Chemical burns/react: Not a great idea unless you want your vagina to painfully swell closed. If you have stopped, this should not affect your fertility; however, I advise NEVER DOING THAT AGAIN. ...Read more

Can I take vit c, glutathione at 7.20am, medication (antibiotic, nocolut, painkillers) 11.20am, biotin, l-lysine 3.20pm n same medication at 8.20pm?

Can I take vit c, glutathione at 7.20am, medication (antibiotic, nocolut, painkillers) 11.20am, biotin, l-lysine 3.20pm n same medication at 8.20pm?

There are a number: Of unanswered questions here but I will go ahead and make a couple of comments. I don't think the timing of when to take your supplements is an issue. It would be unusual to have an antibiotic and painkillers that are only dosed twice a day, and if they were, they should be close to 12 hours apart. Nocolut, a progesterone, would only be once a day. Prescribing doctor (s) can clarify. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Can I still take my food supplements like vit. C, E atc. While under medication? I'm taking co-amoxiclav augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) now coz I have strep throat.

Can I still take my food supplements like vit. C, E atc. While under medication? I'm taking co-amoxiclav augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) now coz I have strep throat.

Should be ok: Taken supplements can be taken with antibiotics. Be cautious with Vit E as it can occasionally lead to a thinning of the blood. Always inform your MD what supplements you are taking before starting any medications. A balanced diet often makes supplements unnecessary.

Is it possible for vitamin C in orange juice and ascorbic acid to affect high blood pressure medication?

Is it possible for vitamin C in orange juice and ascorbic acid to affect high blood pressure medication?

Yes and no: Vit c in normal doses does not impact BP meds. Orange juice and other sweet liquids (all juice, soda, gatorade, etc) will increase your blood pressure - this will cause a relative decrease in the effectiveness of your meds. Liquids with over 10 cal/serving (except non-fat milk in moderation) are not good for you. Sweets in liquid form increase blood fats, belly fat & ultimately blood pressure. ...Read more

The armour interacts with both the iron and magnesium making the thyroid med less absorbed, so separate these vitamins from your armour by at least 4 hrs. The other major interaction is atenolol and niacin. Less cholesterol lowering effect and overlowering of bp. ...Read more

I happen to notice that after taking my hbp medication that the veins on my hand, opposite my palm, enlarge. Could there be a direct connection? Aging

Yes: This is a very astute observation. Medication to reduce blood pressure often contain what are called vasodilators which dilate blood vessels including the veins. This will result in more blood pooling in the veins which will be observed as the veins becoming enlarged. This pooling of blood helps to decrease the peripheral resistance of the body to decrease the blood pressure. ...Read more

Can enalapril cause veins to be more visible? I can clearly see veins on my palm, before medication I couldn't. Other veins on my arm are not dilated.

Can enalapril cause veins to be more visible? I can clearly see veins on my palm, before medication I couldn't. Other veins on my arm are not dilated.

No: Veins are thin walled, low pressure structures. They fill and become engorged when they're below heart level and they collapse when held above heart level. Try this: raise your hand above your shoulders for 30 seconds and see if you still see your veins? Enalapril will dilate arterioles (small arteries), especially in your kidney. It has no effect on veins. ...Read more

I have vitiligo patches on my lip and palms. (hereditary from maternal grand father) please suggest any good medication. Taking levamisole 100 mg daily.

Add corticosteroids: Given your genetic history, it is often important to know the underlying genetic alteration as it helps determine treatment effectiveness. Immune system modifers like levamisole have shown to be very effective. There are studies which show even more improvement with either topical corticosteroids or oral corticosteroids in addition to the levamisole. Also avoid proton pump inhibitors. ...Read more

Treatment options: Sometimes UV therapy or sunlight helps psoriasis lesions. That may be an option. But these areas would need to be exposed to the sun for this to work.

There are too many treatment options to list here. Consider this information:

I have pain on my right side shoulder. At times it becomes difficult to raise my hand. Would you kindly tell me whst it is and the medication. Thank y?

Rotator cuff: Start with some easy exercises to work the muscles of the shoulder blade that the rotator cuff attaches to. This will take some of the strain off the cuff. Use a rag and wipe a surface in the numbers of a clock face from the center up to 12:00 then back to center then 1:00 and so on. Start on a flat table top and gradually work your way up to a mirror or other vertical surface. Motrin may help. ...Read more

This: This is an interesting question. A group of neurologists at emory university several years ago studied the occurence of low testosterone in men with parkinsonism. It is unlikely that it is related to your medication but is correctable. Discuss this with your primary care doctor who will check you for levels of other hormones to determine whether there is pituitary gland dysfunction or just low testosterone. ...Read more
