Iodine dosage by Polly Gusslefield - Sun, 21 Feb 2016 16:44:20 EST ID:fMTiUAU1 No.53895 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I've recently just discovered how important iodine is for your body. Now knowing all of the amazing benefits taking iodine can have, I just purchased Lugol's iodine solution and am wondering the dosages. I'm not sure how many drops to take. I bought the 2% Lugol's. Also, I have a 14 month old toddler and I haven't seen anything online about how many drops to give myself AND my son. It's very frustrating because I don't want him to overdose but I also want my son to be healthy as can be. Please help :( 25 year old female if it means anything.

Sorry to burst your bubble but in general in the western world our normal diets provide more vitamins and minerals than we need. 95% of the population will be getting enough and supplementing over and beyone this has no benefit.
Historically there are some countries that lack iodine in the soil (eg New Zealand as far as I remember) which led to conditions such as hypothyroidism, goitre and cretinism. Now days table salt is supplemented with iodine to prevent this, but the amount of food grown and imported from overseas largely makes this unnecessary.
Different countries have different recommended doses of minerals, but a quick search shows the RDI of iodine for your son to be 90 micrograms per day and for you 150mcg per day. Im not sure how much is in a drop of your solution so you may need to try calculate that. Aim to take the RDI although remember that you will be getting more than the recommended daily intake as your normal foods will have iodine in too, although this will not be harmful.
Feeding your son (and yourself) a healthy, balanced and varied diet is the best thing you can do to make sure he is also getting all the other micronutrients he needs

You already get way more iodine than you need if you live in a developed country and eat regularly. The saly alone in foods these days gives you plenty of iodine. Dont do anything silly and take too much, iodine poisoning is not nice.

DO NOT give it to your baby unless your looking for a way to get it taken away by social services

Try to rule out the possible causes. If it is something natural and not industrial related it could be a big help to identify it early. If industrial could help narrow things down by the type of chemicals you have worked with.

so i looked it up and everything is says is: nonionic surfactants and ionic surfactants.
I started drinking hot lemon tea in the mornings and thats about it, but i dont htink it really helps. I also noticed that trembling and being off-track is high in the morgnings and evenings. i made an appointment to the doctor, so i might be fine for now.
if there is still a way to get rid of that, id give it a go.


Messed up breathing by Caroline Fonnershaw - Sun, 06 Mar 2016 12:09:56 EST ID:ADZB/dAw No.53921 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So I have a problem.
Yesterday I woke up, and I don't remember noticing it immediately so perhaps it came on at some point in the middle of the day, but it seemed like my body stopped doing the whole autobreathing thing. I was laying in bed on the verge of sleep and I'd keep jumping out of it realizing that I had stopped breathing. And I noticed this the rest of the day, while also feeling that I had a lump in my throat.

Going to sleep I had to power through the feeling of not breathing and eventually it worked and I woke up later. At this point in the day I am feeling better, as the lump in my throat has diminished in feeling. The breathing is still a bit weird, but I had thought that it was getting better because I'd notice myself not paying attention to it for bits, so I assumed that I must have been autobreathing.

However, I just now noticed something really fucked up. I can hold my breath without my body telling me that I'm doing something bad. I just held it for 30 seconds with no part of my brain being like "whoa dude you shouldn't be doing that." What the fuck? Does anyone know what might be going on?

The one thing that came to mind for me was the night before I took an ibuprofen but coughed in the middle of swallowing it, so it was an awkward swallow. However, I didn't feel weird or anything at the time, but is it possible that it's somehow related?

had this sensation a couple of times and got freaked out so i stayed awake. dont know what to do against it. what i realised though is, that i keep my breath during the day. so when I am stressed out or feeling numb I start inhaling, keeping breath in till my belly expands and then release with a slight dizzyness. doing a tiny bit yoga exercises (just for the breathing though without prezl poses) helped to maintain the times where I keep my breath short. Now i realised that I start breathing loudly in and holding breath for a short time, but I release soon afterwards. not good to watch but its an improvement. when i dont do those exercises i fall back into my old habit though

I'm currently studying a module on Psychiatry and another module on 'Health and Happiness'. In both modules, the concept of what 'Health' is has come up. In both areas, there seems to be a fairly strong suggestion that cultural relativism is involved.

One medical case is that of sickle cell disease; bad for Western societies, but good for areas where Malaria is prevalent.

For mental health, there is an issue that stigmatising alone can create a mental health problem. Erectile Dysfunction might be a physiological problem, but with a strong enough support group, not a mental problem. But then the same could be said of pedophilia, couldn't it? These are just some thoughts.

