    Last month a relative was prescribed a medicine for his Rheumatoid Arthritis condition of past 5-6 years. The drug was named Folitrax (Methotrexate). The family physician who recommended the same made a mistake in writing the dose, and the patient took one tablet daily instead of the lower doses of max. 2-3 tabs a week normally prescribed (depending on condition). The medication is known for it's toxicity in higher doses and also given to patients having cancer.

    The condition of this relative went from bad to worse within no time and had to be admitted into emergency. All the classic problems associated with Methotrexate Toxicity were present and the patient needed extreme care while hospitalisation till all his blood counts (post platelet transfusion) and severe skin reactions came back to normal. The patient was discharged after 5-6 days of hospitalisation only to be admitted again after 2 days due to other complications also arising as a result of this drug overdose. After a second round of about a week at the hospital the patient is doing well and on a steady path towards recovery.

    At the time of admission to Kokilaben Hosp. the young lady doctor who checked the prescription called her colleague doctor and commented, "Ok we are admitting him under the care of Dr. ***, for now....this is happening too often, you can sue the doctor once he is discharged." :eek:

    I was there along with these relative's close ones and said, "Doc. we are not even thinking of suing, we just want our patient to be OK, will he be OK?"

    I have dissuaded these relatives from acting out of anger and asked to handle this matter without any anger and just make sure that the Doctor (family physician) is informed and does not recommend wrong doses in the future to others. It certainly looks like an honest mistake and suing the Doctor will lead to mental agony to him and should not serve any good at large.

    Sharing this story since Rheumatoid Arthritis is not fairly too uncommon so to speak. Please verify medications online for any known side effects and stop immediately if adverse reactions occur.

    Nice topic. Pls bear with me on my views which will will be very different to what mainstream tells us .
    Try to eat 70% alkaline forming foods and 30% acid forming foods. Tummy is formed by the hardening of the intestinal wall i and its inability to fold or flex and tuck inside the cavity of the abdomen.( similar to a new garden hose and a used one with salts deposit inside) The stiffness of the intestinal wall is brought about by the acidic food that we overeat and the bod neutralizing the same by producing mucus whose accumulation increases the stiffness. t the same time improper nutrition results in the tummy skin losing its strength and allowing the gut to bang the walls of the tummy and push it out to result in a pot belly. Increase the intake of vitamin C from natural sources like Amla juice, lemon ...etc. it will help in alkalizing and also help the collagen to tighten the skin. Having a few peices of steamed lauki is said to neutralize the layers in the gut and help reduce belly. Just exercise alone will nbever work. You can find any no of people who do all the exercises in the gym and walk and run al over the place but the tummy remains.

    I am a great believer of alternative medicine (Siddha, Ayurvedha and Homeopathy) than Alopathy.

    Those who know Tamil don't miss this video. The speaker is late Dr. Deivanayagam who was a qualified surgeon turned to a Siddha specialist.

    Once formed tummy might remain :(, only liposuction might get you back your earlier 6 packs.
    These are advices to not increase your tummy further.
    Cut down on calories,avoid eating anything that is white like sugar and salt rich food.
    No carbohydrates that is rice at night, in fact all film stars see rice only once in a fortnight.
    Burn all the calories you had consumed all day before going to bed by walking or swimming.
    Avoid oil and ghee in all forms, no deep fried foods.
    No junk food like Pizza, chips, burger etc
    Avoid static work.
    Drink plenty of water and frequent food in little quantity.
    Avoid eating out, even for chennai Fiat meets you can gather at beach, chat and go back to your home food :)

    Tummy or central obesity is directly detrimental to health especially that of heart.

    Does Homeopathy really work?...has anyone ever seen it treating anyone for good. . Over that Dr. Batra. I heard he gives you a year's medicine at a time. Looks like a big Quack propaganda going on.

    Homeopathy from a qualified homeopath would work, same is the case of all alternative medicines and not from a trained person.
