    Well done, the pharmacy is and should be your first port of call for information regarding any medication reactions you may be getting.

    Hello @CARL58 Jen how is he doing today. Thoughts and prayers.

    How are you doing? 

    Looks like meds are helping.  Good idea to speak to Pharmacy about any side effects and consultation. Does help.

    Keep in touch we are here to support you.

    Take care.
