HI

Is your BF being treated by only one doctor, or by several? Do they now which drugs he is taking before adding new medication to his script?- Remember that he should always inform them if he is taking other medication. There is repetition in some of the drugs he is taking, and he may want to ask ONE doctor to review his treatment.

Best of luck!
