    I’m glad you checked but what was your doctor thinking about? Didn’t check for you?

    I am heading for 70 and more and more I am querying the prescriptions my GP writes - and he is not a happy camper when I return the prescription saying I am no taking it because "..........".
    These GPs only prescribe what they know or are paid by the chemical companies to hand out ... the pharmacists know a bit more, or go straight to the website of the chemical company and read the Consumer/Patient information.
    It is our body and we have to be comfortable with what we shove into it ....

    It also pays to have your meds 'audited' by the local pharmacist as well - with a list of your 'conditions' ..... quite a few do not work well together when you get a new condition!

    I think I’ve said it before on here but you definitely need to be your own advocate
