On Plagues

I went to Worth for a quick check-up, since my hacking death has been pretty severe and the cough suppressant hasn’t been doing much for me. The nurse determined that I don’t have bronchitis, which is good. She gave me free meds (I keep forgetting the handouts – I’ve been buying OTC stuff at the co-op), and told me to check back in a few days if I didn’t get better.

What I’m On

  • Acetaminophen
  • Pseudoephedrine
  • Dextromethorphan
  • Loratidine
  • Guaifenesin
  • The first three are from Tylenol Cold, loratidine is better known as Claritin which I’m taking since the nurse thought I might be experiencing something related to my spring allergies, and the last is an expectorant to help me actually hack up whatever it is that’s making me congested.

    Drug cocktail party in my bloodstream; be there or be square!
