I had an experience
today… last Monday. (I thought I posted this , guess I was suffering the effects of my oops a bit longer than I realized) I’m a survivor, and I am sure better days are ahead.
Bottom line? when the pharmacy fills your script, keep the lights on brightly when you fill your pill sorters! The neurologist has me on a strict time table which requires me to set the alarm to go off at 3 a.m. & 7 a.m. I have the pills set on the nightstand along with the required water. I noticed the shape of the pill had changed, but confirmed it was the correct one. What I failed to notice was the new shape was identical to another prescription medication which helps me relax to sleep. There is also a slight difference in color. Although it is an anti-seizure medication, I call it my sleep-aid. I only take 1/2 tablet per night.
You probably guessed what I did? Yep, instead of 1/2 tablet I took three whole sleep-aids. That is six times what works for me! I will be OK. But I have been VERY unsteady on my feet
today Monday. I have recently been humbled to depend on the aid of a cane for stability. But today Monday? I was grateful for my husband’s wheel chair and a dear neighbor who rolled me through the line, enabling me to mail the Christmas packages.
I rarely nap… but today after the PO…I didn’t wake to stay up till nearly 7 p.m.
