The world of prescription meds and doctors and supplements and herbals is downright confusing.
I really worry when I see a customer filling their cart with a ton of vitamins and herbals...some of which simply ought not be mixed. I suggest speaking with their doctor or our pharmacists. It can be dangerous.
Knowing what and when to use for good beneficial results is a wild zig zag circle to find out.
I kept my cholesterol at bay for years with diet. Evidently heredity pushed ahead in the race, and now I am on a low dose of Creator. Sigh. Ticks me off that I can no longer have grapefruit or grapefruit juice...which l love. Dang it.
I had to be on steroids for a while to reduce inflammation in my eyes. The pressures in my eyes were reaching the danger zone of harming optic nerves. The steroids did indeed reduce the inflammation and pressure, but they turned my stomach into a mess. As well as caused weight gain. I am vain, dammit! dislike the extra pounds that refuse to let go.
The things we endure to be healthy! Worth it, of course.
The Doctor does not like what I am trying to do and I don't have the heart to tell her what dose she prescribes I chop in half. My condition has not changed so I think they tend to over medicate at times.
Its difficult for Roslyn to get to sleep at night. I take my meds before bed and she complains each time I roll over I rattle.
This is the over 40 thread and part of being 20 plus years north of 40 means we get to talk about things best left alone. But I had a great ride today and its ride Bugs tomorrow. I might get Roslyn on Stella, let her experence a real horse instead of a quarter of a horse. I can't understand why folks spend money on quarter horse when the whole horse cost the same.
