I saw my infectious disease doctor for the last time late last week. I will be finishing the antibiotics in another month (for latent tb), and she told me I did not have to see her again, unless I needed to (which I certainly won't). As of the third week in August, I will be eliminating three drugs i currently take, leaving me with a mere 10. But, hey, I'm not complaining. I'm sure some of you take way more drugs than I do. We had a friend spend the night Sat. night and he watched me pack my pills for the week on Sunday morning. He was flabbergasted at the number of meds I'm on. My Gyn doctor also called me a walking pharmocopia--she's the only doctor I have that does not have me on anything. So anytime I can get rid of something, the better off I am.
