Eucalyptus oil poisoning
Date: 4/17/2016
Dr. Pls my 3yrs old son drank eucalyptus oil, can it in any way affect him, though he has been taken to hospital and is still medication, thanks
AUSTIN

AskDocWeb: If swallowed, eucalyptus oil can cause seizures as well as a number of other serious symptoms. Survival past 48 hours is usually a good sign that they will recover. If any damage to the kidneys has occurred, it may take several months to heal. Drowsiness may persist for several days.

In case of poisoning seek immediate medical help. Do NOT make the person throw up unless told to do so by poison control or a health care professional.

Marshmallow root?
Date: 7/27/2016
I have been taking marshmallow root for bladder issues, and was just wondering if for any reason it would show up on a drug test? I have read so much about it and everyone says it's safe, I just want to make sure because I can't afford to loose my job. Thanks
Melinda

AskDocWeb: Marshmallow root is not something that shows up on a drug test for drugs of abuse. However, the list of things that do is extensive.


Echinacea
Date: 7/31/2016
Echinacea does it work to flush your system for a five panal (urine) test?

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)?
Date: 9/13/2016
Can I use chia seeds if I'm already taking HRT?
Allison

AskDocWeb: With chia seeds high Omega-3 content, it may enhance and balance hormone replacement therapy (HRT). It may also help reduce hot flashes and other symptoms of menopause and help maintain a positive mental outlook. Preliminary research at the University of California, Los Angeles suggests that Omega-3's may also help maintain healthy breast tissue.


Gas pain
Date: 9/18/2016
Hello, Yesterday I began using Devil's Claw and during the night I woke up to severe gas pain from my belly and creeping up to my stomach. I was wondering if you think that it might be from Devil's Claw?
Amanda

AskDocWeb: Although Devil's Claw is known to reduce flatulence (gas) for some people it is counterindicated for those with gastric and duodenal ulcers or gallstones.


How long does saw palmetto stay in the body?
Date: 11/8/2016
I took one dose of saw palmetto 300mg 2 days ago and I've had nasty side effects mixed with an MAO. Considering i took only one dose how long will it take before I can't start taking my MAO again?
Jason

AskDocWeb: No reports in published literature were found that clearly identified the half-life of saw palmetto. However, since most sources say to stop using saw palmetto at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery, that should give you some indication as to how long it persists in the body.
