On this app pregnant Members can get up-to-date information about their growing baby like ultrasound videos, get handy tools like a weight gain calculator, complete a survey that screens for postpartum depression, set appointment reminders, and much more!    Parents of a baby under 2 years old can get parenting tips and advice, age-adapted information about their baby’s growth, feeding patterns, and tools to track diaper changes, growth, and vaccines.  You can download this app for free through iTunes or Google Play Loving Support Loving Support is committed to helping mothers achieve their breastfeeding goals. The Helpline offers advice, referrals to mom support groups and support and encouragement to get breastfeeding off to a good start.

The staff speaks English and Spanish. Breaking Maternal Mental Health Stigma - One Mom at a Time   Immediately after childbirth, most women experience “baby blues,” which can include mood swings, crying spells, anxiety and difficulty sleeping – all very normal, but short-lived symptoms. However, postpartum depression is more severe and long-lasting, usually requiring treatment from a mental health professional. For millions of new moms, like Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) Member Gerti, motherhood – and all the challenges it brings – can be overwhelming. After the birth of her daughter, Gerti struggled with her mental health and recognized she needed help.  Thankfully, she knew exactly where to turn.    Additional Resources The ABC's of Safe Sleep (Video) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Pregnancy Depression During and After Pregnancy

How to Get Care - Medicine Safety

Answers What can happen if I take a few medicines at the same time? When you take two or more medicines, they will likely mix well. On certain occasions, you might have what’s called a “drug-to-drug interaction.” This means that some medicines you take together may cause an adverse reaction in your body. For example, a “drug-to-drug” interaction could: make your medicines not work as well (weaken them) make one or more of the medicines too strong and cause unwanted side effects, which could be deadly TIP: Talk to your Pharmacist about all medicines you take and ask if they mix well together. What are some reasons that I might have a harmful effect from taking one or more medicines at the same time? These reasons might include: dose may be too high interaction with other drugs Note: Everyone can react differently – based on age, weight, gender, etc. TIP: To avoid problems when taking two or more medicines together, tell your health care Provider and Pharmacist about all the medicines (and other remedies) you are taking.    How do I know if I’m taking the right medicine – at the right dose, at the right time to control my symptoms? Any medicine taken the wrong way might put your health at risk.  A drug maker has to show research data to the FDA to get each medicine approved. This research could be about: how the medicine works why it is safe to take (or not) what dose works best with the fewest side effects Could a medicine taken at a high dose be harmful? Yes. That is why your Pharmacist checks your medicines to make sure you are on the right dose. Don’t forget to ask your Doctor or Pharmacist any questions about your medicine.  Taking higher than recommended doses of certain over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription medicines – including abuse or misuse of the medicines – can cause serious health problems. It could even lead to death. Also, a dose that is safe for you may not be safe for someone else.     Who most often needs to have their medicine dose changed and why? Certain people need to have their dose changed, so that they don’t take too much (called “overdosing”). These include the elderly, children, and women who are pregnant or mothers who are breastfeeding, and people with chronic health conditions.  Always ask your Pharmacist if the medicines are safe for you to take at the prescribed doses. Don’t share your medicines with friends or family.    What are “duplicate drug therapies”? Why do I need to know about this? You might have different Doctors who have prescribed medicines that work in the same way for you. When medicines have similar active ingredients, they could be:  the same medicine with different names (for example, one could have a brand name and the other might have a generic name), or  two medicines of similar nature TIP: Be cautious about taking the same medicine twice – as you could have two bottles of the same medicine! TIP: It’s important for you to keep a full list of each medicine, vitamin and herbal remedy you are taking. Please show this list to your Pharmacist or your Doctor. The list helps your health care Provider check for any unwanted effects between drugs and check that the two or more medicines work well for you or not. What happens if my medicine is recalled? A recall may be issued if a medication is: A health hazard: If there is some health risk associated with the medication.  Mislabeled or packaged poorly: If there is a problem with the dosing tool provided with the drug.  Poorly manufactured: If there are defects related to poor quality, impurities, and incorrectly potency of the drug from the manufacturer.  Please click here to view an up-to-date list of drug recall notifications. Why are some medicines “high risk” for the elderly?  Some medicines can be too strong for a certain group of people and are considered “high risk” for them. This special group may include older people, pregnant women or mothers who are breastfeeding, children, and people with other medical conditions affecting their kidney or liver. For example, certain medicines prescribed for memory issues may have a side-effect that causes dizziness in some seniors who are at “high risk” for falling. In that case, an alternative medicine (or no medicine) for this condition would be better.   Where can I find details about medicines that might be harmful for older people? If you are over 65 years old, ask your Doctor or Pharmacist if the medicines you are taking may not be right for you.  Please see the short list below of the most common medicines prescribed that may be harmful for older people.  Older adults (age 65+): Check with your Doctor first before taking these medicines: Medicine or Medicine Class   Potential Risks Sliding scale insulin May make your blood sugar level too low – without improving the condition Glyburide  May cause a long period of excessively low blood sugar Muscle relaxants  May be poorly tolerated Barbiturates May increase risk of dependence and overdose Benzodiazepines (alprazolam, temazepam, lorazepam) May increase risk of falls and fractures To learn more, visit: Pharmacy Benefits: Medi-Cal Members IEHP Dual Choice Cal MediConnect Members
