Never decide on your own to stop taking prescribed medication. This could have serious consequences. It could even be fatal.
But do take a good close look at your medications with your doctor. You may be able to save money and improve your care in the bargain. Maybe you’ve been prescribed redundant medications by several doctors, or were given a temporary prescription that you don’t need to take any more.
So bring your primary doctor a list of all your drugs and supplements, or better yet, bring them all into the office in a bag. Then ask if any can be discontinued … or if there are cheaper but effective alternatives... or if it’s safe to split your pills.
