I took one 8 mg strip Saturday and another 8mg strip Sunday night at 11pm how long will it be til I can feel my opiate medication?

24-48 hours: I assume you are asking about Suboxone. You should wait at least 24-48 hours before taking opiate medication. Suboxone is a potent binder of the opioid mu receptor. It prevents other opiates from binding. You can accidentally overdose yourself by taking more opiate in an effort to get the relief you want from your medicine. Talk to your doctor and be careful. ...Read more

My son 1& half years took hot porridge & got some wounds on the lips. Which medication should I get him because am worried he may be with wounds inside?

Consider function: If he is able to drink fluids without difficulty the mouth injury is likely minimal. If troubled, have him checked. There is no specific meds to use. The saliva has some enzymes that suppress germs so most of these exposures self heal.Ibuprofen as a general pain measure, chilled applesauce or Popsicle pieces are sometimes helpful.

I'm 49 years old and I'm on bp medication every time I use the medication I get so hot and sweat but when I stop using it I feel okay, I was wondering?

BP: You may want to check your blood pressure after taking the medicine. There is a chance it may be lowering the blood pressure excessively which may be causing these symptoms perhaps especially when you stand up. If that is the case you may need to adjust the dosage or if you still cannot tolerate this potential side effect then maybe change the medicine altogether. Talk to your primary care doctor. ...Read more

Hello, I took a diet pill now im feeln vry anxious n head is hot, my body is cold, what's d best way to get rid of this feelin or flush out d medication?

Don't take any more: Many diet pills are full of stimulants like caffeine (in an attempt to increase your metabolism) such that you end up feeling anxious. Others are full of laxatives to make you poop more than usual. However, none of the diet pills that are dietary supplements really work (you'll see FDA warning label).

Since I've been on antidepressants I'm wondering whether the medication could be why I sweat and get hot so easily? I can never cool down either.

Since I've been on antidepressants I'm wondering whether the medication could be why I sweat and get hot so easily? I can never cool down either.

Possible: I'm guessing you're taking a tricylic antidepressant, less commonly prescribed today, which can cause these side effects. Discuss with your prescribing doctor to review side effects and consider a dose or med change. All antidepressants have side effects which should be minimal at the right dose. Meantime drink lots of water and avoid direct sun if feeling overheated. Hope this helps. ...Read more
