Hi doctors, what is the best treatment for motion sickness that is non drowsy? Would you recommend stugeron?

Hi doctors, what is the best treatment for motion sickness that is non drowsy? Would you recommend stugeron?

Transderm Scopolomin: I am a big advocate of using transdermal scopolamine for motion sickness. It is very effective and relatively non toxic unless you get some on your hands and rub your eyes. It doesn't cause drowsiness. Stugeron, or cinnarizine, is not available in the US or Canada and causes drowsiness.

Best wishes. ...Read more

Hi Dr, I feel dizzy and lightheaded with motion sickness while lying on left side, these symptoms are similar to BVVP, can you recommend me treatment.

Positional Vertigo: For now over the counter motion sickness medications like dramamine (dimenhydrinate) to control the nausea.

20 year-old woman with 2 painful left popliteal lumps, "inconclusive" x-ray and MRI, leading to difficulty standing or walking.....?

20 year-old woman with 2 painful left popliteal lumps, "inconclusive" x-ray and MRI, leading to difficulty standing or walking.....?

Excisional Biopsy: Since the X-rays and MRI are inconclusive, it would be prudent to have one of the lumps removed for pathological evaluation (excisional biopsy). It is likely a benign process, like an angiolipoma, a neurfoibroma, a neurilemoma or a Masson's tumor, but a pathological diagnosis is your best option at this time. Plus, removing the lump will likely make the pain resolve. Good luck. ...Read more

Tkr 3 months ago and formed severe scar tissue. Range of motion 87° @ 8 weeks. Manipulation did not work. Now 100° @ 13 weeks with spa therapy. Should I have scar tissue removed now?

Tkr 3 months ago and formed severe scar tissue. Range of motion 87° @ 8 weeks. Manipulation did not work. Now 100° @ 13 weeks with spa therapy. Should I have scar tissue removed now?

Keep with it: 100 degrees is ok. It is more important to have full extension. Whatever you had pre-surgery for flexion is often what you have post surgery +10-15 degrees. So if you had 100 degrees of flexion prior to surgery don't expect more than 110 or so. Don't get more surgery if you don't have to. ...Read more
