A new study out of the UK has suggested that prolonged use of tylenol and other painkillers during pregnancy may increase your future son's risk of infertility and testicular cancer. In fact, taking any painkiller during the second trimester doubles your baby boy's risk of reproductive problems in the future.

Next Time Someone's Riding Your Bumper Get Out of Their Way!

I’m downsizing. I weaned off of my prescription for anxiety now that I don’t need it anymore. It was making my ADHD worse because it suppresses dopamine.

Starting School Smarts

You've got a child with a mental health diagnosis who's ready to start the new school year.



What do you say and to whom do you say it?

* If your child had no problems in school last year and doesn't take meds at school you may not need to talk to her new teacher. Don't, however, assume that everything will always continue to go smoothly. Make a point of checking in with her teacher… Continue
