Question about cold sores?
Corrections by placing* my lips because its everywhere*
Asked by Felicita Finkenbinder 2 years ago.
Ok so iv had these cold sores on my lips for about 6 days now, i been using abreva and this medicated chapstick that my sister said work for her. Anyways my question is that i woke up this morning and i have all the dry yellow crust around my lips (the herpes spread to my whole bottom lip). I wanted to know if i should take that off and put cream on it. (i found that a generally easy way of removing it is by playing my lips under running water. So yea i wanted to know if its ok to take that crust off, because its everyone and kinda ugly :( Answered by Yasmin Bolinger 2 years ago.
If you've got it that bad, the best favor you could do for yourself is to go out and buy a nutritional supplement called L-Lysine. If you take 1,500mg of L-Lysine every day when you have a break-out, it'll heal faster. Then, if you continue to take about 500mg to 1,000mg every day (when you don't have a break-out) the L-Lysine will prevent break-outs, or at least greatly minimize them, when you do get them. I read about this tip in a book (over 20 years ago) called, "Prescriptions for Nutritional Healing." I tried this and several other nutritional remedies in the book (that's still available for sale) and recommended treatments to friends. We ALL found them to work. As for the medicated chapstick you said you've been using, it's probably occurred to you that when you touched that to your lips, you infected it with the virus, and then every time you use it, you're reinfecting your lips with active virus, which may account for why it's spread to your whole bottom lip. As far as removing all the crusty stuff, I have a logical idea to share with you. But, I have not tried this myself, specifically for cold sores. The thick oil that's inside a Vitamin E capsule (break open with a pin) heals skin super fast, like for me it healed a 3rd degree burn in 3 days with no scar, after I'd waited over a month for it to heal on its own. My thought is that if you put Vitamin E oil on the crusty stuff, and let it soak in for 10 or 20 minutes, the crusty stuff should be soft enough that you could gently wipe it with a facial tissue, and remove the crusty stuff. You might have to put the Vitamin E oil on several times, and experiment with how long to let it soak in, before you figure out when it's easiest to remove it. But, at least if you do it with Vitamine E oil, if removing the crusty stuff leaves it an open oozing sore again, the Vitamin E will help it heal faster. I'd put a thick layer of Vitamin E oil on your lip and sleep with it on, to let it work overnight. For this to work, you MUST use the oil that comes out of a Vitamin E capsule or gel cap. The stuff sold in bottles called Vitamin E oil is not the same thing, not nearly as potent as what comes out of the capsules. Answered by Alejandro Grisson 2 years ago.
To be thoroughly truthful, I study a piece of writing that led me to objective an ICE dice. it particularly is it! prepare an ice dice to the sore some situations an afternoon and it is going away. Going even further, in case you regulate your weight loss plan around somewhat, you will no longer even get chilly sores anymore. i attempted this suggestion some months in the past and it has labored completely.

Can i take paracetamol with my cough medicine?
Its benylin iv took and dont say its got any paracetamol in
Asked by Doris Holderbaum 2 years ago.
don’t take more than one cough or cold medicine at the same time in case they contain the same active ingredient. Benylin cold and flu max strength capsules warnings: Do not take this medicine with any other products that contain paracetamol. Many over-the-counter painkillers and cold and flu remedies contain paracetamol. It is important to check the ingredients of any medicines you buy without a prescription before taking them in combination with this medicine. Seek further advice from your pharmacist. An overdose of paracetamol is dangerous and capable of causing serious damage to the liver and kidneys. You should never exceed the dose stated in the information leaflet supplied with this medicine. Immediate medical advice should be sought in the event of an overdose with this medicine, even if you feel well, because of the risk of delayed, serious liver damage. Alcohol increases the risk of liver damage that can occur if an overdose of paracetamol is taken. The hazards of paracetamol overdose are greater in persistant heavy drinkers and in people with alcoholic liver disease. If symptoms persist despite treatment, seek medical advice from your doctor or pharmacist. Answered by Marquita Ahsan 2 years ago.
It depends on what is in the cough medicine. These sometimes include paracetamol or something similar. Answered by Rickie Blonigan 2 years ago.
i don't know if u would like it or not; but what is the need of having a cold/ chilled drink in ongoing sore throat. presently most of them are viral- what laymen say- seasonal. the development of these ailments itself indicate that our body is not able to cope with the "seasonal change". these problems only aggravate if proper care is not taken. most of the cough medicines like syrups usually contain sedatives- sort of depressants and though red bull does not contain any ingredients in "therapeutic" amount - one can in general should not do any harm effects "pharmacologically" - better AVOID IT. Answered by Santa Hiefnar 2 years ago.
If your cough medicine has acetaminophen (Tylenol) in it, then no, you should not take paracetamol on top of it. Answered by Angila Favia 2 years ago.

