Question: I seem to get slightly slurred speech after just 1 beer. I am not intoxicated at all, but my saliva seems to get thicker, which causes the slurred speech. I am also on 10mg Paxil. My wife is concerned because there is a history of Kidney problems in my family, but never had a problem with me. What could this be?

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXX,
This is Dr.Chintan solanki here.
Thanks for using healthcaremagic.
Your slurring speech might be due to paxil.Normally this type of extrapyramidal symptom is side effect of antipsychotic medicines, but paroxetine can cause.
However as it occurred after bear there might be some drug interaction.
It can be treatet with benzhexol(trihexyphenydyl) or injection promethazine.
So please visit doctor ,late him evaluate and physically examine you. Neurological examination should be done thouroghly. And then treatment should be given.
I hope I have answered your query, if still any confusion late me know.
Thanks & Regards.

I currently take several medications for different health issues. Two of these are Lexapro and Wellbutrin. I was diagnosed with acute depression about 7 years ago and numerous medicines were tried individually. It was only when these two were prescribed in combination that the depression became noticeably less severe. However, after therapy for 5 years and a stay in a mental "hospital", I still do not have my life back. I was wondering if adding Celexa might be something I should discuss with my doctor? I used a Drug Interaction questionnaire which indicated there were no serious interactions with any of my medications, even if I included Celexa. Is Celexa actually an anti-depressant or is it similar to Abilify? Thank you! God Bless You and Your Family.

I have a bad cold with cough (for about a week now) and want to take coricidin II at night to get a good nights sleep. I checked for drug interactions as I am on meds for high blood pressure and 20 mg. of Prozac. There was a major caution due to possible serotonin syndrome - how great is the risk? I have been taking Prozac for more than 15 years and I titrate my dosage based on my mood over time. Right now I only need 20 mg. but in the winter it is usually 40 mg. Would taking Coricidin II at night for a couple of nights be too much of a risk? I believe it is called coricidin HBP in the US
