Customer Question
I have fragile x...

I have fragile x faxtas and can't seem to find prescription help for mood changes and anger out bursts

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

No allergies. Have tried myrtazopine and bupropion. Neither helped. My neurologist has now prescribed amantadine. Didn't start it yet.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am type 2 diabetic mostly controlled by diet.

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.
