  1. Like you say, you take one pill for one thing and then another to counteract that one and so on. Barmy. When my mother was in hospital and I was sent to talk to her consultant who warned me she didn’t have much longer I asked him to take her off her medication as it was making her very confused. He did and she rallied round and lived another three years! Sometimes they prescribe too many pills and don’t follow up on the consequences. One reason why I am reluctant to take more than the occasional painkiller.

    1. There are so many stories of people stopping medication and being so much better afterwards.
      I was on Statins for years with no check-ups, and then my doctor in Norfolk found that they had seriously damaged my muscles and she stopped me taking them.
      Best wishes, Pete.

  2. I took arthritis pills for four years but my bodies ‘desire’ for the next pill eventually became the worst symptom of all. I took a chance one day stopped taking them and never went back. I feel physically a little better comparatively, and can at least think that I’m saving my liver.

    1. They always seemed to forget what they were taking them for. It used to worry me. Even my mum couldn’t remember, and I used to check her meds in my ambulance drugs book.
      Best wishes, Pete.
