Answered questions

I have taken Fansidar SP to treat malaria.Can it affect my pregnancy?
Asked by Dannielle Steidl 1 year ago.

Fansidar is given during pregnancy, after you feel your baby move. Untreated malaria can cause death both to the mother and the baby, so taking this medicine is very important. Only take it after you feel the baby move and sleep under a treated mosquito net. Answered by Shu Rigler 1 year ago.

Yep... taking Fansidar SP instead of having sex could definately prevent you from getting pregnant! But when in doubt, poop it out or ask a doctor ot G O O G L E it. Answered by Michal Amrine 1 year ago.


Can fansidar affect a pregnancy?.?
Asked by Otha Millraney 1 year ago.

I did an online search with these words "fansidar use in pregnancy" which gave over 36,700 results. Many are adobe document results of several studies. You can do your own research and find an answer to your question. I would also speak to your physician who prescribed the drug as well as your OB doc about continuing to use the drug if you are pregnant. Good luck and do your homework!

So I once had malaria a year ago. And now this year I got fever with similar symptoms. I decided to take Fansidar/Maladar (same drug with diverse names) bcz I had no time for doc. Before self aministrating I read about it on the web. Now the dose for malaria infacted person is 3 tablets, but for prevention is 1 tablet. Since I was doubtful about my disease, I took 2 instead of 3 since 1 is a safe amount and I was worried if I take 3 and don't have malaria, i might get overdose effects. The problem is that now I'm worried that if I have malaria, 2 tablets might create immunity. My question is....should I take the third tablet? Is it safe? Can two tablets alone work if I don't take the third. Thnx a lot. Answered by Juliane Selvera 1 year ago.

I'm NOT a doctor, but as a microbiologist/immunologist I can tell you that you're exactly right about taking 2 tablets--you're far more likely not to kill the Plasmodium parasite and maybe get some resistance. Better not to take any at all unless you're willing to take all three. Answered by Peggie Krupiak 1 year ago.

Serious health problems, or so I FEEL?
you fit in with the rest... Asked by Rey Rochin 1 year ago.

Well I'm really fed up and it's gotten to the point that i plan on studying medicine because no doctor cares to hear what I'm telling them and therefore no actions can be taken to see what is wrong with me. I have great fatigue, weakness, my bones and joints hurt badly, i can't breathe, and my eyes feel weird as if i cant focus and it hurts when i see bright things. My hands hurts and get stuck just by eating a bowl of cereal. I'm only 19 and it devastates me to think of my future because it already feels like I'm dying. NO ONE cares to hear and take action and it hurts so bad! I feel like i need to study medicine and what not in order to find out what's wrong, if I'm strong enough to do it.. It's hard for me to focus and i've been my hands and feet perspire constantly i get cold then i get hot.. i'm just so fed up because i really care about my health and not even my family cares to see what's wrong. They don't really care to take me to the docs, they're "busy" and i would take the bus but i feel i would get confused and be short up breathe and other things.. i feel really alone and it just hurts. On top of that I'm usually the one who does everything around the house and i have to put on a smile because NO ONE cares, not even to help out around the house. It just makes me so sad... docs are saying you're only 19! and its a bunch of BS because they're not listening to me.. i told my doc that i need an MRI for my lower back because it pops and slides... and he was like you only need an x-ray. So that's what i got. No wonder why America is in the situation it's in.... The only thing i can remember is when i was a kid (10) it was a hot summer night so i slept in my undies and with the window open.. the next day i had !A LOT! of mosquito bites... so that's the only thing i can think of now that I'm older.. i heard Fansidar is medicine for malaria cause by mosquitos... so if you or anyone knows a way to get a hold of this and/or other medications to get me healthy please leave me a message or if you know good physicians in California (LA County) However way I'll get there? maybe a miracle... Also feel free to leave recommendations regardingmy post or responses about lazy doctors! Answered by Martin Pavlat 1 year ago.

You are a hypochondriac. That is a person who really believes that there is something very seriously wrong with them but nobody will believe them. Especially trained and experience doctors. You need to get some help from a psychiatrist. They will care and help you. Good luck... .. Answered by Darryl Esquea 1 year ago.

