Medications

I AM NOT A DOCTOR!!!

Never change your medications without consulting your doctors and pharmacists. There are even supplements and vitamins, all natural ones, that can react poorly with prescription medications. ALWAYS talk to a professional before changing any portion of your medical care.


Because I really don’t want anyone changing medications without consulting doctors, I will not be listing dosages for most of the medications (none of the pharmaceuticals will have dosages, but some of the vitamins will).
