We depend on our team of doctors a lot to get us through and find treatments that work for us. We see them regularly and ask them questions about what we can do. That is great and we should.
However, there is one team member that is often overlooked and they are a huge wealth of information. That is your Pharmacist. They have a much better handle on interactions of drugs that your doctor may not know about or if you see several, they may not realize there is an overlap.
I have also found my pharmacist to be eager to share with me things that can help supplement my treatment such as what kinds of supplements or holistic ideas that can compliment what I am doing already.
There is a great relationship with that person behind the counter. Utilize it to it's fullest. It may just be what saves your life or improves your treatments. You will never know unless you ask.
