Avatar f tn i want to avoid being on anything that means I have to avoid foods, i have very little appetite due to my eating disorder and being on sertraline, I need medication that doesn't limit my diet EVEN MORE, as it makes things a bit tricky.
548642 tn?1266183252 Your dosage for Riba is 8 am, no anatacids or laxatives until after 10 am, or taken prior to 6 am. Grapefruits and grapefruit juice is a no-no on treatment. Also, vitamins w/calcium and/or fiber supplements need to be taken outside of the 2 hr window as well. At least this is what I've been told by my doctors. I think it's because it can affect the absorption of the meds.
4451049 tn?1387157037 I just traded Zithromax for Doxy as I was having some pretty serious issues on Zithromax. If it hadn't been for the serious FDA warnings and many similar reviews, I may have continued the medication but I'm not really sure as it got pretty rough. (I always take my abx at different times so if I do have some sort of reaction, I have a good idea which medication is the culprit.) Anyhow, I just can't help but wonder if it was actually a herx.

Avatar f tn My diet has been almost vegan, whole food, health food etc for many years and since I found out I had hep c I went 100% organic, including everything I put on my body(creams, soap, shampoo, etc) I do have a grapefruit every morning, krill oil and chlorella supplements. These I have been taking for a long time. I was thingking of stopping them before treatment.

Once for a Basal Ganglion Infarction, from which I recovered completely and once simply to be placed on Heparin due to a low INR. I have been ok since then. I would like to get rid of this valve. Are there any other options availible to me? Have there been any advances in cloned valves? As a young, active person I am not sure an animal valve is the answer.

Avatar n tn for the past week or so I have had sporadic runny nose / sneezing (bouts last about a half hour, much like allergic reaction) and my right tonsil has been a bit sore and firm. I am breastfeeding and my baby likes to touch my lips while nursing. Sometimes baby has a rough or jagged fingernail; I think baby may have irritated my skin and maybe introduced an infection. My sleeping is irregular but I usually get at least 6 hours per night.
Avatar n tn This forum has provided a post of drug interactions and the problem with coumadin is that it reacts with hundreds of drugs and some of them increase its effects and some decrease it effects. It is worth looking at the older posts to get that information and understand it. You job as patient is to monitor your INR or protime levels. If they are too low, it could cause a clot. If they are too high you could have bleeding.
Avatar n tn I every now and then get really bad itching, but not as much. The combo is acidophillus, garlic, grapefruit seed extract, Vitamin C, and echinacea. I don't know the exact mg, but just look it up. Something that recently happend to me was an abnormal result on a pap smear. Does anyone know if this can be from GSB? This is soemthing new, so I haven't had a chance to ask my gyno yet. Hope this helps.
