princesscolon, you have a right to know what medication you're receiving and to be given information about
it. Don't ever let anyone give you drugs without identifying them to you! If you don't know what they are, ask to see some information. It doesn't have to be confrontational, just "What are you going to give me?" "Oh, I never heard of that. Can you give me some information about
it? How does it work? What are its side effects?"
If your doctor won't give you the name of a drug you were given and the dosage, request your medical records and look for a new doctor. The days when we just sat back and believed everything the doctor said and let him/her make all the decisions is long past.
