I have a UTI and it usually gets severe for me. What OTC medication can I take? Is drinking water with apple cider vinegar recommended?

Water alone is best: Be sure you formally see ypue doctor if you have worsening UTI symptoms as this will need treatment to avoid a kidney infection or spread of bacteria to the blood stream. For OTC remedies, try AZO for pain that occurs with urination. Cranberry tablets are good as well due to a component of the fruit that makes it more difficult for bacteria to take hold in your urinary tract. Keep the water plain! ...Read more

How long will cocaine take to get out of my system if I did it last Friday? I'm detoxing w/vinegar water cranberry juice & I have a drug test this fri

Cocaine use: Cocaine has a very short half life of only several hours which means it is quickly out of your system. Because of this cocaine is highly addictive and I would recommend treatment if you are a regular user of this or other illegal drugs. Your drug test on the following should be negative if you do not use again. Good luck. ...Read more

Can I use 1 spoon of rice vinegar (ingredients: water, ethanol, rice)/day in my diet when I am on accutane?

Can I use 1 spoon of rice vinegar (ingredients: water, ethanol, rice)/day in my diet when I am on accutane?

What's really in it?: It's almost certain you signed an agreement, when you started on accutane, not to drink alcohol. Keeping a promise is a matter of principle. If the "rice vinegar" is a concoction that someone makes from real ethanol as a folk medicine, you're breaking a promise. However, most "rice vinegar" has the ethanol oxidized to acetic acid. That's harmless flavor, though there's probably no health benefit. ...Read more
