What is a good, cheap insurance plan for vision and prescription drugs in Ontario?

I need an individual plan that covers vision and prescription drugs. Any suggestions? Should have good coverage for relatively cheap payments.

Cheap is a relative term. Cheap and good are mutually exclusive. You can try Blue Cross or Manulife and see what they can come up for you.

Prescription drugs are available to control high blood pressure and abnormal blood lipids, yet many people stop taking their medicines. What are some possible explanations for this situation? What are some possible solutions?

There are plenty of reasons a person might stop taking their medication. They might just not be able to remember to take it each day (I see this a lot in elderly patients), they may experience unpleasant side effects, or they may not be able to afford the medication.

As for solutions, I think healthcare professionals should be more willing to take the time and make sure their patients understand why they need to take their medications, and offer suggestions as to how they can remember to take them each day. Too many physicians and pharmacists are so pushed for time that they just hand the patient their prescription and just say "here, take this". If the patient cannot afford the medication or has side effects, the physician should work with the patient to try alternatives until they find a solution that works and is affordable.

Should children with mental disease have to take prescription drugs or should there be other alternatives?

While I am writing paper on this subject and I was just wondering what others have to say about it. So what do you think? Should doctors just give children with mental diseases prescription drugs that they need to take for life and sometimes can cause deaths or should there be alternatives?

Well theres a reason there isnt a black n white yes or no answer… some mental diseases need drugs to stay alive/ function at all.. some need to remain calm physicaly.. definitely meds are administered when they shouldnt be but it DEFINITELY depends on what is wrong with the person.. maybe instead of saying there should always be a better alternative try to figure out which diseases NEED medicine and which do not.

Are there any prescription drugs that interact with caffeine pills such as pro plus?

I take various prescription drugs including tramadol and diclofenac and was wondering whether there is any interaction with pro plus/a certain amount you should/shouldn’t take with caffeine?
Taking drugs for pain, 22yo female. I take diclofenac, paracetamol and tramadol and 25mg amitriptyline at night with occasional codeine phosphate in day too if pain is bad. Wondering about interaction as would use pro plus when studying as I’m doing my finals at Uni and need to stay awake and be productive!
And sorry, by caffeine I meant pro plus at the end.

If you want to know what drug-drug interactions are relevant to your life, look up particular drugs that you use in a drug manual and you will find the answer.

You should also learn some physiology so that you can figure some of the more obvious answers for yourself. A drug-drug interaction is sometimes due to differences in the effects different drugs have on physiology.

In the United Kingdom, you have access to health care and you can ask your doctor or a nurse specifically questions such as the one above. They can direct you to printed or online resources.

Your topic seems a bit biased.
I hope you do not include the bit about sometimes cause deaths in your title. Sure you can mention it (with cooberating evidence) in the body of your work.

Seems like a very broad topic.
To answer this question you need to first note all the ‘mental diseases’ of childhood, their symptoms, side effects and treatments (both drug and non drug).
For many ‘mental diseases’ there are non drug tratments availible.
For many there are alternatives within conventional medicine
And for some diseases the mainstay of treatment is not drugs, but psycological therapy or something else.
For some diseases (for example depression) there is actually a reasnobly high death rate in the untreated population and thus the idea of trying an untested alternative treatment is actually quite dangerous and could cause deaths itself.

Personally I think this topic is way too broad. i would focus on one specific mental disease of childhood (for example ADHD) then talk about the contdition itself, its symptoms and its effect on a childs life then drug and non drug treatments currently availible and the effectiveness of these treatments. if you have any actual evidence of deaths from medication this would be where you put it, you would also need to look at the death rate of untreated adhd kids, I suspect this would be heigher than the general population as they are impulsive and thus more likely to get into accidents. Then I would mention some of the other treatments that are currently not mainstay in the treatment of ADHD but may show potential in the future.

what is the best multi vitamin to take for people with sensitivites to prescription drugs some vitamins?

hello, i have severe side effects to prescription drugs, i tend to have problems with vitamins too it seems, i noticed that high doses of B such as Super B vitamins give me trouble with anxiety and panic. Fish oil also causes similar effects. Its almost like they work against my nervous system. I have found out that oil can do this to some people such as myself. It is quite common for B to have adverse effects most common is heart palputations… So i am looking for advice from people who suffer anxiety / panic dissorder and understand the situation.
thanks ash! what else besides flintstones is similar?

I have anxiety and have never felt weird on a vitamin except for prenatal gummies. They give me migraines. I would suggest taking Flinestone vitamins, they are kids but if you take 2 a day that will be plenty. That is what I use for prenatal also icon smile what is the best multi vitamin to take for people with sensitivites to prescription drugs some vitamins?

Should prescription drugs be advertised to the general public? Why or why not? What are the risks and concerns?

Should prescription drugs be advertised to the general public? Why or why not? What are the risks and concerns? What are the benefits?

I don’t think prescription drugs should be advertised. The ads make people think that they will be much better if only the doctor would prescribe this drug or another. It makes people think that there is a drug that will fix every problem, that will cure every ache and pain. It also makes people think that because a drug is new and expensive that it must be better than anything else. Advertising prescription drugs mainly makes a lot of money for the drug companies. The doctor is the best person to determine what medication a person needs.

Can scammers get in trouble for not sending an order of prescription drugs to a buyer who has no prescription?

If "seller" has a site that "offers" prescription drugs without a prescription, would the buyer be able to press charges if the "seller" accepted the money and sent nothing in return? Its illegal to buy prescription drugs without a prescription so wouldn’t it be the buyers fault?

I’d tell the police you failed to present the documentation for the script and i refused to send….

Is there an oral prescription drug for the treatment of dandruff or seborrhic dermatitis?

I have tried the shampoo’s and many of the treatments, and I still get dandruff. Does anyone know of any oral prescription drugs that help to prevent the problem of dandruff? Thanks.

The best way is to talk to a dermatologist, specialized in these problems.
