Dear lybrate user...As per your details you are on prothiaden which is the class of antidepressant usually prescribed in depression when anxiety symptoms are significant, so I assume that along with the depressive illness you also have significant anxiety since the beginning of illness. Now again the anxiety features what you have stated as fear are increasing. Assuming that you have depression since a while which has been taken care of with prothiaden and fluoxetine, my suggestion would be to increase the dose of fluoxetine as its dose can be optimised till 60mg in depression. But still I would suggest you for a detailed interview before taking any step. Take care

I am taking fluoxetine from several months for OCD. Can I use liver tonic with fluoxetine? Can I use antibiotic like cephalexin, cefixime in infection cases with fluoxetine? And what are the drugs which should not be taken with fluoxetine?

It seems like you are on medications for ocd, depression and anxiety for the last 2 years. You also seem to mention that you have not improved. It may be worthwhile using different medications since you are already optimized on good doses of all the medications you mention. Also it is worth going through your history before giving any suggestions here. We welcome your questions and any concerns you may have regarding your treatment. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio, or video appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

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 you can google for more information my suggestion avoid because these are not scientific approved.

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.

I have been suffering of ocd for last 5 years. Now I consulted with a doctor. He asked me to take fluoxetine 20 mg, fludac.daily 1 capsule. I checked in google about this fludac. Noticed several side effects of fluoxetine. So I am worried about the side effects. Should I continue to take fluoxetine? And how long I can take fluoxetine?

Dear lybrate-user, 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.
