DO YOU FEEL YOU "DOCTORS" ARE MONITORING "YOUR" MED INTERACTIONS AS CLOSELY AS THEY SHOULD ?*

TriggerPoint

I HATE Being Dependent On Meds !* I Read ALL About Them Too. Side Effects & The Whole Nine Yards. These Are The One's Right Now:

Xanax Oral, celecoxib Oral, tizanidine Oral, omeprazole Oral, Paxil Oral, Hyzaar Oral, bisoprolol fumarate Oral, & nifedipine Oral .

What Do They ALL Have In Common ?

Tiredness, Weakness, Loss Of Energy, Sinus Problems, Sex Drive [ gone ] Ect...Ect....

I Wondered Many Times If ALL Of The Meds Are Causing My Get Up & Go, To Be Gone & Went !* And MOST Of ALL Of Them Just Can't Be Stopped. It's Dangerous ! PLUS The Interactions Of These Meds Must Be "Closely Monitored" By A Doctor Because Of The Possibility Of Liver & Kidney Damage ! Outa ALL These Docs I've Ben Seeing Over The Past Year ? NOBODY Is Closely Monitoring ANYTHING !* Why Does That Bother Me ?

Well, When I Cared For My Mother Before She Passed Over, She Was On ALLOT Of Meds That "Required The SAME Monitoring". She Was In Rehab For Falling & They Called Me & Told Me They Had To Take Her To The Hospital For Pneumonia. I Was Told That What Would Take Her Out One Day Would Be Her Lungs. Well ? Two Days Later They Called & Said The Pneumonia Had Cleared Up !* But They Wanted Her To Stay A Few More Days. TWO Days Later ? My Mom Had Died From What ? KIDNEY FAILURE !*

SOMETIMES I THINK MANY DOCTORS GET SO BUSY THEY NEGLECT SOME VERY IMPORTANT THINGS !* LIKE KEEPING UP WITH MED INTERACTIONS !*

That sure is a lot of meds.How long have you been with this Dr?any improvement since you been seeing him?

Tell Me About It & I Just Turned 61 ? That's 2 Docs & 4 "Specialists" w/ 2 "Specialists" To Go. And The Thing Is ? Everything Comes Back. The Tests, Scans, MRI's ECT... And All So Far With NO Major Issues !* [ other than my anxiety disorder from ptsd ] But I've Been Treated For That For 27 Years After The Explosion. Just Look, 3 Are BP Pills. Have Done & Checked Everything Cardio & Even Had The Kidneys Looked At & ALL Seems To Be Great According To Them ! Asked Him, " Then Why Do I Have This HB Then & Need 3 Different BP Meds ? The Doc Shrugs His Shoulders And Says, " So You Don't Have A Stroke". WHAT ?* My XANAX Is The Best BP Med I Have. It Brings It & My Heart Rate & BP Down When The BP Meds Aren't Working...Go Figure....

OH ! MERRY CHRISTMAS !*

I'm not in the best condition after what I went and am still going through to be doing much of anything anymore. Hard to even concentrate to type this. I don't know if you're able to see the few replies I left for a couple others but it will help explain some. Drs. dont care!

I HATE being on meds too. I wish I wasn't on 2 anti-depressants now, but the "Medicine Man" insists upon it. I am going to try to get him to Lower my dosage I feel like I am in hell
