So I mentioned my allergies. They've been bad.
So I've been taking my Claritin every morning...then I've been taking whatever OTC allergy medication is handy when I'm feeling miserable later in the day. I freely admit I've got a little bit of this and a little bit of that lying around. I got the Benadryl upstairs, I got the Tylenol Allergy in my purse. Whatever...I've been taking it.
Two nights ago I was so miserable I barely slept, so last night despite utter exhaustion which should have, on its own, guaranteed a good night's sleep, I decided that I ought to take an Ambien just to be sure I got some sleep.
So, how did I feel today? ...
Now first, I must clarify that I have a prescription for the Ambien. I got a prescription from my old OB-GYN who basically would give me anything I asked for. This is the woman who gave me a full prescription for Zoloft because I said I was a little depressed a few years back!
Anyway, over a year and a half ago she gave me a prescription for 10 (woo hoo!) 10 Ambien...which cost like $30.
And I still had 2 left as of last night.
So, don't worry about me going all Valley of the Dolls on you.
But I do think I combo'ed up in not the best way over the last few days. Today I did not feel so excellent. A little groggy and weird.
Allergies are finally subsiding.
But my head feels a little like, oh I don't know...I mixed antihistamines and decongestants and sleeping pills in a somewhat willy nilly fashion.
