Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can green tea help with gallbladder symptoms?
    Had gallbladder issues for a couple of years. Had a test at hospital. Don't have stones and it is not diseased. Just lazy and not working all the time. Most of the time I can handle it if I watch my diet. Lately bothers me all the time. I also have diarrhea. Not every day but more than I like.
  • Can i take reglan and allopurinol together
    I need to know if i can take reglan and allopurinol together. I have nasea and uric acid problems and i am tierd of feeling like vomiting and i dont know what to take for nasea and wont interract with allopurinol thank you.
  • Does naproxen sodium help phimosis?
    I have phimosis and don't know what caused it. I'm diabetic and I was told this is more likely to happen to diabetics but I have been diabetic for 20 years and have never had this before.
  • My mom is 88. she takes lexapro in the evening. she wakes up hallucinating. it's starting to get to her. what should i try for her?
    My mom has been taking Lexapro for about 2 1/2 to 3 months. She was taking it in the morning and her therapist felt it was making her drowsy. I began giving it to her before bed, and I believe that is when she started waking up during the night with hallucinations. I'm not sure if they are vivid dreams that carry over when she awakens, or if she wakes up and sees visions. I do not want to change her meds, if possible. This combination of Aricept, Namenda and Lexapro have allowed her to be sharper mentally than she has in a number of years. Except for the hallucinations, it's been nothing short of amazing. Please help. Thank you
  • I have an enlarged liver...could i use buprenorphine?

You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • Allop├╝rinol and achilles tendinitis
    I take allopurinol on a purely prophylactic basis, as my father has got gout and kidney stones. Since three months I suffer from achilles tendinitis; I put it down to overload; I am rather heavy and play a lot of tennis, besides moving a lot at work. As always, I tried to "walk through" my weight associated problems, but it did not get any better. Non-compliant, I stopped taking allopurinol for the last three days, and, surprise surprise, the pain is quickly abating, in spite of playing prolonged matches the last three days. I remembered that gyrase inhibitors (e.g. ciprofloxacin) predispose to achilles tendon rupture, a fact that I was personal witness with a female player at our club. So I speculate on a causal link between allopurinol and achilles tendinitis
  • Allopurinol for 6-mp metabolism to 6-tgn
    I began taking Allopurinol 100mg to help metabolize the Purinethol I have been taking for 6 years for Crohn's disease after a blood test revealed my 6-MMP metabolites were too high and 6-TG were too low. Several published studies show Allopurinol to be helpful for "non-preferential metabolizers" like me, to help shunt the metabolic pathway towards therapeutic 6-TG.

    After 1 week of Allopurinol, I had to discontinue the drug due to debilitating nausea, which was worst in the morning.
  • Ear pain from allopurinol 100mg (1 response)
    I have just been prescribed 100mg Allopurinol.
    1 a day.
    I am in my second day of taking these tablets.
    I have begun to get get a sudden pain in my ear.
    I have never in all my years have ever had such a pain.
    I know the only change that has happened around me is taking these tablets.
    I have stopped taking these and am awaiting my next appt with my GP.
    I do take Arcoxia with paracetemol for pain relief.
  • Bone pain localized to poison ivy rash
    I am having a moderate to strong reaction to poison ivy exposure. I have a localized rash with blistering, swelling and inflammation similar to cellulitis. The rash has been progressing for about a week. The blisters are not weeping or oozing. The area is cleaned daily with neem oil soap. Coincident with the rash, I have a persistent ache/pain in my lower forearm, wrist and hand that is responding weakly to Aleve and pretty much unresponsive to acetaminophen.
  • Aleve and erythema multiforme
    I started exercising (walking outside)and due to sore knees I started taking Aleve. Within days I developed blisters on my chest, back, face, and inside my mouth. Mouth blisters were severe enough that I could only consume liquids. After 7-10 days the blisters scabbed over. This occurred three times within a two month period, the last time I had blisters around my eyes with physician concern of eye involvement but it did not happen. During the second round I went to a dermatologist and he determined that I had Erythema Multiforme and the cause was either a strep throat or Aleve. A second opinion determined it was Aleve partly because strep throat is not normally associated with EM. I have stopped taking Aleve and am EM free for 15 months.
