I have provigil for fatigue but that hasn't bothered me for a few weeks. My bottle says to take it once in the morning.
I have thing of which neurontin eases, bottle says to take 300mg x 1 per day
Baclofen stops my ankles twisting but the bottle says to take it 3 times per day.
Since relapsing remtting ms and even the other types, present different symptoms on different days why arent some of these meds until needed used as prn.
For example, if I have an attack or episode that lasts one week of where ankle twisting hurts and i use the baclofen but only find I needed to take it once, then why am I taking it for the 50 days of none of those symptoms?
I do totally understand that once on baclofen as prescribed (taking it as the bottle says), stopping it abruptly may bring on seizures, but since so much of what we have changes so often,
wouldn't it be better to take what your episode consists of (treatment of symptoms felt).
I know that some will disagree . I also understand if I continue to have daily ankle twisting Id need to take it as prescribed and even when I didn't feel it. That there may come a day that I need a certain dose around the clock and daily.
But..for now? When ankle twists have been 3 times and effectively corrected with baclofen, why should I take 3 per day every day and even in small remissions?
I'm just curious as to whether its taken into condiseration that we may not have an attack or symptom that needs a certain med (bac as an example) but for 5 days out of a month , and sometimes not but twice a year.
Doesn't that lead to alot of overtaking when not needed?
Your thought's on this will be enlightening. I can't be the only one thats wondered about this. Are we to be compliant to everything that reads 3 x per day even if thats not what we are experiencing, or should we talk with our doctor's about "some" of them, being PRN?
Every day brings us closer to what we reach for .........in all things.
