Have medical license, will blog.

How would you feel if you found your doctor's personal blog? [more inside]

What's up with the legs?

I saw a guy today who had something going on with his legs that I was curious about. He was wearing shorts and had these sort of flesh-colored "sleeves" over both legs and what looked like some sort of therapeutic boot with a very thick sole or padding. He walked as though he had a prosthetic leg, but these were not like any prosthetics I have ever seen. He didn't have a cane, crutches or any other sort of assistance. Any ideas what this was all about?

What restrictions are there on mailing over-the-counter medicine from the United States to Japan?

I have relatives in Japan who want me to mail them some over-the-counter medicines--specifically, extra-strength Tylenol and Sudafed (the new kind, without pseudoephedrine.) Both are legal in Japan and would be for their personal use only. So how do I find out how much of each I can mail them at once?

What tests are early "screens" for cancer?

If we always hear, "They could've beaten his cancer if they'd only found it sooner," then why aren't we all getting screened for cancer long before the doctor orders the tests?

I assume that money is the issue (isn't it always?), but if I'm willing to spend the cash, what do I need to do for me and for my family members?

Too much Lunesta?

Is anybody aware of potential risks in increasing my dose of Lunesta beyond 3 mg? I have found that 3 mg of Lunesta doesn't always (in fact, only half the time) help me to sleep. Since my pills come in 3 mg form, I'm thinking of splitting them and taking 4.5 mg. I'm not on any other medications and won't be drinking when I take these.

Which allergy meds have gone generic or OTC since last year?

Seasonal allergy relief: I've read a bunch of the previous questions, but was wondering about allergy medicines that have gone prescription to over-the-counter or brand-name to generic since last spring. I know there's a generic Zyrtec now, but was wondering if there are any others that might be more affordable/available than they were last spring.
