dear all, good morning 
i have a question about  random effect probit model.
is it an acceptable to include dummy variables in random effects model. i'm asking this question because i've got strange results when  i added dummy variables to my model  .
that is , when i used random effects probit model to test my variables ( before adding dummy variables) as:
xtprobit y x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 x6, i(id)
mfx compute, predict (pu0)
i've got  significant results. however, when i added dummy variables to the model as:
xtprobit y x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 x6 x7  d2 d3  d4 d5, i(id)
mfx compute, predict (pu0)
the  results were strange: non of Z values were insignificant, except d3, moreover the Z values of variables wee almost the same  . can any one please help me and tell me whether it is an acceptable to use random effect probit model
