    WOW!

    My Witch Doctor changed my blood pressure medication and I have been like really stoned for three days; so stoned in fact that I did not realise it!

    Also have been running around with BP readings like 70/40 which readings are enough to sustain life but that's about it!

    I got up this morn, headed for a cup of coffee and a smoke but walked right into the doorjamb and went straight DOWN!

    Called the Dr who told me to immediately shoot myself up with my anti-bee/wasp sting kit to get rolling again and to be waiting at his office door when he got there at 7;30 am, which I did but driving the 2 miles was interesting!

    Turns out that I had been given about twice the dosage of the med that I really needed due to an error at the pharmacy!

    SHIT!

    Witch Doctor furious and is raising Hell with the place! Watch your meds, people and read the labels to make sure that you are getting the right stuff!

    Not sure, but you may have a lawsuit there.

    Yeah, prolly but lawsuits take years so I might just write them a nasty letter and they will send me a couple of grand to get me to go away!

    If the bottle is marked as one dosage and you got another, I'd consult a lawyer. He could at least send a letter to them to get their attention.

    Yeah, I'm going to have my legal advisor shoot off a real barn-burner!

    LOL!

    Oh, no, they gave me the wrong shit entirely which resulted in double-dosing!

    WOO HOO!

    Never a bad idea really.

    I'd be pissed if it happened to me, esp if I hurt myself as a result.

    I agree, I think you should take legal action. What if they do it again and some little girl or someone's granny dies? What if YOU had died from it?? They need a wake up call, and maybe even need to have the pharmacy tech fired. If anything, sue them enough to get free prescriptions for the rest of your life :D

    Glad that you are ok uptown. Doctors are always making fuck ups, but most of hold them with such high esteem that we never question diagnosis or prescription.(not to say that you dont, just speaking generally)

    Actually, it was the fault of the pharmacy, which is a big chain and the shit is hitting the fan!

    The Doc and me have been friends for like 30 years!

    He gets all wound up about some stupid chain store trying to kill one of his patients!

    Thanks for your kind comments and advice!

    Uptown.

    P.S.

    I be fine now!
