Depends: Routine screening for STDs in general is seldom performed anymore. On the other hand if you know you have been exposed to a particular one, you may be tested for several others as well.

Is dorzolamide/timolol safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding?

A Verified Doctoranswered
No: The answer is not a clear cut yes/no. The fda has assigned a category c rating which means there were some negative effects when given to animals at extremely high doses but no clear answer in humans. You should talk to your ob, eye doctor and pediatrician.

No: Both drugs are category c, which means there are no direct human harm shown, but animal studies show adverse effects on the fetus.
The benefits may outweigh the risks, under certain circumstances, this should be discussed with your doctor.
Rifampin is considered safe with breast feeding while Isoniazid is not and may decrease flow and quality of milk.

I have a uric acid level of 8.6. I don't want to start allupurinol. Is there some herbal option.I'm 29 yrs old male.Im also on Prozac (fluoxetine) for anxiety?

Unlikely to help: If you do not want medication , try not eat too much meat especially red meat , shell fish, avoid alcohol and drink plenty of water. Elevated uric acid is a bad metabolic disease not just painful gout, it will damage blood vessels including coronaries, best advice take medication.
