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

  • Does mucinex guaifenesin help treat fibromyalgia?
    I have tried so many treatments for fibromyalgia. I am going to try guaifenesin next . Any advice would be appreciated.

  • Could this drug cause periodontal bone loss, bone loss around teeth
    Do you suffer from periodontal bone loss or periodontal disease, or bone loss around teeth after taking this drug? Are your sodium levels low after taking this drug? I am a dentist and keep my teeth plaque free, but have had periodontal bone loss for which, I believe, must be drug related.

  • 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?
