I found myself in a similar situation on two occassions. My doctor wanted to start me on a very expensive drug. Researching the new drug, as I always
do, really scared me. I matched about five contraindications, including #1 - high blood pressure. The pharmacist was pretty shocked to see this prescription and strongly advised against taking the drug. This did not stop my doctor from trying again with another script not long after. At the pharmacy, another pharmacist informed me that this drug would make me very sick. Go figure.
Everyone should research the drugs they are prescribed. It is necessary. I am glad you've done your homework!!!
You should know exactly what you're putting into your body and what it's going to do to you. I think many people take drugs they don't really need. You can always say NO. Get another opinion. Talk to your pharmacist, if in doubt.
