re: Amlodipine. Frick I am old. Any input from prescribers or folks taking it? - Elephino
Black people generally respond better to calcium channel blockers, especially diltiazem. There is a reason your doc chose it first. Perhaps you responded too well and needed something less effective....

re: Amlodipine. Frick I am old. Any input from prescribers or folks taking it? - Elephino
I would consider it a bit curious for your doc to go straight to amlodipine if HBP were the only consideration. Not wrong, just curious. ACE inhibitors (lisinopril) and ARBS (losartan) are usually 1st line with perhaps the addition of a diuretic. Calcium channel blockers have more of a direct eff...

re: 22y/o college student blows her $90,000 college fund and blames her parents - Elephino
[quote]she had managed to blow through a $90,000 college fund left to her by her grandparents. Kim has one year left of school and no way to cover her remaining $20,000 tuition balance. [/quote] So if her tuition is 20K per year, that's 80K in just tuition. Was she supposed to make it on $2500/y...

re: Dr. Carson - Elephino
I realize that your comment was intented to mock, but his problem is one of religion. It's unfortunate becausehe is remarkably intelligent and sincere. He is a devout SDA,though. If you know anything of the religion and their beliefs, you should also realize that he would never be able to separate t...

re: Labor Participation Rate Declines to 62.6% - Elephino
Pretty simple explanation of how it's calculated and who is included. [link=(http://useconomy.about.com/od/glossary/fl/Labor-Force-Participation-Rate-Formula.htm)]LINK[/link] It does say all those older than 16, but does not imply a cut-off (65 I assume). It mentions exclusion of inmates, nursi...

re: Memphis mayor wants to dig up Confederate Gen Nathan Bedford Forrest and wife - Elephino
I graduated from the Health Science Center across the street from the park. If I recall correctly (if the story is true), his family anticipated this. We were told if the bodies are moved, the land reverts back to the ownership of his family. We were even told that the city tried to give the park...

re: UCLA Professor Finds Marijuana Is Safer to Smoke Than Tobacco - Elephino
His 15 minutes are going on decades. He's been doing marijuana research for a long time. It's interesting too because this contradicts some of his earlier findings. Though this is not an apples to apples comparison. I would imagine significant differences between a 2 pack/day individual and 2 joints...

re: What "congestant" do you recommend? - Elephino
Actually, there are drugs that have this side-effect. They're called alpha-blockers like doxazosin. Unfortunately, they are used to reduce blood pressure or help with BPH. There is a prescription antihistamine spray called azelastine (astelin) that works great but tastes like a handful of crushed as...

re: Chris Cotton called up to AA - Elephino
I lived in CC for five years back when Hunter Pence was there. The wind is insane and the park is on the water. Some of the nicest facilities in the minors. An old poll of players ranked it as the worst for outfielders because of the swirling wind....

re: South Padre Island - Going this Weekend for a Wedding - Elephino
This time of year won't be crazy. It becomes more of a fishing town in the summer after spring break. Blackbeard's is great if you bring in your own catch. Sea Ranch is good for higher end dining. The burgers at Padre Island Brewing don't suck. Isla Grand (used to be Radisson) had a very popular...

re: Human Papillomavirus (HPV) - our most common VD - Elephino
Excellent topic of discussion for the PT, especially since both currently available vaccines are racist (tongue-in-cheek). Scruffy mentioned the existence of different strains. Strains 16 and 18 are highly problematic; roughly 70% of cervical cancer cases. The vaccines cover those strains. A stu...

Fool proof for pans, curbs, niches, seats, and waterproofing. It is an expensive system and amateur tile work will likely leave something to be desired. https://www.showerbase.com/index.php...

re: OT Cigar Smokers - How long do cigars stay fresh? - Elephino
How many boxes? You can use a large Rubbermaid or Tupperware container for all boxes together, or a gallon size zip lock for individual boxes. You will need a moisture source (damp not soaked paper towel). You can also buy crystal gel humidor refills from a local tobacco store as a moisture source p...
