Gastric upset (probably hyperacidity or mild gastritis) following earlier treatment, should be settling down in a few days. The unease can be corrected by taking small meals more frequently. Plus avoiding remaining hungry or on empty stomach for long time. Avoiding excess tea or coffee also alcohol and aerated sweetened drinks like colas. Keep away from bakery items and pastries. It is better to exercise daily for over 1 hour, even brisk walk itself is fine, certain yogasanas also help. If symptoms are persistent, then it is better to consult your doctor or come back here. Using PPI to reduce excess acid is beneficial. Thanks.

A therapeutic diet in itself can solve many of your problems. Dietary therapy prescribed by a registered dietitian is needed. You need to provide me daily food intake example. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed. Eat a balanced diet as prescribed by a registered dietitian, I being a registered dietitian and doctor have been successfully helping patients achieve their optimum weight goals and help in several diseases. The best diet is one which is healthy and well balanced with foods from all the food groups, and one which is varied and that you can stick to I being a registered dietitian strongly accommodate the patients own preferences without the patient feeling that they are on a diet not compromising the weight management goals. I will also prescribe medicines that will speed up the time to achieve your weight management goals and help heal many of your lifestyle diseases. Check my tips blog on lybrate to see more details on healthy diet for your problems. I will need to carry out detailed assessment in your case, after assessing your personal challenges to weight management, I will recommend a strategy to gradually change habits and attitudes that have sabotaged your past efforts.

Are Trifluoperazine and Clozapine compatible with each other or are they contra-indicated, as I am on those drugs to counter my Schizophrenia? I am put on thee drugs recently. Please confirm.

MD - Psychiatry

No they are not contra indicated with each other. Generally when clozapine is used, it is used alone in equivalent dose of required antipsychotics for the reason to control symptoms. Side effects decides about combining two or more drugs generally to reduce side effect of high dose of individual drug.

My TSH count is 8.96. I am using thyronorm 50 mg. Is it a right tablet.
Kindly advice.
lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. For hypothyroidism treatment that is the right tablet. However, the dose being taken is not adequate. Because when on treatment for complete control of all symptoms of hypothyroidism TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L. With a level of 9.96 mU/L, most of the problematic symptoms will continue to be there. Thanks.

For hypothyroidism only treatment is taking thyroxine tablets in prescribed dosage regularly without fail for life. Plus avoid cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, soya and soya products and coffee. Use whole grain flour breads, consume a lot of green vegetables (other than those mentioned) and exercise regularly. For you (uric acid 7.1 mg) if there is no symptom then there is no need for any medicine. All those with high uric acid are not likely to suffer with gout or any other problem. Your level is marginally high and nothing to worry about. Continue jogging.

When on treatment with thyroxine tsh levels should be maintained between 3 to 4 milli units/ml. Once the treatment is started, it is necessary to check tsh level after 6 to 8 weeks. I think you have done it, and still the tsh is showing a higher level. It means current dose is inadequate. If you give details of her tsh level when diagnosis was made along with her height and weight, I can guide in terms of correct dose for her. But even otherwise she needs to increase the dose. Initially tsh needs to be checked every 6 to 8 weeks, till it is brought to desired level as mentioned above. With regards.
