You would need to know the half life of the drug. Google it, or use webmd.com, and ping around. If the half life is 24 hours, say, it means that in 24 hours, half of the dose has been used. In another 24 hours, half of that is then gone, and so on. As well, people react differently to different drug, so a 24 hour half life might still be unpleasant to you even two days later. While someone else was fine 2 days later. Answered by Junita Bardos 1 year ago.

Is influenza curable?
P.S. give some facts about influenza if u can! Asked by Tawny Lamacchia 1 year ago.

Like most viral infections, flu is not curable because it's self-limiting. It runs its course and the immune system eventually gets the upper hand. Flu typically lasts from 1 to 2 weeks. People who are essentially healthy, have no preexisting conditions tend, and who give themselves good supportive care tend to have the shorter course. Those with preexisting conditions that predispose them to flu-related complications, or who do NOT give themselves good supportive care, tend to have the longer course. Antiviral medications such as Tamiflu, Relenza & Flumadine, do not cure flu. They can shorten the duration by 1-2 days and help lessen the severity of the symptoms. Flu doesn't directly kill people, the complications do that and whatever that final complication was is what's written or typed on the death certificate as cause of death. There are three flu types that infect humans - type B,type A and type C. The type B subtypes tend to be milder and are usually lumped together and just referred to as "type B".. The type A flus that we're most concerned with are seasonal H1N1, novel H1N1, seasonal H3N2, variant H3N2 and H2N2. The letters in these subtype names, H and N, mean something. These are the surface antigens, proteins, on these viruses. H means hemagglutinin and N means neuraminidase. The numbers that follow the letters signify which subtype of hemagglutinin and neuraminidase is on the virus. There are 16 different hemagglutinin subtypes and 9 different neuraminidase subtypes. Type C is uncommon and very mild so it's usually not even mentioned. Flu viruses can mutate in approximately one year and a virus that has mutated into a variant subtype is capable of transferring this altered genetic material to another virus. It doesn't necessarily have to be the same subtype. This is horizontal transfer. This is also seen among bacteria. It's not unique and it's not rare. If the viral "modification" helps a virus evade the immune system, it can promote drug-resistance. If you want to know some thing more, then email me with specific questions. Please don't message me through Yahoo. Answered by Wilbert Grosh 1 year ago.

Is my son's mother addicted to legal drugs? I saw 10 empty bottles of Trazadone, Fluxadine, Vicodin.?
She has had a problem with depression in the past. Was taking Prozac and still has some in the house along with several other medications not listed. Are these drugs usually prescribed to patients all together and for long periods of time? Asked by Brian Acencio 1 year ago.

Vicodin is the only one of these drugs which is highly abused. Trazodone is a very old antidepressant drug which is not prescribed very much anymore. It's not known to be abused. Prozac also is not known to be abused. Flumadine (I'm guessing this is what you mean) is an antiviral drug and again is not known to be abused. Vicodin is the only one you mention which is known to be abused because it provides a high. You don't give sufficient information to determine if she's addicted to legal drugs. You need to look at the prescription bottles and see if they are prescribed to her. Then look at the dates they were filled because they may just be old prescription bottles that she hasn't thrown away which is not all that uncommon. If they were not prescribed to her or if she is going through prescriptions very quickly, then this would indicate she may be addicted. Best wishes <3 Answered by Ka Dimarino 1 year ago.

I'm just guessing that you mean fluoxetine which is Prozac. Trazadone would help with anxiety, sleeping and depression as well. Obviously I don't know why she'd be taking Vicodin unless she had a pain problem. The bottles were empty? Is she just not throwing them away for some reason? Doesn't mean she's an addict if she keeps empty bottles. Answered by Irwin Zills 1 year ago.

Yeah people in my school use those drugs to get high all of the time. Just get a blood test and it will show all drugs (even prescription meds) that she has taken in the last month. Good luck Answered by Thresa Heuer 1 year ago.

