I consume 6-8pints of water per day and have an average type body with about average activity levels, is it safe for me to have 2oz of bourbon a day?

Not really!: It doesn't go that way, that the more water you consume, the safer it is to consume bourbon.Alcohol can be dehydrating, and depending on your BMI, you could be overdiluting and drinking too much water! So, best is to avoid alcohol or bourbon daily, altogether. It's toxic to nerves. Speak to ur PCP on why you're drinking so much water? More importantly? Have that worked up! Need to find out cause! ...Read more

I consume 7pints of water per day and have an average type body with about average activity levels, is it safe for me to have 2oz of bourbon in a day?

Not really.: For heart health that is near the limit, for cancer prevention, less. There is no known benefits to bourbon health-wise such as reseveratrol in red wine. Best to cut down from daily drinking to a few times per week and no drinking alone. http://www.prevention.com/food/food-remedies/alcohol-consumption-limits-men-and-women ...Read more

Is 1 mg a day from 0.5 mg a day of CLONAZEPAM a big increase in dosage for PANIC DISORDER or not really?

Is 1 mg a day from 0.5 mg a day of CLONAZEPAM a big increase in dosage for PANIC DISORDER or not really?

Not really: but benzodiazepines should rarely, if ever, be the primary treatment of panic disorder. I see you are on a beta blocker, and those can help somewhat as well, but the primary treatment is generally with a combination of psychotherapy (cognitive behavioral therapy) and SSRI/SNRI antidepressants. Antidepressants can prevent panic attacks, while benzodiazepines really do not. Benzos should be limited ...Read more

I take b-100 2x a day for cholesterol, really for the niacin, is that a good amount?

I take b-100 2x a day for cholesterol, really for the niacin, is that a good amount?

Probably not: Most b-100's contain b3 in the form of niacineamide, which does not lower cholesterol, not niacin. The doses of Niacin shown to lower cholesterol are at least 500 mg/day. But while Niacin lowers LDL & raises hdl, it's not clear if this lowers risk of heart disease, in part because cholesterol is not the main cause of heart disease.

Yes caffeine has: little effect on your depression anxiety problem, though a lot of it can trigger some shakes since it is a mild stimulant.

Do i need BP meds if my normal BP is 118/67 but spikes to 170/85 after a few cups of coffee. It stays high for a day or two but like coffee daily?

Do i need BP meds if my normal BP is 118/67 but spikes to 170/85 after a few cups of coffee. It stays high for a day or two but like coffee daily?

Choose coffee or med: If you like coffee daily and it stays high a day or 2 after then it sounds like it is always high. If you really want coffee every day then you should take BP meds to control your bp, but it sounds to me like your system reacts unusually poorly to coffee- you may be allergic to it & it may harm you in other ways. I advise you to avoid coffee- i don't think it is worth endangering your health! ...Read more
