Hello

Thanks for replying with the medications

After going through the list I see that you are taking Ativan and clonex both of which are from the same group called benzodiazapines. Both these medicines cause excessive sleepiness. I advice you to re check with your doctor to dose adjust these medicines to help you reduce the sleepiness.
Cipralex can also cause drowsiness and sleepiness. Please XXXXXXX your doctor as soon as possible to re prescribe your medications.

I hope I have answered your query, if you have no further ones please accept my answer

I wish you good health

Hello

If your serum IgG is positive for CMV means that you had got the infection of cytomegalo virus long time back and that you have developed long term protection towards it. Titres less than 400 au/ml is considered normal so there is nothing to worry, I advice you to get yourself checked for CMV IgM to know if you are suffering from an acute infection of CMV

I hope I have answered your query, please accept my answer if you have no further ones

I wish you good health
