is no side effect if i take multi vitamins at the same time i'm taking pills?

i'm taking pills but at the same time i want to take multi vitamins, is there any side effect for this?
There might be an interaction. Certain medicines and certain supplements can interfere with each other. Tell your doctor or pharmacist what you are taking.
It depends on the actual pills and the actual vitamins. Ask your pharmacist and read the prescription info you were given!
it would really depend on what kind of pills i cant think of any but talk to your doctor or a pharmacists he will he able to help you out.
you can take both at the same time., there are no side effects for this.But dont take the vitamin pills continuously; take the vitamin pills for 15 days then stop taking the vitamin pills for 15 days , go on like this.
water sluble vitamins as ( C and B complex ) have no side effect
but others do

Is nano-technology something to get very excited about with regard to it's use in medicine?

Good question. Check out :
As long as it's not used to Borgify us all!
Well, to me everyone is excited about nanotech, but it really has some interesting application. However, I'm not sure the potential in Medcine.

is nanotechnology better or medicine?

Obviously nano tech is far better than medicine. The future lies in the hands of nano technitions. After 15 years the estimated nano industry is more than $15,000,000,000,000
Your question assumes nanotechnolgy and medicine are two different things. However nanotechnology is an important part of medicine.
Well they are poles apart.
As such for small diseases medicines are definitely better and nanotechnology cannot be used to cure common simple diseases.
One more thing to be noted if there is a disease like AIDS nanotechnology cannot take all the virus out on a large scale.
On the other hand for operations nanotechnology is not better than medicine it is better than surgery.
If i am unable to answer your question please do tell me in which context you are referring these terms to.
If you are suffering then obviously medicine is more better then nanotechnology. If u die, then what is the use of nanotechnology.
ofcourse nanotechnology is better...the less pain and the more gain...
You did not elaborate. I do believe you want to decide between studying nano-tech and medicine, I think you are not decided and want to make decision on the bases of scope in future, both have lots of frontiers to explore, money is usually is dependent on supply and demand.So make up your mind multidisciplinary is aways possible.
how can you compare or replace nanotechnology with medicine.these are two entirely different things.the possible relation between these can be : "nanotechnology could help improove and discover new medicines,ways they act,ways of their administration,etc."
For Biotech u need to study Bionanotechnology. U can make an Honours course in any field of biology. Like Biochemistry, Zoology, Human Genetics etc. For this U will have to study medical 11 and 12 standard and take a course later in Bionanotechnology.
Nanotechnology is a non medical field. For this you will have to take non med 11 and 12 standard. Ur stronge subjects have to be physics.
I hope it helps u!
nanotechnology is better. in 11 th std u cannot choose biotech bcz no universities are offering .u can join bsc biotech or btech- biotech only after the completion of intermediate. all the best
NANO is full of that Engg stuff with equations and calculations,. BIO TECH, NANO, done beiile in these stuffs... and BEWARE HYPES are created thru MEDIA.. Jus analyse the following?1. Whats your potential.2. How far u can go in one feild,,3. The failures u overcame during ur academics.. 4. The place u live and the Support From ur Family (eg: a farmers son (its difficuilt) cant become a ROCKET SCIENTIST.. 5. Belive in . HARD work... DOne u are a _____________ and what u want to be
nano technology might one day involve molecule or cell sized programmable computer chips with zappers(maybe tiny lasers) to do in toxins chemicals, and invading pathogens.medicine is one application for doesn't look like either or

Is Mylan just like a Valium?If not what is it and what are the side effects?

I have never heard of Mylan and googled it. There is a drug company called Mylan Laboratories but I found no drug called Mylan. You might want to check the name again.
Mylan is a generic company that makes drugs, not an actual drug. Valium belongs to a family of antianxiety drugs known as benzodiazepines that includes alprazolam (Xanax), chlordiazepoxide (Librium), diazepam (Valium), and lorazepam (Ativan).

Is my rapid heartbeat normal after Prednisone??

