August 9, 2011–get the meds right

Brief update:  Her cardiologist had prescribed a new medication for acid reflux rather than increasing the dosage of the product that she was taking.  About 2/3 of the meds and supplements she takes list diarrhea as a possible side effect, and the new one “pushed her over the top.”  GP put her back on the old one and took her off a couple of nice-but-not-necessary supplements.

For now, things are much better.  It is hard to prescribe for the elderly!
