Is clarithromycin good for stomach ulcer. How to take this medicine for ulcer and how many days.
Stomach ulcers are usually caused by helicobacter pylori bacteria or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These can break down the stomach's defense against the acid it produces to digest food. The stomach lining then becomes damaged causing an ulcer to form. Let's discuss your concern in detail so that we can provide you a good quality medication plan and best advice.

Dear user. Thanks for the question. Hiv spread through contact between broken skin, wounds, or mucous membranes and hiv-infected blood or blood-contaminated body fluids. Deep, open-mouth kissing if both partners have sores or bleeding gums and blood from the hiv-positive partner gets into the bloodstream of the hiv-negative partner. Hiv cannot spread through saliva. Take care.

Btr D Tablet is a combination of four medicines: Bromelain, Diclofenac, Rutoside and Trypsin Chymotrypsin. Bromelain and Trypsin Chymotrypsin are enzymes. They increase blood supply and make the body produce substances that fight pain and swelling. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) in the brain that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Rutoside is an antioxidant which protects the body from damage by chemicals (free radicals) and further reduces swelling. You should not take this medicine while breastfeeding

The overdose of durapain tablet in arthritis is harmful. Durapain 75 mg/50 mg tablet is a combination of two medicines: diclofenac and tramadol, which relieves severe pain. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Tramadol is an opioid which works by blocking transmission of pain signals to the brain to lower pain perception.

There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis. But clinical studies indicate that remission of symptoms is more likely when treatment begins early with medications known as disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (dmards). Medicationsthe types of medications recommended by your doctor will depend on the severity of your symptoms and how long you've had rheumatoid arthritis. •nsaids. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) can relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Over-the-counter nsaids include ibuprofen (advil, motrin ib) and naproxen sodium (aleve). Stronger nsaids are available by prescription. Side effects may include stomach irritation, heart problems and kidney damage. •steroids. Corticosteroid medications, such as prednisone, reduce inflammation and pain and slow joint damage. Side effects may include thinning of bones, weight gain and diabetes. Doctors often prescribe a corticosteroid to relieve acute symptoms, with the goal of gradually tapering off the medication. •disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (dmards). These drugs can slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis and save the joints and other tissues from permanent damage. Common dmards include methotrexate (trexall, otrexup, others), leflunomide (arava), hydroxychloroquine (plaquenil) and sulfasalazine (azulfidine). Side effects vary but may include liver damage, bone marrow suppression and severe lung infections. •biologic agents. Also known as biologic response modifiers, this newer class of dmards includes abatacept (orencia), adalimumab (humira), anakinra (kineret), baricitinib (olumiant), certolizumab (cimzia), etanercept (enbrel), golimumab (simponi), infliximab (remicade), rituximab (rituxan), sarilumab (kevzara), tocilizumab (actemra) and tofacitinib (xeljanz). These drugs can target parts of the immune system that trigger inflammation that causes joint and tissue damage. These types of drugs also increase the risk of infections. In people with rheumatoid arthritis, higher doses of tofacitinib can increase the risk of blood clots in the lungs. Biologic dmards are usually most effective when paired with a nonbiologic dmard, such as methotrexate. Therapy your doctor may send you to a physical or occupational therapist who can teach you exercises to help keep your joints flexible. The therapist may also suggest new ways to do daily tasks, which will be easier on your joints. For example, you may want to pick up an object using your forearms. Assistive devices can make it easier to avoid stressing your painful joints. For instance, a kitchen knife equipped with a hand grip helps protect your finger and wrist joints. Certain tools, such as buttonhooks, can make it easier to get dressed. Catalogs and medical supply stores are good places to look for ideas. Surgery if medications fail to prevent or slow joint damage, you and your doctor may consider surgery to repair damaged joints. Surgery may help restore your ability to use your joint. It can also reduce pain and improve function. Rheumatoid arthritis surgery may involve one or more of the following procedures: •synovectomy. Surgery to remove the inflamed lining of the joint (synovium) can be performed on knees, elbows, wrists, fingers and hips. •tendon repair. Inflammation and joint damage may cause tendons around your joint to loosen or rupture. Your surgeon may be able to repair the tendons around your joint. •joint fusion. Surgically fusing a joint may be recommended to stabilize or realign a joint and for pain relief when a joint replacement isn't an option. •total joint replacement. During joint replacement surgery, your surgeon removes the damaged parts of your joint and inserts a prosthesis made of metal and plastic. Surgery carries a risk of bleeding, infection and pain. Discuss the benefits and risks with your doctor.

