Which is better? Gatorade or Pedialyte?
 
01:17
http://www.rxwiki.com/condition/diarrhea Ask a pharmacist your questions now! http://www.rxwiki.com/askrx/questions When your child is experiencing diarrhea, with or without vomiting, large amounts of fluid are lost from the body, which can lead to a more serious condition called dehydration. When looking for ways to keep your sick child or baby hydrated, many parents turn to gatorade. Although gatorade and pedialyte may seem similar, they actually have quite a few important differences especially in children.Gatorade and Pedialyte are two different electrolyte solutions Doctors recommend Pedialyte over Gatorade, because Pedialyte contains the right amount of sugar in balance with sodium to help regain what your child has lost through diarrhea and vomiting. It is formulated to contain a good balance of minerals and nutrients. Pedialyte contains sodium, glucose (sugar), potassium, chloride, and zinc. With that being said, Gatorade products are not usually recommended for children under to years of age because the sugar content is very high. In addition, Gatorade is low in sodium, which is an important electrolyte lost during diarrhea and vomiting. In fact, sugary drinks may actually make the situation worse and cause more diarrhea, and in turn increase the risk of dehydration. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist to determine the right amount of Pedialyte for your child.

If I Have A Penicillin Allergy Does That Mean I Will Be Allergic to Other Antibiotics?
 
01:12
For more information visit http://www.rxwiki.com/ Up to 10 percent of people report being allergic to penicillin or the penicillin class of antibiotics, making it the most commonly reported drug allergy. If you are allergic to penicillin, it’s recommended to avoid medicines in the same antibiotic class such as amoxicillin and ampicillin. Certain antibiotics that should be used with caution in penicillin allergic patients include drugs in the cephalosporin class such as cephalexin (Keflex). Cephalosporins have a low rate of causing an allergic reaction in people who are allergic to penicillin, but their use should still be monitored in these people. Remember, just because you show allergic symptoms after taking penicillin doesn’t mean that you will react to related drugs, such as amoxicillin, but it increases the chances that you might. Also, just because you had a reaction to penicillin (or any other drug) at one point doesn’t mean you will have the same reaction later on. The best decision is to always watch for signs of an allergic reaction such as a rash, hives, or trouble breathing. Make sure to contact your doctor if you have signs of an allergic reaction and seek medical care if you have difficulty breathing. Always let your pharmacist and doctor know if you have a penicillin allergy.

The Nose Knows: Neti Pot Safety And Use
 
02:22
http://www.rxwiki.com/ As the use of neti pots to rinse out the sinuses has become more popular, concerns about the safety of these devices have also surfaced. However, experts say that with proper care and practices, these devices can be safe and helpful for irritated sinuses. What's a Neti Pot? Neti pots are small devices, often ceramic and teapot-shaped, that are filled with a saline (salt water) solution and held up to one nostril. In an interview with dailyRx News, Tom Schnorr, RPh, CCN, owner of Apothecary Shop Pharmacy and Austin Compounding Pharmacy in Austin, TX, explained that the liquid goes in one nostril and out the other, clearing the sinuses of pollen and debris along the way. "Our sinuses are coated with a thick mucus layer that our body creates to protect the tissue," Schnorr said. "... We are just literally washing it as if we were washing our hands, and we are pulling the mucus layer off — which has been trapping all the pollen — so our sinuses will make a fresh new layer each day, or twice a day." A Neti How-To Schnorr noted that many patients don't know how to use the neti pot at first, or they find it uncomfortable. He recommended bending over quite low — until the head is below the hips — and using the neti pot over a bathtub instead of over a sink, until the body adjusts and gets used to the process.

Omega-3s are naturally found in fish, vegetable oils and nuts — especially walnuts, flax seeds, salmon and leafy vegetables. These essential fatty acids are important for cell-to-cell communication in the brain. They also play an important role in the body's immune and inflammatory system.

How Viagra Could Help Prevent Type 2 Diabetes

www.rxwiki.com The little blue pill may have found another use outside the bedroom. A new study from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine found that sildenafil (brand name Viagra) may improve insulin sensitivity and reduce a biomarker that signals an increased risk of heart and kidney disease in prediabetes patients. In prediabetes, blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not high enough to be classified as type 2 diabetes. "We need additional strategies to help slow the progression from prediabetes to diabetes," said study author Nancy J. Brown, MD, a professor of medicine at Vanderbilt, in a press release. "Weight loss and exercise regimens can be difficult to maintain, and some current medications have been limited by concerns about adverse effects. Sildenafil and related drugs could offer a potential avenue for addressing the rising number of diabetes diagnoses."

www.rxwiki.com Eating on-the-go has become a major trend in modern society. But if you're looking to give your health a boost, you may want to consider preparing your meals at home instead. A new study from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH) found that eating more meals prepared at home may reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In fact, eating about two homemade meals a day — or about 11-14 homemade meals a week — was linked to a 13 percent lower risk of type 2 diabetes compared to eating less than six. "The trend for eating commercially prepared meals in restaurants or as take-out in the United States has increased significantly over the last 50 years," said lead study author Geng Zong, PhD, a research fellow at HSPH, in a press release.

How Should Antidepressants Be Discontinued?
 
01:16
http://www.rxwiki.com/articles/news_s... Ask a pharmacist your questions now! http://www.rxwiki.com/askrx/questions Antidepressants are used to treat depression. It is very important not to suddenly stop taking an antidepressant in order to prevent discontinuation syndrome. Antidepressant discontinuation syndrome includes various symptoms such as anxiety, feelings of sadness, headaches, dizziness, and nausea and vomiting. These symptoms may occur if an antidepressant is stopped suddenly. These symptoms can occur if you have been taking an antidepressant such as paroxetine or sertraline for longer than 6 weeks and suddenly stop taking your medication. I do want to mention that antidepressants can take several weeks to become effective. Therefore, it is important not to stop taking your medication if you do not initially see a response. If you want to stop treatment and your doctor has agreed, then your doctor will gradually lower your dose until your medication is stopped. Your doctor will work with you to develop a plan to lower your dose over about two to four weeks. Generally, the antidepressant dose will be reuced by about 25% per week until the medication is stopped. It is important to let your doctor know if you are experiencing any feelings of sadness or your depression begins to worsen while your medication dose is reduced. As with any medication, ask your doctor or pharmacist any questions you may have.
