Nothing to do: Etoricoxib (Arcoxia) is fairly long lasting, which is why it needs to be taken only once a day. It is entirely gone from the system in a few days after the last dose, certainly within a week. Nothing can be done to speed it up. Any symptoms beyond a week or so probably are not due to the drug. ...Read more

Cymbalta (duloxetine) weight gain: Cymbalta (duloxetine) can cause weight gain in several different ways. It can increase your appetite, reduce your sense of satiety when you eat, induce sedation you then attempt to manage by eating more, or improve a depression that caused you to initially lose weight. Your weight loss will depend on why you gained weight. For example, if it was from battling sedation, you can begin to lose weight immediately. ...Read more

Are analgesics and antibiotics considered systemic? I am being asked what body systems are involved with certain medications for my homework and I cannot find these categories in my body-systems material. Can you help?

Doxycycline got me constipated. Will I start pooping regular when the medication is out of my system? Been 4 days not taking it and I poop very little
It's not the doxy: There are other, more common, causes of constipation - so something else I think is to blame. Besides, doxycycline has a relatively short half-life (that's why you have to take it TWICE a day)...so after 4 days it should be out of your system. I recommend increasing fluid intake-such that your urine becomes clear/light yellow. FIBER in the form of fruits and veggies will help. AVOID low fiber food ...Read more
No Such Agent Exists: We are open systems from both energy & body structure viewpoints.

If toxins are a problem, best approach is to avoid them, few antidotes. ...Read more

Accidentally drank my husband's water w/ vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) in it. When will the medication be completely out of my system so I can nurse again?
That's a tough one,: Because there are so many variables related to the body size & function of the person taking Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) & it depends on the dose. You may want to give your pharmacist some details to get more individualized information, but the average time for the metabolite dextroamphetamine in a 70 mg. Dose of Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) to be completely eliminated is about 2 & a half days to "under 3 days". ...Read more
What medication can I get to boost my immune system as I often get sick...I don't have any allergies but also im not picking up any weight even though I eat a lot?
No. Not that simple.: Also, many "non-medical" supplements, foods, herbs, and techniques are claimed to "boost" the immune system, but none have been proven effective. The immune system is complex, and "boosting" it to make it act stronger is not always a good thing. In conditions like arthritis, thyroid disease, diabetes type 1, lupus, eczema, etc..., the immune system is over-acting and damaging the patient's organs. ...Read more

How long does it take a ten day course of Augmentin 875-125 to leave your system? I finished the medication seven days ago.
Definitely out: The medication has quite a short half-life, which is why it is taken 2x a day- since the first dose in the morning wears away, then you need a second dose. Generally we think of 5x the half-life as a 'complete' elimination of the drug - so you are well beyond that... it would have been totally gone after a couple days. If you're having symptoms of some kind though, you should check with a doc. ...Read more
