re: Baseball Game 3: MSU 7 vs LSU 11 | LSU SWEEPS!!! LSU SEC CO- CHAMPS!!! - Elephino
Radar doesn't seem to improve until 7:00-7:30. I'd hate to see a starting pitcher get warm, throw an inning or two, and then have an hour or two rain delay. They need to delay the start until they have the best possible window....

re: Are Kia automobiles trashy? How about Hyundai? - Elephino
I drive a Soul as my daily commuter and my wife has a new Sedona. The Hyundai and Kia warranties are great. My Soul is almost 5 years old with a daily 80+ mile commute. I finally changed the factory battery last month, not because it was dead, but because I figured time had to be running short. I...

re: St. John's Wort - Anxiety, mood enhancer - Elephino
The IPA won't interact with it. Alcohol can increase the production of CYP2E1, which is why alcohol and tylenol don't pair well. There are studies that show efficacy in mood enhancement with St. John's Wort. It might be something worth trying if you weren't taking any other medications....

[quote]Should any specific medications or alcohol be avoided while taking it?[/quote] Yes, it can interact with several medications from the point of causing them to be metabolized more quickly. It contains a chemical called hyperforin, which is an activator of the pregnane x receptor that is th...

re: OT old guys and MDs do you take a testosterone pill? NO, not "andro-GEL". - Elephino
[quote] they are used for breast cancer, damn near exclusively[/quote] All of the drugs in the class were originally derived from the stilbene scaffold of diethylstilbestrol (clomid, tamoxifen, raloxifene). I bet that a good number of your patients receiving evista aren't taking it as part of a ...

re: OT old guys and MDs do you take a testosterone pill? NO, not "andro-GEL". - Elephino
Aromatase inhibitors will prevent the conversion of androgen to estrogen, but it isn't an effective long-term solution. Estrogen is required in men for things like maintaining bone mineral density. SARMs are being investigated for things like maintaining/increasing muscle mass, but they are still ...

re: OT old guys and MDs do you take a testosterone pill? NO, not "andro-GEL". - Elephino
Oxandrolone is by far one of the safest oral androgens (with regards to liver toxicity and the inability to be aromaticized to an estrogen), but it isn't commonly used to treat low T levels. It is more commonly used to treat muscle wasting diseases. To my recollection, there isn't an oral testoste...

re: Help with relocating to the MS Gulf Coast - Elephino
Like I said, community. We live in a burb of Greenville, SC with everything you could imagine as far as recreation and amenities (by far the best city in which we've lived). My son is young, but plays football and baseball. We do travel football and he's been on all-stars in baseball. My daughte...

re: Help with relocating to the MS Gulf Coast - Elephino
Really hard to replace what we have. We live in a great community where everyone knows everyone, neighborhood pool, playground, and soccer field. We all hang out together socially. As long as the school is on their game and offers a wide variety of AP, elective, athletics, and extra-curricular (to...

re: Help with relocating to the MS Gulf Coast - Elephino
Thanks for all the replies. Sorry I bailed on the thread, but had an evening work obligation, and it's been a long Saturday (Frickin' Tigers). It appears the consensus is between Pass Christian and Ocean Springs. I'll just say I'm currently leaning towards one of those while I think my wife is a ...

re: Help with relocating to the MS Gulf Coast - Elephino
Thanks, I hadn't seen that article. I've been using the 2016 US News rankings, which are pretty different. We're currently in a large (5A) school district with lots of course and extracurricular opportunity. I'd like to find a similar place as long as size didn't kill academic performance. ...
