Not good practice.: You must follow your doctor's advice in how to take your medication so that you can reach a steady state which will then control the symptoms of depression. You can't go up and down as you want it because you will not get a stable blood level. Most likely the weight gain is still due to depression which can either increase or decrease your appetite.Please go back to your doctor to remedy this. ...Read more

My doctors told me cannabis is the reason my ck levels keep going up and down. I can't find any evidence of this online. Is it possible?

Not likely but--: Chronic cannabis used regularly is not good. I suspect you mean Creatinine phosphokinase levels are up.
You need a serum myoglobin and be referred to someone in rheumatology or neurology. By the way, I have had patients have CPK levels rise. But when asked many have had a heavy workout that day or the previous day. Do your levels match increased physical activity. This is normal! ...Read more

Did my frozen transfer day before yesterday. Is going up and down the stairs in medium speed could harm the embryo? What exercises am allowed to do

Beginner level yoga can be a great form of exercise and can help with any stress you have as well. FYI:There's a lot of free yoga through On Demand, Hulu, Youtube ...Read more

My TSH is low again iam hypre dr want to treat me in 6wks with radiation iodine. Why am I going up and down. Is this rare? Help in understanding?

Maybe active areas,,: Your TSH normally goes down in response to the thyroid making more thyroid hormone, which can be due to nodules there that make more than they should. That may be why the radioactive iodine is used, to destroy a possible nodule. You're also on levothyroxine or thyroid hormone and you may be getting too much and it may lower tsh. Talk to your dr. About the best dosage. Good luck. ...Read more

Truth be told, hepatitis c is a chaotic system, more or less active at any time like the weather. I'm going to assume that you're not taking other meds; even an Ibuprofen tablet or two can raise it. I wish you the best and hope that new work in hepatitis c care will help you. ...Read more
