Customer Question
My son died and...

My son died and diagonsis was xanax and alchol but he had a blow to the head the night before. Would this have something to do with it?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that makes your head feel worse or better?

What I just said my son died and they said it was xanax and alchol. He had a major blow to the head the night before.

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.
