I would personally do nothing. The patient already has serious health conditions. If its terminal, I would favor chinese herbal remedies because for one thing, they have less toxicities and thus a better quality of life for the patient.[email protected] said:What should the pharmacist do if he found out that one of his patients with serious health conditions is quitting his/her western medicine regimen for a Chinese herbal remedy?
I'd still not "do" anything. A patient relationship must be an active one with you or any provider.[email protected] said:I'm sorry. I didn't make my post clear enough. I meant to say the patient has serious health problems, but western medications can help control it. The patient quits because he doesn't believe it can help him and on top of that, he doesn't like the side effects. Would this change anything?
Well except for mine, my opinion is usually a bit more important than SDN1977. But it's cool, we've discussed it and it doesn't hinder our professional relationship anymoresdn1977 said:That's just me.......others might have equally valid & different opinions.
