    I don't remember ever seeing such a sign at any doctor's office, and I have lived in many cities and states over the years.

    Is there a code for this diagnosis.

A couple days ago I went to the Dr. and got prescribed Cipro. I have never had an adverse reaction to any drug I have ever taken but this one I experienced many of the side effects. Anxiousness, paranoia, stiff joints, dizziness, the list goes on. I would in no way carry while under the influence of that stuff cause I did not feel my self. It made me think about how many people may be prescribed this stuff and not thinking about how it is actually affecting them. Even more so in a Dr.s office where sick people congregate. I guess I also just wanted to give a heads up if you get prescribed Cipro to be aware of its side effects.
    I was thinking some more about these comments and the risk we all have of some kind of reaction to things we come into contact with whether it's environmental, medical etc...

    We all take calculated risks daily and in most case it'sso common place we don't even consider it to be a risk. Adverse reactions to medications happen and so do adverse reaction to the environment but I would not chnage what normally do unless I expect that adverse reaction and even then it would depend on the situation. Case-in-point, one day you may not be allergic to a bee sting and then the next you are and you find out while you are driving day the round in your auto, gun in tow and you get a bee/wasp sting and you go into anaphalactic shock. Does this we should never drive? Never leave the house, nope we take calculated risk.

    Now if you know you have an allergy you take precautions such as tell the doc me and cipro don't get along, or you carry a shot of adrenaline or bee sting kit. As humans our allergies can/do change periodically so you never know. So, it's my opinion if you normally carry and then you had this one adverse reaction I would let change my security posture I'd just recalculate my calculated risk taking. e.g. I wouldn't be "under the influence" of cipro again.

    None of my doctors prohibit guns, and I carry most every time I visit. Course, one is an avid hunter and the other retired military.

    Good call. Did he have an outline of it on is back pocket like a can of skoal?
    Reminds me of the truck driver probs of having the wallet in the same back pocket all the time. Forgot what it was called.

    I see it all the time in guys who have a big thick wallet but this was my first case due to a kel-tec. He did in fact have significant wear on his back pocket where the kel-tec usually sat. It was even starting to make a whole. I guess he carried all the time.

    I had a bad cold and congestion in my chest and went to the DR.
    Talked to the doc took some chest x-rays then was told to drop em so I could get a shot in each hip. I paused told the nurse don't be alarmed
    pulled my .45 out of my crossbreed with two fingers and set it on the exam table. The only comment made was, the nurse telling me her son would think I'm cool. I commented back to teach him the rules about gun safety if he's that interested in guns.

    A good doctor will explain the possible side effects of any medication they prescribe. It is up to the patient and their common sense to wait until they are home, before taking a new medication while carrying.
    A few months back I had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic, and the doc put me on Prednisone. No way I'd take that stuff an carry at the same time. Two days through the treatment, I couldn't handle the side effects, and quit taking it. I'd rather deal with some burning, itching rash than the awful effects of Prednisone.

    My Primary Care Physician told me that a lot of his patients are carry when they are in his office, and he does not have a problem with it. He believes in the right to bear arms!
