I took my last dose of the Devil's Advocate drug two Sunday's ago. My jitteryness started this past Saturday, as did my headaches. It' just absolutely uncomfortable!!!
And I will NEVER take prednisone again. Nope. If poison ivy becomes an issue I will use the pink cream and take oatmeal baths before going back to those evil little white pills. : ) It's a good thing I'm not really allergic to the ivy! I've only had it a handfull of times in my entire life, and it's been extremely minimal. Now, my brother is a different story...poor guy...as a child he simply had to breathe around it and he was taken to the doctor for shots. He still gets that way at times.
Anyway, I've gotten off ALL meds except for my Paxil, and I'm just taking Prilosec once a day now...I love my mustard and spicy foods, so now that I'm eating them again I really do not want the reflux to start back up. : ) I'm going back on my birth control at the next opportunity b/c I wanted that out of my system too just to give my hormones a chance to relax and breathe without all that medication!
Thanks guys so much for your support. If it weren't so cold last night I would have taken a midnight stroll around our neighborhood. However, it's freezing and icy, so leave it to me to fall on black ice half a mile from home and have to call someone to come get me. That's MY luck. : ) Summerstorm has the funny stories about pudding and washcloths...I'm the one with the bumps and bruises from dorky mishaps.