My uric acid level is 7.3 and creatinine is 1.02. My both feet and angel is swelling kindly suggest.
Most men with normal kidney function have approximately 0.6 to 1.2 milligrams/deciliters (mg/dl) of creatinine. Normal uric acid levels are 2.4-6.0 mg/dl (female) and 3.4-7.0 mg/dl (male) as you can see you have a slightly elevated uric acid level which is causing the swelling of feet and angel if you have an elevated blood uric acid level, and your healthcare provider thinks that you may be at risk for gout, kidney stones, try to eat a low purine diet. Foods that are high in purine include: all organ meats (such as liver), meat extracts and gravy yeasts, and yeast extracts (such as beer, and alcoholic beverages) asparagus, spinach, beans, peas, lentils, oatmeal, cauliflower and mushrooms foods that are low in purine include: refined cereals - breads, pasta, flour, tapioca, cakes milk and milk products, eggs lettuce, tomatoes, green vegetables cream soups without meat stock water, fruit juice, carbonated drinks peanut butter, fruits and nuts keep well hydrated, drinking 2 to 3 liters of water per day, unless you were told otherwise. Take all of your medications for hyperuricemia as directed avoid caffeine and alcohol, as these can contribute to problems with uric acid and hyperuricemia. Avoid medications, such as thiazide diuretics (hydrochlortiazide), and loop diuretics (such as furosemide or lasix®). Also, drugs such as niacin, and low doses of aspirin (less than 3 grams per day) can aggravate uric acid levels. Do not take these medications, or aspirin unless a healthcare provider who knows your condition told you. If you experience symptoms or side effects, especially if severe, be sure to discuss them with your health care team. They can prescribe medications and/or offer other suggestions that are effective in managing such problems. Drugs or treatments that may be prescribed by your doctor: your doctor or healthcare provider may prescribe medications if you have a high blood uric acid levels. These may include: non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (nsaid) agents and tylenol®- such as naproxen sodium and ibuprofen may provide relief of gout-related pain. Gout may be a result of a high uric acid level. If you are to avoid nsaid drugs, because of your type of cancer or chemotherapy you are receiving, acetaminophen (tylenol () up to 4000 mg per day (two extra-strength tablets every 6 hours) may help. It is important not to exceed the recommended daily dose of tylenol, as it may cause liver damage. Discuss this with your healthcare provider. Uricosuric drugs: these drugs work by blocking the reabsorption of urate, which can prevent uric acid crystals from being deposited into your tissues. Examples of uricosuric drugs include probenecid, and sulfinpyrazone. Xanthine oxidase inhibitors - such as allopurinol, will prevent gout. However, it may cause your symptoms of gout to be worse if it is taken during an episode of painful joint inflammation. Allopurinol may also be given to you, if you have a certain form of leukemia or lymphoma, to prevent complications from chemotherapy and tumor lysis syndrome - and not necessarily to prevent gout. With high levels of uric acid in your blood, as a result of your disease, the uric acid will collect and form crystals in your kidneys. This may occur during chemotherapy, and may cause your kidneys to fail. When to contact your doctor or health care provider: localized joint pain (especially in a toe or finger joint), that is red and inflamed. Shortness of breath, chest pain or discomfort; should be evaluated immediately. Feeling your heart beat rapidly (palpitations). Bleeding that does not stop after a few minutes. Any new rashes on your skin - especially if you have started any new medications.

Hi, I am 36 year old male. I take corticosteroid for eczema overdose for 3 month by mistake. And now I feel weakness, dizziness what can I do now?

BHMS & MD, MCAH
Homeopath, Vijayawada
Dear lybrate-user, corticosteroids, often called just steroids, are anti-inflammatory drugs. Most are synthetic forms of cortisone, a hormone naturally made in your adrenal glands. The best way to avoid overdose is to only take the medication according to your physician’s guidelines and report any alarming side effects or concerns that you have. Don't stop taking corticosteroid all of once, we have to tapper the dose. If you are experiencing only weakness and dizziness after taking overdose of corticosteroids, then boost your energy levels - start exercising, drink plenty of water and change to healthy diet and life style. As steroids are known to produce affects of many possible systems of body, based on the corticosteroid you are using, I suggest you to take an appointment for consultation, so that I can get the details of the case in depth and can rule out the exact changes or side affects and can guide you accordingly. With constitutional homeopathic treatment, we can treat not only affects of corticosteroids, but can address permanent cure to eczema as well.

Please check your serum uric acid levels. Your symptoms are of hyperuricemia. Hyperuricemia occurs when there’s too much uric acid in your blood. High uric acid levels can lead to several diseases, including a painful type of arthritis called gout.
