We had a major scare last night — turns out the onset migraine medication a) has major drug interactions with another medication I take a lot of, and b) caused an allergic reaction. I took it about 4 pm and started noticing some of the side effects, so I looked up randomly this drug interaction thing and immediately got scared and called Jason. I eventually took a Benadryl to stop my tongue from swelling and the shortness of breath. Agh. So how is it that my PCP, the pharmacist, and the insurance company missed that?
Called the primary care physician for a) another onset migraine med, and b) someone to check all my 8 or so meds against each other. My migraine has already started for the day.
Odd and good thing is that the thing worked, so we know something works, but not at the expense of the interaction and allergic response. They sit on the table in their little blue boxes, untaken.
My goal for the day is to finish the new Kauai Coast painting! so I’m back at it. May get to have lunch with a dear friend today, and then possibly the installation of a new dishwasher.
