Customer Question
I regularly take generic...

I regularly take generic 5 mg ambien for insomnia. However, I am currently fighting upper respiratory infection. The doctor prescribed promethazine with codeine for the coughing. Can I take both. I’ve been awake for 20.5hrs now.

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

Ambien 5mg, amitriptyline 10mg (I’m out). Only had a bad reaction to oral lamasil. Other than that NKA.

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

The doctor also prescribed Cefdinir, and Montelucast for the URI

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

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!!
