Can I get free samples on prescriptions?

Senior home care and medications

There are some medications that just aren't right for us. I tried three different high blood pressure medications before there was one that didn't upset my system or make me constantly dizzy. Then another time I was given additional medication that litterally 'zapped' me. Ask for 'samples' of medications to try out before buying a prescription. If our medications don't agree with our systems/us, we need to notify our senior care physician immediately to report the problems; in all probability the medications should be changed.
