Hi a very good...

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

Omg, I'm asking for my friend Amy and know she takes a lot of meds and is diabetic. But I do not know what the meds are

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

I know she takes vicodin, clonazapam, and some kind of anti depression. But she's been on them for yrs

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
