Well, another dreadful night of up till dawn, I swear some days, I feel like a vampire ! Now, if I had their healing ability, that would not be such a bad thing, but I don’t and it sucks ! No pun intended 🙂
I am still holding off on the new meds the doctor gave me for sleep, as I want this secondary infection to go away, first. I finished the last of the antibiotics, yesterday and the ear still feels weird. Like it’s stuffed full of cotton, but it at least doesn’t hurt. The drug is supposed to keep working for some 6 to 10 days, after you stop taking them, so we will see. I want to at least have the majority of it out of my system, before I try the new ones.
A word to the wise, if your doctor gives you more than one new medication, try them one at a time, as if you have side effects and you have taken more than one, you will not know which one of them.. is to blame.
I still have my doubts on the antidepressant, for sleep. The Gods know how many of them, I have tried for that. As overall, they tend to make problems we already have, worse and for most, don’t even work, at least I have not seen one yet that will work for more than a short period of time.
But I am willing to give the new one a go, but unless it majorly helps, and does not make everything a lot worse, it will go in the bottom drawer, which is where I keep all the stuff, that didn’t make the cut of being useful.
I wait until I have a sack full of them, then take them to pharmacy, for proper disposal. Our water system has so many drugs in it, from how many we have flushed down the commode, they can literally measure it, so always take any unused drugs back to the pharmacy, and let them dispose of them. And unfortunately, for those of us with FM, that drawer almost always has some failure, in it.