Try over the counter allergy pills. The store brand works great. Treat your cold with tylenol and plenty of fluids. Let it run its course then try allergy pills. Answered by Asha Oaks 2 years ago.
Sorry, this sounds like hay fever or other allergies - See your doctor or try Claritan or Benadryl. Answered by Lanelle Pereira 2 years ago.

It's very common for Albueterol to cause tachy. Just lay down and relax, the feeling will subside. I take Ventolin too, and get the same symptoms and sensations. Answered by Letitia Jurich 2 years ago.
Overdose , paracetmol 500mg capsules x16 ???/?
just to let everyone know 5 hours on from taking them I had a long sleep, just woken up was sick a few times and now feel alot better
Asked by Lizzie Ogara 2 years ago.
Personally iv'e taken 20 500mg capsuals and been perfectly fine...but perhaps that's not the case for you. As far as i can tell, your body is rejecting the amount that you have taken.You should; - Calm down, it'll only stress you out and make you worse. - Seek medical attention immediately. - If you feel sick, let yourself throw up, it'll empty your stomache. Personally i think you should seek mediacal attention immediatley, it wasn't the best of idea taking that much paracetamol. Good luck, hope your ok Answered by Carmel Bellehumeur 2 years ago.
Symptoms of paracetamol overdosage in the first 24 hours are pallor, nausea, vomiting, anorexia and abdominal pain. Liver damage may become apparent 12 to 48 hours after ingestion. Abnormalities of glucose metabolism and metabolic acidosis may occur. In severe poisoning, hepatic failure may progress to encephalopathy, haemorrhage, hypoglycaemia, cerebral oedema, and death. Acute renal failure with acute tubular necrosis, strongly suggested by loin pain, haematuria and proteinuria, may develop even in the absence of severe liver damage. Cardiac arrhythmias and pancreatitis have been reported. wow that was dumb Answered by Selene Bye 2 years ago.
if your serious then get an ambulance now. Can be fatal or cause serious liver damage for life. If this is a joke then you need your head testing. Answered by Susie Oregon 2 years ago.

