store and grab any medication you want, however my doctor was in Mexico and told me I could walk into a store and purchase any prescription drug I wanted, my youngest brother, daugther, and son-in-laws are all MD's, they will not treat their own faimilies, and when we get together, we just don't talk medicine, likewise all my neighbors are MD's and that subject never comes up. One good point of advice, work with your doctor, ask him questions as to how he/she expects a medication to work and IF IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY, STOP THE MEDICATION AND CALL HIM/HER, (have to remember my daughter-in-law with the HER), my experience with varapimil was bad, heart starting skipping beats, got real dizzy, and fell down, called immediately and was told to quit taking it and come it immediately, not only that, it didn't even touch my CH's so to me, this medication is poison, but I am not about to get on a post and say don't take varapimil as it will kill you. Another thing,I have noticed about many people, and this includes myself, that the doctor is God and if he says take three pills a day or whatever until the bottle is empty, we will blindly do this regardless of the ill side-effects that we are having, not so, if things aren't right, call him/her at once, if the medication is not doing what he/she said it would, call, call, call.
