Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Can a patient that takes prograf and imuran can also take black cohosh suplements ? (1 answer)
    I am a kidney transplant patient, I had my transplant 4 years ago and because of my previous kidney function, now I have early menopause symptoms like, severe vaginal dryness, night sweats, low libido and so on... So i would like to know if i can take some of these herbs to help me out. Black Cohosh, Macafem, and wild yam.
  • I have there any cure for it.antibiotics do not there any chance that imuran will help or something else?help please! (1 answer)
    Since I was 16 years old I strugle with Ulcerative Colitis.Year and a half ago my colon was removed.So, now I have J-pouch and it seems that colon removement caused severe pouchitis.When I use antibiotics it seems that everything is good,but when i stop using them ,everything gets even worse.

    I tried low dose of corticosteroides,colifoam but nothing seems to be working,so I am desperate.

    Now for a two and a half months I have been using Imuran(Azathioprine).Can you tell is it going to help me, or should I try something else.

    Please!Can somebody help me?

    Thank you in advance.
  • Is the a correlation with mycobacterium and myasthena gravis? (2 answers)
    I was exposed to a leper colony for about five months while in Vietnam. Many of the lepers died with open wounds and I actually wore some of their beads and trinkets around my neck. I slept on their beds and drank from their water source. Out of the clear blue almost 40 years later with no indication at all I came down with Myasthenia Gravis. Thyroid plays no role in my disease, so that has been rules out.

    Does the Mycobacterium in Leprosy have any possible correlation with me getting Myasthenia Gravis?

    Thank you.
  • I have a 20cm hiatal hernia needing surgery could azathrioprine tablets cause it?
    been taking azathrioprine tabl 50mg 3 times daily for several years
