Well, it's official. I've got a cold, dammit :-(

Great, isn't it? All you folks who can take cold remedies take heart: you don't suffer nearly as much as those of us who are on heart medications. For some reason, the medicines we're prescribed react very badly (read: they could put us back in hospital at best) to cold remedies. The problem is one that I am led to believe that  pharmacists call "contraindications", which is medi-babble for "It'll do a little dance with the other meds in your system and stuff you up big time".

So, we heart patients to suffer, because no-one appears to have given any thought to those of us with colds who also happen to be on heart meds.

Would someone in the pharmaceutical business kindly fix this on the hurry-up, please?
