can NOT cope with different meds...

Postby animeemo3 » Sat Jan 25, 2014 5:44 am

Hi all. Just a quick feelings-vent/whinge. Not spoken to anyone for about a week so got a lot to say! Not coping too well with my meds at the moment. One set (pro-banthine) needs to be taken on a completely empty stomach while the desperately needed pain meds need to be taken with food or I get very ill and throw them back up. My day is filled with, ooh I need these tabs, when did I last eat? Oh it's been two hours since I took those, now I can eat and have the rest of the tabs. Oh it's not been enough time since the last time I ate, I can't take these yet but I need to soon.
It's awful. Should I just cope with the pain and take the others? Should I take the pain meds and not the others? Arghh! I dont even have an appetite anymore, only eat maybe two sandwiches a day, plus a few small snacks when I have to take tablets. No appetite plus not being able to swallow sucks! Sometimes I wonder wether to give up either med just so it isn't so complicated. I'm still putting weight on too! Still getting painful muscle cramps up my arms, legs and feet 10+ times a day and my muscles won't stop spasming and twitching. Plus I have so much trouble where I live my blood pressure has shot up and lowered my appetite even more, some days I just wonder why bother?

Sad your feeling so bad. :( Try to eat a little often this should help with meds. Hope this helps

I've started keeping small bags of nuts in the cupboard (50-100g). They're perfect when I'm not feeling well enough to make myself some food or I realise I've forgotten to eat and my blood sugar is desperately low or if I need to eat something with pain meds.

I no this sounds simple to say but can the dr give you something different ,
I mean if it's stressing you out and making your blood pressure worse what's the point .xxxx
