Originally from South Florida, served in the United States Navy, to include residency and internship training, as a psychiatrist.

Continued on as a civilian provider at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune treatment Marines and Sailors with a large array of mental health conditions to include adjustment disorders, combat stress, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, alcoholism/substance disorders, and others.

A 53-year-old male asked:
Either is fine: Consistent use is important. If you feel tired shortly after taking it, taking it before bed would make sense. Good luck!
A 26-year-old male asked:
Supporting evidence: For many medical problems, supporting evidence is helpful to identify if you have the problem. On the other hand, if you realize that you tend to "over-react" that too is treatable with therapy or, if necessary, relatively safe medication.
A 38-year-old member asked:
Blood in urine: If there is a trace of blood and nothing else abnormal, then blood is entering your urine in some way. Are there symptoms like burning with urine, flank pain, recent infection, etc? In females this is common with recent period. See your doctor for further follow up as this needs to be looked at in a clinical context to be sure everything is good.
