Common Practice: It is a long-standing belief among fighters that sex weakens the legs. I have known boxers who believed that sex before a fight was a good thing because it sharpened the reflexes.

Hello.. Thia is syed ali. I wanna ask that is it ok if I masturbates 2 times in a day or a week. And tell me some medicines that helps grow memory?

Masturbation: One question at a time here on health tap. Masturbation is a common and natural part of the human experience. There are no negative health consequences to masturbation.

Can I fail a drug test taking the diet pill, ali.?

Can I fail a drug test taking the diet pill, ali.?

Hmmm...: Best answer is to tell the tester that you are taking "alli" (i think that is the correct spelling) before you get the test. Honesty is the best policy! Of course, stopping the supplement about 1 week prior to the test should give your body ample time to metabolize it out of your system. Ask you doctor just to be sure. ...Read more

Why, when gals don' feel 'cuddly', or can't stand being in the room w/ their baby (as on the doctors tv show) are they not prescribed oxytocin? Ali

Why, when gals don' feel 'cuddly', or can't stand being in the room w/ their baby (as on the doctors tv show) are they not prescribed oxytocin? Ali

Good thought: Synthetic oxytocin, pitocin, is only used intravenously to help with labor. The new mom should be making plenty of her own oxytocin. Being a new mom, and not getting enough sleep, can make it difficult to bond with a baby at first. This will come with time. If her feelings are intense, and do not improve, she should be seen by her doctor to see if she has postpartum depression. ...Read more

Hi this is ali from pakistan I am 25 and have 110 kg weight n 5'11 height. How I lose weight 15 kg in 1 month? I'm waiting for a quick response. Thnks

See Dr., and then...: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

What is the best way to detox my body and what is the best diet pill? Is it ali?

Alli: I don't know much about detoxing. I have never been convinced that it is useful. As far as medicines to lose weight, I think most of them have not been shown to be safe long term. I don't generally recommend them because almost everyone gains the weight back as soon as they stop them. That said, of the medicines out there, Alli seems to be one of the safest, and is effective while using. ...Read more

Can I take horny goat weed or tongkat ali with lexapro (escitalopram)?

Unknown: Icariin (one of the ingredients in Goat Weed) can probably be taken for up to 6 months. The effects of chronic use have not been formally studied.

Is tongkat ali a good supplement to boost testosterone?

Is tongkat ali a good supplement to boost testosterone?

Supplements: The body generally does not need supplements to produce hormones. The regulatory system of hormone regulation generally does not react well to artificial manipulation and often causes more harm than good if there is not a hormone deficiency. Hormone deficiencies are generally treated with synthetic versions of the hormones, not pro-hormones or supplements. ...Read more

My male fiance has had no sexual desire since starting on 10mg of Lexapro and 150mg of wellbutrin (bupropion). Would horny goat weed or tongkat ali help at all?

My male fiance has had no sexual desire since starting on 10mg of Lexapro and 150mg of wellbutrin (bupropion). Would horny goat weed or tongkat ali help at all?

Reduced sexual desir: I agree with dr. Wartenburg on the need to be careful with herbs here in the us, and speaking with your husband's physician before adding any of these. There are no interactions between horny goat weed, tongkat ali (actually eurycoma longifolia), lexapro, and wellbutrin (bupropion). There is also not sufficient research data to assure that either of these herbs will work for the intended purpose. ...Read more

IN GENERAL: I would NOT recommend that you take ANY HERBAL REMEDIES with WARFARIN....MANY MANY MANY examples of inter-action of herbal remedies (for example GREEN TEA!!!) with Warfarin or Coumadin (warfarin) exist!

No sense in "taking chances"!

Ali had a tooth removed 3 days ago after the tooth fractured from a root canal. I still have pain in my gums and jaw. Is that normal?

Yes: You can expect to have some post operative pain for 7-10 days post an ext. But the pain should be manageable first few days with meds that control moderate levels of pain, tylenol (acetaminophen) #3, but after the third day, over the counter meds like extra strength tylenol (acetaminophen) 500mg should be enough. If after a week, you are still having pain, or if the pain is severe, see your dentist for a possible dry socket. ...Read more

Lichen planus: Special gargles containing anesthetics and anti-inflammatory medication often help reduce symptoms. If this topical treatment is not helpful then a brief course of steroid pills will likely help. If this persists, make sure it gets a biopsy to rule out other causes. ...Read more
