Problems with Meds
      #1109 - 03/31/00 05:13 AM

Does anyone else have a problem getting their + partner to take their meds? I have done everything I know to do and so has his Doctor and he keeps skipping doses because he says they make him feel too bad. I've begged, threatened, calmly explained, everything. Any suggestions?

I think it's like alcholism or something. It's his life. NOT your life. There is nothing you can do. Ask him what he needs from you. Print out some materials about adherence and some articles about about
how effective these medications are. Tell him how much you care about it and how you'd like to do anything else you can to support him--ask what he needs from you. Then it's up to him. There is nothing else you can do.
