    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I will try posting again and hope to not lose this one.

    A medical professional no longer replies to these posts. We are mostly lay-people and would probably not be able to give you an accurate answers. Here are your options:

    1. Contact your pharmacist regarding this new medication.

    2. Go to your pharacy's website to check for an interaction.

    3. Go to the WebMD Drugs & Supplement section (tab at top of page) to check for an interaction.

    4. Search the internet using Yahoo or Google for information regarding this medication.

    I hope you can find the answers you need soon.
