Fluoxetine And A Few Drinks (alcohol)

I have been taking flu now for 9 weeks and still have good and bad days. I am very anxious at times and feel impending doom which isn't helpful when I lead a busy life ie full time job and have a young child!! I still want to enjoy myself and although I don't need to I wouldn't mind a few glasses of wine with my girlies every now and then to relax and have fun. I'm wondering should I miss my 20mg flu capsule the day I want to have a few drinks?

Omeprazole And PPI Bad For Kidneys?

I know everyone bad mouths omeprazole and PPI but I really feel like they saved my life. For two yrs I was against taking them and had constant chest pains, reflux, and lost 30 pounds because all I ate was chicken and rice. Now, after taking the meds I feel like I got my life back. I go out again with my husband and friends, I can eat again (still no chocolate or coffee) and am chest pain free. However, now I see reports of these meds damaging kidneys and I feel trapped. I can't go off the meds cuz the chest pains come right back. Any advice?

Food / Beverages :: Beer Vs. Soda

Yes, you know I like my beer. Now, is there really any difference between having a beer or two or a soda or two? I actually cannot drink soda due to the massive carbonation. It hurts my GERD. Beer doesn't give me any problems, and I like the taste better anyway. Don't get me wrong, I still drink a lot of water and milk, just enjoy a beer on occasion.

What Has Caused My Kidneys To Reduce Uric Acid Removal

I have had gout since I was 48 years old and now at age 53 the flare-ups are more frequent from every 4-6 months to every other month. my diet is eat whatever I want and beer, changing my diet has been in progress for that last couple of years anyways. stopped drinking colas and diet sodas (lost weight and do not miss it) eating a lot less red meat is a good thing eliminating beer is a tough one. In the early years of gout I started with Indomethacin,piroxicam, colcrys and a couple others that I forgot the name, these meds worked fine in the beginning then their effectiveness has reduced to "not much help" I have lately had great luck with a 60mg injection of Toradol. my GP wants me to start taking a daily 300mg of Allopurinol (which I have long term doubts of) I am 5"7" 185 lbs and mountain bike 2-3 days a week for 20 years.

My question is: what has caused my kidneys to stop filtering out the Uric acid? or is changing of the diet helping the kidneys be more effective? a friend wants me to talk with an acupuncture doc, I do not have renal failure or history of diabetes.
