walking pharmacy!

Ok, so here's the scoop:

Antibiotic: Ciprofloxacin
2 a day for a week, 12 hours apart. No Dairy, lots of water, empty stomach.

Thyroid: Levothyroxine
1 a day, for...probably ever. Empty stomach, LOTS of water. 4 hours before or after dietary fiber and/or walnuts.

Energy: B12, 500micrograms
1 a day. Empty stomach.

Plus the 20mg Cipralex.

So, what this basically means is:

1. No food before 10am until the antibiotics are done. (Antibiotic at 8am before work)
2. Lots of water.
3. No walnuts. not that I really like walnuts on their own...
4. Lots more water.
5. No dairy for a WEEK?? No ice cream? WHY?!?!?
6. More water. Seriously.
7. No food after 6pm. (Meds at 8pm, on empty stomach)
8. Waaaaater.
9. Once the antibiotics are done, pro-biotic yogurt to balance things out.
10. Are your eyes floating? No? More water.

...I'm going to be spending a lot of time in the loo.

That is indeed a lot of water. o_0 But I'm so glad that you went to the doctor and looked after yourself. And from the sounds of it, these are all things that can be looked after without an awful lot of trouble.

Take care, and I'll be sending good vibes your way! *hugs*
