I’m now a week into my medication and so far, so good.
I’ll be honest, though…I wasn’t feeling great over the first couple of days last week. My doctor said that I would feel “weird” and sure enough, that’s how I felt.
The first day saw my stomach doing butterflies. I then started yawning uncontrollably, yet I wasn’t really tired. My lips tingled a bit and my mouth got pretty dry. It was all a strange sensation.
The second day saw my stomach react negatively. I was driving to work with Sunshine when I told her that I wouldn’t be able to go into the office. I dropped her off and went back home to lay on the couch for most of the day. As the afternoon went on, though, I felt a lot better. I then figured if I could handle the morning, I would be fine to handle the afternoon.
In the next few days, the only real side effect was a bit of dizziness and dry mouth. It was a very weird feeling, but nothing I couldn’t handle.
So today is Day 8. On Saturday I’m supposed to double-up my dosage. Thankfully, I’m going to be with my son and not at the office so I’m hoping to not see much in terms of changes. We’ll hang out during the morning so I can let my body react accordingly, then we’ll do some shopping after lunch.
I’m a little bit nervous, though…just because my pharmacist warned me that this was a pretty large dose of meds. Having read a couple of comments on the blog, though, have me confident that I’ll get through this without much of a problem. I might get thrown off a bit at first, but I should hopefully feel better as the day goes on.
And after a couple of weeks, I should be feeling great. Fingers crossed…
