How awful for your poor hubby, what a worry for you, so much medication, hope they have sorted it out.

That sounds horrendous Marmarlade, what a horrible worry for you, and it must make you worried about his ongoing care.
Glad you got a kiss though.

It sounds unbelievable that a GP can overdose a patient on drugs! Why did he have to change an already prescribed routine anyway? Hope your OH is improving. Best wishes.
