Customer Question
I am currently on...

I am currently on Zoloft and Xanax for anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. In the past few months I have suffered from uncontrollable crying fits, lose of appetite, sudden weight lose, memory and concentration lose, and I am scared.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?

I took a mental health assessment online and it seems that I do have signs of a couple disorders. I feel like i cant breath, headaches, dizziness, sweaty palms.

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

It's been going on for about 6months, i'm scared to talk to anyone, not to mention that I don't know who to talk to I learned in 2016 that my dad's side of the family suffered from severe anxiety, depression and possibly bipolar disorder.

That same cousin attempted suicide in 2008 and his death in 2016 was due to his car being wrapped around a freeway column.

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.
