  • I really believe we are missing the mark on my 8 year old son. He has been sick'like since he was 4 months old. He is being treated for ADHD/Aspergers/Allergies, but he is NO better. Now, he has petechiae around his eyes.

    I'm at a loss. He has been cleared of Pediatric RA. Now what?

    I find it interesting that your child has both ADHD and bleeding both which are linked to Vitamin K defeciency. I would have your child tested for Vitamin K, D, Zinc, iron, hemoglobin defects like sickle cell, and a great history and physical from a doctor who takes the time to check for other sources. These are blood tests by the way. He should also have ALCAT allergy testing for foods.

Can you answer these questions (what is this?):

  • Hydroxyurea - are metabolites active or inactive in urine ?
    Concerned about the excretion of hydroxyurea in urine. I have read that the meabiolites are active and up to 40 percent of the drug that is excreted is done as a Unchanged drug. So does this mean that the 40 percent that is excreted in the urine is 100% hydroxurea ? If so that is concerning, especia ...

  • Does claritin have an anticoagulant effect?
    I thought I had conquered my nosebleed problems with saline nasal mist and saline nasal gel, but now I've started on Claritin (actually Walitin, Walgreen's knockoff) for an unrelated reason and the nosebleeds have started again. Is this because of the Claritin or just a coincidence?

  • Has any one been getting nosebleeds from taking this medication
    starting getting nosebleeds in about three weeks from starting this medication.Had a sever nosebleed today at work thy had to call EMTS just to get it stop.
