Posted on Mon, 27 Nov 2017
Question: Hi,

I have a few things I am hoping to figure out
I had a baby a year ago and was a forced delivery.
After I have had urinary problems
Hard to go
Comes out in different streams
If push too hard have a bowel movement and bladder hardly ever feels empty
I also have some stretch marks I would like to get rid of
I have anxiety and take adderol and clonopin
I have been tending to get more anxiety at night and sometimes have sugar cravings.

Thank you,

Hxxxxxr

Brief Answer:
Incomplete evacuation could be due to infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello thanks for asking from HCM

The problem of passing of urine is occurring most likely due to some residual infection during delivery resulting in urinary infection. This might be due to trauma during delivery too. Both these possibilities should be ruled out for incomplete evacuation.

For stretch marks please visit a dermatologist for opinion. You should massage to affected areas with vitamin E soft gels. Regular massage will reduce the intensity and you will definitely see improvement.

Adderall is an amphetamine drug and this could worsen the anxiety. Klonopin can help to reduce the anxiety symptoms and is right drug for anxiety. If your anxiety is persisting then SSRIs should be used for treatment.

Thanks.

Brief Answer:
Acamprosat or Baclofen can be used.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again

Alcohol cause significant dependence. Acamprosate can be used to reduce its craving. The drug should be taken regularly in order to reduce the craving. Even Baclofen also reduce craving. You can talk with your doctor for these drugs.

Adderall doesn't increase the craving of alcohol but yes by causing stimulation the drug can increase the alcohol drinking behaviour.

A lot of natural supplements are there in markets but most of these are not proven clinically by research studies.

Thanks

Still have doubts please ask again.
