Hello, this is Dr K.. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a doctor/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today.

Dr. K. :

Hi there, I am sorry you are having a tough time getting off this. You may consider seeing a Dr to substitute a prescription med for a short time and then be weaned off it.

Dr. K. :

Have you tried something simple like a coffee drink or a protein shake?

Dr. K. :

Obviously its important to eat a small amount of both protein and carbohydrate in the morning.

Dr. K. :

While you need to be careful of some energy drinks, there are some that may help short term.

Dr. K. :

Rock Star for example

Dr. K. :

This energy drink contains ginseng, guarana, gingko and milk thistle Its safe and may give you the boost you need.

Dr. K. :

I hope this helps
