Customer Question
My doctor diagnosed me...

My doctor diagnosed me with anxiety.. and in order to calm it down she put me on two prescriptions. One being busiprone that I take twice a day, and the other being Zoloft that I take once a day. My 21st birthday is ***** and I was planning on drinking but first I wanted to make sure that it was safe to do so while taking these prescriptions.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

When I go like far distances like away from home my anxiety kicks in but other than that no

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

No, I only take those two prescriptions and other than that I’m pretty healthy.

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.
