gizmo Posted December 24, 2009 Share Posted December 24, 2009 I was reading an article about Brittany Murphy's death - http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,581022,00.html and it was talking about all the mental medications she allegedly had in her house at the time of her death. The article talked about polypharmacy and interacting medications. It just made me wonder if anyone else worries about getting prescriptions from multiple doctors... I mean, you have your pdoc, and then you have your GP... but then you may have a specialist you go to. And goodness knows I've found out how unknowledgeable the GP and the specialist may be about mental meds and the interactions they have with traditional meds. And even though you tell each doctor the meds you take, they can (and do) still prescribe you a drug that might have a negative interaction with meds you are already on. So has anyone else thought about an overmedicated situation? And what do you do about it? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
