Asked by Floy Landrith 2 years ago.
The question means: which of the drugs interfere the synthesis of cholesterol? Actually, synthesis of cholesterol is made by liver. Normally, statins interfere the synthesis. However, it is not in your choices. So, a. clofibrate - (included in the fibrates drugs group) inhibit the absorption of cholesterol in the intestines. b. niacin - interfere the synthesis of blood fats in the liver c. cholestyramine - (is included in the bile-acid sequestrants) utilizes cholesterol to produce bile acids and clear the body from the excessive cholesterol (do not interfere in the synthesis). d. dextrothyroxine - (it is rarely prescribed due to high risks for heart disease; not used anymore in USA and Canada). It also interfere the synthesis of cholesterol and its uptake in the liver. As you see, the correct answers are B and D. Answered by Kyra Shelko 2 years ago.
SkepDoc is right, there is no need for me to repeat. Just to reiterate; RedAngel does not actually know whats she's talking about. She goes onto sites like NaturalNews and Mercola and takes anything she reads there at face value, ignoring the fact that these people do not actually have a clue what they are talking about, and cannot interpret data. "Edit: to skepdoc...the evidence is overwhelming that saturated fat are not the bad fats they are made out to be." No, you miss the point; saturated fats are not bad, it's the QUANTITY thats' the problem, along with other factors. "In fact the first heart attack was recorded in Britain in 1878 and it took 42 years for another heart attack to be recorded in 1921.....a long wait indeed...." Er...I'd actually like to see some data to support that comment. I also think you should take into consideration the fact medical technology was not as advanced back then as it is now, many causes of death were not recorded accurately. Also, perhaps it has something to do with the fact everyone is living longer. What you and your ilk fail to understand is that arteriosclerosis (main cause of MIs) is to a certain extent part of the NATURAL ageing process........of course an unhealthy diet and lifestyle will accelerate it. Living longer means managing diseases that occur with age. "but everyone ate saturated fats back then" Yep, they also died back then too and had half the life expectancy.

I just started it and was reading through the drug facts and it said...If NuvaRing is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining NuvaRing with the following: Acetaminophen (Tylenol)...

I just started it and was reading through the drug facts and it said... If NuvaRing is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining NuvaRing with the following: Acetaminophen (Tylenol) Antibiotics such as ampicillin and tetracycline Anticonvulsants such as Dilantin, Phenobarbital, Tegretol, Trileptal, Topamax, Felbatol Antifungals such as Gris-PEG, Nizoral, Sporanox Atorvastatin (Lipitor) Clofibrate (Atromid-S) Cyclosporine (Neoral, Sandimmune) HIV drugs classified as protease inhibitors (Agenerase, Crixivan, Fortovase, Invirase, Kaletra, Norvir, Viracept) Morphine (Astramorph, Kadian, MS Contin) Phenylbutazone Prednisolone (Prelone) Rifadin (rifampin) St. John's wort Temazepam Theophylline (Theo-Dur) Vitamin C So....Tylenol and Vitamin C!....Should I ask my doctor about this? Has anyone else using asked their doctor about this Answered by Karlyn Fenwick 2 years ago.
Vitamin C may raise levels of estrogen in the blood. You will have to take at least 1g to have that happen which is a lot. Tylenol is affected by the hormones and may lower the blood levels of acetaminophen. Neither of them lower the effectiveness of the Nuva Ring. Your doctor can verify this with you. You can read the link below that will tell you what every interaction for each drug is. It is for the pill but the drug interations are the same for the Nuva Ring. They contain the same hormones.

Nuvaring Facts Answered by Leonora Caridine 2 years ago.
I did use it and I loved it. After the first try it's really easy to insert and remove so it quickly becomes no big deal. And you can take it out for a few hours at a time and not lose any effectiveness so I always took it out whenever my husband and I got romantic. I always had bad side affects with the high level of ingested hormones with traditional birth control pills so the ring was a great solution for me. Answered by Verlie Calija 2 years ago.
Antibiotics are known to counteract birth control- what other drugs also do that?
I've always heard to be careful about antibiotics making birth control ineffective...but are there others I should be aware of? Does this happen with other drugs? Allergy medicine, motion sickness medicine, prescription pain medication like Percocet, anything??

You have 3 choices. either read the entire information that came with your pills or call your pharmacy and ask them if it is okay to take a certain med or pills while on birth control. You can also go online, look up your pills and see what it says you can not take with them. I take few medicines and it says I can not eat or drink grapefruit (which I don't like anyway).

You have got to consult with the medical professional about your medication. But if you are taking yasmin beginning control capsule then do not get a lot concerned concerning the facet-effects however first visit to your medical professional. Answered by Julianne Trammell 2 years ago.
