SOLSC Day 14
The other day I went over to our local pharmacy. It was time to get a refill on some blood pressure medication. After all, all of the news programs have been telling us we should have a good supply of the things we need in the house, medications being one of those.
Since I had called in the refill the day before, it was there waiting for me when I got there. I paid for it and brought it home.
I don’t usually read all of those warning stickers they plaster all over the pill bottle nor do I read the information sheet. I figure the doctor would have told me anything I needed to know about the medicine. Plus, I have been buying this for years.
This time, though, I decided to read all of those stickers. Maybe I was bored and just looking for something to do. Anyhow, here are the stickers:
That first warning…oh my! Better hide the car keys. As for operating equipment, I guess the snow blower, which we haven’t needed all winter, is out of the question.
This drug may cause dizziness. Hmmm…that might be hard to notice. I think I need a better definition of what undo dizziness is. Oh, wait, it’s dizziness not ditziness. Silly me. I had better get new glasses.
Don’t have to worry about nonprescription drugs and their interaction as no other drugs are taken. That’s a relief to know.
As for the last warning, I am pretty good about taking medications as directed and not missing doses. Don’t have to worry about this.
Oh, did I mention that this medication is not for me?
