Hi Welcome to Health Care Magic......
Meftal spas is mefenemic acid which belongs to a group of NSAID Non steroidal antiinflammatory drugs.They are good when taken for acute problems and for a short course . Long time ingestion has many problems - It causes - Gastritis , Renal problems - if taken for long can cause Renovascular hypertension, renal failure, It also has antiplatelet effect and so increases chances of blood loss leading to low heamoglobin-Anaemia.My advice get your headache evaluated - know the cause and get an appropriate medication.Try avoiding it to extent possible for it has many sideeffects on long term use.

Child age = 5.5 yrs. Suffering with fever since 5 days Fever peak was 103+ once while normally it reaches to 101-102. Crocin didn t work so we have been giving Crocin + Meftal (5ml each) and tht takes care for 6 hrs. we repeat medication in 8 hrs (approx). The fever doesn t seem to come down in terms of frequency :(. Saw a ped also, he says we will wait since blood report and urine report show no infection. I will be doing Dengue test tomorrow. Question: How safe is Meftal-P for kids every 8 hrs? and is it safe to give Meftal + crocin together? What else I can do for my kid?

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,

Hello.
I'm male.
I'm 45 years old and I got high pressure blood since 17. I am currently taking 5 drugs to control (not at all) my high pressure blood.
In a recent Renal Angiography was discovered that I have my left kidney hypotrophic with important loss of parenchyma in the middle and lower thirds.
Analyses of plasma renin revealed that is high.

This hypotrophic kidney (left) is working by 37% and 63% right according to a renal scintigraphy.
The recommendation of my doctor(nephrology) is to get me out my hypotrophic kidney to control the high pressure blood and avoid having to take so many drugs.

What is your opinion on this?
