Customer Question
Is this service free...

Is this service free?

Doctor's Assistant: The Neurologist's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.

Sorry. I can't afford anything.

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Neurologist will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Neurologist can help you best.

I have severe diabetic neuropathy pain in both legs and feet. Take 600 mg Gabapentin BID. Is this the max I can take? Thanks. Sorry cannot paY.

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Neurologist should know?

Also take Mirapex 1 mg BID for severe restless leg syndrome. Am retired RN so can understand short answer. Am 69 y/o female with a lot of medical problems.
