What do you do when the side effects of the medication you are taking is making your life miserable. This is the case of my mother she is taking enough medication to start her own pharmacy. She has been battling with side effects for three years now and has been to the doctors and hospitals numerous times but all that happens is that her medication is altered or she is given more. At the moment she is on the following:

Glyceryl Trinitrate
Nifedipidine
Atenolol
Atorvastatin
Bendroflumethiazide
Trazodone
Zolpidem
Levothroxine
Doxazosin

The side effects that she is experiencing range from dizziness to a pulse of 48. The doctors do not seem to care.
If anyone out there can help, please she can’t go on like this.
