targetting patients, the demand is such that my patients now have to
maintain a chart for the ten pils taken daily
1 ACE - small dose for prophylaxis
2 B blocker - for chest pain
3 PPI - for chest pain also because of GORD
4 Oestrogen - to "reduce fractures"
5 Baby Aspirin - to "thin the blood" (counter the oestrogen)
6 Statin - to prevent Alzheimer's
7 Vitamin C - to "ward off colds"
8 glitazone - to prevent diabetes
9 Antidepressant - in morning for MSD
10 Viagra - in night for MSD
A large dose of Enos in the night to counteract the daily gastric
