Daughter vomiting after 2 doses of 5mg Lexapro, taken with Xanax (alprazolam) & Zantac?Taking Xanax (alprazolam) &added Zantac last Wed. took LP 2x & vomiting.Anti-nausea drug?

Daughter vomiting after 2 doses of 5mg Lexapro, taken with Xanax (alprazolam) & Zantac?Taking Xanax (alprazolam) &added Zantac last Wed. took LP 2x & vomiting.Anti-nausea drug?

See doc: Since there is no age or indication given for this combination of drugs, it is impossible to give any meaningful advice. Since lexapro , zantac ,and xanax (alprazolam) are not absolutely essential to sustain life, one needs to find out whether the vomiting is from one of the drugs or a drug interaction. Need to consult doctor re. substitutes and not anti-nausea drug to counter a drug side effect. ...Read more

Can any of these supplements help me to ovulate after being off Depo-Provera provera (last shot 8-2-11)? Angelica sinensis, glycyrrhiza uralensis, viburnum opulus, folic acid (125%), apis mellifica, iron (100%), calcium (12%), rehmannia glutinosa, thyroid

There : There is no evidence that any of these supplements can stimulate ovulation. There are no studies that demonstrate that these will help. Most women who go off depo do start ovulating in the next few months. Try staying in bed for 15 minutes after intercourse with your knees up, and be sure you have optimal nutrition. If you don't get pregnant in the next several months then consulting a gynecologist would be reasonable. ...Read more

Are saprophytes harmed by UV light?
Could UV light decrease the decomposition rate in an apple?

Good questions: These are both interesting questions, but, since they don't directly involve human biology, perhaps HealthTap isn't the place to find answers. Mycologists who specialize in decomposition in rain forest might be able to help you with the first. Extension agents who deal with plant agricultural products might be able to help with the second. Or you can try an experiment on your own! ...Read more

Do any beta blockers act on Central Nervous System? Labetalol, Propranalol? What about Alpha-1 blockers?

Do any beta blockers act on Central Nervous System?  Labetalol, Propranalol? What about Alpha-1 blockers?

Yes, most of them: Beta blockers are either water soluble or lipid soluble. The latter cross the blood-brain barrier and act on the CNS (central nervous system). Atenelol and Naldolol are 2 water soluble ones that do not readily cross into the brain. Alpha blockers generally do act on the CNS, and the 2 most common side effects are hypotension and dizziness. ...Read more

Seems i get a hive or two within an hour of taking almost any pill. Overreaction of immune system? Allergy? Taking meds always triggers it.

Seems i get a hive or two within an hour of taking almost any pill. Overreaction of immune system? Allergy? Taking meds always triggers it.

See an allergist: This is a complex problem. Hives occur from numerous factors. It is unlikely that you are allergic to "everything". Cholinergic urticaria is provoked during sweating and may be induced by emotional stress or anxiety. The hives produced are typically smaller than classic hives, but would have to see these and examine you for accurate diagnosis. See an allergist and have this thoroughly evaluated. ...Read more

Does an adrenaline surge (from anxiety or exercise) when taking a non-selective B-blocker cause coronary vasoconstriction? Selective B1-blckr better?

Does an adrenaline surge (from anxiety or exercise) when taking a non-selective B-blocker cause coronary vasoconstriction?  Selective B1-blckr better?

Beta blockers: B blockers are used to treat angina caused by coronary disease, and they are effective. They reduce heart rate and the workload of the heart, including response to exercise. With very high norepinephrine conditions, eg. pheochromocytoma, blocking beta can cause unopposed alpha and raise BP. But that is a very rare condition. ...Read more

Sleepytime & tension tamer tea by celestial seasoning, any risks for high blood pressure or drug interactions?Ragweed allergy should I avoid chamomile

Sleepytime & tension tamer tea by celestial seasoning, any risks for high blood pressure or drug interactions?Ragweed allergy should I avoid chamomile

No problem: I have not found any ingredient in these herbal tea which would cause hypertension. As for ragweed allergy, you are actually allergic to the airborne pollen and not to the flower itself. Even if the chamomile pollen in the flower cross-react with ragweed, it will be highly unlikely to cause you allergic symptoms given that the chamomile would have been subjected to processing and heating . ...Read more

Can panic attack cause flashing zig zag vision and sudden spike in blood pressure?

Can panic attack cause flashing zig zag vision and sudden spike in blood pressure?

Ocular migraines!: Ocular migraines are a form of migraines that take place in the occipital cortex (part of the brain that interprets/controls vision). They lack the severe headache as common migraines. The symptoms are usually all or mostly visual and are typically described as flashing of light or ziz-zag lights in the vision. They usually last less than 30 minutes and affect the vision out of both eyes. ...Read more

Could visual snow dissipate when depersonalization leaves?

Could visual snow dissipate when depersonalization leaves?

Yes, depending: Visual changes are not unusual in depersonalization, and moreso derealization. If the symptoms come and go, then the visual snow effect may dissipate when the dissociative symptoms resolve. As usual, symptoms like this are found with other conditions, and a good medical evaluation is in order if it has not been done yet, before attributing this to depersonalization, or a related issue. ...Read more

Which is generally more effective? Pepcid or zantac (ranitidine). I heard zantac (ranitidine) you can build tolerance unlike pepcid. Is this true?

Which is generally more effective? Pepcid or zantac (ranitidine). I heard zantac (ranitidine) you can build tolerance unlike pepcid. Is this true?

Equivalent: ranitidine (Zantac) and famotidine (Pepcid) work very well for mild to moderate reflux and can be taken for up to 6 weeks before either starts to lose effect. Now for most people, 6 weeks is enough to allow the stomach to heal, and ongoing use is not needed. For those who require longer use of a daily reflux medication, omeprazole (Prilosec) or pantoprazole (Protonix) don't lose efficacy. ...Read more

I have blurry vision take belladonna alkaloids for ab pain, celiac.But vidion worse.Am 50.Take armour thyroid, dalmane (flurazepam).Whats cause?

Vision after 50: Loss of reading vision occurs in most people between 40 and 50 and is due to presbyopia. Reading glasses are in order. Belladonna used commonly for stomach problems exaggerates this phemenon. If your vision is blurry in the daistance as well you are probably far sighted and need distance glasses as well. Belladonna definitely makes this worse. ...Read more
