Stand Up for your self

Don't let them do that to you. Stand up and give it back and chance your pharmacists to someone else. Most will mail the meds to you.Of course check and make sure. You might be able to do it over the phone.

Someone please tell me about "shots."

Someone please tell me about "shots."

I've gotten steroid injections at specific target.
I've gotten nonsteroid injections for general area.
Not supposed to come back for 3 months. I've always been ready to return at 2 months.
