Customer Question
I take Deplin and...

I take Deplin and have severe periods of shortness of breath.These seem to be associated with very moderate exercise. Could this be a side effect of Deplin?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

I have been to my primary doctor, a pulmonologist, a heart doctor and 2 ERs.They have done multiple tests and can not find anything wrong.

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

I am being treated for low thyroid and have a history of depression.
