What is the best thing to do to start to aid "bladder leakage"? Is there a medication that I can start to relieve it?
Maybe...: If you are having leakage of urine when you cough, laugh, or sneeze...a condition known as stress urinary incontinence...it may be due to declining sex hormone levels.

But in other women, I've had some success recommending OTC pseudoephedrine ("Sudafed") which tightens sphincters. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Everyone is: different but setting target date to stop and then stopping completely on that day can be effective. Learning some self-hypnosis can support this plan of action. Chewing gum or eating mints is useful, especially at high risk times like coffee breaks. Peace and good health.

Can I take Somnapure natural sleep aid and Puritea natural energy and antioxidants from Peak Life with current medications?
I'd be careful ...: As you know, manufacture of herbal supplements is not regulated so their purity, safety and effectiveness can not be guaranteed. You are on some medicines, including Lamictal and Toviaz, (fesoterodine) which are unique and actually could interact with quite a few things. Somnopure contains valerian extract & Puritea contains ginseng. I hate to discourage something that sounds so promising, but I would avoid. ...Read more

Like many chronic conditions with difficult management you will find a multitude of treatment suggestions on the net that have little value. Identifying learning problems, meds and talk therapy are the basic approach. ...Read more

Sudden increase in hair loss- started taking 20 mg atarax 2 months ago for sleep aid- direct relationship? If so, if medication stopped will hair loss stop immediately?
Not likely related: Loss of hair (alopecia) is not listed on the known rare side effects lists for hydroxyzine and a brief literature search doesn't indicate any case reports. However, idiosyncratic individual reactions to drugs are always possible. I would see a dermatologist for examination of your skin and hair and get advice there. If you stop, and it is related, I would expect gradual improvement, not rapid. ...Read more
