FML - The follow-up
for_fs_sake Say more :
I called the hospital this morning and was informed by the duty nurse that yes, I definitely should have been told not to drink on the new meds. When I asked why the doc didn't mention it, she replied that "the doctor has been very busy as she's now taken on a management position and she must have forgotten". Fabulous! Happily, my husband's very understanding, and the new guy thinks it's hilaaaaaaaaaaaarious. So right now, I guess it's the lack of shoes and lack of dignity that are the real problems. And yes - I've heard I was a BLAST to drink with last night, until the whole shrub-shoe-booty-text debacle. God, I'm a moron.

You're British, so he's angry and you're "pissed." What are your new meds? I want to hand them out at the local bar, because you sound like tons of fun. Even with moderate success, I could get some free shoes.

Yikes. If you have an HR department (or anyone in an equivalent position), you might want to explain the situation to them before your new employee does. And if you haven't called your doctor yet to report what happened in case it wasn't just due to the drinking, you might do that, too.

Since when does marriage turn off the attractive switch in someone? It's perfectly okay to think someone other than your partner is attractive or even feel a slight attraction towards that person. As long as it doesn't affect your feelings toward your spouse and you don't act on it, you're okay.

I really hope you're husband is understanding. It's time to call your doctor back. I've been on plenty of psych medications, and some just really mess you up, so I understand how hard it can be. Good luck, OP.

While I agree with you, it's part of the doctors job description to help you choose the right medication and discuss side effects with you, possible lifestyle changes, etc. Not you throw pills at you and hope they work out.

And OP confirms: "I called the hospital this morning and was informed by the duty nurse that yes, I definitely should have been told not to drink on the new meds.

Also, almost all medications aren't supposed to be mixed with alcohol, but that doesn't mean it's gonna make you do crazy things while drunk. Well... Crazier things than you normally would anyway. My friend takes some meds she's technically not supposed to mix with alcohol, yet she's perfectly okay if she does.

Actually, its not on the doctor at all. I have worked at a pharmacy before, and it is the responsibility of the pharmacist to counsel patients on any new prescriptions. OP's pharmacist sucks (and actually broke the law).

Apparently it is; "prescription" gives you permission to take a given medicine/treatment, and the dosage. I think you mean side effects/things to avoid while on the medication.

Hmmm, her marriage is now having problems, she could possibly get slapped with a sexual harassment suit or lose her job, and she lost her shoes. Sounds like a GREAT night to me. >_>
