is it okay to take trust pill in your 3rd day of menstrual cycle?
11 Replies RSS
i took the first tablet of trust pill on the third day of my menstruation so i would like to know if that's okay and if not what is the side effects?..pls i need an answer ## Hello, Pheobe! How are you? Unless your doctor says it wasn't okay, all should be fine. However, if you start on the third day, or later in your cycle, then it will take 7 days to reach its full level of efficacy in your body to prevent pregnancy. That means that if you engage in intercourse, you'll need to use a backup method of protection, until you have taken them continuously for a full 7 days. Is there anything else I can help with? ## im good verwon,thanks thank u so much for giving time to read and answer my question helps me a lot and its a relief... ## I take my pill 6 days after my menst...

clobetasol propionate for allopecia areata
2 Replies RSS
I used 0.05% clobetasol tropical ointment for a month for allopecia and its been 2 months since i stopped using it because my doctor asked me to use it only for a month. I'm wondering if i can use it again as my hair didn't stop falling out and the bald patches are growing bigger? Thank you. ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? These steroids have only been shown to have limited success at treating this condition and the creams/ointments are actually the worst. Has your doctor offered any other treatment options? ## Two days back I found a white patch. When I consulted a doctor he said it is Alopecia areata. And he suggested I take clobetasol propionate and salicylic acid. Is this the right type of medication for it? If not, plz suggest me any other appropriate medicine or ointment. Th...

for coughs and asmathic conditions ## From what I was able to gather, I believe Histatussin is a cough medication. It has been very difficult to retrieve any information about this drug. I believe it is not from the USA. Do have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## I used diphenel and my 5 year old had trouble breathing. I am searching for answer when it comes to give him cough liquids ## how do I solve this problem with this breathing . I visited the hospital and doctors and no one was able to tell meabout this breathing side effect ## Well from what I gathered on my Histatussin box was that the active ingredients include: Chorphenamine Maleate - good for Allergies,Nasal Congestion, pruritis of the skin and Sneezing. Ammonium Chloride - used as an ex...

kenolog ruined my life
2 Replies RSS
I had mild psoriasis on my scalp, elbows, and a few on my legs. Within three days of being given an intramuscular injection of kenolog10 my hair began to fall out and I started getting these small dots in various places on my body. My dermatologist swears it is unrelated to my injection, but two months later I am covered head to toe psoriasis, including my face, and I have lost 80% of my hair. I have also been on my period for going on four weeks now. This stuff is pure poison!!! ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? I am so very sorry about what you're going through. Skin reactions like that certainly can be side effects of it, they are listed in the FDA detailed prescribing information, they just aren't very common, so they weren't able to provide a specific incident percentage f...

Kenalog of AA

I discovered a small bald spot on my head in Ausgust of 2017. I went to the dermatologist and received Kenalog shots after the PA looked at it and diagnosed me with alopecia. After the injection, i experienced pain and atrophy. I went back next month to find my spot had grown 2 inches and was almost in tears. She rushed the whole visit and asked if i wanted more injections. Stupidly, i agreed. I was just scared of loosing it all. Now im loosing hair like crazy. I wish i had found all this information and steered clear of the drug! I advise anyone to do some research first, and consider the benefits and risks. Good luck ## Oh my goodness! I am seriously experiencing literally the same exact thing. I literally have a bald spot on the back side of my head from the Kenalog. I really don...

Years ago, given to each of us once per day for keeping mosquitos from biting & if they bit us, would not cause problems. ## Where can I find Sulfur and Cream of Tarter Wafers?

Accutane and Infertility
617 Replies RSS
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...

what is betametasona clotrimazol gentamicina cream used for
26 Replies RSS
I live in San Antonio, Texas. Is this cream available in the States? Is it SAFE? ## @ERQ, The combination of Betametasona + Clotrimazol + Gentamicina is marketed towards treating various skin conditions such as pain, inflammation, itching, bacterial/fungal infections, etc. From what I've seen mentioned in another thread here, this cream is allegedly available with your doctor's prescription here in the US. However further reports suggest that it costs only a fraction of the price down in Mexico for the same ointment (i.e. $30 in the US and less than $2 in Mexico). Given this information, my suggestion would be to just get it prescribed in the US since the cost of driving to Mexico and back from Texas is probably a lot more than the difference you'd end up saving in the price...

accutane long term side effects
1908 Replies RSS
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

accutane side-effects
4 Replies RSS
I went this medication when it first came on the market in 1982. Yes, it cleared up my acne but I truly believe that this drug made me infertile. Does anyone know the stats on accutane causing infertility? As I have had 3 endoscopies and a colonscopy before the age of 43. I have chronic heartburn and problems with my bowels. One doctor indicated that I had IBS but I never was officially diagnosed nor was the accutane indicated for my infertility issues. I guess I'm screwed sice that statue of limitations is up for me of course I didn't know about all these issues up until a few years ago. I am very concerend though about my nephew-He is 18 and is on accutane. He has horrible cystic acne and nothing has worked for him. Last I saw him, His face looked really good-My concern is for...

Veltin - max temperature for retaining potency
1 Reply RSS
I just received a prescription for Veltin and the mail carrier left it in my mailbox. The temperature outside is close to 90 degrees and when I took the tube out of box it felt extremely hot. I don't know how long it was out in the heat. I'm assuming maybe 4 hours. The box label indicates it should be stored at 77 degrees and it definitely was hotter than that. I called the pharmacy & they said it was still fine but I have read that the hot temperatures could deteriorate the product and cause potency loss. Just curious if anyone else has had this experience or knows whether it's still good? ## It should be fine, unless it was out there for a long period of time, just as your pharmacy said. While medications can deteriorate due to time, temperature, and storage conditions...

clobetasol propionate tube expiration date

The tube I got from the pharamacy expires in 1 yr. Is 1 yr normal? It is for clobetasol propionate. Can I use it after the yr is up. The prescription tube is for the spray. Is the spray more potent then the ointment as it seems to work quicker but makes me very tired. ## I was given a prescription for Clobetasol. The prescription box says not to use it after 1 year. I live in N.J. Is it normal for Clobetasol to expire after one yr? The Clobetasol is advised to be used once in the am and once in the pm. I am getting terrible bruising in the area of my arm most affected by psoriasis. ## Yes, your pharmacy would not give you an inaccurate expiration date. After a certain period of time, all medications begin to degrade and start to lose efficacy, so once expired, it is best to dispose of t...
