Hi doc...how are you? Well...
Hi doc...how are you? Well doc was very bad after stopping the lamictal completely... The pdoc said i did it far too quick and put me back on 100 and i started to feel better very quickly...well back to where i was feeling...unfortunately i went to galway and got carried away with myself and drank 5 pints , which wrecked me for a week ..ididnt feel like i had the strength to go back to work following week so i upped the lustral to 250 ..i got through work and there are positive signs of less worry, brain not moving as rapid etc but im also very dreamy alot of the time , spaced out and tired...im on the increase a week doc...give it another week i guess...just sometimes think , shit ive overcooked this again

Hi doc...oh its just so hard to do doc...in Ireland weve all drank from an early age about 13 and it is a huge culture here...very very few don't drink...i wish i could ..i miss the feeling, the fun you have , the social aspect... I just wish i had a choice but i dont...and sometimes i feel good , its sunny and warm, thousands of people are out drinking by the river on grass, outside every restaurant outside inside every pub...its not easy doc...i did 4 plus months though thats good hehe

I understand my Irish friend

Do you know the difference between an Irish wedding and an Irish wake?

Hahaha thats brilliant doc....never heard that one before lol...i guess Orlando isn't as booze oriented.. Probably miami though

Right you are

And right on--you need to give the increase some more time to level things out and I think you'll be better in another week

Just need to hang in as always buddy

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
