    Went for my pre-op testing yesterday, and the nurse did a double take when i told her I was not taking any persrciption drugs. Is that really that unusual??:confused:

    Depending on your age, yes. If you are over 50 , it's very common to be taking BP meds, allergy.sleep meds , anti depressants ,are a common one these days.



    We are a medicated country,at least here in the US.

    depending in your medical Hx, it wouldn't be so unusual if you (not trying to sound mean) were a lot younger.

    Maybe because people who go in for whatever operation you are going in for are taking meds for it?

    In this day and age when there are medications given for every thing from minor itch to a spot of dirt on the ear it's unusual. In recent months I have had 3 people express total dismay that I don't take any prescription medications. I occasionally take a motrin and that is all for the last few years. I only know of 1 other person who doesn't have any prescription medications and he is our age as well. Maybe it has to do with the healthy starts we all got born in the early 1950s.

    I was on medication for high b.p. for a number of years then my diet and health and all changed and I got off of it. I didn't like the side effects either. I took Flomax for about 7 months then started lowering the dosage to every other day and finally got off of that. A few times over my lifetime I have had antibiotics prescribed but those are always short term regimens. No other medications that I can recall ever taking that were prescribed.

    Maybe you should have done the double take and told her again so she knew for sure.

    Well, I don't know, if she doesn't get it after ten times, then let it never be said you didn't try.

    Good for her she was doing her job, i geuss
    Cover her ass, imagine she is obliged to be positively sure.
    If you looked like you ... should ... be on meds, probably doesnt help.
    Wouldnt be uncommon for a nurse to expect everyone and there dog to be on some kind of medication huh, especially ( dare i say it) in America.

    I'm over 50 and the only prescription meds I've ever taken are antibiotics. Most of my friends are the same.

    A doctor once told me the longer you can live your life without being on daily medication the longer and healthier your life will be. I'm not on any medication.

    See, a competent nurse will have written that down on your chart, rather than asking over and over again.

    At my last eye dr. checkup the ass't was going over my medical history and I, too, got the incredulous response to not being on any meds. I guess when one is closer to 50 than 40 you're expected to be on something. Not to say that some folks do indeed need to be taking something to address a particular problem, but it does make you wonder if we're being over medicated.

    Am not on any form of drug, prescription or otherwise, just a little twisted, the way nature intended us to be. :)

    I put the 'us' in as reference to myself having a dual personality (i don't), not needing prescription drugs. (humour). I understand subgirrl, some need to take medication for whatever health reasons. I would be without good friends if they were not available. Continue to take good care of yourself, Ok.
