  • PRESIDENT'S CORNER: May 12, 2017

    Thursday, May 11, 2017

    BP Oops: OK, so last Wednesday I am getting ready for my OLLI class and starting feeling a little strange…and ended up in the ER with out-of-control BP. They kept me two days to adjust and re-configure my meds…and that’s why I wasn’t able to write a column last week! One thing I learned is that at our age, many of us take quite a few pills and it makes a lot of sense to have someone you can turn to that has intimate knowledge of pharmacology so they could review your meds and help determine things that may be interacting wrongly with other meds. Be careful, folks!
