For how many days?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I’ve been like that for over a year now, since having this drink I’ve read up about it and I shouldn’t of had it with asthma

Thanks for the details

Yes you should avoid such drinks as they do have addiction potential as well

I think for the shortness of breath you do need a short course of steroids

That will help in settling your shortness of breath

Avoid any other product without informing or discussing with your doctor

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Okay I will ask my gp on Monday thank you, ***** ***** just ask would the lean cause permanent damage for just having it the once ? And do people get help to get off smoking weed

No it will not cause a permanent damage

You can seek a referral from your GP to drug addiction center if you want to quit

Please do let me know if you have any other question

If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
