Couch Tomato Posted May 22, 2007 Report Share Posted May 22, 2007 I know a few of us are taking care of parents. You know, the one thing that truly bothers me is that doctors today just seems to prescribe medicine as a way to deal with everything. My mom takes so many medications I worry at how they are all mixing together. Now, without anybody talking to us at all, they took my mom off one of her medications. I googled it today only to discover that it was taken off the market because it puts patients at risk for heart attack and strokes. This one was called zelnorm. Now today, warnings are going out for avandia - that's her diabetes medication that has done a wonderful job stablizing her sugar levels. Now THAT is said to put her at a risk for heart atttacks and she's already had 3 of those. I just can't stand that we are basically out here on our own trying to figure these things out.
