I called the pharmacist and asked what the side effects and contraindications are for Flomax. (got a freebee with no paperwork and wanted to make sure I could use it with my other meds)  She tells me premature ejaculation, confusion, dizziness and sleepiness.  "Holy Cow!" I said.  "All of this from a nasal spray?"  thinking at least I don't have to worry about the premature ejaculation part.  'Nasal spray...do you mean Flonase?" she says.
 
Yes...of course that's what I meant.  Flomax is for enlarged prostate.  Oh, the humanity! And double DUH!

omg I laughed so hard, d*** that fibro fog :D
Pain is temporary.  It might last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year but eventually it subsides and something else will take its place.  If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

Jeez, you sure so have some luck. Sounds like the local pharmacy here.
So glad to see your sense of humor. I've got my best friend hooked on your "Fibro Burns" series.
PS....I'm in Oswego 6 days a week.

Well I gotta admit, I am a retired RN and I could have done that same thing that you did, my fibro has messed up my mind THAT much!! I embarrass myself with the things I say, especially when it comes to medications, because I can't remember a thing and I'm only getting worse. Sometimes I wonder if I have alzheimer's. No, REally!!!!!

God help us all!

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.
