other people have it, its a bias. Youre like the vegan bursting into the butcher shop to declare that you dont want to buy meat. I dont want to take any medicines, a patient would declare. She might or might not mention the rare and usually tolerable side effects you might expect. Some thinking might be useful to either confirm it as a belief you want to live by, or discard it to the cognitive ash heap. Of course balancing these issues takes time and thought. Some are annoying but not dangerous. Been in tamsulosin since but recently changed to Cialis at 5mg to help with the frequent urination and ED which I think was also caused by the Lexapro. Ive heard some version of this aversion to medications hundreds of times. Its a free country.
Problem list of stroke patients as identified in the problem
Should we just stop them all? But if a bias threatens to worsen your health, it deserves a little attention. In a retrospective study problem orientated physiotherapy records were examined on 156 consecutive stroke patients admitted to medical wards and referred to the physiotherapy department. Id like to be on the fewest medications as possible, a patient with diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure would announce. All physicians hear some form of this opinion very frequently. Even more frequently, patients dont state this view outright but rely on it to completely subvert their doctors plans. I dont like taking medicines. I diagnose and treat medical problems, usually with medications. Thats fine, I would reassure my interlocutor.
