Hello - This is Dr. Shaun and I am a pharmacist with over 15 years of experience. Thank you for the question and for using JustAnswer.

Unfortunately we do not prescribe or fill prescriptions on this site. This is only a question/answer service. However I would like to help you as much as I can.

There are services that offer an online "doctor visit" that you could use. A couple of these are MDLive (www.mdlive.com) and Doctor on Demand (www.doctorondemand.com). These are generally quick and easy, you speak to a live doctor that can diagnose and prescribe this way. These are usually a lot cheaper than visiting an emergency room or urgent care clinic also.

Good morning. I am following up to make sure you were able to get care. Were you able to make it to the doctor or utilize one of the recommended services? Are you feeling better?

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

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

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!!
