Hr has developed condition called acute alcoholic gastritis or acute pancreatitis. He needs hospitalisation urgently to1) rehydrate. 2) stop alcohol. 3) treat gastritis. If left on his own and try home remedies he is likely not to recover and condition getting worsened. Following management of his acute condition. He needs rehabilitation and complete absteinance from alcohol which is an uphill task. Relapses are very very common. So he may land up with liver damage sooner or later. At least it takes a decade or more for the liver to be damaged permanently which is known as alcoholic cirrhosis. Those patients life span is limited and liver transplant is the only life saving way. But is very expensive. You may take the help of aa. (alcoholic anonymous group) in your locality. They will be ever willing to help. If the patient is in mumbai. I can take charge of his ailment and treat him. I have been dealing with such problems of hard vote addicts since past 23 years.

I am getting orgasm very soon during masturbation. What should I do to enhance the duration? Please answer me.

I am getting orgasm very soon during masturbation. What should I do to enhance the duration? Please answer me.
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Please don’t panic. You must understand premature ejaculation. Premature ejaculation is diagnosed when you have premature ejaculation within one or two minute of sex, continuously several times with the same partner for over six months. There is nothing called premature ejaculation while doing masturbation. Premature ejaculation occurs when a man ejaculates sooner during sexual intercourse than he or his partner would like. Premature ejaculation is a common problem which happens due to psychological stress and anxiety in majority of people. After confirming that these are not due to diabetics, hypertension or any other organic problems, for this reason, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), such as sertraline (Zoloft), paroxetine (Paxil) or fluoxetine (Prozac, Sarafem), are used to help delay ejaculation. If SSRIs don't improve the timing of your ejaculation, your doctor may prescribe the tricyclic antidepressant clomipramine (Anafranil). I don't see any requirement of medicines for you. Two natural treatments for PE that have shown promise are red ginseng and pomegranate juice. Ginseng is thought to increase nitric oxide production, leading to improved blood flow. Pomegranate juice is a potent antioxidant and can help too. Japan oil can help if massaged externally. Psychological reasons usually get cleared with sex therapy. I suggest online sex therapy. Take care.

You should continue myonext. But main treatment of pcos is not drugs, it's life style changes- diet and exercise. If periods are delayed by more than 2 weeks, you should consult gynecologist to take drugs for starting periods.

I want to ask you What is the medicine for cough cold fever and weakness.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
I want to ask you What is the medicine for cough cold  fever and weakness.
Sneezing, sore throat, a stuffy nose, coughing - everyone knows the symptoms of the common cold. It is probably the most common illness. In the course of a year, people in the united states suffer 1 billion colds. What can you do for your cold or cough symptoms? besides drinking plenty of fluids and getting plenty of rest, you may want to take medicines. There are lots of different cold and cough medicines, and they do different things. Nasal decongestants - unclog a stuffy nose...i.e ................ nasal dop/spray.....nasivion Cough suppressants - quiet a cough...................................... syp. Brozedax Expectorants - loosen mucus so you can cough it up.............syp...zeet expectorant Antihistamines - stop runny noses and sneezing.....................tab/syp....levocetirizine Pain relievers - ease fever, headaches, and minor aches and pains.......tab..flucold plus . Here are some other things to keep in mind about cold and cough medicines. Read labels, because many cold and cough medicines contain the same active ingredients. Taking too much of certain pain relievers can lead to serious injury. Do not give cough medicines to children under four, and don't give aspirin to children. Finally, antibiotics won't take. take cap. zevit for weekness.

Do not worry about the length as 3 inches is sufficient for sex and causing pregnancy. But as you say that semen comes with urine but not at the time of sex, you need to get the urethral passage checked to see whether there is any interconnection between the passages. So consult an urologist in your area for proper diagnosis and treatment.
