Hi Apples . . . I would NOT shape my rx schedule like the hospital. They really jazzed up my mom. I had to practically stand on her to get her to take her thyroid meds in the am and an hour before food . . . Then she had a hospital stay and they gave it to her WITH food. She did the same thing (copied the hospital routine) when she got home. Well . . . her TSH was getting worse and worse and the doctor kept upping the synthroid. When I asked her how she was taking it, she said that the hospital gave it to her with b'fst so she kept doing that. When I got her to go back to the 1 hour before b'fst routine, she needed 1/3 the amount she had worked up to.
When I have questions about
meds, I talk to the prescribing doc and the pharmacist.
