I'm starting to think the best thing to do is give up Medicine A.
For one thing, I'm still having problems falling asleep at night and I'm already taking three Medicine B pills plus two Medicine C pills a night. I don't like the idea of taking more Medicine B to stop a problem that might just be because I'm taking Medicine A.
Also, if I recall correctly, I started taking Medicine D because the Medicine A was causing me to gain weight.
So that's two drugs to cancel out the effects of one drug.
Seems like overkill to me.
I know that I was really bad before I started the Medicine A though, so I'm a little worried about it. But Justin reminds me that there was a time when I was OK without any meds at all, and who's to say I won't be OK again.
I'm guessing it doesn't usually work that way--but is this really what I'm destined for? A lifetime of taking meds out of a granny-like pill box?
Right now I have five pills in the morning and five at night, for a total of six different drugs and ten pills. I know I don't usually care how many pills I'm taking when I'm doing well, but aside from the restless legs I am doing pretty well, so I have to ask what the heck I am doing.
