yikes! sounds like some OCD in there as well if he's so obsessed with checking "possible" side effects...
what about you giving him his meds at specific times in the proper doses (like a nurse at the hospital) so a) you know he's taking them and b)he's not mixing where he shouldn't be. Then keep them under lock and key???
(i've hid my husbands ativan in our car so that he can't abuse the medication and i'm the only one with the key and i sleep with my purse in my drawer beside me with a plastic bad wrapped around it so that if "someone" tries to take my purse out of my drawer then i'll wake up - sounds drastic i know but when it comes to bp, sorry, i don't wanna take any chances.)
Hey other newbie wife;
My husband plays around with his meds too. He refuses to let me me administer his meds also. I was a nurse and it makes me really angry when we have the horrible results of missed or too much med. when it is so easy to prevent the problem. But, we are dealing with people with a distorted thought process. I don't have an answer, just understanding. Hope he is able to accept diagnosis eventually.
