what are famynor tablets for

Hi, I've had abnormal/irregular periods since I started my periods. They've been on and off since day 1. I would go for months without any sign of bleeding or spotting. Three years back I would spot for weeks and after it would be a normal period; last year an unusual spotting started to come in a brown color. It went on for weeks as well. I then went to the nearest clinic n got famynor which stopped the spotting. In between the month of usage the spotting came back as periods and the famynor couldn't stop the bleeding, only to find a huge clot that came out and I thought my problem was solved. On that same week I went through my normal periods without any pain whatsoever but the bleeding was heavy at first n it just slowed as time went on. On the following month it was a us...

Discontinuing Megestrol Treatment

I'm elderly and have been taking megestrol, but would like to come off most of my meds... Is there an adjustment period or can you come off of megestrol fast? ## Hi Jerry, May I ask how long you've been taking Megestrol for? Often times, if someone has taken a medication long enough, there can be physical or psychological adjustment periods simply because the body is being cut off a chemical that it was used to having, even when the substance is benign in nature or non-habit-forming. However, if it's been a short while (say a few months or so), then in my opinion I don't see any reason why someone wouldn't be able to stop taking this medication cold turkey. On the other hand, because everyone reacts/responds differently (due to various underlying factors), the only w...

Opdivo (nivolumab) reviews

I had stage 3b subungual melanoma and after they did an amputation of my thumb and lymph nodes dissection, they lowered it to 2b, but when the results came back they said I'm cancer free yet still want me to take opdivo (nivolumab). Does anyone have any experience with this? ## That is normal, just in case some cancer cells were missed by the testing, most people are told to continue takint the relevant medication for a certain period of time. The FDA lists its most common side effects as possibly including nausea, fatigue, muscle/joint pain, and decreased appetite. There is also a warning regarding the possibility of severe inflammation of some organs of the body, they are immune mediated. Has anyone else been on this medication? Congrats on beating cancer! ## I’ve been on op...

H86 cancer cure

After a bit of drilling down and reading I think I have found out what H-86 really is... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gleevec ## There are actually a few other discussion threads on this same topic that talk about H86 and how it works as a cancer treatment. However, I'm not sure if everyone is on the same page as far as what it really is. You can view each thread by visiting the links below: Discuss/h86-cancer-treatment-252777.htm Discuss/h-86-cancer-cure-250866.htm Discuss/h-86-cancer-cures-252713.htm By the way, have you also looked into CBD's from cannabis as a viable cure for cancer? Studies show that it's actually more effective than chemo, and without the side effects. So this might be something to consider researching as well. I hope this helps! ## This Product is called AVE...

what is the use of a gyno kit

what is the purpose of a gyno kit ? ## about gyno kit indications ## There are several reasons a gyno kit can be used, so it really depends on what has happened to necessitate the need for it. One type of gyno kit is used for testing purposes, it can test for abnormal cells that may signify the presence of cancer or take DNA samples if a possible rape has occurred. Another type of gyno kit is used to treat various conditions, such as infections or sexually transmitted diseases. Can you provide any more details? ## I've have had ulceration of the mouth (throat, palate, gums and under the tongue) for the last one year. Sometimes accompanied by ear ache eye ailment and rashes on my skin. I've been getting treatment almost weekly (at the onset) and a fortnight or monthly but haven...

Megace and fevers

I’m a 35 yr old female that had abnormal bleeding from PCOS and after a blood transfusion, put on megace to stop the bleeding. This was in July 2017. I’ve been running high fevers since October, non stop. Highest 103.0. I’ve been admitted and they’ve ran every test imaginable. Every test is coming back negative.Theyve rested me for Lyme, West Nile, meningitis, CT’s of Head, abdomen, pelvic, you name it, I’ve had it tested. I’m curious to know if Megace has given anyone else these “unexplained” fevers? I? have the doctors baffled, yet spoke with an oncologist today and think we might be on to this medication. Anyone else experience this? ## Yes, it has been known to cause fevers and hot flashes, according to FDA reports. Other side ef...

Have you consulted your doctor for assistance? They may have samples, or they might be able to suggest an alternative medication. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Savella as possibly including nausea, dizziness, anxiety, seizures and ear ringing.

Not feeling well on Zejula

This is my 5th week on Zejula 200mg daily. As suggested by the pharmacy nurse I take it at night to help with possible side effects. The first 2 weeks I felt good. Slightly nauseous and shaky in the morning but was able to function well. The 3rd week I felt nauseous and shaky but it lasted longer. I also had more good days than bad. The 4th week the nausea, shakiness and fatigue lasted most the day. I did have 2 fairly good days that week. This week so far I have felt lousy most of the day. I have had my blood work checked every week. Platelets down to 100. Rest of my CBC low normal range. I see my oncologist in 4 days. I understand the reason to take this drug but I want to feel better. I have taken the nausea med as needed, many other forms of nausea relief methods and have taken naps...

what are the side effects for the chicken pills

These Jamaican pills are used to make your butt larger. ## I'm sorry, but from that nickname, description and generalization, I cannot tell you anything. In order to provide you with any information, you need to provide the actual name of the product or its ingredients. There are far too many other possibilities of what it could be that you are talking about. Do you know the name of them? ## I would like 2 purchase the chicken pills over the counter. Are there any side effects & do they really work?? ## Hey i was interested in the chicken pill that makes your butt bigger, but am just scared of the side effects, and does it really work? How do i take it?? ## I think they changed it and that this supplement only comes in a powder form now. Instead of chicken pills I think it might...

mosegor vita is for what

My father is diagnosed with spinal comoression fracture, the mass possibly metastasized from prostate cancer. His doctor prescribed mosegor for something like sleeping or pain relief. Because he is suffering from pain and sleeplessness he is constantly requesting to take a capsule even after he had taken them. We refuse to give him outside the doctor's dosage of one capsule a day. Can we allow him to take say 2 to 3 capsules a day? Please reply... ## Mosegor Vita contains Pizotifen and a complex of B vitamins, it is most commonly used to treat or prevent migraines. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, drowsiness, and weight gain. No, his dosage should not be changed, without the approval of his medical provider. He may need to try a different medicati...

votrient/.renal kidney cancer

Any good results on renal kidney cancer. need help on shrinking advanced stage tumors.. now on votrient.. not sure in sutent is better.. anu suggestions ## Have been on Sutent (4yrs). No longer working. Am to start Votrient in 2 wks. I hope it will work. The side effects are hopefully not as bad as the sutent. Going to the bathroom 10 times a day get to be a little much.

Xtandi and other treatments

My husband has an aggressive form of prostate cancer. In 2 years have been through chemo, radiation, lupron, immunotherapy (provenge), zytiga and another one or two that I can't remember. Anyway, the doctor is now talking about xtandi and Radium 223, and perhaps a clinical trial using Taxotere using Ascorbic acid. Side effects from the Xtandi, Radium and Taxotere (which he did 2 yrs ago when diagnosed) are not very pleasant, especially if the results are only for 3-4 months, which is the average before his psa rises and scans show the cancer spreading. Anyone else have an aggressive form of prostate cancer and dealing with treatment that doesn't work for long? ## Dear CeeCee, I'm very sorry to hear about the condition your husband is in. My spouse's grandfather (age 80+)...

He said he was told it was some type of speeder pill, but he doesn't do that and brought it home for me to identify. I remember white crosses back in the '80s but I don't remember what those looked like so long ago. ## A tablet with the R 57 marking is manufactured by Actavis and they list it as containing 0.5mgs of Lorazepam, which is a generic for Ativan, it is most commonly used to treat anxiety, and nervous disorders. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, irritability, and h...
