Can taking Miraplex for...

Can taking Miraplex for the first time cause a patient to fall?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

It's my husband and the only symptom he had was feeling very "woozy." After two falls he slept so soundly for a day and night he was not able to answer yes or no to me.

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

No, otherwise he is in good health.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

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.
