DEAR ABBY: You recently said that older people should not be ashamed'to ask their doctors questions about medications prescribed for them. They should know how much to take, how often to use it. what the side effects are, etc.
I wonder why the instructions that come with some medications are written in language that nobody can understand. For example, my doctor prescribed a nasal spray. The only thing I could understand wus, “Shake well before using.” Here i* a sample of what else came with my medication and instructions:
“Beclomethasone 17, 21 ^propionate is a diester of beclomethasone, a synthetic halogenated corticosteroid. Animal studies show that beclomethasone dipropionate has potent glucocorticoid and weak nun-eralocorticoid activity.
“The effects of beclomethasone dipropionate on hypothalaniic-uitu-itary-adrenal (HPA) function have been evaluated in adult volunteers by other routes of administration Studies with beclomethasone dipropionate by the intranasal route may demonstrate that there is more or that there is less absorption by this route of administration. There was no suppression of early morning plasma cortisol concentrations when beclomethasone dipropionate was administered in a dose of 1,000 meg day for one month as an oral aerosol or for three days by intramuscular injection.”
Abby, there is much more that I cannot understand, but this should give you a general idea of what I mean.
JOHN W EGGERS, SAN DIEGO
DEAK MK. EGGERS: I know exactly what you mean. Such gobbledygook is intended to confuse a person not schooled in Latin.
Don’t be embarrassed. Ask your doctor for instructions that you can understand. And if there are any questions in your mind
— ask for clarification.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 25-year-old woman who happens to have a very' fair complexion. I do not tan very' easily. My dermatologist just removed three precancerous growths from my anus and advised me to wear sunscreen w hen I plan to go out in the sun.
I get very irritated with people w ho tell me I would look a lot (letter if I got a little tan. Can you suggest a snappv comeback for these clods?
SUN-SHY IN GEORGIA DEAK SUN-SHY: Snappy comeback? You need no snappier comeback than the truth. Try this: “My dermatologist just removed three precancerous growths from my arms.”
Then notice how quiet it gets ... followed by a. “Gee, I’m sorry. I didn’t know”... or words to that effect.
DEAR ABBY: Knowing that you are an animal lover. I am writing with the hope that this will reach many zoo visitors.
Recently, a monkey in our zoo died because she was fed something poisonous by a visitor. There are signs on all of our animal cuges requesting “DO NOT FEED THE ANIMALS.” but some visitors pay no attention to them.
Abby, it is heartbreaking when. in spite of all our training and care, we cannot prevent a death because some well-meaning visitor ignores our "No Feeding" signs Please print this as a reminder.
