Users Guide to Gout

Dr. Sharon Orrange - May 10, 2016

Not all big toe pain is gout—but you may have been hearing more about it recently. The prevalence of gout has increased greatly over the past 30 years.

So what is gout, why do we get it, and how can you get rid of it?

Why more gout? There is more gout for three main reasons: we live longer, more people have high blood pressure and diabetes, and common medications like aspirin and diuretics increase the risk of gout. See More

Is Ibuprofen Bad for My Heart? What You Need to Know About NSAIDs

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 16, 2015

Update July 2015: The FDA is strengthening the existing black box warning on all prescription and over-the-counter NSAIDs.

5 Common Medications That Can Kill

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 13, 2015

You probably already know that many prescriptions have side effects. Most are mild—annoying issues like nausea or sleepiness that are inconvenient at worst. Others, however, can be deadly.

A very small number of medications are responsible for the majority of adverse side effects and hospitalizations from harmful drug reactions. How bad are these drugs? Between 2007 to 2009, almost 100,000 patients older than 65 had emergency hospitalizations for dangerous drug reactions, and almost 20,000 people die from prescription drug overdoses annually. See More

Hangover Remedies That REALLY Work

Dr. Sharon Orrange - December 02, 2013

With the holidays comes more drinking. You will be buried in folk remedies for hangover but you want to know what has actually been studied, what actually works when compared to folks doing nothing (or taking a placebo).

First, know what does NOT cause a hangover. A hangover is not an electrolyte imbalance, not lactate, not ketones and, this will surprise you, markers of dehydration (e.g., vasopressin) are not significantly related to hangover severity. See More

Is Ibuprofen/Advil Bad for My Liver and Kidneys?

Dr. Sharon Orrange - July 30, 2013

You should wonder if a medication you often take for pain is safe. There are some misconceptions about NSAIDS (ibuprofen, naproxen, Motrin, Advil) and some truths. How much can or should you take and is it bad for your liver or kidneys? Every week I’m asked this question.

How much?

For the treatment of mild to moderate pain, minor fever, and acute or chronic inflammatory conditions 200 mg to 400 mg of ibuprofen will work, and is comparable to 650 mg of acetaminophen (Tylenol) or aspirinSee More

The Big 8 Constipation-Causing Medications

Dr. Sharon Orrange - April 18, 2013

You are all stopped up and can’t find an obvious reason. Look over your medication list and you may find the source. Constipation has many causes but medications are among the most common.

First, if your stools are too hard or too small or pooping is too difficult or infrequent you are constipated. Officially, constipation is defined as a stool frequency of less than three per week. It can be miserable and medications prescribed by us, your physicians, are frequently to blame. See More

Dr. Sharon Orrange - August 16, 2012

First, what are the common things you will need OTC meds for?

– Fever

– Cough and cold

– Allergies

– Skin rashes or hives

– Heartburn
