I would skip the dose for a day or two before starting the Lexapro again. ...Read more

Took Lexapro (escitalopram) 10mg for two days then dr said to quit cause side effects. Today is 2nd day not taking it I feel lil better. How long til out of system?

Half-life = 24-25hrs: So, after a day off, you'd have 5mg, the 2nd day, you'd have 2.5mg, 3rd, 1.25 and so on - that's very low - so you should be free of the nasty side effects soon. Clearly, you ae sensitive and before you start ANY medications take the time to read up on them and fully discuss them w/ your provider. Some are very hard to stop. Non-pharma psychotherapy might be a choice to consider. Best! ...Read more

What would be the side effects of nuva rings coming out two years later after use? I stopped using nuva ring about two years ago and already began using the patch right after, but yesterday two of the rings came out... My boyfriend found them after provid

What would be the side effects of nuva rings coming out two years later after use? I stopped using nuva ring about two years ago and already began using the patch right after, but yesterday two of the rings came out... My boyfriend found them after provid

I: I have never heard of this before and I am not quite sure of any adverse effects of leaving them in so long. However, the ring has hormone in it that only lasts about one cycle (3 weeks) therefore if left in longer there is likely no hormone left in the ring. This would be confirmed by you continuing to get a regular period.
Regardless, you should see your doctor for an evaluation and documentation that this occurred.
Take care. ...Read more
