I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Can I take depression medication with my diabetes and cholestrol medication ? Will a combination of such medicines have any side-effects on my health ?

I take Januvia 100mg (1tablet) every morning and Modilip 5mg (1 tablet) for my diabetic and cholesterol condition. My doctor has prescribed SZetalo 5mg for my depression . Will SZetalo interfere with my other medicines? How long can I continue taking SZetalo?

Hi dear

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

These drugs can be taken safely together.There are no proven adverse interactions between these three drugs .Escitalopram should be taken as prescribed by your Doctor.Escitalopram should not be stopped abruptly as it can cause withdrawal symptoms.

Take care.

Hello. I have been smoking about a pack a day for 5 years. I m 22 male. My bowel movements have been lightly colored, slightly flaky and become cloudy when flushed. I have researched chronic pancreatitis and share similar symptoms. Usually my stool is harder and darker in color when I do not smoke previously for up to an hour or so. I have tried to quit smoking and will continue to do so in time but unfortunately, I do not have very much time to sit through withdrawal symptoms with my busy lifestyle. Sometimes I show signs of undigested food, possibly mucus in stool but I m not sure. Is there anything I can do? I do not have health insurance unfortunately. Are their alternatives to help regulate my digestive system?
