At breakfast yesterday morning I went to take my 9mg Pred. I put 1x5mg tablet and 4x1mg tablets all together in the palm of my hand, threw them into my mouth and downed them with a drink of water. Or so I thought, until I became aware of one of the tablets bouncing off my chin and falling onto the floor. The pesky thing managed to hide until a full search party (me, my husband and my daughter) found it lurking behind a table leg. Meanwhile however, I was left wondering whether it was the 5mg tablet or one of the 1mg tablets I had dropped, and whether I had actually taken 8mg or 4mg of Pred instead of 9mg. (My husband and daughter did laugh and question how I managed to miss my mouth... I will deal with them later!)
This morning I have started a new routine - I take the 5mg first, and only after I've swallowed it do I then take the 1mg tablets - that way I definitely know what I've taken. Sorted!
Now to sort out my husband and daughter
