Brief Answer: Better to avoid it Detailed Answer: Hi, These herbal products affect your mind. If you are already psychotic and under treatment, I suggest you to be away from this medication unless indicated for any medical purpose. I would suggest you to please consult your doctor once, before starting them. Thank you

Brief Answer: Actions could be more hazardous Detailed Answer: Herbal product of these medicine means you are taking the crude product of medicine, which could have action that is more violent, and if you are switching the medicine from your present medication, you could suffer with withdrawal symptom. This requires a perfect control dose of medicine to treat. You have mentioned many medicines but we won’t have any combination of such medicine so you have to take individual medicine of each. I can do one thing if you can mention all your present and past history, then I can suggest you some good medicine, which will help you to solve your problem. Please answer. Thanks

I only want to take this -concoction- of herbs once. In order to generate a legal or natural high. rather than taking illicit drugs. I dont do drugs but this herbal mixture is an alternative to drugs. I want to know if it will have any interaction with my medication or cause me to re-incur psychosis like sympytoms

Brief Answer: Detailed below Detailed Answer: There are two things 1 either you take the abstract of above mentioned drug 2 or I can suggest you some medicine which can help you get relief. I strongly not suggest you to follow suggestion first because medicines have their unique action, if two or more than two medicine are combined and they have a fixed parameter. I do not know by what ratio they are prepared. If you are getting relief with your current medication you have to take opinion from your doctor and if you want to switch the medication, maybe I can help you. We cannot continue both the medicine at same time. Hope i have cleared your doubt If you have still any query, feel free to ask Thanks

My 18 year old high school son needs help and testing for hereditary diseases which he has symptoms of from both sides of the family, including ADD or ADHD, Bi-Polar, Aspergers, and Paranoia Schizophrenia. Also, possibly dyslexia and/or the math version may be affecting him, (he is home-schooled and beginning 11th grade) and he has sleep disorder problems. He has already been diagnosed with anxiety. Does St. Lukes Quakertown test for these ailments I have listed? We live close by, and like St. Luke s that cared for my husband, and son s father before he died in August. Traveling is difficult for me because I am handicapped. Both my son and I may be helped by some grief counseling.
