Has anyone used the new SUPREP kit before a colonoscopy? Would like any comments about taste, ease or side effects. Thanks! ## The Suprep kit contains sodium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and potassium sulfate, it is used for bowel preparation. It basically works as a laxative. I can't think that combo would taste very well, though I have never used it. The most common listed side effects are: cramping, nausea, vomiting and abdominal discomfort. Does anyone else have anything to add? ## Sulfates have a bitter taste, hence the development of PEG bowel cleansing products without sulfate such as Nulytely or Trilyte. Having said that, Suprep contains both Sucralose and flavoring agents, so it may not taste as bad as has been suggested. It still involves the ingestion of 3 quarts of water, ...

effient and insects
I've been on Effient for eight months. Every morning I would get up bleeding from several places- typically on my arms, legs and chest. There would be a characteristic 'cut' a few inches long with tiny dots in the cut. Over time I determined insects were the cause. I place iodine on the incision and tiny bugs so small that as to be barely noticeable come out. They seem to be laid in the wound by larger bugs that look like a grain of ground coffee. No one else in the family shares this problem; I sleep in the same bed as my wife, etc. The larger bugs have skeletons and can be crushed. Sometimes I can see them 'jump' like a flea. For some reason, they're only interested in MY blood- it's like coke to them. Having the house sprayed by an exterminator helped but ...

propan with iron multivitamins
is profan vit. is effective? ## Really, the effectiveness depends on what you are using it for. If you are using it as a vitamin supplement, then yes. However, many of these products are claimed to help treat a lot of conditions and this has really never been proven. Propan with Iron contains 25mgs Buclizine, 80mgs Iron, 10mgs Nicotinamide, 10mgs B1, 5mcgs B12, 1mg B2 and 5mgs of B6. It is listed in the Indian drug databases as helping to improve the appetite. Side effects may include: nausea and drowsiness. Do you have any other questions? ## Good day, im Christian,i would like to ask if what "1 cap bid" means is? ## does taking propan and myra 400e at the same time bad? ## 1 cap bid means 1 capsule twice a day ## Is it safe to take Propan vitamins even when you're breastfe...

Keppra Experience
I need help in dealing with the anxiety and depression that comes with Keppra. I would like to know how others have dealt with it. ## Fii I was only only on Lamotrigine a few years ago and liked it but it caused massive insomnia, sometimes staying awake up for three days. My mind was noticeably clear and even tempered the times when I didn‘t suffer from insomnia. My Dr. switched me to Keppra (not the generic Levetiractam; I think it was 2000 mg a day). In a short time, I became very angry and told the people I worked with to ignore my rage. I almost got arrested one night. Went back to Lamotrigine and a lower dose of Levetiracetam. I’ve been depressed and my Dr. gave me Mirtazapine (worked up to 45 mg) to take at bedtime for the depression and it worked but over time it has ...

cymbalta / vyvanse / xanax = increased anxiety??
I am 34 years old and have been taking anti-depressants for about 3 years. I started on Lexapro, which quit working after a year and a half. While I was taking Lexapro I was experiencing horrible exhaustion (I have a disabled child and work full-time...VERY stressful), so my doctor put me on Vyvanse. She also gave me an Rx for Xanax .25mg to take as needed, which I RARELY took (usually only at night to relax). Last spring my stress level went through the roof and my doctor switched me from the Lexapro (which wasn't working anymore) to Pristiq 50mg, which was AWFUL (Horrible, vivid nightmares). I took that for one month before switching to Cymbalta 30mg. I have never liked taking the Vyvanse because it's an amphetamine. During the summer I began experiencing horrible anxiety and ...

kera gro hair
I don't have any money for anything but for diapers wipes and stuff my twins needs,My hair keeps falling out and I need this so my hair will grow back I know that you need to make a profit but please will you guys help me out ## Hi Maile, I'm not sure what you're talking about as far as making a profit goes, but this site does not manufacture or sell any products. It's simply a platform for people with medical, health and wellness inquiries to communicate with one another. On that note, Kera-veda hair grow oil is only $12.95 on amazon by Lotus Herbals.... so I don't see how pricing could be too much of an issue in this day and age?
