Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- Does naproxen sodium help phimosis?
I have phimosis and don't know what caused it. I'm diabetic and I was told this is more likely to happen to diabetics but I have been diabetic for 20 years and have never had this before.
- Laryngitis from depression?
I had a heart attack 3yrs ago, finding it hard to handle. Waiting for a complete knee replacement, also long history of back problems. Chronic pain. Diabetic on insulin.

I am taking Prozac for maor depessive disorder. I want to take chantix to helpme quit smoking. do I take chantix in addition to prozac or replacing prozac?
- Does xolair cause high blood sugar?
After my first dose my blood sugar went up but my hives and breathing improved. After several months blood sugar problems got worse. Now trying to get numbers down with insulin but still not normal. What, if any amount of units of insulin does anyone use to alleviate these problems?
- Did your physician discuss the risks before you were given oxaliplatin?
Oxaliplatin was given to me as part of chemotherapy then immediately taken off as I had a reaction. Shortly after the chemo sessions ended I experienced a sudden hearing loss where simple sounds like traffic sounded like a rushing river, likewise motors or fans running. After more than five years the rushing sounds have lessened except when I see live sports on TV when the fans make noise. The hearing loss has continued or got worse. Can any one suggest a drug or remedy to mitigate this. By the way, my oncologist did not discuss with me the risks before I was given this drug.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
GI symptoms began as constipation when first starting Chantix, then flatulence became progressively more prononuced and diarrhea began approximately 3 weeks after starting Chantix which progressed to totally liquid, frequent stools with abdominal cramping. Medical testing for pathogens associated with diarrhea was negative one week ago. I stopped Chantix appromixately 2 weeks ago, and symptoms are less urgent and distressing, but flatulance continues and stools remain liquid.
From this study (2 months ago):
I have OCD but after I started Zonegram 50mg bd 3 days ago, I have noticed my anxiety getting increasingly worse and I had a severe panic attack yesterday. The Zonegram has also decreased the severe paranoia I feel with the ketamine but it has introduced some memory loss. Otherwise I feel the best I have in years. Should I swap my antidepressant to help with the anxiety?
I recently came off Gabapentin (1800 tds --> 1200bd --> tapering down to nothing) and noticed my baseline pain level rising, hence the starting of the Zonegran.
How can I be sure the the positive side effects of the Zonegran are not going to disappear once I leave hospital and stop the ketamine and morphine? Basically is what I'm feeling just a reaction of the Zonegran and ketamine or will the Zonegran continue to work in my favour (minus the anxiety and memory loss) once I leave hospital?
I am in hospital now, I have entered hospital for Multiple Sclerosis neuropathic pain and am on these drugs to treat neuropathic pain but suspect I may also have Crohn's Disease/ulcerative colitis/irritable bowel syndrome hence the Neuropathic Pain and Abdominal Pain.
From this study (2 months ago):
Adult ADHD with anxiety. Recently been developing paranoia symptoms
