The plaque and its pathogenesis

This looked a good read but you have to purchase the full article.

Question about interactions with Rebif

I planned to ask my neuro today if any of the supplements I'm taking might interact with Rebif since I am going to be starting it soon. Unfortunately I only got the nurse and she couldn't get me off the phone quick enough. Right now I am taking Omega 3, Lecithin and a multivitamin plus Allegra for my sinus and allergy problems. Were you told of any supplements or other medications to avoid when taking ...

Better/Easier flagyl taste

Flagyl tastes better... No, really, it's true! I have found a way to take flagyl and not taste it and it will probably make you happier every time you do! I take the flagyl tablet out, coat it with jam or jelly and toss it in my mouth, quickly followed by a water chaser. You'll NEVER taste a thing, except maybe a fleeting taste of the jam. DO NOT LICK YOUR FINGERS before washing them ...

Difference Between statins

I was wondering if anyone has changed between the statins and noticed a difference in their effectiveness?

The ones I know of are:
atorvastatin (Lipitor)
fluvastatin (Lescol)
lovastatin (Mevacor)
pravastatin (Pravachol)
simvastatin (Zocor)
rosuvastatin (Crestor)

I just read an article at which basically states that lipitor is better than pravachol for anti-inflamitory effects.

He thinks that inflammation in the walls of the coronary arteries is behind many heart events and that Lipitor has ...

Patient Registry for Tysabri

An FDA briefing document was released today that recommends a mandatory patient registry for Tysabri users. In August 2005 the FDA mandated an electronic registry for all patients & physicians using Accutane, and it was just announced last week that it is up and running. Hopefully a Tysabri registry won't take as long to implement.
