Too Many Meds
There are too many medications in this house right now. In the morning I have to take my 3 regular pills (for thyroid, high blood pressure, & high cholesterol). I also take a flexoril, which I take 3 times a day. Then there's the gabapentin. I've been taking 200 mg at bedtime and I'm going to add 100 either in the morning or evening (doc says OK). I've been off the vicodin for 2 days now (I want to drink alcohol, soon) but it's there if I need it. My eye is still weird so I'm supposed to put in these eye drops 4 times a day. I'm lucky if I remember it twice a day. Then my arm started doing it's weird thing-so I have a cream I have to rub in twice a day. Of course, I forgot this morning's rub. Oh, there's also a fiber chew in the evening and my multivitamin at bedtime. Then I can't forget Seneca who needs a half a pill around 2PM (I actually remembered that one today!) and a full pill when I go to bed. Too many meds to remember!
