I keep getting awaken throughout the night as they are bringing people to the kitchen and they are very noisy. We don't really talk and they seem to avoid me in the kitchen. I would like to make a noise complaint but they would probably know it was me and I am worried they might become very mean towards me. I am finding it hard to confront them face to face.

Yeah this is a common thing so don't worry. I would say that it would be best to talk to them first, just because if you go and make a complaint they're likely to be weird with you from then on. I do however think though that you have to go to uni with a mind-set of having to deal with stuff like that. You could look for some solutions to it too, ear plugs, white noise machines etc etc. However if they are taking the **** every single night then you're well within your right to say something.

Not to sound like a snitch here but i made a complaint against my flatmate when i was in 1st year. It was 2nd semester and we had finals. I messaged the group chat and told them all i had an exam (a week in advance) so i requested quiet on that night. The sod next door decided it would be a fantastic time to invite his friends round for a weed sesh at 1am. I literally picked my blanket up and went to sleep on the floor on the opposite side of the room to get away from the noise (our beds were side by side next to the thin wall. Long story short, i rang the security guards number who was on patrol downstairs and he came up to his room. They 100% knew it was me but IDC

Moral of the story: talk to them NOW before it ends up happening all year and they start disrespecting you. I let it slide all year and ended up going to my 8:30am exam with 3 bags - 1 on my back and 2 under my eyes

I would invest in some earplugs, personally. This will keep happening regardless of how much your complain - it is just part of living with other students, unfortunately.

Did they get into trouble? Did security found out about the weed?

He definitely knew they were smoking because the hallway to our flat smelled potent. It took them like 10mins to open the door because they had to hide the drugs and the security was persistent in them opening the door. He didnt mention drugs to them he just told them to keep the noise down because your flatmate (aka me) was trying to sleep.

You can call me 69 at this point because i was happy to snitch left right and centre. Especially as i specifically told him i had an exam in the morning and spent over 2 months revising solidly for it. They're lucky the security just told them to be quiet and didnt mention the drugs

This is a totally unrelated question but how did you choose your username?

Try to approach them first, if they dont listen then consider reporting
They might not nessecarily know it is you, i had to report one of my housemates in second year for constantly having really loud sex in the room next to mine. The complaint got blamed on the grumpy guy downstairs :getmecoat:

But do you know the common dosage and uptitration regime?

Or the history of development of ACE-inhibitors in general? I do - nerd alert

Sorry OP to hear of your situation - could you ask if uni can swap your accommodation?

The Brazilian pit viper snake venom was used as arrowhead poison by Amazonian tribes for centuries. It kills by lowering blood pressure.

In the 60s researchers used it to make the first ACE-inhibitor after realising the active ingredient, and called it Captopril. Capto- has something to do with snake but I can't remember off the top of my head!

Ramipril dosing is easy - multiples of 1.25mg until up to 10mg. It used to come with titration packs too, hence was the GPs' favourite and that's why it's so widespread.

Or just sub-specialise in Heart failure as a Cardiologist... that's literally what they do all the time; well I think you'd also need to learn about Furosemide, but that's easy :rofl:

Try to reason with them first, but if that doesn't work you need to complain about it

:lol: I really think that Heart Failure is such a non-Cardiology thing for Cardiologist, it must just be linked to that specialty by historical links. Perhaps Elderly Care can take over in the future.

Everything in Cardiology (maybe except imaging) is so "surgical". Sorry for being sooooo off-topic! :rofl:
