Customer Question
My mother is on...

My mother is on numerous medications . She suffers from many issues physically along with IBS. We are now trying to figure out what to do because she is going from constipation to diarrhea every few days. I am wondering if some of her meds could be causing it.

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

She is allergic to Sulfur and Prednisone. May I take a snap shot of her lost because there are many.

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

She had hip replacement in October and they have been giving her epidural injections for back pain.

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!

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!!
