Instructions on Getting Started page
I have just had a misunderstanding with a good friend / doctor's PA.
Having been asked this morning to put together a primary school type guide to the drug schedule of the Wheldon protocol / regeme for a patient that is already taking all the bacterostatics, I have had to read through a pile of exasperating texts. The prescribing doctor has said that I was wrong. A screenshot of a paragraph of the Getting Started page showing 100 mg of doxycycline to be taken each day. They failed to read on to where it later says to take 2 x 100 mg of doxycycline. It isn't obviously clear to those that don't know what they're doing or health professionals that don't have basic comprehension ability what to do. This really could be re-written so that it cannot be mistaken ... even by health professionals.
I think that the patient will now given a write-up containing the wrong information. I shall ring this patient and give my input later on. But, as you can imagine, I am not a doctor and telling someone that I am right and the prescribing doctor is wrong can sound pretty arrogant.
This patient is finally about to pulse. This patient does not use the Internet.
Anyway, what I am suggesting is that the getting started page be ammended to initially show what the full dose of doxycycline is and then to state that patients are to start at HALF DOSE of 100 mg per day.
Right, I am going to take a blood pressure reading and perhaps a few Vallium.
