I agree with this. I don't like to take medication unless I really need it. I get some pretty bad headaches at times, but I try to wait them out or take the lowest dose of Excedrin or go lie down, if possible. When it comes to prescription drugs, I ask a lot of questions. I also ask if there's any other option besides medicine or if lesser meds will work. My doc now is cool that way though. She knows how I am, so she tries to work with me. She'll say, "yeah, this time you need to take it," or "We can probably figure something out without the pills." I appreciate her for that.
