    I think if you just pushed as hard as you could some poops would fall out. If not try drinking 2 litre of milk followed by 500g prune bits. This will sofly relax your poops so they can fall out easily and unselfconsciously.

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I have taken Zyrtec and citalopram for more than a year with no side-effects. After 1 cycle of prednisone, I had moderate insomnia and minor confusion and short-term memory loss. After the second cycle of prednison, and the addition of tramadol, fluocinonide, antivert, and ondansetron, the short term memory loss, insomnia, and confusion were markedly worse (severe).
