Third leading cause of death in the US

I was listening to the radio few months ago when I learned that medical errors  are now the third leading cause of death in the US.

In 2014, Gary was complaining about his foot. His primary doctor in Washington DC suspected that it’s a gouty arthritis. He prescribed Indomethacin and Colchicine. These medications are so nasty because they give him diarrhea. But he had no choice because it is what his doctor prescribed. When he went though to another specialist few months later, this new specialist said that the said medications are fatal and there are other options aside from those mentioned medications. Really?

The moral of the story: Do some research first and ask questions to your doctor before taking any medications. You don’t want medical error to be the cause of your own passing. Seriously.
