The other fringe benefits of medicine.

We heard so much about medicines and how they cure us. and doctors prescribed them for one condition has the potential to treat another.I've been out of the WWW for few days and I'm left behind. The holidays kept me "oh-so- busy mommy" but now I'm back, Happy new year to everyone!

As i was saying a lot of us might find something useful in our medicine cabinet , but remember that you shouldn't just take a medicine on your own for a problem it wasn't prescribed to treat. You have to remember these are just a list of the common medicines that gives you a little extra. Always see your doctor if this wasn't such a good option.

1. Tenormin (atenelol) -It is known for treating high BP and chest pain but it can also help kill the pain of migraine.

2. Diamox- known for reducing the severity of glaucoma, a serious eye disease, but it can also prevent or ease altitude sickness, which causes headaches, nausea, shortness of breath, dizziness,and drowsiness.

3. Benadryl - It is known for cutting down on seasonal allergy symptoms like sneezing and runny nose, but it can also knock you out when you can't sleep.-say on that long flights.

4. Beta-blockers( Inderal/ propranolol) It is known for lowering high blood pressure but it can also help you feel less anxious before a big first meeting or a first date.

Now, these are just some of the meds out there, but again these opinions are not always suitable to everyone it's still best that these should be asked to your doctor.