No the bloodless climate does not purpose bloodless/flu. You are correct in that they're viral infections. However, the bloodless and flu are extra ordinary in iciness since the germs have a area day interior in which we have now the heating up complete blast - this supplies maximum stipulations for them to multiply quicker and for this reason that means they may be able to multiply quicker than your immune process can do away with them!

My son was Taken Saturday to the instacare by his mother. The doctor said he had influenza A and prescribed tamiflu. We are double insured with Medicare and my insurance through my job. My ex wife wanted me to pick up the med at Smiths. When I arrived. They told me there were 2 problems Medicare doesn't cover tamiflu and they were out of it. I went to walmart. They had it in stock but said it would take 2 hours. I went back to find out my insurance company wanted a lot of red tape done first. It cost $199 to buy it without insurance. i text my ex wife she waited 2 hours to respond and said we haveto get it that day no matter what. I spent couple hours on the phone trying to figure out a way of getting it. I suggested to bring my son back to the instacare and explain our delima and see if there was a cheaper med we can put him on. Had no response. I talked to my preacher. He said for me to buy it and they would reimburse me for it. I ran back to walmart to find out my ex wife already went and paid full price for it and today she is demanding 1/2 of the money back. Isn't there a cheaper just as good medicine for kids. My son is 9 years old. Now my 11year old is showing same symptoms and i am too. I don't want to he paying $600 for meds if there are other meds out there that would work. Do ky question is is there other meds we could bw using that would work just as good. Answered by Shay Reffner 1 year ago.

You have more than one question here. "Isn't there a cheaper just as good medicine for kids." -- Unless your son has a pre-existing condition, such as asthma, that would predispose him to flu-related complications there was no reason for the Tamiflu prescription. This antiviral doesn't cure the flu. It reduces the severity of the symptoms and shortens the duration by a day or two. So why did the boy's doctor prescribe anything? What other conditions does your son have? Both Medicare and your private insurance don't carry Tamiflu in their formulary. A formulary is a list of drugs that an insurance company will pay for in part. Drugs not in the formulary require prior authorization and this is the "red tape" you wrote of. There must be medical justification for a prior auth to be approved. It would've made more sense to go back to the Instacare clinic, explain the need for prior auth to the doctor and a call could've been made to one insurance or the other to obtain prior auth over the phone and have it faxed as well. Of course, if there was medical justification for the drug, this could've been done because of urgency. The urgency being that Tamiflu has to be started right away. "I suggested to bring my son back to the instacare and explain our delima and see if there was a cheaper med we can put him on." -- Since Tamiflu and Relenza need to be started within 48 hours of the first flu symptoms, it may already be too late for it or any other antiviral med. Relenza is a disk inhaler and runs about $44. Flumadine $28 and Symmetrel $15 for a course of treatment; generic Symmetrel sells for a mere $3. You can call your insurance's pharmacy* and find out what they will approve then you can tell the doctor which med he can prescribe. * -- Call customer service and tell them you need to find out if certain drugs are in the formulary. You're trying to find one that doesn't require prior authorization. They should give you the number to their pharmacy. "I don't want to he paying $600 for meds if there are other meds out there that would work. Do ky question is is there other meds we could bw using that would work just as good. " -- Flu vaccination for the entire family would have cost a fraction of this and would've been covered by insurance. It's called preventive care. I still don't understand why you require a drug at all. "I ran back to walmart to find out my ex wife already went and paid full price for it and today she is demanding 1/2 of the money back." -- Your ex-wife is not in a position to demand anything. If it turns out that there was another, less expensive antiviral that could have been prescribed, she's not entitled to reimbursement. Unless there is medical justification that the med HAD to be Tamiflu, she can't submit a request (a request, NOT a demand) for reimbursement. This is something that has to be taken up with an insurance company and not in-store pharmacy. Answered by Merlyn Ogata 1 year ago.

there have been some comments of vomiting and diarrhea, yet in truth indications are that of the known flu. that is basically a distinctive rigidity of the flu virus. could you have allergic reactions - fever could properly be contemporary with allergic reactions, besides as coughing from post nasal drip? i'm questioning it is your case, because of fact the swine flu isn't lasting too long in human beings (restoration time is tremendously reliable). in case you're fearful, it does no longer harm calling your wellbeing care professional. they are asserting to no longer run to the ER the two.. although that is extra useful to be secure then sorry.

