Effectiveness for nerve pain from ankle fusion surgery

My primary Dr. Prescribed Metanx for my nerve pain from ankle fusion surgery.I've taken it for 30 days and haven't noticed any relief.will this work and if so how long before effective? ## Hello, Marsha! How are you? Metanx is classified by the FDA as a medical food that supports nerve health. However, what that means is that it won't actually relieve pain. Its typical side effect is usually just nausea, due to the potency. Have you informed your doctor that it isn't helping? You will most likely need a medication that will actually help with nerve pain. ## What state do you live in? I have found HYBRID-X cannabis oil, in a syringe, (ruce grain dose) into a veg-capsule, is the bullet for ANY nerve damage or pain. I lalready tried Pensaid patches and Gabapentin. The patch...

My heart rate is 103 and higher.. What can I do please? ## Hello, Rubi! How are you? What is your heart rate with the Indoblok? Is 103 a resting heart rate or is that after activity?

Medications such as this are usually intended to help keep the heart from having to work so hard, so it doesn't go into heart failure.

Gynovit syrup uses

I had no periods for the last 2 months so my doctor prescribed gynovit syrup. What is the use of it? Can it be taken along with metformin tablets also? ## From what I could gather, Grovit syrup is simply a multivitamin supplement for use in treating vitamin deficiency states as well as increased vitamin demands for pregnancy, lactation, growing children, and even severe infections. The Active ingredients in Grovit syrup are: Vitamin A (palmitate) + Vitamin B complex + Vitamin C + Vitamin D + Vitamin E Based on my research, there are no drug interactions listed between Metformin and Vitamins. So in my honest opinion, you should be fine taking the two together.

syntra 5 availability

Is it available in the U.K.? If so where can I find it? ## Where in the UK can I buy syntra-5 or dbx-13? It is supposed to be a cure for type 2 diabetes. ## I want to buy Syntra5, but not from America. Where else is it available? I see the question but not the answer. ## I am interested in finding out about the availability of Syntra-5. I tried to buy it from America but unfortunately was not able to. ## I'm trying to buy Syntra-5 in the UK. Does anyone know about its availability?

DBX-13 scam

In January 2013 - I recently purchased a subscription to the Health Sciences Institute (HSI) newsletter and got the book "Miracles from the Vault." I scoured the pages to find DBX-13 which they advertised as the diabetes miracle cure, and couldn't find it anywhere. I called HSI, and after three attempts and by threatening to take them to court for false advertising, a response finally came by email. DBX-13 is called X-Cravings. But get this... it is no longer being manufactured. X-Cravings appears to be a formula to help you stop craving food... a diet product... and I guess they apparently felt this would help you lose weight which would help your diabetes. I placed a call to the manufacturer of X-Cravings, Nutricology. Tel: (800)545-9960 who claims they don't know that...
