Pip telephone assessment
My wife had her assessment today and I did it for her with her permission. It all seemed to go ok except for one thing that has got me thinking. He asked about her medication at the start and then at the end of the assessment he said oh, can I just ask something about medication again....he said the thing that confuses him is my wife's side effects seems a lot for the dosage she is on. Shes on venaflaxine 3x 37.5mg a day and he seemed to think this was low?! I feel this was very random and a bit of a trick question maybe? Has anyone got any thoughts? Or been asked something similar?
