Just a slight cough, non-productive, involuntary
Why so many medications especially when some have major drug interactions when combined? Not to mention, I'm still having trouble keeping my blood pressure normal and my heart rate also.
My husband was given all these drugs, some two or three times each, within 25 total hours . He went to the hospital for pnemonia.. which was wrong not the case... he was in no way an emergency situation untill over zealous doctors over medicated him and he died.
