About

Bio

Originally from South Florida, served in the United States Navy, to include residency and internship training, as a psychiatrist. I have worked closely with the US Marines since arrival at Camp Lejeune in 2006. Completed combat deployment to Iraq for 14 months. 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. Responsibilities encompass direct patient care as well as clinical supervision of civilian staff in part based on prior military training and experience, military specialty/forensic and administrative examinations.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Either is fine: Consistent use is important. If you feel tired shortly after taking it, taking it before bed would make sense. Good luck!

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.
