Please disregard questions from me to these Doctors : Dr. Steven Seres and Dr. Rick Koch. I have found the answer to my question. Thx, Jerry Neitzel?

This never hurts, though, and it's valuable to get >1 opinion. ...Read more
Dr. Tom heston faafp, fasnc, facnm is it ok to take wellbutrin, pristiq, and savella (milnacipran) together?
I am not Dr Heston, : And in my opinion, that combination is very good as long as those medications work together to relieve the symptoms of depression, anxiety and chronic pain.

Hope this answer to your question while awaiting for dr heston's. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Sir my homeopathy dr says duchenne muscular dystrophy is curable with homeopathy should l trust him?
Quackery & delusions: If that "doctor" really could do that, he'd win the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Homeopathy is not medicine. Practitioners have no real medical knowledge. Would you want your MD to practice 214-year-old medicine on you? Because that’s when homeopathy was invented. Join the 21st century.

Glaucoma. 1st opinion Dr. said maybe blind in 5 yrs. & see neuro Dr. 2nd opinion Dr. says glaucoma stable & neurologist not needed. Why difference?
Experience: Glaucoma can be a very challenging disease to treat and sometimes difficult to diagnose. If one of the doctors that you saw was a glaucoma specialist then I would lean towards their words of expertise. However if you have not seen a glaucoma specialist then I would recommend getting a third opinion, if possible, with an experienced specialist to settle which direction you should go. ...Read more

Psychiatry appt.: I'm not sure what you're requesting here, since you already have an appointment with a psychiatrist with whom you can discuss tapering valium.
