Alert Number 27

The Dangers of Overmedication

Date: June 24, 2004

An Update on "Harvey"

Harvey, our hypothetical patient and Round Headed Kid, is experiencing the benefits of a surprisingly deep remission after going through the "RHK Protocol" three months ago. He is on a maintenance regimen of prescription medicines, supplements and vigorous exercise, a program that he and Serena negotiated with "Doc" to try and keep his remission going. However, nothing is simple for our hero. In this update, Harvey and Serena find out from a blood test that it pays to be vigilant - you will learn about the dangers of drug interaction and overmedication in Remission Management for the Round-headed Kid, the next installment of our continuing case study.

Be well,

Chaya
