Customer Question
I was just wondering...

I was just wondering if there's such a thing as a doctor who could help me get a medication that would help me stop drinking alcohol at night to sleep in my area

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

I am not allergic to any medications and I just I take a blood pressure pill and I take a viibryd for depression

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

I had thyroid cancer over 25 years ago but other than that two C-sections and I am overweight I think it's because I'm just depressed but I just don't I know that alcohol is not helping me at all