With health more generally, sometimes the environment is to blame, rather than the individual. We wouldn't want to say that a Jew was 'sick' in Nazi Germany, we'd rather say the social environment was sick. But again, this leans towards 'normative' judgements.

What are the thoughts of you folks here?

Im a 1st year med student and we talked about this extensively in the first semester.

Basically, it came down to 2 definitions. The first definition was complete objective health, with nothing wrong with you. As you can imagine, in many cases this is just impossible, more so when you think that many terminal diseases (aids, cancer, etc) have now become chronic, meaning that more and more of the general population is actually "sick". But although these diseases may not be curable, they are definitely curable, such as in the case of aids, where people can now live an almost normal life with a close to normal life expectancy. On top of this, the smallest cramp or pain would make you "unhealthy", which to me just sounds silly.

Now from this, it becomes evident that although one might be sick, their treatment and handling of their disease means that they may live a "normal" life. It can be argued that in this case, that although the person is sick, they are healthy, as it does not affect their life (to a great extent) and they can go on about their daily routine without being particularly "burdened" by their disease. This of course is a matter of opinion, but I think its fairly solid as an idea.

Of course, this approach looks at it from the individuals viewpoint and not societies and is mostly focused of physical rather than mental illness. I think that in mental illness, the stigma and ignorance that exists around it make it harder for a person with a mental illness to live their normal life, because many people simply dont understand it. To put it into an example, I think it would be easier for the average person to understand why it would be hard for someone in a wheelchair to go shopping due to the physical obstacles, but harder to understand why someone with a form of anxiety just cant handle the fear of talking to someone at the counter.

Relating to your comment about cultural relativism, I think that it influences the concept of health greatly. To demonstrate this ill give an example form personal experience. Ive got roots from the UK and Greece. Now, in the UK, your expected to go to university and be done with it as soon as possible, if you mess around a…

Can anyone here redpill me on seroquel?

I have depression and anxiety issues, including difficulty sleeping. I can be completely awake until 5 am and only asleep for about 2 hours a night. I've been prescribed other meds but for the time being, this one worked. I've been on it for a few years

However I have a real mean hangover every morning. I hate how I have to be put into a drug induced coma just to sleep and wake up feeling shitty and unable to function until the effects wear off.

Am I slowly lobotomizing myself? What is this shit? Is it gonna do things to me later in life like Alzheimers or brain cancer or something?

Mirtazapine if you have not tried it take at night and usually 10 minutes later sleeping. Waking up early and going to sleep early looking forward to the next days activities. Can cause weird vivid dreams that wear off, but after years of little to no sleep at times this is a good nightly anti-depressant and good for sleep.

Likely the best drug for anxiety, ptsd, sleep. Takes a little bit of time to work for some, me a day but a week for most.

Mirtazapine can be kinda weird like that. There were times where sleeping until 4pm from 11:00 pm. Stopped after a while but yes, it can be pretty sedating, or
even lack of sleep after a few hours and eating food for an hour, sleeping then eating again. Effects wore off like that and decent 8 hours of sleep on a decent schedule.

So since probably I hit my twenties I've had this on and off problem where I have a nagging dry unpreductive cough that usually ends with me swallowing a lot also i have to do this internal snorting thing to get rid of shit in the back of my nostrils. Its bothersome but not bad untill I started having feelings and sensations of stuff being caught in the back of my throat, swallowing would barely get rid of it for a moment and along with it has given me an anxiety problem that goes with it. When I feel this sensation in my throat it's very distressful and at worst can trigger a panic attack and it has many times in the past. It was diagnosed as just anxiety/drip or GERD but I've been on anti-acid medications and couldn't really tell if they helped me because it would always come back. I think the worst episode was when I was in Florida and had the worst panic attack in my life because I kept trying to gasp and swallow air to get rid of this sensation in my throat which ended with me having a huge panic attack and it felt like I had too much air in my body like I was gonna explode, and could barely grasp the reality of what was going on. I was released with ativan and potassium pills but it really felt like I was going to die. After being brought there I was magically cured for a while even though they didn't do shit for me.. Ativan relaxed me a lot but that's about it. I worked all last year with no problems untill recently I started having the lump in my throat again with the nagging cough, exept this time if I don't swallow really hard it almost triggers a gag reflex and its fucking TERRIBLE. I can barely do shit anymore, I'm scared to go out or do anything and I can't work because of this problem. I've lost jobs and have bad long time periods of not leaving the house. This problem has been plaguing me and it may seem small to some people but for me it's fucking hell. Not to mention my breathing gets fucked up sometimes also and not sure what causes it . I want to get scoped out but can't afford it and currently living with a friend who's helping me, I feel like shit because I can't work and feel like a freeloader when I don't want to be! I'm thin…

I have not .. I don't think this is septum deviation because this is an off and on problem.