EFEXOR XR 150MG .. cold turky ?
i dont want to try anything , iv already tried CEPRALEX + CYMBALTA + AND NOW EFEXOR , NO MORE i cant take it anymore
Asked by Missy Kennard 2 years ago.
Don't under any circumstances stop taking them! I'm on 300Mg daily, I missed one day whilst on 150Mg, and I was lucky to get through the day alive. It will take a while to become accustomed to them, especially as you've tried others before, there's so many different types of Anti-Depressants, and they all work in different ways. Are you sticking to roughly the same time of day, these are Modified Release capsules, so if not taken at specific times could cause adverse effects. I've been on Efexor for over 3 and a half years, with the doses being gradually increased, and in conjunction with the 13 Psychologists I've seen, they've kept me in existance, I certainly wouldn't call it life at the moment. The Side effects will diminish over time, but the Depression that they're prescribed to control won't, without them. Don't throw in the towel yet. Answered by Sarah Hattley 2 years ago.
Never stop cold turkey. Medications such as anti-depressants need to be taken on a consistent basis and for a period of several weeks or more in order for the body to utilize the medication properly to even out the chemical in-balance, before you will ever see any real results. Most anti-depressants have side effects, that usually subside over time. However if they are really bothersome, I would return to the doctor to explain your symptoms and possibly try something else. Answered by Justina Thierman 2 years ago.
i take that, it does put on weight if you don't watch the carbs. as for the being tired all the time it passes in about 3 weeks, well it did for me, if it's not working for you go back to your dr and work out a plan for slow decrease NEVER EVER go off cold turkey with efexor you can and will get very physically ill. Answered by Raymonde Antonakos 2 years ago.
I take Effexor also, whatever you do dont go of cold turkey. Try cutting the tab in half and taking it once every 2 days then every 3 days etc... This is very powerful drug be careful. You might want to give it a while longer the side effects do stop. Answered by Nakesha Steeves 2 years ago.
It sounds like you cut down too fast. Speak to your doctor. When I was coming off I went down really slowly. I went from 150 to 75, then 50, then 25, then 25 every second day, then every third day etc until I was able to go without feeling any "shocks". I would not recommend going "cold turkey" with these as they can encourage the symptoms to return. Answered by Elvina Rhodus 2 years ago.
hun, you can not go cold trukey off this medication, you have to tapper down, trust me there are very bad side effect coming of this drug. I have tryed. I know you have tryed alot of anti-depressents. But maybe you have to go higher? I'm on 300mg of effxor xr. how long have you been on it? if not long then you need to let your body get use to it, it is hard when you try alot and your body trying to get use it them all over again. If you have any question you can IM or e-mail me I will try to help you anyway I can. good luck hun and hang in there Answered by Leesa Sidor 2 years ago.
I am on them.. I am on the same dosage... I tried to get off cold turkey I got nightmares and headache... it's not possible to go off them you really need talk to the doctor that you want to get off the pills and he has to wean you off them... bit for bit.. slowly by giving you a lower dosage for a couple of weeks and see how that goes and then if that's ok go down to cutting the capsules into half and take half of the lowest dosage for another 2 weeks and then get off altogher.. That should work..xxx I know they make you tired so take them at night.... not in the morning..xxx Answered by Scot Hebblethwaite 2 years ago.
DO NOT stop taking them cold turkey!!! I did and went through 2 days of hell on earth!!! Taper off your dose or call your doctor. There are other meds out there. I have had luck with Lexapro and not so many side effects. :) Hang in there! Good luck! :) Answered by Phillip Jacka 2 years ago.

My 15 year old kitty has liver disease and I'm currently giving him IV fluids every 3 days at home. The vet would like him to also start on milk thistle. I'm wondering which is best, the capsules or the liquid drops. Which is easier and/or more productive? The caps are so big and I've heard that the liquid has a foul taste. I'm expecting a struggle either way. Any suggestions would surely ease my mind. Thank you in advance. Answered by Cristal Vanorder 2 years ago.
I'd go with the liquid. Put it in the fridge, as with many foul tasting things the taste is less bad when it's cold. You can also see if you have a compounding pharmacy in your area. The milk thistle can be compounded into a flavored liquid (tuna, chicken or beef) which is much more palatable! Also consult with your vet about the dosage of those large capsules. You can get small empty ones at health food stores, and can split a large one up into several smaller ones. They would be a cat sized dose, and a size appropriate for a cat to swallow. There is a solution - good luck! Answered by Martine Plues 2 years ago.
I don't think Milk Thistle is going to do much good of any kind for a 15 year old cat with liver disease. It does nothing for people with serious liver disease. I don't know if I would put my 15 year old cat through force feeding if that's what you have to do in order to get him to take it. Enough is enough so to speak. Now if you can give it in his food and not have to force it in his mouth, then that would be OK. Either way, I don't believe it's going to make a difference one way or the other. Sorry, but liver failure is liver failure and nothing is going to stop it. I know you love your cat. I have 2 myself which I love dearly. Eventually we have to face the fact that their life span is not all that long. I commend you for trying to help your kitty as much as you can and hope he stays around for much longer, but he is 15 and that's pretty old for kitty years. It might be time to take a hard look at your kitty's quality of life. You know better than anyone else how he seems to feel and act. Answered by Cierra Homsher 2 years ago.
i think the capsule would be easier, just get in more to the back of the throat and down it goes liquid can be spit out, if it tastes bad, cat will vomit Answered by Ruthann Phuaphes 2 years ago.
Do vit e capsuels realy work?
i have alot of scaring all over my body from wen i used to self harm iv tried everything to get rid ov my scars but they never go ....is it true vit e capsuels work ? .....thanks x
Asked by Lottie Hiraki 2 years ago.
Vitamin E capsules may help with mild scarring but even then it may be a lengthy process towards fading and softening. I think it might be a better option to talk to a dermatologist about alternative treatments available medically such as cold laser or anything else that might be available towards softening and fading scars. It is amazing what can be done with laser in particular these days and Internet research suggests it has shown good results with various forms of scarring. Best wishes.
