I am estimating a regression that has no-lineal (or product of variables) variables in their dependent terms - for example:
 
regress y x xz
 
  The program Stata doesn't allow logical operators in the command regress (or other equation terms as probit) and for that it is previously necessary to define the variable (for example: gen w = xz). However, if the interest is to calculate marginal effects or elasticities (using mfx or margeff or dprobit) - that procedure invalidates the results because the terms no lineal they are not considered (for example: dy/dx = 1 + z and no 1).
 
   Which the simplest way to solve that problem?
 
Thank you,

Jose C.
