Research suggest in usa-topical use of aloe gel is generally well tolerated. However, there have been occasional reports of burning, itching, and eczema with topical use of aloe gel. Oral use of aloe latex can cause abdominal pain and cramps. Oral consumption of aloe leaf extracts (for as little as 3 weeks and as long as 5 years) has been related to cases of acute hepatitis.
Animal studies have noted an association between aloe vera leaf extract taken orally and gastrointestinal cancer in rats and mice; however, concerns were expressed about the differences in the product used in that study and those commonly used by consumers. thus, more research is needed to assess the relevance to human health.
Overuse of aloe latex may increase the risk of adverse effects from the drug digoxin, used for some heart problems.
Aloe—both in gel and latex form—when taken by mouth may be unsafe during pregnancy and brest feeding

Dear Lybrate user
using too many antidepressants are not at all good for health. Seek professional counseling along with medicines for better results. Counseling leads to the root cause of the problem and will help you to come out of it in an effective way.
for 5 long years, you have been living with ocd. If you can continue to live with it, worry about side effects of fluoxetine. If you want your quality of your life to improve without ocd, please put to test whether you develop these googled side effects or not. Please continue to take fluoxetine as long as the doctor has prescribed. Please go back to her/him without stopping, to increase the dose - weighing the effect and side effect. How long to take, depends on your severity of ocd and other disorders along with ocd, your way of challenging the compulsions (rituals) etc.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples like sexual thoughts, counting, checking, orderliness, etc. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. All the best.
