I'm having stinky brown liquid discharge while having medication with my tuboovarian complex. Normal?
No.: Your question lacks some detail, such as what precisely your "tubo-ovarian complex" consists of. If you are taking medication for an infection which has ascended from the vagina to the fallopian tubes, you can expect a discharge if not properly treated. There is resistance among different bacteria to drugs used to treat sexually transmitted diseases, so you should return to your doctor for an exam. ...Read more

What form of medication or supplement gets absorbed fastest? I was thinking maybe chewable tablets or liquid gel capsules.
Varies: It depends upon what medication you are talking about. In general, however, fastest absorption is the sublingual route, where the medication is placed under the tongue. Very few medications, however, are designed to be taken this way. Next fastest are usually the gel caps. Chewables actually have about the same absorption as solid pills. If wondering about a specific medication, ask pharmacist! ...Read more

Knowledgeable friend: Most "cold" medications have been studied thoroughly over decades. They were often routinely prescribed to any kid at almost any age. However, we now feel that they have little to offer any kid under age 12, if then. There may be a specific reason this was offered, but sometimes these are given as a reflex, to reward you for coming in. I don't use them, asthma or not at that age. ...Read more

AtLeast It'sNot Hair: It would be helpful to know what types of medication you've tried (pills, creams, lotions, gels, tinctures, powders, ointments, abrasives, steam, axle grease, flame thrower, chlorosulfonic acid...). Also what kind of work you do. Are your hands wet a lot? Or are they dry, chapped and cracked in between those "pimples." And are they really pimples or little fluid-filled bumps? If so check with your doctor. ...Read more
