Don't hesitate to ask any question that is bothering you. Don't hesitate to ask why he/she is chosing a given course of treatment. A good doc is there to help educate you as well as treat the body. Best wishes.
Both of my Dr.s are aware of the effects and the medications i'm on. (I always call if something is amiss). Getting my GP to call my pain doc is like pulling teeth, so I do it myself for both. Because I'm a pain clinic client, I have to sign a contract yearly stating that I won't take any perscription drug from another Dr. regardless of circumstance unless the perscribing Dr. calls first. My GP was not thrilled will having to take the time to call my pain doc before I would except the muscle relaxant.
The general concensis was to ask the therapist. He is currently healing from donating one of his kidneys to his sister. i'll ask him when he gets back.
Thanks, both of you for responding.
