Question: Dear Dr

Last time I communicated with you I was complaining about not having any pregnancy symptoms. You said that is fine. Now I have had my first ultra sound and got a 155 bpm. Anyhow, now the preganancy sysmptoms have kicked in to their peak. I was having very high nausea and vomiting. So my doctor gave me Navidoxine to use as and when need basis. I want to know if this drug pregnanacy safe. Also please lt me know the minimum time allowed in between 2 dose. As of now, I am taking this medicine every 36 hours. The affect of each dose lasts until 36 hours and after that I can feel heavy nausea again.

Thanks.

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.

My nephew, 8years old had an internal injury on his right kidney. Doctors did a surgery on his tummy to remove the blood from inside. after 2 weeks the kid started complaining on pain in the tummy. after an ultra sound examination, doctors found that haematoma around the right kidney had increased & there was free fluid around the haematoma and in the pelvis.



- Is there any reason to remove the kidney?

- What treatment should he be given?



Rgds,

Esmail
