Let the Meds Begin

Sunday, March 03, 2013

So after my last labs were high and my historically low blood pressure has become high ( IMHO due to my job), They informed me it was genetic and no amount of diet change was going to make much difference ( we tried). I agreed to add two more meds into my repertoire. I will be taking Simvistat and Niacor each night...on top of the ambien. I HATE taking meds. He seems to think I will magically start feeling better after 3 months. We will wait and see. I currently feel like I am on itchy fire. He said it couldn't hurt to exercise when possible either.O On the good side, I am going to meet with the sleep specialist this coming week. My insurance kept denying my sleep study, but with seeing the specialist, I should be good to go! I still feel jealous of all my friends that have had the gastric bypass. They got skinny and their quality of life improved. They met people and had more babies. Except my dear old friend "Jane ", who passed away 3 days after her surgery from a blood clot. That's what scares me. I need to stop for a minute..This girl is on fire....oooowwww even my brain is burning. I was warned about the Nicaor, but didn't think it was this bad. So I hope these things help and some stuff starts to go back to normal for me. Hope everyone is doing well

    Thanks! He knows me well enough, that if the side effects bother me very long, it's gone. :)

    Keep an eye on your reaction to this new medication it may not be for you. There are other things on the market if the Dr. thinks you really need this med. Give the kids a hug from me. Sandy emoticon
