Maybe: There are some allergies that resolve as you grow older. For instance some people can get improvement in their response to certain medications as they get older, or further away from the initial exposure.

More than 2 steps: Perhaps a pharmacist can chime in, but i believe that there are multiple governing bodies that require documentation of dispensation of controlled substance, including the dea, state-level agencies (e.g. Hawaii has a narcotics enforcement division), state pharmacy boards, etc. Pharmacies may also have their own internal requirements. I doubt this can be distilled down to "two steps.". ...Read more

Phenobarbital: You would not be measuring Phenobarbital levels unless taking it for a specific condition, like seizure disorder. Your doctor titrates your dose by these levels and by side effects. Your first indicator that your level is "low" might be having a seizure -- so it's best to take your medication consistently and to check levels when your doctor feels it's time to do it. ...Read more

They do not mix with alcohol, whether beer or any other form, and the combination is very dangerous and can kill you. ...Read more
