Bad Medicine: What I Need (oh whoa whoa)?
When it comes to safe and/or over the counter pills, how much is too much?
I ask because I currently take a multi-vitamin, Omega fish oil tablet, vitamin D-3 (400 IU), and vitamin E (200 IU) every day. I’ve also started taking ibuprofen 2-3 times a day for my knee. It got what I (and my doctor) assume was a little fluid in it from over-exerting myself during a run without stretching out properly, and while it’s slowly improving it still gets a little sore and funky if I’m on it too much.
Then, to combat an…unpleasantness derived from protein shakes, I purchased Beano at the suggestion of several folks who claimed it might remedy my…OKAY FARTS. You’re supposed to take 2-3 tablets right before consuming whatever it is that ails your digestive system. Myself, I take 2 of them.
This all in addition to the daily pill I take so that when I talk to my cat, she doesn’t talk back to me. Okay, that’s not what the medication’s for, but it’s also none of your damn business! I’m playing the HIPAA card, damnit!
So that’s eight to ten tablets or pills a day. I realize they’re not painkillers or anything, but it just strikes me as a lot.
Thoughts? Am I destined for Celebrity Rehab 4? And do I have to room with Andy Dick? Because I’ll hit him, I swear.
