Should I Mention My Fear About A Medication With My New Doctor?

Q: I read an article about Renin and the drugs that raise your blood pressure in certain people. I am one of those people. I have a new doctor, do you think I can mention this to her? I find that most doctors tell you and I quote “I am the doctor and you are the patient” which means to me to be quiet and just do what I tell you to do.

A: You should always discuss your concerns with your doctor.  Don’t be intimidated.  It is your body and your health that is at risk.  You need to feel comfortable with your care plan.  If you and your doctor are unable to communicate effectively, find a different provider.  You are paying for medical advice and deserve to get it.
