Avatar m tn I have been on the medications finasteride (Propecia) for hair loss for a year, and tadalifil (Cialis) for better erections for several years. From my limited reading, these drugs do not have odd effects with alcohol. These are "lifestyle"drugs. I am generally healthy. Questions:- 1) Apparent LESS TOLERANCE to alcohol In my younger day I could drink up to 6 pints, and still have sensible conversations and remember everything I had done, with full control.
Avatar m tn Alcohol intesifies the effect of your medication. It even says on your medicine bottle not to mix with alcohol. Last year I had a friend who went out with friends and drank (don't know how much) she went home, went to sleep and never woke up again. You should never feel the need to have an excuse for not drinking, and should be able to have fun without the effects of alcohol.

Avatar m tn yes 4 Depression. 5 Alcohol abuse. 6 Meds, some can give you ED. 7 Stress, but you say your now OK. 8 Anger. 9 Anxiety. 10 Self image. 11 Low libido. 12 Your health. 13 Low testosterone. Some thing is wrong somewhere, you have done all the right things for getting erections back, losing weight, getting healthy with exercise, does any of the above ring any bells?
Avatar n tn I was waking in the night with migraines and now it's been three weeks with not a hint of one. I have read and understand all the side effects. The hair loss, the confussion, the tingling, the weight loss (for me this is not a good thing, I am thin to begin with) But I would rather deal with any of these side effects then deal with a minute of what of was prescribed Topamax for....MIGRAINES!!!! Horrible, Painful, Migraines, a pain so bad that it makes one want to curl up and die.

Avatar n tn I've been taking 500mg metformin myself and I have not experienced any weight loss. I am actually taking it for diabetes treatment. But it has not helped with my weight loss.
Avatar m tn The good news is that both forms of fatty liver disease can be reversed when the cause of the fat build up is stopped. Stopping the drinking of alcohol or and weight loss for those with NAFLD. Hair loss is unrelated to fatty liver disease for the same reason. I would look elsewhere. Have you had your thyroid checked? "To those unpleasant, visible symptoms that appeared suddenly (and have now largely gone) ... could alcohol poisoning have caused them?
Avatar n tn Does anyone else out there have hair around their areolas..not just a few...a lot. What about hair on their stomach..what some people call the "love line". I am SICK of hair..I don't know what to do! I even have hair "few" on my chest and shoulders.

Avatar f tn This time he had his adenoids removed at my assistance and the ENT surgeon told me afterwards that they were very enlarged. My son has a small nose and a flat bridge. He now has permanent hearing loss of up to 30% mainly in his left ear. This time the ENT surgeon said there is no fluid in the ears and he could not put in grommets as there was no room!! I had to ask for clarification and was told that there was no space between the inner ear and middle ear.
Avatar f tn Anyone with inadequate caloric or nutritional dietary intake or increased nutritional requirements. Those who abuse alcohol or other drugs. People with a chronic wasting illness, excess stress for long periods or who have recently undergone surgery. Those with a portion of the gastrointestinal tract surgically removed. People with recent severe burns or injuries.
Avatar n tn He was clean from drugs (I think) but heavily abusing alcohol. His work suffered A LOT. He bleached his hair and let his physical appearance go. He got several DUIs. On March 3, he didn't show up for work. His manager and another co-worker went to his house to check on him and found him in his bed. He'd shot himself in the head. I went to the hospital and sat with him until he died later that day. This disease kills. Now those left behind suffer.
529981 tn?1212853666 Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help.

393709 tn?1295968016 I remember thinking how I would take her her hair for her prom....teach her to drive....I did all those things and I loved every minute of it. We adored eachother. She looked to me for everything. I wanted her to. I wanted to surround her with my love and adoration. I took her on vacation, took her to work with me, did all the things that made sisters, sisters. She grew up, and moved to Nashville to sing. The most beautiful voice.

558096 tn?1255890602 Fortunately my hair is pretty thick so I didnt notice the loss until I saw the spikey hair growing in. 6) Couldnt pee for nothing so I looked like a big puff ball and poop forget it. (sorry you wanted to know everything right :). Thank God I didnt have the teeth issue because between the weight gain, the oily skin, the constant sweating, the puffiness and the hair loss I was having a pretty hard time in the self esteem department. Since I have gotten off the is my 10th day.
Avatar m tn - Slight hair loss. I also developed a chest infection, but I assume that I was unrelated and has gone now anyway. By Monday, the symptoms above had got so troublesome that I spoke to one of the hospital doctors. He said that liver function and other blood tests had been done when I was admitted. He talked me through some of these: AST, ALT and GGT were all elevated, but not dramatically. Other tests were all in normal ranges.
Avatar m tn s=nioxin_products Ilost about half of my hair by the 6th month of tx. My niece is a hair stylist and recommended the Nioxin. After using it for about a month, It started growing back. Looked like little porcupine head. LOL ... I bought It at Ulta II. They also sell it at hair salons.

955471 tn?1246744911 You may drive dangerously or pick fights. People with adjustment disorders also may abuse alcohol or drugs, engage in violence, and have thoughts of suicide. If you or a loved one has suicidal thoughts or is seriously considering hurting someone, seek help immediately. Talk to your doctor if you're having trouble getting through each day. You can get treatment to help cope better with stressful events and feel better about life again.
Avatar f tn As your skin, hair, and fingernails grow more slowly, they become thickened, dry, and brittle. Some hair loss may be noticed. Then, as your hypothyroidism becomes more severe, changes may occur in the tissues beneath your skin that lead to a characteristic puffy, swollen appearance known as myxedema. This is often particularly apparent around your face and eyes.
Avatar n tn By far the most common cause of excess fat accumulation in liver cells is alcohol abuse. Excessive alcohol intake can damage the liver in a number of ways, but one of the known mechanisms is by excess fatty acid production that is a result of ethanol metabolism, and subsequent deposition of these acids in the liver. Malnutrition alone can also cause this to occur, but unfortunately many heavy drinkers do not eat properly.
1530342 tn?1405020090 However, the analysis excluded individuals who reported more severe maltreatment such as physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, physical neglect, emotional neglect, or exposure to intimate partner violence. "It definitely points to the direction that physical punishment should not be used on children of any age," said Afifi.
