I have been recommended Ciplox Tz for a stomach infection twice a day for 5 days. Milk I understand is discouraged during treatment. What about Dahi or yoghurt, buttermilk. How long after dinner should the medicine be taken.

The purpose of taking medication on a full stomach is to prevent acidity or nausea. As long as you take a good meal you can take the medication immediately after the meal preferably while the food is still in your stomach so within two hrs is okay. If you wish to add dairy to your meals yogurt is good. As antibiotics kill the organisms in your gut, yogurt helps to maintain the good organisms helpful for digestion. I would recommend yogurt with your meals and antibiotic after meals as early as possible. Hope that helps.

Accidentally a used blood sugar checking needle stuck in my finger .does it cause any harm to me. What should I do?
Sorry to hear that. Was it used by you prior or someone else? Needle stick injuries are most likely related to three things. Hepatitis B, hepatitis C, HIV. Though the transmission rates are low with needle stick injuries it is safer to get yourself tested for these. So I would recommend Hep B antigen, Hep C antibody and HIV testing to be done and repeated after few weeks. Hope this helps.

There are alot of reasons for stomach pain. It could be acidity, gastritis, ulcer being the most common ones .You need to get a consultation to know whats going on. For temporary relief you could have curd and antacids to help you with your pain. Do not eat anything spicy or acidic like orange and lemons. Its better to get yourself evaluated.

My husband is having migraine from past 1 month he is taking tablets please tell me how many months it will take to cure completely? Or should he take tablet life long for migraine?

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
Migraine headaches do not stay continuously. They come and go. As they can occur any time there is only one thing that you can do is note down the how frequent migraine attacks happen, after what activity does he get these migraines, how long it lasts, which part of your head hurts, does anyone in family have similar trouble, Does bright light/loud sound/ lack of sleep bring headache, what medications help him and does he have an aura before he gets migraine. Aura is basically sensitivity to light ,sound and also nausea. Some people have aura before they get migraine and some do not. Its better to keep note of these above question and follow up with a doctor. If the frequency increases to more than two days in a week you should see a physician. When he has migraine try to sit in a dim light room with no noise. Usually the first treatment option is over the counter pain killers. But if you are having headache very often then I recommend a doctors visit. Hope this helps.

On corner of my upper lips there are two cuts and that patch is become so hard and it's paining. I can't open my mouth because then it will get stretch now please suggest me something because day by day it's increasing.

MBBS
General Physician, Hyderabad
What you are experiencing is cald Cheilitis meaning dry, crack lips specially in the corner of the mouth. If it is red and swollen and painful I would recommend an antibacterial cream Soframicin to be applied 3-4 times a day only to the affected area for a possible infection. Also Vitamin C deficiency can lead to this drying of lip. Limcee is Vit C chewable tablets to be taken daily 1-2 tablet a day. If the swelling, pain continues despite this you might need to take a consultation. Try and moisturize your lips as frequently as possible. Once you start this treatment you will see changes in approx 2-3 days. Hope this helps.

5 g/dl is considered very low and required immediate attention .Your sister requires blood transfusion to improve her Hb or she might have some problems. I would recommend you to take her to a nearby by hospital get her blood group tested and get her started on blood transfusion .Any level of Hb below 8 is considered severe. Once her Hb is restored to 8 or more then medications and diet changes can be started. Hope this helps. She requires immediate attention right now at the hospital.
