Common Questions and Answers about Medicines you shouldn't take


Avatar f tn LOL you can still get rid of them just not down the toilet
181364 tn?1213287101 It shouldn't hurt the baby. The biggest problem with ibuprofin and aspirins occurs in the 3rd trimester. High doses of those meds can cause the heart ducts to close down prior to birth and bleeding issues with the baby because they are blood thinners. There are some studies out there that say high doses of aspirin/ibuprofin in first trimester can cause cleft palates and lower IQ's but those studies are considered controversial. Not enough research has been done at this point.
Avatar f tn Agree with all that has been stated. Really, any medication has that warning. Good luck and best wishes!

Avatar n tn Hi, I've been very confused about the issue of what medicines I can and cannot take together with/without daily synthroid. One "over-the-counter" medicine you should definately ask your Doctor about is any cold medicine containing ephedrine or pseudoephedrine.
988694 tn?1332363079 Yesterday I took Ibuprofen and I got the same reactions, this is something new to me I have never in my life had so many reactions to medicines. You gave me great news when you said that the itching went away once your levels stabilize, because there is someone out there who could get rid of at least one the reactions I’ve experienced with the thyroid medicines.
Avatar n tn But taking a few early in pregnancy shouldn't be a problem, although it isn't recommended. Most people take SOMETHING over the counter before they know they are pregnant. Tylenol is fine, by the way. Just don't overdo ANY medicine. Your doc will give you a list of "safe" meds to take in pregnancy. As for the spotting, of course mention that. If it becomes bright red, increases in amount, or is accompanied by abd. pain, call your doc right away.
Avatar m tn the problem im having with this one is i have frequent pvcs of the heart and i take atenlol and i know your suppose to take all meds 2 hours before or after taking sucralfate so thats what i did but i feel like its still affecting the absorption of the medicine because while im taking the sucralfate it feels like im not even taking the atenolol cause my heart is pounding and racing as if i didnt
429700 tn?1308011423 I can't comment on latent or active TB as I don't have any experience with that, but I do agree that you shouldn't be on a drug that is going to suppress a large part of your immune system if you do have TB (meaning Tysabri, I don't think Copaxone acts that way). But if Copaxone is working, then you don't have to think about Tysabri! While I think it is very exciting that we are going to have an oral medication, I also believe now is the time to sit back and see what happens.
Avatar n tn I have thought about taking the chinese herbs after the transfer but wasn't sure if it is safe to take traditional chinese medicines when using the Crinone 8% gel. Has anyone does this or know if it's ok.
Avatar f tn Hello, I have two small genital warts - one on the perineum and one just on the tip of the vagina. I visited a doctor and she gave me a medicines called Keratolytic Ointment (Kelytic 40%) which is composed of Salicylic acid BP 40% w/w. But I read in a health blog that salicylic acid should not be used on genital warts. My doctor prescribed it and I am using it twice a day. Is this medicine okay to use? If yes, How long will it take for the warts to go away? And how many doses should I use?
Avatar n tn I've been asked to take sudafed or other decongestants to try and help clear up a clogged ear issue, but was told it could take 4-6 weeks before you see any improvement. Is it safe to take sudafed for such a long period of time? Has anyone else had to do this? What was your experience?
Avatar f tn AMBIEN CR is a treatment option you and your healthcare provider can consider along with lifestyle changes and can be taken for as long as your provider recommends. Until you know how AMBIEN CR will affect you, you shouldn't drive or operate machinery. Be sure you're able to devote 7 to 8 hours to sleep before being active again. Sleepwalking, and eating or driving while not fully awake, with amnesia for the event, have been reported.
784382 tn?1376934640 None of us knows which medication is best for us. You could take Lexapro and it may not even work for you. So take the next step, fill the prescription, and go from there...only time will tell. Good luck.
990354 tn?1307136486 also tell your sister to look up if anyone has every died from taken adderall.don't mean to scare you. and as you know you shouldn't take something that was not giving to you by a doctor to take.And even Doctors these days give out these drugs like they are candy and many people use these drugs as if they can't do anything with out them. they should be useing Vitamin B6 AND B12 and Omega 3-6-9 these can help and dont have the bad side effects.
