dosage for 5mg of prednisone for a 34 yr old woman
My dermatologist prescribed me 12 tabs of prednisone at 5mg for the first 5 days, then 8 tabs at 5mg for 5days, then 4 tabs at 5mg for 5 days, then 2 tabs at 5mg for 5 days, then 1 tab at 5mg for 5 days, then 0.5mg for 5 days, then stop. Should I be worried about the high dosage in the beginning of my dosage? Please Help? ## Hello, Yvonne! How are you? For some conditions that is how it's done, a high dose for awhile, which is then slowly tapered, so yes, this is normal. It is the tapering that is important, if you're on it for more than 5 days. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you :) ...

Amoxicillin Dosage for 1 year old ear infection
son is 13 months old and 22 lbs he is to take 400 mg /5ml susp 100ml of amox. 1 teaspoon 2xs a day for ear infection is this the correct dosage? ## Hi Jennifer, From what I can find, the usual dose for a child greater than 3 months old (with a mild/moderate ear infection) is (25 mg/kg) per day in divided doses every 12 hours- or (20 mg/kg) per day in divided doses every 8 hours. Is 1 teaspoon twice a day of 400 mg Amoxicillin suspension what your doctor prescribed? If so, I don't see why it wouldn't be correct. Note: All thoughts and opinions expressed are based on my research and should not be mistaken for medical advice. I am not a doctor nor a pharmacist. all medical questions should be answered by a licensed pharmacist or doctor. You can learn more about this drug on the pag... ...

Dosages Of Chlorthalid
I JUST STARTED THE DRUG CHLORTHALID 25 MG. TODAY. I HAVE NOT NOTICED ANY INCREASE IN MY URINE OUTPUT. IS IT BECAUSE OF THE LOW DOSAGE? WOULD AN INCREASE IN THE DOSAGE HELP? ## No, you shouldn't arbitrarily increase the dosage of any medication on your own, it isn't safe to do so. And though this is a diuretic and will have a small immediate effect, like any medication, it will take awhile to reach its full effect in your body, so one day isn't really enough to judge its efficacy on. Learn more Chlorthalidone details here. If it's working for you, you'll know in a few days and, if not, then please let the prescribing doctor know. What are you taking it to treat? ## WELL, FIRST OF ALL, I SAID IT WAS 25 MG, AND I ONLY TAKE 1/2 OF A PILL, SO I'M TAKING 12 1/2 MG. ONC... ...

Trimeth Sulfa Ds 160 800mg What Is standard dosage for adult
What is the usual dosage for this med? Dr. gave a sample for the earache, but failed to tell the amount. ## Based on my research, dosage requirements for this medication can depend largely on what you are taking it for. However the "average" oral dose of Sulfamethoxazole (800 mg) + Trimethoprim (160 mg) DS (double strength) for an adult would be to take a pill every 12 hours for 10 to 14 days. Even if this is the average dosage for most conditions, it would probably still be best to confirm what your doctor recommends for YOU. This oral medication should be taken by mouth with a full glass of water or as directed by your doctor. You can view a detailed description of the drug by clicking on the link below... Please post back if you have any other questions or concerns about this... ...

Nuvigil - increasing dosage
I have been on 150mg Nuvigil per day for several years. Previous to that, I was on Provigil , but the insurance co. made the dr. switch me over to Nuvigil because it was supposedly less expensive. I am chronically ill and disabled with many health issues and have been this way for 10 yrs. I am also on 12-14 other meds. daily, many which make me drowsy - thus the need for Nuvigil. Recently , one of my other prescriptions(that has drowsy side effects) was increased, I don't know if it's a result of that or it's because I have been on it for so long, but it's not working as well as it used to. It may be a combination of both. I plan on calling my dr. first thing tomorrow, because I cannot keep my eyes open starting around approx 8 hrs. after taking my dose. I cannot stand b... ...

Synthroid Dosage Was Changed After Taking The Same Dose For 14 Years
I have been on the same dose of synthroid for the last 14 years 200mcg. I previously had Graves many years ago, had radiation to stop the goiter hence the high dose of the medication. I am levels are checked routinely and the last 2 tests show my thyroids is alittle overactive so my dose was lowered. I had a total hysterectomy 2 years ago. What could have caused the change? ## It might just be due to the changes that have occurred in your body as time has passed. Our bodies do change regularly and sometimes a medication has to be changed, or the dosage adjusted. It's perfectly normal and actually quite amazing that you were doing so well with the same dose for that many years. Learn more Synthroid details here.

Levothyroxine Dosage, M.E.- Adrenals
Hi there- I have suffered from M.E. for 11 years- which, I know, has very similar symptoms to hypothyroid- Anyway, I had to have blood tests done for a private clinic in 2010- My GP did these tests, but I was never called in to discuss the results... Luckily, my nutritionist picked up on the low level of serum ferritin(7) and started me on a gentle Iron preparation- But my TSH levels were 5.13 and T4 14- My M.E. seemed to be worsening, especially 'brainfog'- and I have been through the Menopause now- so I asked for more tests and my thyroid levels are now TSH 5.30 and T4 12- I have had no help from my Doctors in 11 years so it was no surprise when, instead of calling in(I'mhousebound) A GP who I have never seen, rang me- Said it was 'my call' if I wanted to start med... ...

i have amoxicillin 500mg dosage can i give it to my 12year old girl
For a tooth pain for a 12yr old girl would like to know if she could drink one until we see the dentist on Friday ## Hello, Iris! How are you? Sorry about your daughters toothache. However, Amoxicillin is not a pain medication, it is an antibiotic that's used to treat or prevent bacterial infections, so it will not relieve the pain. The only way it will help is if her pain is caused by an infection and even then, it will take several days to help. Learn more Amoxicillin details here. And if it isn't an infection, giving it to her creates the risk of her developing antibiotic resistant bacteria, which could be very dangerous. Thus, it is best to take her to a doctor or dentist, as soon as possible, for proper diagnosis and treatment, rather than trying to treat her yourself. Is t... ...

7.5 dosage only lasting 6-7 hours, then pain returns
I have chronic Osteoporosis pain. the 7.5 I take at 7 am wares off by the afternoon. Should I double the dosage: 7.5 am and 7.5 after 6pm? Also, is it safe to take clonazepam .5mg with Meloxicam. Thanks much for any suggestions. ## The normal starting dose is 7.5mgs, once daily, but it can be increased to 15mgs, in two even doses, so that would mean a second 7.5mg tablet 12 hours later. Learn more Meloxicam details here. However, it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that requires a prescription, so you'll have to have any dosage change approved by your doctor. Have you contacted them, yet? And I didn't find any interactions, or problems listed between the two medications, but you should check with your pharmacist to be certain. ## Thank you kindly for the quick reply. I will f... ...

it has gg o n the left side an n7 on the right side. it,s a white pill.amox/k clav875 125tabsandoz for tooth infection ## To answer your question, yes, you can take these pills for a tooth infection. Amoxicillin is included in the list of popularly prescribed antibiotics for tooth infections. Its effectiveness however, depends on how far the tooth infection has spread; and if required, combination therapy is followed. The effectiveness of amoxicillin for addressing tooth infection also largely depends upon taking it in correct dosage, which is decided by the concerned doctor. A common dosing method for a tooth infection is taking one pill 3 times a day, (i.e., after every 8 hours) for 10 days. I would recommend checking with your doctor to verify what might be best for you though. I hop... ...
