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). All of my medications and supplements are managed by my healthcare team – various specialists manage my medications and my dietitian does all of my supplements.
