not knowing about medications they prescribe? Especially for the elderly who have a hard time anyway. They feel rushed by the doctors and come out of the office confused and worried about the meds they take? I created a petition I hope you will sign online.
The title is "EDUCATE BEFORE YOU MEDICATE"
I have just visited GoPetition and found the following page very interesting:
I appreciate your support with this petition.
I somewhat agree with you but it is also the responsibility of the patient too. Elderly patients are the exception as the doctor has to be specific and compassionate. For the rest of us, if we don't ask the doctor then don't expect to have all the answer's when you leave. There are the odd turkey's in the group but I believe that most doctors are good people who truly do want to help patients. I think I may be on the wrong side on this one but it is just how I see it... Thanks... Dave
Way to go Christine - I support anything that helps the elderly. They need just a little more support and care from Doctors especially when it comes to medications they are prescribed. They feel stressed to begin with when seeing a Doctor and need to be treated with calmness and assuredness.
Yea the doctors only perscribe certain things,not even controlled they just want to push enough units so they get to go to a "Conference"more like a nice vacation.And ive had doctors mix drugs they shoudnt but they do for lack of knowledge i guess.Even drugs I know know they want to mix and im no md it blows my mind.Ill check out the petition right now...
