Was prescribed Celexa. How safe is it? Do I have to worry about long QT or Tardive Dyskinesia?  I have no history of either.  What do I need to know?

As for TD, I have never had a patient develop that on an antidepressant. ...Read more

Related: People with primary ciliary dyskinesia get frequent lung infections & develop chronic lung damage (bronchiectasis) over time. The recurrent infections & chronic inflammation in their airways causes them to not gain weight adequately (as they burn extra calories trying to fight these infections). This issue can be overcome by maintaining a very high caloric intake which can be hard to do. Talk 2doc. ...Read more
