See another Doc: First and foremost, you have to feel comfortable with and trust your doctor. If you feel you were prescribed the wrong medication, you can ask the pharmacist for information about the drug you were prescribed, or you can change doctors and find one who can converse with you in English, provided that is your preferred language.
