I actually do this often.
The doctor I had in the country would get really angry when I did this, but my current doctor does it himself in front of me and uses Google medical and not just a search engine.
My current doctor does not think there is anything wrong with his patients researching either his findings, or results of test he has given etc.
However, I have to say that I usually feel worse after checking as half of them say you can die from simple things -the leaflets nowadays have long lists of bad reactions and I now avoid reading them often, as I may not take the pill if I read it -I trust that the doctor knows what he is prescribing me.
I am not a panicky person so I can read the important stuff and weed out the info which I do not need at all. I am very careful which sites to look on as well,as there are a lot which are not very well researched or controlled.Too many folk actually make themselves worse by not understanding what they have read.It can be very detrimental to their emotional health if gthey just take everythin g they have read as the abvbsolute truth. There are many grey areas with medicine,as with most aspects of life. But used properly,the internet can be an excellent and helpful research tool.
Yes, particularly when those suggestions are more queries regarding dosage, side effects, alternatives etc. Many are the times that I have queried the doctors instructions because prior to my visit, I have been playing on Dr Google and have thought things didn't quite add up. Never ever pays to be too confident in medical skills……. anyone can be having a "busy" day.
