So I went to take my meds last night and grabbed my night time case and my MORNING case by accident instead of my vitamin case.  shocked So I got a double dose of my tramadol and skelaxin.  nono I also got an extra dose of prednisone and lasix. shakehead I am not sure how to handle my morning pills today as a result.  confused Any ideas? I take the majority of my meds at night because they cause nausea so not much got duplicated but taking an extra dose of a few meds is never cool. I got very little sleep thanks to the prednisone despite the doubling of my muscle relaxers and pain meds. shakehead Obviously my neurological issues are still a problem. I wish I could figure out a magic cure for lupus and other AI issues. MI passed a stem cell research bill, so maybe that will offer hope. I voted for it because darn it all stem cell research is our best hope of a cure.
 
I am trying to write again, and am sorry I haven't been online much. I am so darned tired lately that I have not been online more than to check email. sad

Sorry this response is so late for you Redrose.

I would have suggested calling your pharmacist . . . but sounds like its a bit late for that now.

Are you back on schedule now? *sigh* I hope you are over the hump.

Blessings!

Oh Redrose,
 
I did that exact same thing a few months ago.  Sent me into a full on panic attack....((((((((((((hugs))))))))))).  UGH, I know what you're feeling right now.
 
I ended up skipping the next dose of all my meds that I had taken that night.  Then restarted fresh the next evening.  Going for 12 hours without my meds was safer than taking them in the morning with the risk of getting too much in my system.
 
But if you're still wary, I'd call your pharmasist too. Good advice Rosie.
 
Hope your day goes well Redrose,
