    Do you need to be medically trained to point someone in the direction of requesting a medical review?

    Suggestions and ideas are what it says on the tin, nobody has offered the op a prescription just offered support and letting him know their experiences... In my post regarding one medication if you care to look back I refrained from naming others after a request from the op.

    A lot of patients suffer on medication because they don't realize there maybe alternatives, a lot don't even think to mention it to their doctors, that's why requesting a medication review is the correct advise and yes I do know what I'm talking about......Some people just view a GP receptionist as a busybody but in reality we learn a lot through the years.

    Yes advice is fine and part of forum, Im just suggesting the OP ignore it because its unqualified.

    Hi there, you mention that you see an ENT specialist. What treatment are they offering you?? I've had problems with sinuses previously and know there are treatments for these and nasal polyps. Why are they not offering you any treatments? You need to be proactive and push to make them understand how badly these are affecting your life. Good luck.


    All I'm currently taking is Budesonide nasal rinses. Just had my 4th or 5th surgery. Other than that, that's all I'm prescribed!
