Hi everyone. Sometimes you go to google to search for drugs and supplements and the one you think is appropriate for use.
However, in most cases, you do not get what you are looking for because they are not written to specifically meet your needs and you get confused with the vast amount of information you find there. I understand how it feels to surf through the net and forums and not find someone to talk to.
Well that does not have to continue.
I have decided to start this thread to so you can have somebody to talk to on matters relating to drugs and supplements.

I will be glad to answer your questions. Cheers!

My Dear Recent Studies shows that people that consume lots of Supplements are Predispose to Cancer.
Make sure your Dr. prescribe the right Supplements for You.
My advice is that you Eat a Balance Diet with lots of Fruits and Veges with little supplement

You really don't need drug to enhance your reading.
Read as Much as You can in every 'instance' you have to study' but do it frequently to catch up with loss time.
And remember to eat adequately cos mental stress consume a lot of energy

]Taking supplements is not bad but you need to know why exactly you are taking what. Rose Hip Vit C is basically for those who are having bone and those who need an high dose of vitamin C. Primrose oil helps women handle menopausal syndromes. Biotic is necessary for good hair, nail and skin.
Vitamin A helps with better vision.

ASA, Acetylsalycylic acid does have side effects as there is no drug without side effects just that some are more pronounced than the other.
ASA comes in different milligrams: 75mg, 300mg, etc. Two things definitely determines the side effect. The milligram you are taking and for how how long you are taking it.
The most pronounced side effect is stomach ulcer. That shouldnt be a problem though if you take it with food.
Hope that answers you question? smiley wink

Whats d dosage of cafigot
Cafergot contains the chemical substances called ergotamine and caffeine. It is used to relieve headaches not responding to paracetamol or other commoner analgesics. The adult dose is two tablest at the onset of the headache. Then one tablet at the sign of another one. but not more than 6 tablets a day. smiley wink

M2 tone is a herbal drug made by Charak Company to help modulate a woman hormones thus helping with hormonal balance. It improves uterine health for fertility. The scientific nature of M2-Tone is not in doubt.
M2 tone is effective and I have seen people take it for that purpose. The normal dose for irregular menstrual cycle is two tablets morning and night for at least 3 months. Read more about your M2 tone at http://www.punchng.com/health/m2-tone-addyzoa-as-supplement-fertility-treatment/ and www.charak.com. Please consult with your doctor for more clarity. Hope that answers your question?

Ovacare is a specially designed micronutrient formulation to support the requirement of women, who are trying to conceive. According to a study conducted by Rina Agrawal a consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, lifestyle is a major cause of multiple micronutrient deficiencies that make it more difficult for women to conceive. The idea behind Ovacare is to put together these micronutrients that are not readily available in our common foods so that women trying to conceive can have a better chance. Your chance of getting pregnant with Ovacare is high and with great hope. Hope that answered your question? wink smiley

Hi mummiesgirl, Evergreen woman is just as effective as M2 tone that fatme asked about. It is effective if you take it consistently for three months or more although its price is high. It worths it. Hope that answered your question?
