Hooray for me! Over a week with no Lunesta! Still laying in bed for a long while before I do fall asleep, but when I finally do drift off…I stay asleep. It is easier to wake up and I’m not in a daze for hours after getting up. My daytime drowsiness isn’t as big a problem now but I still need to nap or rest every day.
Saw the endo yesterday and she strongly suggested that I try to taper my steroid dose. I am taking 25mg daily and she wants me to get down to 20mg, easier said than done. She also gave me a prescription for Florinef hoping that it will help me tolerate the summer heat easier. Last summer I was sick for months and I don’t want to go through that again.
Another doctor visit tomorrow with my Osteopathic Physician for regular blood pressure check and refills on all my drugs. I am telling him that I have stopped taking Simvastatin because of the side effects. Heck, I’m only taking 10mg daily…why bother? With my last blood work-up (just done last week), my cholesterol was good, and I forgot to fast before the test…and it was still fabulous! (anyone taking a statin drug check the side effects…very interesting)
The air-conditioner was working overtime both yesterday and today, in MARCH! Unreal.
