When I had my last doctor's appointment, sure enough; I didn't leave without a prescription. In a way I feel sorry for my doctor. He really wants to help me, but there isn't much he can do. He knows I won't take any injectable medications and that I reject most drugs. Still he keeps trying. This time it was another "anti fatigue" pill, which is in fact just another variation of speed. I''m sure the fact that I have a good drug plan only encourages doctor's to precribe more stuff that I don't really need.
When my doctor told me to take this new medication early in the day as it can cause insomnia, I didn't say a word, but I was thinking "here we go again!" The same message for a new drug as for the old. Drug companies are very good at dressing up old medications to look like new ones. I even saw a drug ad (while I was in the U.S.) for a pill that helps boost anti depressants, to supposedly make them work better. So they admit the anti depressants don't work that good, but instead of telling people to stop them, they come up with another pill for you to take!!
Well the prescription is sitting in the drawer and I doubt I will get it filled. I've tried those wake up pills and all they do is make me feel stoned in an unpleasant way.
My drug of choice is THC vapour and it works for me. Used in moderation, cannabis is beneficial . It helps me sleep and takes away my aches and muscle spasms. I also have very nice dreams!!
P.S. : Does anybody know the official MS colour(s)? I looked it up and some say it is orange, but grey, silver, and red are too. I'm asking because I want to design some jewel bracelets for a fund raiser.
