Diuretic and SSRI: Those complaints don't sound related, so I would suggest a work up of both symptoms and treatment of them separately. Diuretics are for high BP but also excess fluid. SSRI's are for anxiety and depression.

Managed BP with medication. Alternate Fasting daily. Exercise regularly:HIIT. How risky/difficult to water fast for 2/3 days? Do I need medical help?

Water Fasting: As a nutritionist I support and believe in the benefits of transient fasting and caloric restriction. Both have been shown to increase life expectancy across species due to reduced metabolic demand. I do not support fasts that trigger a starvation metabolic stress response. You need nutrient calories and your brain needs glucose! A healthy 12 hour fast...stop eating at 8pm and breakfast at 8am! ...Read more

How many time should a healthy adult, who drinks a lot of water go to the toilet. When do you know for sure its constipation and you need medication?

Hard difficult BM: Constipation is a hard, difficult, painful bowel movement. Drinking a lot of water helps but so would more fiber in your diet. The frequency of the bowel movement is not as important as the consistency and pain associated with the bowel movement. A easily passed bm every three days would not be considered constipation by most mds. ...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

Need Rx if new: If a new infection with severe symptoms (multiple sores, sore throat, swollen nodes, etc), you need Rx ASAP with an anti-herpes drug like valacyclovir. If recurrent cold sores, it's too late; they'll heal soon. You can transmit to a partner by kissing or oral sex, if s/he hasn't previously had the same herpes type (probably HSV1). Transmission risk highest during outbreak, low risk at other times. ...Read more

Good morning. I have been using Amaloretic for over 4 years due to water retention. I am retaining water with the medication. What should I do?

It is important to: Recognize that the fluid balance in your body is an equilibrium. If there is excess fluid in your body you are either taking in too much or excreting too little. The medicine will help with excretion but intake remains an issue. In addition if you have excessive sodium ingestion this will also cause you to retain. Reduce your fluid intake and sodium intake and retention should resolve. ...Read more

Yellow...: Yellow is one of the normal colors of urine. However, there are many shades of yellow. If worried about changes in color, one can visit his primary care doctor. Also, just because one's urine is yellow, doesn't mean there aren't other issues going on regarding one's health. That's just because yellowness doesn't have much specific meaning. ...Read more
