Sort it out

Based on our own experiences, this article is spot on but it raises an interesting dilemma. When do you refuse drugs when they are prescribed for you and who are you, an 'unqualified person,' able to make such a decision?
There's no question that I walk away from the chemist once a month with a carrier bag full of medicines, but surely I have to trust my doctor to be making sensible decisions.

GP's can't do right for doing wrong these days. If they refuse medication they get aggro from patients and if they give what the patient expects they invite criticism for over-prescribing.
