Couldn't sleep well cos couldn't stop coughing early this morning. So, decided I better go see doctor this afternoon. And guess what? I was given SEVEN types of medication!! Gosh, I think that must be a record for me!
Before you think I'm in such a grave condition.. really, I don't think I'm that ill. That's the `problem' with visiting a panel clinic. Or in my case, the `in-house' NST clinic. I have experienced it before and so have most of my colleagues. The doctors are simply `over-generous ' with their medicine prescription because they could claim more medicine expenses from my company!
So these are my medicine:
- Antibiotic -Amoxil
- Antibiotic - Flagyl
- Cough mixture - (can't read the name)
- Cough tablet - Descophan
- Flu & Allegy - Aerious
- Swelling - Presdnisolone
- Fever & pain - Panadol
But he didn't give me an M.C. Ah well.. it was already afternoon..
When I took out the medicine to take at my office desk, I was getting more concerned whether I would have a medicine overdose! Knowing how taking most Western medicine would make us feel quite weak.. o I decided I should cut down the medicine and called up the clinic again.
The kind nurse there, upon hearing my worries, called me back later and said I could drop two of them - namely the one for swelling and the cough tablet. But I have to take both the antibiotics.
Yes, the medicine did take effect on me.. I felt more and more drowsy and so I left office before 6pm. Was basically battling for my eye-lids to stay open during the drive home - thank God I made it in one piece..! So I hit my bed for an hour or so before getting up for dinner...
Just took those medicine again not long ago and am feeling really sleepy again....
