What are the physical and mental side effects of alcohol and prozac (fluoxetine). Beer mixed with tequila and prozac (fluoxetine)?
Alcohol & Depression: Alcohol in any form -- including beer and tequila -- is a depressant. Combined with prozac, (fluoxetine) you could have much more sedation or intoxication than you expect. Especially when used in large quantities, alcohol disrupts your sleep cycle and neuronal tone. People usually take Prozac (fluoxetine) for depression or anxiety. Disrupting your sleep & neurons can worsen these conditions. ...Read more

How does the dosing of mirena IUD compare with beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate)? I'm on beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate) for acne help and i'm wondering how mirena will compare.
Will not help acne: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD releases a very low level of hormone (a progesterone) inside the uterus. The hormone does not reach high levels in the blood stream, so should not affect one's face. Also, using just a progesterone isn't expected to help the acne on the face. The birth control pills that help acne are "combination" pills, with both estrogen and progesterone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What causes heavy long periods with the copper IUD is there any medication I can take. Can I take levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ED just to stop heavy long flow plz?
Known side effect: The copper IUD is known to cause heavier periods, probably due to localized irritation and inflammation. If it is sufficiently severe the solution is to remove the IUD. The Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) might help but that defeats the point of the IUD. A better approach would be to switch to the progesterone IUD which will actually decrease flow. ...Read more
Does drinking 3 cups of green tea daily for a prolonged period of time decrease the effectiveness of the birth control pills? I take Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 2 years.
No: Drinking green tea 3 times a day does not change the effectiveness of birth control pills. Of course, no pills are 100% effective, so there is always a very small chance a woman could become pregnant while using birth control pills, regardless of whether she drinks tea or not. The healthier way to drink tea is without sugar or sweeteners. ...Read more
Can alcohol reduce the effectiveness of the contraceptive pill? If you drink some alcohol 1-2 hours after taking it?
No, still effective: Alcohol is reported not to affect the effectiveness of birth control, but BCP may slow one's metabolism of alcohol, causing one to be impaired at lower amounts of intake. In addition, alcohol may definitely impair judgement regarding choice of partner or use of condoms/safe sex and has been known to cause some erectile dysfunction in men. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Smoking and HRT.: Smoking and HRT are very bad together, greatly increasing the risks of cardiovascular side effects, like blood clots and strokes. Alcohol in large quantities, both primarily and secondarily, can have some estrogenic effects which could impact those also taking HRT, too. Smoking is dangerous enough just by itself. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No and I suspect: that the fact you are asking this of a stranger online, rather than the doctor(s) who are prescribing these medications for you means that you KNOW that the answer is no. Alcohol can increase depression and anxiety in many people, as can marijuana. I will wager that your doctors don't know about your drinking or weed use. If you truly want help to get better, tell them and stop drinking/weed. ...Read more