Firstly, I think for you. It appears like you're going by way of a relatively hard patch. Don't lose wish even though, you're going to certainly think greater quickly - however you're going to ought to be proactive to get there. You have to persist in seeing the health practitioner till you get a prognosis. No-one else will placed your wellbeing first so that you must do it for your self. It is tough to maintain pushing, specifically whilst you think terrible, however consider that you've got essentially the most to lose by way of now not doing some thing and essentially the most to attain by way of getting the correct solutions. I additionally had more than a few signs for years earlier than I received a prognosis. I had a few equivalent signs to yours - joint aches, extreme tiredness, sweating and sight disorders. I stored going again to the health practitioner till I received a prognosis (pituitary hormones all guilty) however it did take years to get there. I must had been extra pushy prior, rather of accepting what the health practitioner mentioned. I used to be even advised on one social gathering that it used to be simply "a type of matters" however my situation would have proved harmful if left undiagnosed in the longer term. Go to peer your health practitioner once more and take a record of the entire signs you're agony when you omit a few. Mention even the slightest concern because it would be the important thing for your situation. I could endorse that you simply ask (insist!) that your health practitioner offers you blood exams for hormone stages as lots of your signs would be triggered by way of a concern there. If not anything turns up, simply maintain bugging till you're convinced. Also, if you're having disorders together with your eyes, the first factor to do is have a watch scan as that may exhibit up different disorders. I could strongly propose in opposition to getting preserve of any remedy for malaria with out a prognosis of that. It is not ever a well suggestion to self-medicate and it would make you a lot more in poor health. Good good fortune and I wish you think plenty greater quickly.

Firstly, I feel for you. It sounds like you are going through a really rough patch. Don't lose hope though, you will most likely feel better soon - but you will have to be proactive to get there. You must persist in seeing the doctor until you get a diagnosis. No-one else will put your health first so you need to do it for yourself. It is hard to keep pushing, especially when you feel awful, but remember that you have the most to lose by not doing anything and the most to gain by getting the right answers. I also had various symptoms for years before I got a diagnosis. I had some similar symptoms to yours - joint aches, severe tiredness, sweating and sight problems. I kept going back to the doctor until I got a diagnosis (pituitary hormones all to blame) but it did take years to get there. I should have been more pushy earlier, instead of accepting what the doctor said. I was even told on one occasion that it was just "one of those things" but my condition could have proved dangerous if left undiagnosed in the long term. Go to see your doctor again and take a list of all the symptoms you are suffering in case you forget some. Mention even the slightest problem as it could be the key to your condition. I would suggest that you ask (insist!) that your doctor gives you blood tests for hormone levels as many of your symptoms could be caused by a problem there. If nothing turns up, just keep bugging until you are satisfied. Also, if you are having problems with your eyes, the 1st thing to do is have an eye test as that can show up other problems. I would strongly advise against getting hold of any medicine for malaria without a diagnosis of that. It is never a good idea to self-medicate and it could make you much more sick. Good luck and I hope you feel a lot better soon. Answered by Elwanda Merrigan 1 year ago.

The only competent medical advice that you can obtain will be from a licensed medical doctor who should examine you, consider your medical complaints and refer you to a specialist if required. You can always seek a second opinion. That said, many believe that medical doctors concentrate on rescue and repair (broken bones and medications, etc.). That means that there is much that you must do for yourself. Assume that the design of the human body was completed about 10,000 years ago. To be healthy many avoid foods and drinks that did not exits 10,000 years ago. For example, avoid soda, alcohol, margarine and processed wheat and sugars. Do exercise (perhaps walk at least 30 minutes three times a week, preferably in the sunshine), drink enough water to avoid dehydration (eight 8-ounce glasses per day?). Dehydration of the ventricles in the brain and the spinal column can cause serious problems. If you try to do everything right and still don't feel well there may in fact be a problem that needs treatment and it might stand out if possible bad habits are eliminated. Consider taking a multiple (one a day) vitamin to supplement a good diet, knowing that it provides only enough ingredients to avoid major illnesses such as rickets and scurvy. Consider taking extra vitamin C (read about it in several google articles) plus extra vitamin D3 that substitutes for lack of sunshine. Consider trying a very simple diet with lots of fruits and vegetables and meat used more as a condiment than the main dish. Many take fish oil (check label for mercury free) and garlic pills (from health stores). Many problems may arise due to low grade alergies to certain favorite foods that can be eliminated and added back perhaps one a week to be sure they are not a problem. For example many are affected by the gluten in bread without knowing it and must cut back (or cut out?) breads. You can study medicine (without becoming a doctor) by using a google (or yahoo) search engine to learn more about healthy habits. Beware that not all information on the web is reliable and a consensus from several articles may help. A primary physician can not spend as much time with you as could a personal physician (only patient?) and you must do your part to stay well. Best wishes. Answered by Agatha Gue 1 year ago.

4 pts of confusion - can you help clear this up? 1)I have 1 guidebook that recommends cloroquine for the 1st country I'll visit (cambodia) & fansidar for the 2nd country (laos). These drugs have to build up in your system so switching in mid-trip is out. What to do? 2) I have found cloroquine for sale throughout SE Asia but cloroquine-resistance has been seen since the '80s. Why are they selling it? 3) For emergency treatment, I had always heard of increased doses of the propylaxis. However I recently read that switching the medication & using a higher dose of another drug was the way to go; fansidar was the one mentioned 4) where can I get reliable, current info re. malaria prophylaxis, other than CDC (they just read to you from their info sheets)?
