I’ve been sober for 10 months and I started taking this

Customer Question
Hello, I’ve been sober...

Hello, I’ve been sober for 10 months and I started taking this thing called kava, and i took it because it was natural. Well it didn’t relax me so I don’t know how many I’m up to a day

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

Lost of appetite, one day I over dosed, meaning no food in system, I thought I was dying I tried to stop but it was sooooo uncomfortable

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

I’m bipolar I’ve never had problems with pills in my life. This happened to be a quick fix and it was deceiving. I’ve called everywhere medical for help and there is NONE

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.
