Question: I just found out today that I am pregnant. I think I may be 6 weeks. My periods are not regular so I was not concerned and last week I had an endoscopy without realising I was pregnant. Could this cause any issues? I have also had lovan and zoton during this time. On a couple of occassions I had inderal and 5mg of valium for anxiety. These all concern me now that I realise I am pregnant.

Thanks for posting your query.
The endoscopic procedure and the medicines you have taken do not have any noticeable effect in the growing baby since you have taken these only occasionally. Any harm to the baby is not likely.
If the ultrasound scan shows a normal viable pregnancy then I don't think there is much to be worried about. You will need to discuss about the further dosage schedule of these medicines with your gynecologist in view of pregnancy.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

I suffered a compound fractured patella requiring surgery/wiring 8 weeks ago. Since then I have struggled to get back into any sort of normal sleeping pattern resulting in about 4-6 interrupted hours of sleep at different times over the course of the day. I have been taking 10mg diazepam that has helped with anxiety but not sleeping

yes, I recently had a medical procedure on 6.12.14 and needed to take one misoprostol 200 mcg and one iburofen 800 mg at 11 pm on 6/11/14. The following morning 6/12/14, I had to take: one diazepam 10 mg; one misoprostol 200 mcg; one hydrocodone/aceaminophen 5-325; one iburofen 800 mg and will take one doxycline hyclate 100 mg capsules 6/13/14 at 6 pm. I am 60 years old. weight about 180. How long will it take to have all medications out of my blood stream for blood and urine/ mouth swab tests? I will be having a blood/urine/mouth swab test for life insurance which can be delayed until all medications are out of my system.
