Yes one has to be careful, most drugs have a side effects as you know.  Of course one is unlucky to be affected. I guess it is better to stick to one doctor if possible. Although here if one wants to book the same doctor it takes about one month and then the time allowed is at most twenty minutes. I know it is a worry for you.

Oh heck no!

Sorry, but I just have to chime in Kabu. That person who touched your husband was wrong. He could be seen as taking advantage of an elderly person. I hope you call his doctor ASAP and let him know about what happened and Wiley's response. You have recourse when people act stupid and give medical advice, etc.

Fingers crossed for you both. Good thing you are a tigeress! Go get em.

I'm always wary of anyone doing a carotid rub on anyone, especially anyone 'of a certain age;' that is anyone over 45. You can easily kick in a vagal response that is not good for you, including syncope and cardiac issues. Keep his feet slightly elevated and make him comfy and know that I have him in my thoughts and prayers.

if that chiropractor is prescribing anything - anything at all - it might

be a good idea to go on Web MD online and check for side effects - and look for cautions about food or other consumables that might impact his prescriptions. I know you know this, Dear Kabu - and no doubt have all that stuff memorized. Weird as it is, I haven't been able to drink grapefruit juice or eat grapefruit because of some interaction with one of the regular items I take - don't even remember which one is the problem, it's been so many years.  Hope you two have a better day of it today.

I ditto TAPS, dear sweet lady Kabu. Hugs and prayers for you and Wiley. Maybe you should call the doctor, the MD. So sorry to hear this. Hope he feels better and I'm glad you are there for him.

So sorry to read of his problems, discomforts, distress and all of these things combined.  I'm sure you are right as rain, and that the things he needs least of all are chiropractic sessions and more things to be concerned about.  So glad he has you to stand up for him (and to lie beside him).
