My full range of day to day tablets. How come I’m still not healthy 😉
No wonder my bag weighs a tonne with all that goodness in it …
To be fair I don’t take all of these every day … regularly Sumatriptan (Imigran), occassionally Ibuprofen and the hay fever (Priteze) is new this week as I’m just starting with watery eyes and sniffy nose. Plus I haven’t actually taken a Stugeron (Cinnarizine) yet – my naseau hasn’t been too bad since I got them (they’re so effective I didn’t need to take them out of the packet for them to work – ha ha!)
But they all still form part of my armoury. I’d like to add some over the counter sleeping pills to this lot for troubled nights – but how many antihistamines can one woman take?
At the moment I take 15 tablets on an average day. That’s not bad – however none of them are actually a treatment for ME/CFS as such.
If you’re interested …
I take a good immune focused multi-vitamin plus vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Omega 3, 6, 9 and Magnesium, every day (and I’m starting extra zinc soon) to give my body a helping hand. There’s too many figures for my vitamin and mineral intake for me to tell you all the details here! I take peppermint oil 200mg-400mg and mebeverine 135mg before main meals to help with IBS symptoms. I use paracetamol and codeine (16mg) frequently for pain. And recently I started using Sumatriptan 50mg for migraine headaches (and it’s been brilliant).
Nearly time for my next tablet 😉
