low platelet's with hep c
I'm looking for advice on how to keep my platelet's stable or increase them, does anyone have any helpful information? please!! ## my platelet count is at 79 and I'm trying to increase it or keep it stable so I can start the Hep C Sovaldi and ribavirin treatment does anyone have any words of wisdom for me please ## Hi Dee, According to an article by, there are actually many nutrient dense foods which can naturally increase the levels of your platelet (thrombocyte) count; namely leafy green vegetables such as kale and parsley. More specifically, some important nutrients that are often touted for their use in achieving a higher platelet count consist of Folate (vitamin B-9), B12, Calcium, Potassium, and Zinc. So perhaps a quality whole-food multivitamin and mine...

I had jaw surgery 10 days ago and for 4-5 days I've been taking oxycodone 5/325 because my incision opened and it is so unbearabley painful. Im Supposed To Take 1 to 2 5x325 Oxycodone every 4 hours. The Pharmasist for some reason Gave Me Hydrocodone 5/325 ...How Many Hydrocone 5/325 Equal 2 5/325 of oxycodone. SAVE ME PLEASE ## Hi, Lindsey, how are you doing? If your pharmacy gave you the wrong medication, you should really go back and let them know, so they can provide you with the correct prescription. They aren't allowed to just change it on a whim, that would require your doctor's approval. And it would take 7.5mgs of the Hydrocodone to equal each 5mg of Oxycodone, so 15mgs to equal 10 of the Oxycodone. The main issue is that you'd also be increasing the amount of Ac...

Sprintec Skipping Period
I want to skip my period. Can I skip the white pills on sprintec and start a new pack? ## Yes, unless your doctor has told you not to do so, it is perfectly safe to do this, occasionally. Many women use oral contraceptives to skip having their menstrual cycle on special occasions, or other times when it would just be inconvenient. There are even some on the market now that allow you to only have 3 or 4 menstrual cycles a year. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I don't really think you should do that until talking to a doctor, just to be sure.... My doctor is having me skip the placebo pills for two months then taking it the third month so that I'll have a period every three months. You don't want to mess anything up, so talk to a doctor first. ## I have just star...

light green capsule Roche
Light green capsule with Roche on both sides and they're underlined. No numbers or anything just solid light green. ## Hi Alex, Unfortunately I haven't come across any specific details on a capsule that fit this description, but, knowing who the manufacturer is (Roche labs) it sounds to me like your best bet would be to contact them directly regarding your inquiry, in hopes that this is truly one of their own products and not some sort of counterfeit. Roche's Patient Resource Center for questions relating to their medication can be reached at: EMAIL: PHONE: 650-467-0811 or 877-436-3683 Please do post back though if you happen to find out any clues or information on what this is!

ibs irritable bowel syndrome and Crohns
Does anyone know how to make safe parasitic worms to treat these? I need details - i know it requires a pig? {edited for privacy} - Please do not lecture me about the legality and dangers. I just need honest scientific advice on how to grow these, clean and sterile.... Thanks a lot for your help - Sally ## Hi Sally, The concept of using parasites to treat IBS and Crohns is new to me and I'm curious as to where/how you first came to know about this type of treatment modality? I will say that in my honest opinion, nothing about using parasites (especially from swine) sounds safe at all. It actually makes more sense to me to supplement with probiotics and digestive enzymes that are notoriously known to be beneficial for your gut instead of something that's not (i.e. parasites). And...

Bariatric rny revision
Has any one having rny bariatric surgery looked into revision from malnutrition? If so, what procedure did you go with?#10yearsout# ## Hi Liz, By "revision from malnutrition" do you mean to say that malnutrition caused the obesity and subsequent need for Roux-en-Y (rny) gastric bypass? Not to sway off topic, but if that is the case, my thoughts would probably be more in line with making lifestyle changes to your diet and exercise habits; not only that but also taking on a new mindset that you can hold yourself accountable to in order to help you stick with your weight loss goals until you reach them would likely be beneficial as well. Taking on something new like changing your diet may seem drastic at first, but so does surgery for that matter. It just sounds to me like you may ...

Dizziness/Spaciness and general discomfort in first week on Eliquis
I have started Eliquis for the second time (gave up on first try after 4 days). I'm now on day 4 and continuing to feel the same strange symptoms: dizzy, spacey (mind-wise) and last night was wide awake because of them. I want to know if this gets better any time soon or should I bail and try another blood thinner?

G 3722...pill actually looks skinner than my usual xanex....r these fake?
hi,.i have some ...what I thought to be...xanex pills. they r rectangular with three lines on BOTH sides & the imprint G 3722 on one side.....the problem is that they seem skinnier than other alorazapan pills...prescription or not...& they are lightweight, & have NO bitter taste. taste at all. are these fake? ## I have also found the same thing. They have the same print G 3722 on one side and black on the other. However these ones I just got are noticeably thinner than the G 3722 bars I have gotten in the past. I wish I could post the side by side pic to show everyone. These thinner bars are also wavy/ V shaped on the blank side, with its highest point in the center of the bar. They are also extremely hard to cut or smash/grind into a powder. The other "fat...
