I just started seeing a rheumatologist for my ankylosing spondylitis. She suggested a long term NSAID rather than just taking ibuprofen as I had been doing. She prescribed two options: diclofenac, which I tried, and Indomethacin, which I have not yet tried. I have questions about the new drug before I start it but my rheumatologist won't be able to respond for about a month. Should I see my family doctor or a pharmacist with questions about the new meds? Are either likely to be really familiar with a random medication?

I know that when medicine expires or is no longer needed, the best way to dispose of it is to take it to a local pharmacy with a disposal program and hand it off to them to take care of it.
But that gets me to wondering - then what? [more inside]

The new girlfriend seems to be highly allergic to everything (pollen, pets, smoke, etc). She hasn't seen an allergist and takes virtually every OTC product already with poor results. Is there some remedy I can entice her with to see an allergist? What else can be done?