2127265 tn?1335336467 Yes she can take you off these meds. It happens all the time. Alot of doctors dont understand that once meds are stopped all he!! will break loose. I hope your new doctor can help you. We also have a pain management forum here at MH. I would copy and paste this and put it up in that forum also. They are very knowledgeable over there. . Keep us posted on how things turn out.
1979414 tn?1337806949 I know I shouldn't be as worried as I am since PACs aren't normally dangerous, but I'm terribly frightened that all these years of my heart beating extras or skipping and what not, that if later on down the road it will lead to an actual heart problem or worse :( what if my heart just wears out? I'm a healthy 21 year old and living in fear of having a heart attack or just dropping dead from heart failure or something.
162948 tn?1205256292 Here what i found out the longer you had the IUD in the longer it can take to become pregnant it can take anywhere from 18-39months to conceive. 90% of women conceived by the 39month just so you know this can be a long waiting game. Because I just found this website and may not beable to find it again you can e-mail at ***@**** with any questions please put IUD in the your subject line .
Avatar f tn But yes, you can take these together.
Avatar n tn An easy way is to have a Doula with you and your partner that day, she will tell you what to do to avoid some medical but not necessarily ptocedures like pain medicines. She will make to you some massages to deal with pain and contractions. But remember sometimes a c-section is needed. Don't induce your labor unless is completely necessarly!!! This is the first reason c-sections happens, it doesn't let your body work by its natural rhythm.
Avatar n tn How many percs did you take yesterday? unless you took alot and I do mean alot the tylenol shouldn't be the source, but again one never really knows. You could have something else going on with your gallbladder, stomach, etc... If the pain worsens and the vommitting persists you should really head to the ER. Be honest with them telling them everything that has gone on.
512442 tn?1216263100 Some of these creams are available without a prescription in your local drugstore, but you shouldn't just buy a cream if you think you have a yeast infection. It's important to see a doctor for your diagnosis, because if you actually have another type of infection the problem could get worse if it is not properly treated. Also, over-the-counter medicine should not be used by anyone who is under 12 or pregnant. Yeast infections can be annoying, especially if they happen regularly.
Avatar n tn Now, you will take the Provera and you will have a period after you finish taking all your pills. To fully answer your question though, if by some crazy chance you are pg, then Provera would cause a miscarriage. But again, being that you've been to the doctor and they tested you, it's about 99.9% sure you're not pg. Good luck!
Avatar n tn It is WAY more common then you think and it can only do good for you. YOU can choose your treatment. You can take the prescription which I personally found most effective or you can go the natural route which I am going to try tomorrow! Good luck and it'll go away, I promise!! It takes a little time. All of the medicines try to sell you on saying it will heal within a day or two but it rarely does. Give it time, relax & don't scratch! Also, I love the suggestion to take the acidophilus.
Avatar m tn Fmod, So did you take an ultrasound in those 90 days? If you did, what were the results? And also, when you say you do seem to be getting better slowly, how are you able to gauge that? Less discomfort/pain in general? If it is going away on its own without meds, why another round of doxy? I think the general treatment the urologists provide are antibiotics and after that they're basically clueless. I've been battling this for around 37 days now.

1337431 tn?1280959499 I don't think I left any out. You definitely need to follow the Doctor's instructions as you said and take the medicines as prescribed only! talk to your Doctor about an extended release formula and adding a breakthrough medication to that. I recently was changed from oxycodone to hydromorphone and it has been a miracle for me. I take Oxycontin and the hydromorphone fro breakthru. Since being on the hydromorphone I have not had to take the oxycontin.
1285651 tn?1319646029 there's a lot of stuff you shouldn't take. I honestly can't believe your dr said they're all ok either...
