A member asked:

I suffer ocd/anxiety. ct scan showed "diffuse/extensive aortal calcification" and so am now on crestor. i get that nicotine gum may contribute to vascular disease, but it also helps with my ocd. in the short term, does risk outweigh anxiety relief?

Specializes in Child Psychiatry

Probably: A good eval for anxiety indicated, maybe 2nd opinion to identify all options and work on best choice ones
