Junior Doctor?: You have to tell us what you mean by junior doctor.There are doctors in training who work under supervision of attending physicians and there are junior doctors who have finished their training and are affiliated with a senior doc in either case you are safe as long as your primary doctor or cardiologist is aware of it discuss with your doc at next visit why your med was changed, always a reason.
