Hiv+ my 2yr old found a bottle of iviltrim suspension, half 50ml he drank it, I gave him glass of fresh milk .... This happened an hour ago. Please help though he tested negative..... I'm using it for my 10 week old little girl. ## Hello, Monza! How are you? The FDA lists Ilvitrim as an antibiotic that is used to treat or prevent bacterial infections, one doesn't have to be HIV positive to take it. Thus, there are no worries there.

I took this drug in the 1970's while pregnant. Am looking for the side effects to the babies. Drug has been off the market for many years. Not sure on correct spelling. Used for nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. Thank you for any help you can send me. Sincerely, Dana Jones. ## Dana, The drug Bendictine you are referring to was reported to cause birth defects in some cases. But a similar drug is prescribed today and it's called Diclectin. Funny how some people will say to stay away from something while others say it's perfectly safe. I think it's a matter of speaking to at least several physicians and following your intuition, as far as what feels right for you and who you trust. The drug Diclectin is a combination of Doxylamine (an antihistamine) and Vitamin B6. A go...

Hair loss - using Livifem
2 Replies RSS
I'm on Livifem now for 7 months and have noticed a massive hair loss. I have decided to stop using it because this is very traumatic to me. Will my hair grow back again? And how long will it take for it to be normal again? Thank you ## The FDA classifies this as a hormonal supplement, so yes, it can cause hair loss as a side effect, along with headache, nausea, irritability, mood swings, weight gain and PMS-like symptoms. And yes, the hair loss should stop and your hair should fill back, after stopping it, but it may take a month, or two, before you see improvement. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for that confirmation. Im so confused what on earth should a woman do to be normal again. I have no idea what to use next that doesn't have a side effect. Regards

iron infusion side effects concern

I had my first iron infusion on Monday (it is now Sunday) as I am severely iron deficient. I was not informed that there would be any side effects by my doctor or hematologist.

Is this normal? I've been to the doctor and he just gave me anti nausea medication which hasn't worked. I'm freaking out. I've just wasted a whole week in bed and still feel awful. ## Everything you've described are listed as possible side ...
