Get this!!! Today Tatum went to the doctor she has been super congested and all snotty, her cold has gone beyond Dr. Mom so I figured it would be best to have her seen...
After today my worst fear has been confirmed I must find a new pediatrician...Tatum has not had a flu shot not had synergis and was never even sent notification about it when the cards went out for the high risk kids....OK so mistakes happen I can over look that...
Not this one Pim took Tate to the Dr. for me and called Me when they left. Dr. Roseman From Children's Pediatricians and Associates sent them home with a RX for Zyrtec!!!! Funny if you Google Zyrtec this is the first thing it says:
Avoid Zyrtec if you have severe high blood pressure, severe heart disease, high pressure in the eye, glaucoma, or difficulty urinating. Zyrtec is not to be combined with any drug classified as an MAO inhibitor. This would include antidepressants such as Nardil and Parnate.
Use Zyrtec sparingly in cases of high blood pressure or heart disease. Be very cautious, too if you have diabetes, or a tendency to increased pressure in the eyes, glaucoma, or using Zyrtec with overactive thyroid gland, or an enlarged prostate gland. Patients with kidney or liver problems should make sure your doctor is aware of it. The dosage of Zyrtec may have to be reduced.
I do not think I'll be giving this to Tatum and I am also thinking that it is the last straw...Anyone know a good pediatrician....What a pain!!!! Thank god Pim did not just fill it and give it to her.
Do you think I am over reacting???
Oh yeah Happy Thanksgiving all :)
