Well I am officially on a list of long meds and I don't think I like it to much..
 
Currently I am taking:
Vicodine 7.5/500
Skelatin 800 mg
IBU 800 mg
Achiphex
Meripex for RLS
 
and the new one
 
Lorazepam 1mg
 
My husband says, joking of course, that I am going to end up sitting in a corner drooling.  I don't know about taking all these meds..It's scary..I am now going over and over with my doctors "Is it okay to take this with the other meds I am taking?" I list them all just to make sure the doc knows...
 
All these meds take me out for a bit and make me loopy...I don't think I like this to much either...Sometimes the work and sometimes they don't...
 
I've tried both prescribed meds and natural therapies...Pro's and Con's with each...
 
Just venting here....

Not sure about the rest, but is Aciphex for GERD?  If so, ever considered Prilosec 20 mg OTC?  I've been on an array of GERD medicines including Aciphex, but nothing does the trick like the good old "purple pill".  Just thought I would share some insight.  Take care.

my sympathy for your problems

lorazepam is a valium type med, your tablet is a mid range dose

if you disolve a tablet under the tongue it will be  a big help with any panic attack, which your doc probably hasnt thought of

I suggest you get a book on home massage and get your husband to massage you for stress reduction

Thanks...I have taken the purple pill, I had to stop, one of the side effects was hair loss and I began to lose my hair...

 

harry..My husband gives me a massage just about every evening on my back and shoulders...I take most of these meds for chronic back pain and muscle spasms...The doc gave me lorezapam for my secondary insomnia with the added benefit it would help my aniexty...

I can dissolve this pill under my tongue? What will the results be? A possible quicker response time?