I have just finished a short-term 11 day course of Prednisone. 40mg for 5 days, 30mg for 3days, etc. The heartbeat thing didn't start right away, maybe the 4th day or so. It increased with each day. I took my last dose, 10mg, yesterday, and now am unable to do normal routine things around the house like washing dishes. My heartbeat is so pronounced and feels like its coming out of my chest. It's a sort of watery kind of raspy beat. Very scary. I called my heart doctor and she assured me it was normal. Somehow I just don't feel convinced. How long does it take for the Prednisone to leave the body? Has anyone experienced the same condition and what was the outcome?
Prednisone may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away: headache
difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep
inappropriate happiness
extreme changes in mood
changes in personality
bulging eyes
thin, fragile skin
red or purple blotches or lines under the skin
slowed healing of cuts and bruises
increased hair growth
changes in the way fat is spread around the body
extreme tiredness
weak muscles
irregular or absent menstrual periods
decreased sexual desire
increased sweating Some side effects can be serious. If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately: vision problems
eye pain, redness, or tearing
sore throat, fever, chills, cough, or other signs of infection
loss of contact with reality
muscle twitching or tightening
shaking of the hands that you cannot control
numbness, burning, or tingling in the face, arms, legs, feet, or hands
upset stomach
irregular heartbeat
sudden weight gain
shortness of breath, especially during the night
dry, hacking cough
swelling or pain in the stomach
swelling of the eyes, face, lips, tongue, throat, arms, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs
difficulty breathing or swallowing
itching If you experience a serious side effect, you or your doctor may send a report to the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program online [at or by phone [1-800-332-1088].
If your uncomfortable, call your doctor again and tell him. I will tell you though that after taking a 6 day course of methylprednisone I was all jacked up for days and am still trying to get my body back to normal. My heart isn't racing but I feel like my eyes are bouncing in my head.
Symptoms of an overdose include obesity (especially around the stomach); a round face; increased hair growth (especially around the face); acne; bruising; increased blood pressure; swollen hands, feet, or ankles (fluid retention); and sore or weak muscles
Prednisones main problem is it does have many side effects, but as it leaves the body the symptoms go away.
I experienced this side effect with Prednisone, but after 3-4 days off the meds, they went away. Different people react different ways, but if your doctor isn't worried then you probably need not worry either.
However, if it continues or gets worse, insist on a check.
Oh yeah, this is normal. Feels terrible when it is happening but normal. I take it for asthma when it gets bad. If you noticed it probably made you have more energy and not feel so bad. It gives you a feeling of false wellness. That is why people get addicted to it. You feel better than you actually are. Since you took the last pill yesterday you should start feeling better soon. It makes me shakey towards the end and kinda mean! rofl This is normal too and the tachycardia, fast heart beat will go back to normal. Drink plenty of liquids unless you are fluid restricted and it will help. Feel better soon.
I guess that my first question is why do you have a heart doctor? What kind of underlying medical conditions do you have? As for the tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), it is a somewhat uncommon side effect. Although, if you have an underlying heart disease you may be predisposed to arrythmias. Your age may also play a role in how well you tolerate the fast heart rate. If at any time you get short of breath, light headed, or have chest pain you should seek emergency care immediately. CALL AN AMBULANCE--DO NOT DRIVE!! The half-life of prednisolone (the active part of prednisone) is about 3-4 hrs/dose, but if you are at the end of your course, it may take a few days to completely clear your system. Hope you get feeling better soon.

Is my ibuprofen dosing schedule fine?

