However, taking higher doses (like 1-2000 mg per hour) might be effective. The only significant side effect might be loose stools. You could get pH strips to monitor. See http://tinyurl. Com/paakaac

Due to lacking realistic application, specific clinical study to address the issue in this Q has been unclear to most doctors in practice. Hence, ask your doctor for concern

Confused: Not certain what you ask. Generally Keflex is effective for otitis. Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may also help. Probiotics will help to repopulate your gut with good bacteria that have been destroyed by the antibiotics. That may help the stomach burning.

Should womens vitamins change the color of urine?

They can.: Vitamin B12 (or multivitamins containing b12) can turn the urine a deep yellow, or even orange color depending on your hydration status. This is normal and simply represents excess of this vitamin being excreted into the urine. It should not change the turbidity (cloudiness) or odor of the urine, and should not cause any pain or discomfort.

How much of vitamin C one ciggarette use?

How much of vitamin C one ciggarette use?

25-100 mg: I've read that each cigarette depletes our bodies of 25 mg of vit c but am not sure where that number comes from. Many experts advise smokers consume at least 2000 mg of c/day, which is 100 mg per cig if you smoke a pack a day. This won't totally protect you from the immense damage caused by smoking but will reduce that damage somewhat. See http://www. Mcvitamins. Com/health%20opponents/smoking. Htm.
