Big Names, Little Pills

Edgar's picture
I'm not proud of this but I take 20 pills per day to stay alive, which goes a long way in explaining why my writing may appear loopy. Every time I go to a different specialist they ask me what drugs I'm taking, which would be no problem if the drugs had simple names. But no, the drug companies want to make it difficult so the docs write prescriptions in handwriting you can't read, for drugs none of us can spell. Or pronounce. They aren't even words.
That could be a deadly combination and you could end up with an 88 year old lady taking Viagra instead of her blood pressure medicine.
