medications that PWP should never take, medications that a doctor ought never give to a PWP. Whenever I see a new physician or medical professional of any kind, I give her/him a copy of this list, explain what the list is and ask that person to put it in my medical records. My question is: why do doctors ignore this list when prescribing medications for me? Example: I saw a new doctor this morning, gave her a copy of this list of medications "never to be taken by PWP," along with the list of my regular medications that I take everyday and a list of my past surgeries. Later in the morning, at the pharmacy I use, I decided to be certain that the doctor didn't give me a script for a medication I, a PWP, should never take. Sure enough one of the scripts was for a medication on the "never take" list. I did not get the prescription filled and will call the doctor in the morning about what happened.
Why don't people understand that PD is a serious disase? Just because I happen to "look" healthy, doesn't mean I shouldn't be taken seriously!!!!
Thanks for letting me vent! I feel better, but will still speak with the doctor in the morning.
