  • "The fewer medicines you take, the better off you'll be."

    Do you agree with the consultant's views Prof G?

    No not really; it is always a trade off between symptoms and their impact on your functioning (activities of daily living, social and occupational) and how effective they are and their side effect profile. The problem with a large number of symptoms is the fact that our treatments are not very effective. That is the challenge for ourselves and the pharmaceutical industry.

  • In my experience the medicines for treating symptoms are no use. Then you have new symptoms and you don't know if they are really new symptoms or side-effect of one of the medicines
