Does Lialda come in IV form?

No, they dont. For any of the UC medicines to work, they must be taken orally (b/c they work topically on the large intestine). Thus, taking it intravenously would be a moot point.

 However, if you cant swallow Lialda pills, try Pentasa. The pills can be opened up and sprinkled onto food (like
 applesauce or yougart). Pentasa has the same active ingrediant as Lialda.

Lantus versus levemir insulin?

Insulin of any type causes your body to better use the sugar in your system. Insulin ALSO helps the body convert unused sugar to fat.
 Most patients, when they use insulin, gain weight.

 There are only two ways to lose weight:
 1) Exercise more. Use more calories than you eat.
 2) Eat less. Eat fewer calories than you use.

There are some recent studies that indicate that Lantus works better if you split your dosage into twice a day. Most doctors say take it at night, but new evidence sasy that you should take 1/2 in the morning and 1/2 in the evening. Doing this has reduced my rapid insulin intake by about 1/3. You might want to talk to your doctor about this.

How long does suboxone withdrawal last?

Some slight symptoms can last 2-3 weeks, but those should be pretty mild. After 8 days, you should not be REAL achy. I know exactly what you are going through, just tough it out and in a week or so, you will have completely gotten through it. Try taking hot baths or sitting in a spa, that will help with the muscle aches. Try taking some Benadryl at night to help sleep.

How's the new medication januvia working?

My wife takes Januvia. It wasn't quite enough so the doc tried Janumet. It didn't work out, so now she's back on the Januvia and Glucomet? at night.
 At one time she used diet and exercise to successfully become diabetes free, after losing 180 pounds with a stomach operation. Unfortunately, her knees and one hip went bad and she gained some of the weight back and now is trying these things while recovering. So there seems to be an awful lot of trial and error in treating diabetes. I would definitely try exercise and diet like Mr.Peachy suggested before moving on to medications.

Can Ortho tri cyclen lo be used as emergency contraception?

You CAN use birth control pills as EC, but the large dose will make you quite sick. Better to use PlanB. If you want to use the pills, call your doctor for the exact dosage.
If you had unprotected sex while taking your sugar pills you should look into plan b. If you had been taking regular birth control pills before having sex you'd be fine.

Is Maxalt MLT REALLY safe since it contains Phenylalanine?

Actually, Phenylalanine is a perfectly safe Amino Acid that is used in a few "bad things" on the market. It's used as an ingredient in Aspartame and in antifreeze... but that doesn't make the Amino Acid itself bad.

Loestrin 24 FE and Heavy bleeding and cramps?

This is normal. Some birth controls will cause these uncomfortable sort of period fluctuations in women. Why did you change from seasonique? If you didn't experience problems with that one, I would stick to it. For some women  birth control pills can be very menacing and cause more trouble than they're worth.

Times for Actoplus Met?

The ONLY reason to take this drug is if you are insulin resistant. That includes, type two diabetic, pre-diabetic, or gestational diabetic. Possibly if you have PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome), but that's doubtful.

If it is making "this person" sick, have them discontinue its use and see a doctor. (preferably a different one). Actos, one of the two ingredients, is linked with premature heart failure. There is absolutely no reason to take this drug when there are so many safer and healthier alternatives.

You're supposed to take it a half hour before meals. Losing weight is more about healthy diet and less about drugs.

Does diovan interfere with my bowels my stool is so soft it gets stuck on way out?

Pain Killers usually make you constipated. However soft stools are not really a serious problem even if it means wiping many more times. I have just escaped two impacted bowels, that is constipation for several days where the stool is so hard you cannot get it out, need manual assistance. I would swap this for a nice soft sticky stool any day.
