Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for choosing wwwhealthcaremagic
It is a very interesting question. 99% questions are about bad effects of masturbation? Yes, there are some positive effects of masturbation. Masturbation is manual sex and orgasm attained is same as vaginal sex. Orgasm is associated with release of endorphins causing relaxation, dopamine causing feeling of pleasure, increase immunity, reduces stress and blood pressure and help build trust due to release of oxytocin . Too much involvement to the level of distress to self or others is bad otherwise it is perfectly fine.

Why is the medical disorder of epilepsy frequently misdiagnosed as a psuedoseizure requiring the care of a psychiatrist, as well as psychotropic drugs? Do they not realize that by blocking the seratonin and dopamine receptors, which are natural anticonvulsants, and increasing an amino acid which will induce seizure activity-and that is precisely what psychotropic drugs do, the potential harm that they may be causing the patient?

I am 57 YO F, smoker who would like to quit, currently smoking about 20-25 per day. About 8 years ago I tried Zyban (wellbutrin) I cant remember which, and it was working great for about 3 weeks, and it really helped reduce the cravings and I felt great.

But- then I started getting itching in my palms and bottom of feet, and in a few days my skin started literally peeling off. No redness or obvious blisters, just sort of came off in layers, After discussing with my PCP i discontinued the drug.

2 questions-
1 -Do you think it might be safe to try it again? If it did not get too severe it might be able to live with it for awhile
2 - Could Chantix cause similar reactions- is it based on the same compounds, or ingredients? I think both are dopamine receptor related so was wondering if the same thing might happen with Chantix.
