When your doctor gives you a prescription you assume he knows you since he has been your doctor for years. You should trust your doctor and do what he instructs you do. If you can’t trust your lawyer and your doctor who can you trust?

The pharmacist! When your doctor prescribes your medicine you automatically assume taking it will make you feel better. What’s going on when it doesn’t? Would you believe it could be something you ate or drank?

Some foods have direct effects on medicine. Something as simple as a glass of grapefruit juice or milk could affect your medicine in a negative way.  Most pharmacists can tell you how what foods, drinks, or other medicines will mix with your new prescription. Be sure to ask them.
