Right before we left for Chicago for our little vacation, I was at the pharmacy and they had these beautiful little pill organizers. They were metal, almost like little jewellry boxes, shaped like a flower, with a painted design on top. There were seven petals and when you opened it, the space to sort 7 days worth of pills. I almost bought one… because I always struggle with how to transport my vitamins/drugs — especially across the border. How do you explain a baggie full of capsules to the border guards without sounding guilty? So just as I was picking out the design that I liked, it occurred to me… my stash won’t even fit in here! I’d need like three of them!!
Morning: 1000mg fish oil, 2 x prenatal, 500mg Glumetza, 25mg DHEA, 1000iu Vitamin D, 120mg CoQ10 (8 pills total), and 4mg of Inositol (powder) mixed into my protein shake
Lunch: 500mg Vitamin C, 50mg Vitamin B Complex, 35 mg iron supplement, 25mg DHEA, 1000mg fish oil (5 pills total)
Evening: 1000mg fish oil, 1x prenatal, 1000mg Glumetza, 25mg DHEA, 1000iu Vitamin D, 5mg folic acid, 81mg baby aspirin (8 pills total), and 4mg of Inositol in whatever my dinner beverage of choice is.
At a visit to my family physician earlier this week, she said “that’s some very expensive urine you’ve got!” Indeed. And she added to the mix by prescribing me 250-500mg of Naprosyn and Tylenol 3 as needed — because I herniated a disc in my back on the Labour day weekend. Good times. And the reason I’ve taken over a week to post this — blogging from the iPad sucks. And sitting at the computer (because I’m the last person on the planet that doesn’t own a laptop) wasn’t an option for days and days and days. I’m digressing — this post is about the drugs, not my back (which is getting better, thank you for asking)
Now that we’ve started our IVF cycle, I can add in 1 Marvelon pill at bedtime (ending in 8 days)
Later this week — 2 squirts of Synarel up my nose each day.
And in October – one needle per day starting October 7 for 10 days 300mg Bravelle and 75mg Repronex.
Very expensive urine indeed.
