Instead of 5 Fruit & Veg a day 🍎🥦 I’m on 14 Pills a day 💊

I have to now take 14 pills a day day. Luckily though, only for the next week, then I’m back to my usual 8 pills a day.

I have unfortunately got a ear infection so I’m on antibiotics and a pain killer. On top of the morning mix of 750mg Depakote (500mg & 250mg), 5mg Ramipril and 1mg Varenicline, I’m super sizing it up with 500mg of Clarithromycin and 2 x 8mg/500mg Co-Codamol.

Supper now consists of 750mg Depakote (500mg & 250mg), 30mg Mirtazipine, 1mg Varenicline with 500mg of Clarithromycin and 2 x 8mg/500mg Co-Codamol.

I’m just wondering if this concoction has ever been tested for interactions with each other as a group? Obviously as individual compounds they are low risk but they don’t necessarily behave in the same way in a different environment.

It’s like two friends you may have that you get on really well with individually, but when you’re in a group of 3, the two friends constantly bicker.

There’s a pill for everything it seems these days. The scary part is, how many of you test the medication you receive? Is it the dose it claims to be? Is it made up in the correct ratio of active ingredient to non-active ingredients? Is it a placebo?

Another thing I have noticed is that when you are asked about allergies to certain medications, they don’t ask about allergies to the other compounds in the medication.

Finally, I will leave you with my absolute disgust with medications that companies get away with. When you see a product that claims to target pain, period pain, migraines, toothache etc, you are naturally going to be convinced that it is that as you trust the Pfizer and GSK of the world. It’s an absolute load of bollocks! No painkillers target pain. They just hit the central nervous system and nullify the sensitivity of the nerves. Simple science. You can also pay £5 for the branded ones that are next to the supermarket one at £1. That is all profit. Look at the box and you will see a PL code. This code relates to the active ingredient in the medication.
