Are Mom's Meds Making Her Sick?

"Mom seems to think that all her medications make her sick. I really doubt it and she needs her meds. Would I be out of line to call her physician and discuss my concerns?"

If this means that she stops taking the medications that she needs, then you really want to address it. Try to assess if there is an actual physical reaction happening or if there is more of a psychological response to taking meds. It could be that she is trying to send you a message that she is actually worried about her illness or that her current condition may be worse than anyone knows.
