    Dear Dr. Dharma,

    I am taking Amolodipine Besylate 5MG 1x a day at night.

    I want to get off this drug and would like to know if Glonoium can help me accomplish this?

    I live in the 21921 zip code an would like to know if you could recommend any naturopath or pure wellness doctors who wouldn’t mind a geriatric person as a patient?

    Thank you for any help or advice you can give me.
