    Question:   My doctor recently found some endometriosis on my cervix. She plans on treating it with silver nitrate. I have never heard of this condition being treated with silver nitrate. I thought that medicine and/or surgery was what was used to treat the problem. I wish to have more children, so having this treated properly is very important to me. Should I be concerned and insist upon different treatment?    Dr. McLaughlin's Answer

    Question:   I have had migraine pain for over a year. I have been using Excedrin Migraine and it has been helpful, but the last three weeks it hasn't work. There was a migraine medicine on the news not too long ago that was helpful with the head pain and also assisted in weight loss. Could you give me the name of this medicine so I could discuss it with my doctor?    Dr. McLaughlin's Answer
