Can I talk to a doctor on Maple about my mood changes?
Yes, absolutely. In most cases, a Maple doctor can diagnose mood changes online by asking about your symptoms and observing your condition. Once you describe your symptoms to the doctor, they’ll be able to diagnose, prescribe appropriate medication, and recommend an appropriate course of treatment. If the doctor suspects you have a more serious problem, they may suggest for you to go to a clinic for a thorough physical examination.
Can I get a prescription on Maple?
Yes, our physicians can prescribe medications online during your consultation. Once you accept a prescription, you’ll have the option to pick it up from any pharmacy or we’ll deliver it right to your door at no additional cost.

What are mood changes?
Mood changes (or mood swings) are rapid changes in a person’s mood. Mood changes are usually more common for people with bipolar disorder, severe depression, pregnant women, and those going through hormonal changes.
Changes in mood are quite normal for everyone, but it’s important to find a clear distinction from what’s normal and what’s a health concern. If these changes occur for multiple days or longer, it may signify a more severe issue. Alternatively, if the mood changes cause severe depression or suicidal thoughts, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.
How can I treat my mood changes?
You can manage or treat your mood swings through a combination of both mental health therapy and medication. Attending regular psychotherapy sessions may help reduce your mood swings symptoms and help you learn strategies to manage your mood swings on a regular basis. Additionally, doctors may recommend or prescribe medications to treat mood changes, such as antidepressants and antipsychotic medications.

Saves a lot of time compared to sitting in a doctor's office!
Legitimate and just as described, with fabulous doctors. Totally fills the late-night worry gap!
Not having to endure a long wait at a walk in clinic is fabulous. Especially since I have twin pre-schoolers to contend with.
The service is so quick and professional and saves hours spent in a walk-in-clinic. This is a game changer for busy moms and I recommend it to everyone!
Instead of my husband having to drag both kids to the hospital or walk in alone he was able to see a doctor right away and get a prescription faxed to our local pharmacy.
Our family has used this service twice so far and it has been amazing. Both doctors were friendly, compassionate and you never feel rushed.
Was concerned I wouldn’t be able to see a doctor without an appointment. I installed the Maple app, spoke to a doctor and had my prescription in under 30 min.
I used Maple for the first time today. It was quick and easy, took less than ten minutes including connecting time and the doctor was professional and friendly.
LOVE This service. Not only do you have a doctor within seconds but they are professional and knowledgable.
Absolutely blown away. It was SO easy to use. No wait time getting connected with a doctor. Getting the prescription faxed to the pharmacy made it a seamless process.
