Tired of pharmacology …

Okay … so I’m not actually studying drugs, but I sure seem to be taking a lot of them.

I’m so tired of taking pills, and I consume at least 11, every day, for various ailments. Anti-depressants, anti-spasmodics, migraine meds, prescription analgesics (non-narcotic), vitamins, and so on.

The worst part is having to take medication to sleep; and even that medication doesn’t work as well as it should. Last night, I went to bed at 9:30, and basically just laid there until about 11:00 when I finally drifted off. Then I woke up at 2:30 … was awake until about 3:30, when I drifted off again, before getting up at my usual 5:00-5:30.

So while 9:30-5:30 sounds good, in reality, I only got about 5 hours of sleep.

This is typical.

I don’t think it’s the caffeine, since I’ve cut WAY back, and generally don’t consume any after about 2:00 anymore … and I take most of my meds in the morning, so unless any of them have speedy/stimulating side-effects that only hit 16 hours later, that’s not it either.

One of these days, I’ll be able to stop taking pills, and will still be able to get a good night’s sleep.

One thought on “Tired of pharmacology …

  1. Can’t sleep?

    Try three tabs of Kroger Natural Magnesium 250 mg.

    Dirt cheap.

    Non-addictive, no hangover, side effects include fewer cramps, stronger bones, and the weirdest dreams.

    Screw the pharmaceuticals, take the mineral. You’ll pee out what you don’t need in the morning after you’ve slept.
