Cartside has tagged me. I’ve been slightly tardy in responding but here goes.
1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 (or more) pages.
Well, there is a bookcase the other side of the room with a multitude of books, fiction, non-fiction, reference, all-sorts but the book nearest to me is ‘Mims, the Prescribing Reference for General Practice’. Scintillating reading! At the moment I’m reading ‘Wicked Beauty’ by Susan Lewis for relaxation. An easy book to read, slightly racy but a book you can pick up, read a few pages and not be completely lost story-wise.
2. Open the book to page 123 and find the 5th sentence.
Reduce dose of levodopa usually by 30% in patients taking more than 600mg levodopa daily, or who have moderate to severe dyskinesias at start of treatment.
3. Post the next three sentences.
Child not applicable. Dopaminergics. Amantadine. ( I can sense everyone rushing out to purchase this entertaining tome. You will be out of luck. Shame! I get it via hand-me-downs from the G.P’s I work with).
4. Tag 5 people.
Firstly, someone I know reads a great deal, Mumof4. Hmmm, next comes a man who will, if he reads this and knows he’s been tagged, doubtless give me some iambic pentameter, Punctuation. Nicola, you’re next, there are some excellent Canadian authors, perhaps you will share one with me. Here comes a man who has worked with books so should have lots to hand, Flighty. Finally, I’m going to fly in the face of reason and see if NHS Blogdoc has alerts when someone links to him and then if he looks to see what they saying. I would love to know what you read for pleasure Dr C.