Rx Expire Date?
Does the expire date give pleanty of room? Asked by Torri Kuchem 1 year ago.

Yes, plenty of room. For years I told my patients to pitch items after their expiration date. See the links below and you'll see how wrong I (and many other folks) was about expiration dates. The Medical Letter, a respected source of independent information about drugs, covered the topic in a 2002 article. It reported that certain medicines, stored in high humidity and other bad conditions, stayed good to use for 1.5 to nine years after their expiration dates. For instance, Symmetrel (amantadine) and Flumadine (rimantidine), anti-viral drugs used to prevent and treat influenza, withstood 160-degree temperatures and were good after the equivalent of 25 years of ordinary storage. "Many drugs stored under reasonable conditions retain 90 percent of their potency for at least five years after the expiration date on the label, and sometimes much longer," the report stated. Contrary to common belief, there is little scientific evidence that expired drugs are toxic. The Medical Letter could find just one reported case in which a patient may have been harmed by taking an expired drug. It occurred more than 40 years ago and involved a patient who may have suffered kidney damage from taking expired tetracycline, an antibiotic. Since then, tetracycline products have been changed to eliminate the problem. Some medications do have a short shelf-life, nitroglycerin and liquid antibiotics. Eyedrops and eardrops should also be discarded after 3 months, mainly because of sterility issues. But for the most part prescription tablets and capsules are very stable when stored in dark, dry, cool places. Please see the links for much more in-depth info on this topic. I hope this helps. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Leo Kormann 1 year ago.

In the pharmacy I work in, our computer system always gives us a date of one year from the date of fill. If the actual label on the bottle gives us a different expiration date, we can go in and change the date to be accurate. When we walk our shelves for outdated meds, we always pull three months ahead of the actual month. Example-since we are in March now, we will actually pull April-May-June. The only way of knowing the exact expiration date is to get the date from the stock bottle. Once that date has arrived, we will not recommend a patient take the medication since it loses potentency over time. Answered by Gayla Nagata 1 year ago.

Plenty of room they get what is called the self life or the expiration date by the time it take for one thirst of the active ingredient to slow a decrees of 10%.. In other word if the time is one year for the most part after three time that leath 3 years 33% will have a decrees of 10%. The shorted the time the faster it drops. Answered by Margene Kanady 1 year ago.

Your prescription is always going to be completed before you get to the expiration date. This is true with things that have a regular schedule, such as taking a certain medication in the morning every day, etc. However, things such as creams that are used whenever a certain skin problem, etc. may expire before it is all used. When medications expire, the main ingredient will become either too dispersed, or are completely rendered inactive by other things. Answered by Tesha Werbelow 1 year ago.

Legally, this is likely unlawful to save those pills once the priority for which they were prescribed has been alleviated. So, do not carry them round on your motor vehicle, or everywhere else the position a nosy patrol officer would change into suspicious. yet, for sensible motives, save those pills. there'll positively be an afternoon once you're in severe discomfort for some reason, and it will be a discomfort contained in the @ss to bypass to the well being care service, get a clean prescription, and get the prescription filled. do merely not get hooked in this stuff. dependancy to hydrocodone isn't uncommon. merely ask Corey Haim. Oh, wait. you may't ask him anymore. And, those pills will very last looooooong after the expiration date. The FDA calls for all drugs to have an arbitrary 3 year expiration, in spite of if easily the drugs ought to very last 10+ years. merely yet another celebration of ways the FDA extremely isn't severe about controlling the fee of medication.
