>I started a new medication last week, Terbinafine. It’s only one tablet a day but it tastes disgusting and no matter what I do it seems to dissolve in my mouth. I’m gonna be on it for three months, maybe a little longer (possibly up to six) which is a bit better than a new permanent medication. That’s apparently harsh on the liver which made me worry a bit about whether I should take it. So we agreed that I would have a blood test part way through the course which they don’t normally do. I’m hoping the fact I’ve lost more weight will mean that it’s a lot easier to do this time! Oh and apparently it might increase my fluoxetine levels in my blood slightly and I need to watch that. Not sure how I do that but equally I’m not convinced it wouldn’t be a bad thing. I’m not OMG depressed but certainly a little flat the last week or so. Probably a result of being ill so it should go off soon, I hope.
Actually, I started another new medication a while ago but I don’t think I ever blogged about it. That’s Mefenamic Acid and I just take it three times a day when I’ve got my period (and the day or so before if I know it’s coming which I never do anymore, *sigh*). It’s to prevent a recurrence of the two week long bleeding nightmare periods I’ve had a couple of in the last year or so. It seemed to work well when I took it although I would have preferred to go on something to regulate it. But I couldn’t get in with my regular GP and the GP I saw wanted to prescribe the pill for me (instead of a few days a month of Noristerone which my GP was going to give me if it came to it, which it has). The pill which both my regular GP and the nurse I see regularly say I can’t have (overweight, wheelchair user with a family history of DVT). I queried it with that GP who checked a book and said I could take it but the patient information leaflet would say I couldn’t. I said no to that prospect!
I’m really, really hoping that I’ll be almost at the 2 stone lost mark when I weigh in tomorrow. In fact I’m secretly hoping I’ll be there but that’s 3lb+ in a week and is probably unrealistic!
Walked more on Saturday then I have in a long time. Went to visit my Uncle and his partner in their new house which has a lot of walking in it. It’s a lovely house with some amazing views and it was lovely to see them My legs are feeling quite tight now however which isn’t great. I’ve upped my baclofen for a few days (script is written for me to do that if I feel I need to).
I have been online entirely too much since I came home from the bureau.
