15yo son w/Zoloft-induced mania; stopped Zoloft.  On Abilify (aripiprazole) 5mg & Trileptal 150mg bid for 3 wks. Want to titrate off.  Safe titration schedule?

I know you are asking for a safe titration schedule, but due to the nature of these medications I would personally recommend not do this on your own. ...Read more

Can patient undergo ovulation induction using gonal f (follitropin alfa) while using HRT mainly femoston 2/10 mg?

Effectiveness of cervadil vs pitocin (oxytocin) induction?

Effectiveness of cervadil vs pitocin (oxytocin) induction?

Depends on cervix: Before induction your current cervical exam is used as a determinant for which mode of induction. Cervidil is most likely used when the cervix is less soft, dilated, and effaced (thinned out), and more posterior, as it increases prostaglandins release to stimulate dilation, thinning and softening. Those who are already dilated and effaced benefit more from pitocin (oxytocin). ...Read more

Rxd topamax, xanax, abilify (aripiprazole). Topa induces 3a4. I love white grapefruit juice, which inhibits 3a4. Is this an unsafe combo esp with the topamax..?

Rxd topamax, xanax, abilify (aripiprazole). Topa induces 3a4. I love white grapefruit juice, which inhibits 3a4. Is this an unsafe combo esp with the topamax..?

Confusing: Topomax is a weak inducer of cyp 3a4, and maybe c19. Your biggest issue here is the grapefruit juice, which inhibits 3a4 quite significantly. This could increase the effects of both xanax and abilify (aripiprazole). Either you need to stop the grapefruit juice or drink it at a constant level. Please inform your prescribing psychiatrist about this. ...Read more

However, it is widely used in folk medicine topically to stop bleeding in wounds & apparently works quite well for this. Turmeric contains vitamin k, which supports coagulation. It has many other constituents, some of which obviously help stop bleeding & are thus coagulating, but not sure if they've been identified yet. ...Read more
