  • Answer: A number of antidepressants, like zoloft, paxil, cymbalta, and effexor XR are approved for treatment of certain common anxiety disorders like generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder, among others. These meds are not sedatives and do not have the addictive qualities of meds used in the past for anxiety disorders (i.e., benzodiazepines).


    There are also a number of herbal remedies available, ranging from mild herbal teas like chamomile and lemon balm, to more potent medicines like passionflower. Passionflower shows some evidence of acting similarly to the benzodiazepines, but does not seem to have the same trouble with addiction / dependency, and is generally safer, although it is still a medicinal herb and not safe for long-term beverage use.

  • Answer: Cat is digested at a similar rate to any other red meat, which on average take from 1 to 3 days to be completely digested and eliminated from the body. If devoured entirely, there may be other factors.
    Hair (fur) is not digestible and in large enough quantities, the undigested hair might eventually develop into a "trichobezoar," a hairball, which could ultimately require emergency surgery. The sharp nails may also be problematic, as they are chemically similar to hair, and as well as not being digested, could cause lacerations of the gastrointestinal tract. In regards to the bones, it depends on how much processing (chewing) has occurred before the cat was swallowed. Humans can break down bone with enzymes and acids that are found in the stomach. This is a function intended to break down and smoothe sharp edges of bone which have been ingested accidentally, allowing them to pass through the body without causing damage. In large quantities, specifically an entire cat, the amount of surface area of the bone will play a major role in determining the time-frame of digestion.

    Additional factors, such as the size, breed and whether or not the cat was domesticated may play a role in determining the processing time, however one may ask the question, "If you made the decision to eat your pet, do you really care how long it takes before you drop the brown kittens off to the pool?"
  • Answer: This is a good question to ask your local pharmacist who is usually happy to answer such questions. What I know is that both anti-anxiety medications and alcohol can h lead to depression symptoms and since anxiety is often the flip-side of depression it does not make a lot of sense to drink while taking this medication. That actually can be said for most medications, alcohol can interfere with the effectiveness of medications ie. anti-depressants. It is also possible that drinking, because its immediate effect is, for some people ,to act like a mood elevator( a blocker of awareness to negative emotions) can escalate to a at risk level when a person is anxioius. The person finds the immediate pay-offs pleasant, does not care about the long range effects, and can substitute good self-care and medical follow-up, with self-medicating with alcohol and drugs. A small amount of alcohol ,as a beverage I think (ask pharmacist) is unlikely to be a problem, even a de-stressor. The Addiction Research Foundation in Canada has safe drinking guidelines which i think are about 1-2 drinks about three times per week. I hope you are feeling better.
