    I don't have problems with headaches, but my brother does, and ibuprofen doesn't work for him.

  • My doctor just prescribed 500mg of Robaxin, and 600mg of Ibuprofen because of a neck strain and head pain.?

    It wasn’t until I got to the pharmacy I realized the dosage. I’m only 21 so I’m a little skeptical about taking 1100 mg of pills at once. The ibuprofen is 3 times a day. And the robaxin is every 8 hours. Is this bad?? Should I be worried.

  • Medical Assistant/Nurse use dirty needle for blood drawn?

    Best answer: NO ONE in the US reuses needles or any part of blood collection devices. They go straight to the needle drop. You saw your own blood, just as if you pricked yourself. Your skin bleeds from capillaries. That paranoid a thinking will cripple you.

  • This question is about to be mildly retarded to you, but how does something small as a gun bullet can kill grown men, and big animals?

    Best answer: Shape has a little to do with it, but the main reason is velocity. Force = Mass x Acceleration. Think of it this way. If you're lying in bed and I gently rest a brick upon your chest, it will be only mildly uncomfortable. But if I climb 12 feet up and throw the brick down onto your chest, it could kill you,... show more
    Best answer: Shape has a little to do with it, but the main reason is velocity. Force = Mass x Acceleration.

    Think of it this way. If you're lying in bed and I gently rest a brick upon your chest, it will be only mildly uncomfortable. But if I climb 12 feet up and throw the brick down onto your chest, it could kill you, even though the brick's weight hasn't changed. Speed of impact makes the difference, so a supersonic speed from a gun can make even a bullet dangerous. (In orbit, the speeds are so great that a paint chip once damaged the Space Shittle.)

  • Is it possible to have surgery to return my colon to normal size?

    I have had constant constipation for about 14 years now. I use the bathroom in 1-2 month intervals. I’m like this because my colon is far too big, and I cannot detect when I need to go.

    I have had constant constipation for about 14 years now. I use the bathroom in 1-2 month intervals. I’m like this because my colon is far too big, and I cannot detect when I need to go. Is there a type of surgery to where they can cut off a piece of my colon and stitch it back together? And before you suggest it, I have been taking many types on medicines- Miralax, stool softeners, laxatives, colon cleansers. Has anyone been in a similar situation like this? If so, what did you do and what advice do you have?

  • If I took 1mg of subutex (buprenorphine) for almost a year and stopped taking it 5 days ago, will I pass a drug test? Please help!!?

    Best answer: If it was prescribed for you, do not disclose it beforehand. If the test comes back positive, the testing company will inform the hiring company and the hiring company will follow their policy.

This is where they will ask and you provide documentation that it was prescribed. Then they will more than likely hire you. Do not try to detox or drink excessive amounts of water. Detox ingredients are found and too much water makes a dilute specimen, which is an automatic fail.

  • Help with ECG reading please?

    Best answer: It is hard to read an ECG as you said. Start with 1. The normal ECG, P, QRS, and T waves, the PR interval, QRS complex voltage reading. 2.

    Best answer: It is hard to read an ECG as you said. Start with
    1. The normal ECG, P, QRS, and T waves, the PR interval, QRS complex voltage reading.
    2. An ECG showing myocardial infarction with characteristic changes such as T wave inversion and ST segment depression.
    3. An ECG showing atrial fibrillation. An ECG showing atrial flutter. An ECG showing ventricular escape rhythm.
    4. Study ECG showing ventricular bigeminy, ectopics, and see AV node delay from the graph. Study right axis deviation and axis deviation due to hypertension. You may look into syndromes but I believe it is too hard for a student to get right away.
    5. Study method of applying defibrillator for atrial fibrillation.
    With these basics, you will go on to be very helpful in the coronary care unit. (I took training for a few months in the CCU)

    I'm 25 and a chronic pain patient and take Vicodin, MS Contin (morphine), and Valium. My pain management doctor randomly tests me to make sure I'm not taking illegal medications and to make sure I'm taking my prescribed medications. Anyway, I had my doctor's appointment a few days ago and was tested (saliva drug test). My doctor called me up the next day and said I had NO morphine and NO Valium in my system. That's impossible because the day before my appointment I went to the ER for severe pain and the hospital gave me a dosage of my own medications while I was there. I have documented proof of it. I haven't been able to get in contact with my doctor since it's the weekend. He didn't act like I was in trouble, but I don't want him to mistrust me. Should I call tomorrow and ask to be retested? And show him proof I had my medications in my system, and it was the fault of the test? Thank you