I recently had a tendon injury near my heel and today have started taking ibuprofen. I plan to rest my feet until the 27th or the 1st, around 2 weeks. During this time I will take ibuprofen. I plan to take 200mg 4 times a day for a week, and then maybe stop a few days, and restart for the remainder until the deadline. Is this okay?Also, would my body adapt to that dosage in these 1-2 weeks?
Ibuprofen can be used to treat a fever, at which case your dosing is ideal, or to treat inflammation, for which your dosing is inadequate. Without knowing your vitals, it would be imprudent to tell you what to take, so I really think you should speak to your doctor or go to a pharmacy and ask a pharmacist (free advice usually). Hope you feel better. All I will say is that I don't think you'll get the relief you're seeking with the dose you're on now.
400mg every 6 to 8 hours is the recommended dosage
.also be carefull not to get hooked on them!
.You are recommended to take ibuprofen every 4-6 hours as needed for pain.Check with your Physician
Med student needs some more classes!
Assuming you are an adult then 200mg is inadequate. Minimum adult dose is 400mg three times per day. You can even go higher but should talk to your doctor.
Your body will not adapt to Ibuprofen, nor is it habit forming/addictive.

Is my doctor on drugs? Xanax confussion!?

My doctor gave me xanax to help me cope with panic attacks. He said only take it when your having one. But i heard you cant just take one pill and stop or you will go in seizures and get withdrawrls. HOW THE HELL am i supposed to just take it when I need to and then stop?. Also im on coreg to slow my heart rate, and dosnt xanax SLOW DOWN your heart? I think its time for me to get a new doctor..this is clearly not right. Or im just reading too much on the internet. Any ideas?
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Taking a Xanax is a lot like taking a shot of booze. It will slow down your heart if you're anxious and calming to helps you past the adrenaline surge that has your heart racing, but it has no direct cardiac effects. If you're an alcoholic and stop drinking you can have seizures and go into DT's. The way to avoid this mess is to take the Xanax only when you need, and don't get hooked on them.
Does your doctor know about the other medications you are taking? If so, he shouldn't have prescribed you something that could have a possible interaction. There are websites (sorry I don't know the names, but you can browse and find them easily) where you can enter in the med and how many mgs you take with another and it can give you POSSIBLE interactions. If you are worried, call the pharmacist and ask also - they are totally underrated, and are aware of possible drug interaction that could happen. You also will get out of having to pay for a visit just to ask a question.
If you feel that you aren't being taken care of with your current doc, then you need to find one that you are satisfied with. No one is ever happy in the end if they put up with a mediocre physician.
Take care.Edit: Here, I'm leaving you a link to one of the drug interactions search sites I found. I hope this helps. :)
You are reading too much into the info on the internet. Taking an occasional Xanax will not cause seizures or withdrawl symptoms. That happens when someone has been taking large doses for a long time; they can't quit cold turkey.
I don't think Xanax has an effect on your heart rate. Double check with your pharmacist to see if it does or if there is a known interaction w/ Coreg - I'm pretty sure there isn't.
Rather than dumping your doctor, why not ask him more questions. Find out if he can/will address your concerns. After you've tried to had your concerns addressed, then decide if this is the doctor for you. You can't expect any doctor to be mind reader - you need to tell him what you need from him. If he can give it - great. If he can't address your needs, then look for another doctor.
You heard wrong. Xanax is an ideal drug to take for panic attacks and where you heard this junk about seizures and withdrawal, well it isn't true.
I also take xanax. I take it when i feel an attack coming on. Not when the attack gets here. If you take it only when you need it you will not get dependent on it like some people do. People that get addicted usually do not take it like they should. I have never had a seizure nor have I ever went through withdrawals either and i have quit taking them when i had my youngest daughter so i would not worry about either of those just take them when you feel an attack coming on.
Your doctor should certainly be aware of the other drugs you are taking. I can't imagine a doctor not looking at your chart BEFORE prescribing a medication for you. You should have asked that question when you were in his office. I have been on Xanax for years for panic attacks. I am also on other meds. You could have problems getting off Xanax if you are taking it daily and large doses. If you take it only when you feel an attack coming on or during an attack, you are not addicted to it. Prepare a list of questions on paper for your next doctor's visit. As someone else said, you can check with your pharmacy too. And they are free.They are very helpful. Any time I have a drug question I ask my pharmacist.
