Customer Question
I started on clonazepam...

I started on clonazepam a month ago because of crippling insomnia. I also have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome and bipolar major depressive disorder. For a while all I did was sit on my couc and cry

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

The klonopin at 6mg will sometimes give me a full night rest where other nights hardly at all. We tried mirtazepine and hydroxyzine and trazodone which was all a fail and made me worse

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

I was on lorazepam for 7 years and went thru withdrawals and never regained my ability to sleep. I started 40mg cymbalta 3 days ago and am very tired. I'm on adderall until the cymbalta gets working

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!!
