I am so glad this post/question has come up, because I have been wondering the same thing about OTC meds. Although I'm not sick right now, I usually get pretty sick during the winter, but I am scared to death to take anything OTC because I just don't know how well it will work out. But when/if it happens that I get sick I will definitely consult the pharmacist about it. I'm on so many meds now (Psych as well as for other medical conditions), I just wouldn't know what to do.
Thanks for bringing up this question Ellie.
Take care and I hope you feel better soon.
A slip of the foot you may soon recover,
but a slip of the tongue you may never get over.
Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. I agree with LFW and Wen. Checking in with your pharmacist is so easy and that is what they are there for. I know all my psych med pamphlets say consult your doctor or pharmacist when taking otc meds.
I just take the basic tylenol, wash my hands a lot, and things I use a lot like my phone, cell phone, remote control, pillow cases, glasses and dishes. (I use the same ones over and over again after thoroughly cleaning them) get plenty of rest and definately ask LFW for that chicken soup recipe! Oh and don't forget to just step outside once in a while, bundled up to get some fresh air. That is what works for me. Oh and lots of tea!
LFW, if you are reading this could you please send me a copy of your recipe? I would love to try it.
Hope you are soon feeling better Ellie!
