Customer Question
I feel so relaxed...

I feel so relaxed after taking my 1st serelax- is it because i also took 1 mg of lorazam with it or could it work better than lorazapam

Doctor's Assistant: How is your mood? Are you experiencing regular sleep disturbances (e.g. trouble falling asleep, waking up early)?

I feel great i take trazadone and 1 mg of lorazapam

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

I'd like to get off the lorazapam, sertaline and abilify is this going to charge me $

Hi, thanks for writing. It is hard to say if the serelax worked or if the lorazepam just did its job. You should take them separately to see. Make sure you let your doctor know you added the serelax. OTC remedies can interfere with prescription medications and are not well-regulated.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