Your opinion on the cause isn't worth much atm. You aren't a doctor. Not all symptoms manifest in the same way for every person who suffers them.

Don't put this off. Contact you department of health or other organization if you need help with information. Not asking but would the other person have known or should have known they of others may possibly be infected? Also would be good practice if you had sexual relations of subsequent sharing of needles with others in this time to have them informed. You local city state could inform others of this.

To others, there are many drug stores and ways to get clean syringes and bleach. In all though IV drug use is is like taking away part of who you are.

Well. Im not going to advocate drugs to fix your problem even though we are on a drug board. Your priority is to treat your illness foremost and then you can go back to using drugs recreationally.
Benzos and opiates for sleep are only temporary measures. You become tolerant to them and you withdraw when you stop and they come with side effects. Get your health in check first

Not sure about Brazil and prescribing but you would fit the bill for codeine in every rational sense. If the blood is just from dried up mucus stuffs you should be OK pretty quick.

If doctor chooses so she/he may prescribe promethazine with codiene, or Codeine and guaifenesin. The promethazine with codiene would be best as for nausea, cough suppressant, pain and rest. May prescribe guaifenesin for mucus issues on top of that.

With tussi organadan the guaifenesin would help break up mucus stuffs and the codeine would be good as a cough suppressant and pain. At least get some relief with it. Can take some diphendydramine for sleep, comfortable feeling finally. like 25/50mgs would be a good way
to feel better in this case.

Ask for something for rest and restlessness either way and doctor may decide for promethazine and codeine as a best offering, and offer guaifenesin on the side.

Note drinking water/eating as being difficult which surely it is.

Best would be promethazine with codiene as far as comfort by far. Codeine is a good cough suppressant and promethazine is a sedative and good for nausea.

Antibiotic for a week from the 'hopefully reasonable' lungologist and I would imagine you'll be back to your good ol self again. Just limit mentions of drinking and smoking. Maybe for what it's worth, great time to quit smoking cigarettes.

Hi, I recently came off of a short heroin binge. The withdrawal was no biggie, but I've been unable to sleep properly for 6 days without knocking myself out with benzos. Knocking myself out with benzos does not give me restful sleep and is almost as bad as not sleeping at all, strangely.

I have an issue where if I don't sleep, the sleep deprivation causes this huge amount of anxiety and adrenaline in me, making it very difficult to sleep the next night. This time, it has snowballed across almost a week and it is now impossible for me to sleep.

I do not wish to take any more benzos as I don't want the rebound anxiety/insomnia from them. I have tried propranolol at night to control the panic and tachycardia but it completely prevented me from sleeping.

Medical staff have been completely useless, all I've received are benzos and antidepresants. This state of sleep deprivation and delirium is getting worse every day and I really need to get back on track. 1-2 nights of good sleep is enough to break the vicious cycle and allow me to sleep normally again.

I practice good sleep hygeine; lights on and curtains open as soon as I wake, exercise within 5 hours of sleep time, computer off and lights dimmed within 2 hours of sleep time + a hot bath.

What should I do?

Have you tried quetiapine hemifumarate? It is the only sleep medicine that made me legit sleepy, well actually, it makes me sleepy as fuck. Ask your psychiatrist about quetiapine hemifumarate.

mirtazapine 7-5mgs can be great for the serious not sleeping. Take a half of
a diphenhydramine12 mgs with this will kick the effects to sleep up quite
a bit more if wanted. 25 mgs even moreso.

Just try to just go to sleep as usual and should sleep in 10 minutes or so. Not always but it should even out pretty quick.

Whatever the case dihenhydramine does increase the sleep effects. Don't take over 50mgs or suffer wnateing to drink eater and not sleep.

Sometimes lower doses 7mgs of mirtazapine with our without diphenhydramine
can work better than taking more.

I've suffered from chronic sleep deprivation since I was 12. It's gotten particularly bad this year, since I started fixing it by pulling two or three all nighters a week and now I'm able to sleep very little even when I have a correct pattern.

It's no surprise that the benzodiazapenes didn't help you. They're absolutely useless for sleep. I've taken many different z-drugs and benzos, and they all either cause rebound insomnia or tolerance rapidly makes them useless, and they also give a very poor quality of sleep and this is a recognized issue.

In my experience of recalcitrant insomnia, there are three things that work and provide restful sleep:

Opiates
Mirtazapine
Diphenhydramine
Triazolam (Halcion)

Triazolam is extremely short-acting and so it knocks me out and I can sleep on fine.
