On Drugs…

Having lived the first few years of my life in a hospital and having a GP for at father, I have always been dismayed by the plain randomness of the attitude in society towards drugs (and to me aspirin counts as a drug). Living in this environment I have always had a healthy appreciation for only taking drugs when really necessary and have seen first hand some of the side effects of various drugs (such as Thalidomide). This site probably describes better than I can what I think the approach to drugs should be: The drug classification system in the UK is not “fit for purpose” and should be scrapped, scientists have said.

At the moment I am taking Aspirin and Telmisartan for high blood pressure and Simvastatin to control my hypercholesterolemia.
