    Is "manhandling" what some blokes can't resist doing in the trouser dept when they are "manspreading"?
    Or when they're "mansplaining" I believe

    I didn't even know what a knish was until Vee showed me

    It's funny that we men have the term mansplaining. I think it must come from the fact women tend to be 'splaining all the time to us so it's too common to count whereas we deserve some special acknowledgement when we come up with a point! Like the little boy running in to tell his mother he's just done something cool to get a pat on the head

    Re: serotonin syndrome

    And the first thing you asked me was if you could put matzoh balls in it, Terry

    I think it's funny that a bunch of annoying things start with "men"... menstruation, menstrual cycle, mental, menopause, menace, meningitis...

    While it is more likely to have an effect than mirtazapine, even so you're unlikely to notice anything untoward.
    Thanks, Ian! My gyno said just take it and watch out for a fever or diarrhea etc I'm only going to take it when the pain hits a 10 (and it does, apparently it's comparable to labour pains)

    Diarrhoea isn't a reliable indicator of serotonin syndrome as it is a common AD side-effect. Fever can be as the danger of SS is a large spike in temperature, but other symptoms usually occur earlier. The Hunter Serotonin Toxicity Criteria (PDF) requires at least 3 of the following to be present: Mental status changes (confusion, hypomania), Agitation, Myoclonus, Hyper reflexia, Diaphoresis, Shivering, Tremor, Diarrhoea, Uncoordination and Fever.
