Taking Citalopram (20mg) and zyprexa (olanzapine) (2.5mg) and have sulphur smelling gas every night. Eating more, can a change in diet cause this bad smelling gas?

Taking Citalopram (20mg) and zyprexa (olanzapine) (2.5mg) and have sulphur smelling gas every night. Eating more, can a change in diet cause this bad smelling gas?

Side effects?: I don't believe that any of those meds are the direct culprit of your discomfort. At the same time, since Zyprexa (olanzapine) increases the craving for carbohydrates and hyperphagia (eating excessively), this med can be a factor. Many people on medications that might cause a metabolic syndrome are advised to consult with nutritionists to solve the problem. I suggest to consider this recommendation. ...Read more

Family & I contracted scabies from our dog. Can we use sulphur soap to help get rid of them? How long should it stay on in the shower? Safe for 1yr old?

Family & I contracted scabies from our dog. Can we use sulphur soap to help get rid of them? How long should it stay on in the shower? Safe for 1yr old?

Yes, but only kills: Live mites. Animal scabies mite does not reproduce on the human host, so a few days should take care of it. For human to human scabies, the sulfur soap will not kill the eggs, so the treatment will have to be repeated for several weeks. I recommend pymethrin lotion applied overnight and repeated in a week. It is safe for infants over a year old. See the label on one product: http://www. Cuticareproducts. Com/scabies_treatments_s/1820.htm ...Read more
