Allopurinal 300mg, simvastatain 20mg, atenolol 50 mg, amlodipine 10mg,triamterene 75mg, The over the counter pills I take are calcium & vitamin D3, and one glucosimine daily1200mg.

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

No allergic reactions to any of the meds I take & I taken them for several years.

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

Not really. The meds I currently take are for principally for high blood pressure and my blood pressure is currently around 120/65. Have no allergy problems.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
