  • Sometimes. I did during my pregnancy. I do when it comes to my mental health meds. But for other things it depends. And for my son? I take my doc's recommendation along with LOTS of other input and a healthy dose of intuition. I like being very well informed.

  • I don't take parenting advice from medical doctors. If its something that is medically necessary for my life/health/well-being, then I'll listen as long as I have respect for the doctor. One example of when I didn't listen was when my doctor prescribed me prozac because I was grieving. There wasn't a pill that was going to help.

  • I take everything doctors say with a grain of salt. There are so many different theories, so many different approaches to medicine and so many practitioners of defensive medicine that I see my doctor/patient relationship as a corroboration. More like advice than anything.
