Patient discussion about stabilize

Q. Mood stabilizer Hi there, I just got know Trileptal, as a mood stabilizer. Now what I want to know is that how does a drug for epilepsy WORK to stabilize moods for someone who is bipolar?

A. Lithium - treatment alone is sometimes not enough to control the mood swings seen in people with bipolar disorder. A number of different classes of drugs including the anticonvulsants are used in addition to or sometimes instead of lithium. Trileptal has been evaluated in several studies involving a small number of patients. About 60% of patients treated with lithium alone, saw mild to moderate improvement in their symptoms when Trileptal was added. Side-effects were a big enough problem that about 25% of the people had to stop taking the Trileptal. Drowsiness was the biggest problem. Dizziness, headache, blurred vision, rash, weight gain and tingling were also reported by the patients.

Q. What age does eye sight stabilizes? I was just wondering at what age does your eye sight usually level off and stop getting worse? Any ideas much appreciated!

A. It will stabilize in a few years-age of 26-27.That is the average age people perform lasik surgery.
It is also the age the eye is fully grown.
Don't worry it will not get much worse maybe about -0,75.
Take care

Q. Can acupuncture be used to stabilize the liver and kidney. I am writing here to get some advice or suggestion. Months back my brother was diagnosed with Liver Cirrhosis. Doctor says that he has water/liquid in his abdomen. Recently we took a blood test, the result states that his kidney is not functioning well. I like to help him. Can acupuncture be used to stabilize his liver and kidney? I could really do with something, even if it's just a hello…

A. The symptom of having water in abdomen is ascites. Chinese herbs are more helpful for Ascites and liver cirrhosis. Acupuncture can also be very helpful. You should seek out a qualified TCM doctor and take your brother to him. Don’t worry; herbs will help him to cure.

Quick stabilization was also instrumental in maintaining support for the Real Plan and for Cardoso's economic policies in general.
Prior to 1991 various stabilization plans were adopted--Austral Plan in 1985, Primavera Plan in 1988, Bunge and Born (BB) Plans in 1989, and the BONEX Plan in 1990 to name some--but they all ended with failure.
Having a presidential system with a two-party system and adequate party discipline, an executive with strong legislative support seemed to be sufficient to initiate and implement stabilization in Argentina.
President Menem frequently used decrees of "necessity and urgency" during his term, particularly regarding his economic stabilization and liberalization program (Rubio and Goretti 1998; Bambaci, Saront, and Tommasi 2002).
During the thermal stabilization stage, the skin part of the fiber experiences an early oxidition reaction which consequently causes the inhibition of the diffusion of the oxygen into the core region for further oxidation.
The density of the original-untreated and thermally stabilized polyacrylonitrile fibers as a function of stabilization time ranging from 5 to 75 min are presented in Table 1 and Fig.
Stabilization Linear Linear density Density Density time (min) density loss (%) (g increase (Tex) [cm.sup.-3]) (%) 0 15.88 0 1.1800 0 5 15.34 -3.4 1.2949 9.74 15 15.15 -4.59 1.3059 10.67 30 15.06 -5.16 1.3193 11.80 45 14.82 -6.68 1.3346 13.10 60 13.20 -16.88 1.3470 14.15 75 13.10 -17.50 1.3603 15.28 Density values increase steadily and continuously between 5 and 75 min of stabilization time, showing an increase of density from 1.18 g [cm.sup.-3] for the original PAN fiber to 1.3603 g [cm.sup.-3] for the sample stabilized for 75 min.
The results show the continuous increase of density with stabilization time.
It is interesting to note that the thermal stabilization may result in an increase in the molecular weight of up to about 11% and a reduction of molecular volume up to about 17% (57).
(58) stabilization under different conditions yielded densities in the range from 1.455 to 1.535 g [cm.sup.-3] depending on the precursor draw ratio and the temperature profile employed during the stabilization stage.
