Right, I’ve just (about an hour ago) scoffed down a load of medication. I was impatient, and didn’t really pay attention to what I was doing.
Here’s what I’m sure I’ve taken:
- Skin hair & nail supplements (nothing to do with MS)
- Contraceptive pill
Here’s what I’m not sure I’ve taken, but should be due, to make myself comfortable for the night ahead:
- Baclofen (2x10mg)
- Diazepam 5mg
I’m suspicious I didn’t take them - partly because I just had a feeling something was missing that should have been there, but partly that after waiting an hour, I’m not sure I’m getting the symptom relief I should usually expect, which adds to my suspicions…
In the past, I have been on much higher doses of diazepam without ill effect, so I’m satisfied that if I split the difference and take half a tablet, to make up for the one I may or may not have taken, nothing bad will happen if I’ve taken it after all, bringing my total to one-and-a-half.
Baclofen is the one I’m not sure about. I take six pills a day, in divided doses - but never more than two at once. I’m absolutely fine with that.
Do you reckon it’s OK to take another one, even though I may have taken two already? Obviously, the longer I bide my time, the less dodgy it is, as my metabolism will have had more time to process the first two - IF I ever took them!
I won’t chance taking two, which might bring my total to four, but do you think three would still be OK if I’m always fine with two?
The alternative is to go to bed with a chance I’ve had no baclofen at all, which is simply asking for trouble, and likely to lead to a very distressing night.
I know I should have been more careful, but it’s too late now. What do you reckon is the best tactic for a safe but not too symptom-dominated night?
