Not meds alone: Medications alone will not solve this problem, yet your psychiatrist may have been trying to ease your way into working on this. You can also benefit from talk therapy with a psychologist/other psychotherapist to explore & deal with your anxieties and other possible issues. Working with such a therapist will allow you to develop specific ways of improving your situation. Good luck! ...Read more

It is ok to use old solutions, like for glasses cleaning?

Probably: If you are using a solution on externally worn eyeglasses, and it seems effective, it should have no effect on your health and hopefully it is not a corrosive solution which will damage your glasses. There is generally no expiration date on cleaners used in the house unless they are for medical purposes. ...Read more

Recurrent itching: If u r using all those topical steroid creams, they may be causing the itching: overuse can cause steroid acne; treatment is to stop their use. Levocetirizine is a non-sedating anti-histamine used to calm itching, inflammation. If itching was problem b4 using steroids, see dermatologist or allergist to determine cause & get treatment options. ...Read more

Experience: Ehr's were promoted under a false premise that they might improve medical care - but this was not subjected to clinical trials. Most ehr's are modified business programs, which require precision input to the computer taking time away from the patient. No study has proven their advantages except in billing efficiency and doctor monitoring. Improvements may come, but for now they are unproven. ...Read more

Bad idea : No conscious physician would recommend any person other than the person prescribed take a prescription medication. Certainly not a controlled medication such as codeine. I'd talk to your physician directly about potential risks & side effects of controlled meds which can be fatal. ...Read more
