Because of my health, I am on a variety of medications. I do not go into the details with people other than my closest friend.... and my daughter.
One thing I have learned over the years is... always.. ALWAYS consult with your pharmasist when you are taking any prescribed meds to see if it will react with any over the counter meds you might be considering taking for relief from a cold, flu or sleeplessness. These medications relatively harmless on their own, combined with prescription meds can cause, you to stop breathing, or to slip into a coma or death.
So, never assume they are safe just because you got them off the shelf. If you take any sort of prescribed med, talk to your pharmasist.
