I am fed up with the medical people! All they do is play follow the leader right or wrong!
Before my stroke, I was not happy with my medications. I have had the doctors at 2 hospitals and one rehab all compound what I was unhappy about plus my new doctor. My new doctor put me on potassium to offset the diuretic effects....I''m on Vasotec which has MAJOR interactive warnings against potassium! Plus it doesn't like 3 of the other meds they have me on! That's a majority of my meds that Vasotec doesn't like. Add summer heat (none of my meds like heat) and it is no wonder I had that dizzy-sweating spell. They also gave me Zyrtec for allergies (I'm not taking it currently) which is not friendly with 3 of my meds, either!
I contacted my doctor's office after the spell and have not heard a peep out of them. All of the meds say "contact your doctor if....". Why, if they ignore you? Can't one doctor, pharmacist, nurse, or someone beside the patient pay attention to what they are doing? They give you this stuff to keep you from dying but, it seems they are trying to kill you with the treatment instead. I guess they want to make some money off your demise first.
If I didn't need someone to write a legal prescription.......I would chuck them all!
