None.

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

I'm on current medications for Bipolar 1

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

No allergies.... trazadone, Sertraline, ambien, lamictal, seroqyl...

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. The peth test detects binge and heavy drinking over the past 21 days. It is likely to be positive due to this single heavy binge

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.
