Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

Hot baths better, I'm eating foods with potassium and magnesium, looked it up on line.

Hi there,
I suggest using Melatonin or Benadryl for sleep.

Just checking to ensure you were able to get some sleep. Sorry about the short answer last night. It was pretty late, but I wanted to be sure you have something to take for sleep.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
You might have to go back on Restoril if other meds don't help. Just be sure to speak with your doctor.

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

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!!
