Hi, I am having some problems with my asthma. This is a bad time of year for me. I have to work in the morning and don't want to spend the night at the hospital or miss work tomorrow. You don't not give out perscriptions , correct.

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Penicillin. I usually use pro air but am out. I have my maitenance inhaler. I use steriods [pills] this time of year.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have shingles in my eye right now. I have suffered with those for 4-5 years i also have fibromyalgia.
