Mediacation and me

Ok so i struggle taking my ani des but am getting that bit better. I woke up with bad head and thou the day it turned to a migrane. So after fetching kids from school i fetched some nurefen. Didnt know if i wud take one thou. So i said to me mate once u come back from the shop i will take one. So she comes back passes me a nurefen and a glass of water. Before i even took it i was crying in pure panick with all the symtoms of anxiety. Sent myself into a panic attack. Then took one (i neva take two ones enuf) which made me worse with fear but after a while once the migrane eased abit i new i had done the rite thing.

I even said while having a panic attack cant believe ive got a anxiety about taking things that make me feel better. I have never told anyone other then on this site. The signs have always been there like everyone will say take two it says u can on the box. But no well the bezzie mates knows know and she told me its anxiety trying to get to me. Which i agree but doesnt make it any easyer.

As for taking my anti des tonight, i wont be as after taking a nurefen i wont. I know the nurfen is out ur system in about four hours but no way still a no no xxx

  • Hi donaf

    I have taken my 3rd statin , three nights in a row

    Cant say its easy , as it isn't , wanted to give up tonight , but I went for it

    I take painkillers , as well as blood pressure tablets , now this one

    Once I have the confidence , that nothing bad is going to happen it gets easier , this can take me ages though & I mean ages , its not easy , if you don't have this problem no doubt it may be hard to understand

    Keep going , we will beat this med anxiety

Uve really cheered me up as i know how hard it is but ur sticking to it. :-) thanx eve :-) sheffield everyone tells me that u can take anything with anti des but doesnt make me feel any better about it. My moms on flouxetine like me and she takes two pain killers wen shes got headache. My sister is on two flouxetine a day and shes the same. I saw my sisters on the morning of her wedding about 3 yrs back, take her to anti des with a glass of wine. That wud of just freaked me out, even 3 yrs back. Thanx sheffielld.

  • I am like that too, always checking that this can be taken with that. I should rattle with the meds I take !! Haha. But I think a lot of us feel like this. Some of our meds are pretty powerful and don't want to be messing with them. xx

  • P.S.; this site is so good at making you feel you are not the only one feeling like this. Am so glad that I found it. xx to you all. xx
