Start Taking Antibiotics In The Evening
Is it ok to take Advil in the morning, multivitamin with lunch or dinner and then solodyn (minocycline) later in the evening before bed?
When should you take the probiotics when taking the antibiotics ciciprofloxacin and metronidazole?
Both during & after: I advise taking probiotics both during & after antibiotic therapy. It is wise to take sacchromyces boulardii (like florastor) during treatment to prevent antibiotic-associated diarrhea & yeast overgrowth & a high potency acidophilus/bifidus (at least 20 billion bacteria) both during treatment and for 2-4 weeks afterwards. ...Read more

No: The only tried and true method of weight control is proper diet (consult with a dietician), exercise (consult with your family physician to make sure you are healthy enough) and determination to stick with it for duration.

Do the morning after pill Aftera work if conception has taken place? Also when taking the pill do the 72hrs start the day of or after sex
Not as well: Emergency contraceptive pills work best when taken right away (so they probably should be called "minute-after pills" instead of "morning-after pills"). If conception is when the egg gets fertilized (not later), then Aftera and other brands of levonorgestrel still have some effect. Start counting 72 hours at ejaculation; and always check a pregnancy test 3 weeks after emergency contraception. ...Read more
Should probiotics be taken while taking a course of antibiotics or after finishing the antibiotics? Do they counter each other?
Better options: Taking both Claritin (loratadine) and Hydroxyzine may be over doing it. You can get notable sedation especially if taken consistently. Claritin (loratadine) is longer acting; while Hydroxyzine is short acting. Consider seeing a dermatologist about your rash. Zyrtec may be better at blocking delayed allergy reactions. Stick to one long term antihistamine daily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I take Prozac 40mg. Is there any benefit in taking it in divided doses, 20mg each, in the morning and in the evening?

Yes: Probiotics are given to patients who are receiving antibiotics because they have been shown to decrease the incidence of antibiotic associated diarrhea and possible decrease the incidence of c. Difficile colitis. You can take them both at the same time but it would be better if you took the probiotics 1 hour before or 2 hours after taking the antibiotics. ...Read more
I started a new pack of birth control and threw up after taking one of the pills and didn't take another one is it ok to continue taking the rest?

After taking all 21 active oral contraceptive tabs, starting the first tab on the day of a medicinal abortion, should my period come now during the placebo pills of the pack like normal?
Not necessarily: The pills will prevent you from getting pregnant, while you take them as prescribed, but your bleeding pattern may be off for a cycle or two, ie., even while you are on the active pills, you may experience bleeding. Do not let that keep you from stopping/skipping pills. If the cycle is still irregular in 3 months, re-evaluate. ...Read more
