Question: I have heard Natura Releif is a miracle drug for bipolar disease. I do not have by bipolar disease but have PTSD from years of living with a bipolar spouse. We are divorced now but is there any information on this
supplement beside the sale website. Would this be helpful for PTSD. I take 15mg of Lexpro and 1mg of Ativan a day.

Brief Answer:
Yes you can use Natura Relief for early response.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for asking from

I can understand your concern. Natura Relief is a supplement that is marketed to use in ADHD or ADD mainly. The supplement consists of a lot of natural supplements like Valerian root, Ashwagandha, Kava, Passion fruit etc. These are used commonly in anxiety and depression. These supplements help to improve concentration and focus.

So yes you can use the Natura Relief for early effects of the drugs. But remember that this is a supplement and not a substitute of medicines. This would help in reducing your PTSD symptoms definitely. No need to worry

Thanks, Take care

Yes, I had polio at age 5 in 1954-1955(6months on crutches and in braces). I seemed to recover well. I played sports, educated, etc. I am just wondering if the following symptoms reflect progression of post polio. I am exhausted and tire easily( I used to run marathons). I have low bone density and have been given vitamin D. I am and have been for many years depressed (antidepressants do not help). I have always had terrible sleeping problems to the point of developing dependency on sleeping medication. My ADHD seems to be worse and without Ritalin, which I take sparingly, I can not focus well. Maybe I am just a high functioning post-polio neurotic but I just can t seem to get going anymore and I am not sure what to do. I am early retired, unwillingly and want to live a better life. Thanks, Tim Howard

I am an 84 year old male with a high IQ. The first sign of memory issues occurred at age 12 when I got into a dispute with the English teacher becasue I said I could not memorize a poem. Memory issues were more pronounced in high school where memory became more important. But I got through high school and college with a B to B+ average. If I have ADHD, I have managed to overcome it pretty well, except for being disorganized all the time. Disorganization, impulsivity remain. But memory issues are increasing in the past couple years. I wonder if ADHD is affecting my memory more now but it might be helped with ADHD RX.

I am a recovering alcoholic with 7 years sobriety. I started taking through my doctor vyvanse for adult ADHD. He put me on 50 mg but it wasn't helping much so I upped my dose by .25 mg for two weeks. I asked to increase my dose to 70 which is working great. My question is did I relapse since I took more than what my doctor initially prescribed?
Thank you for your response.
