In my last post I wrote about how the pollen is affecting me and my meniere’s disease. Well the pollen is still here causing me to become dizzy and light headed. Consequently I have taken a lot of medications that has made me very lethargic. I have taken not only the Antivert but also the Phenergan, both are sedatives. I have also taken Benadryl, which makes me tired as well. All this has pretty much kept me in bed most of the time the past few days. I have also missed work.
I really have to wonder sometimes if I am taking too many medications especially if I am at home. After having Meniere’s disease for so many years I am not sure that some of these medications have lost their effectiveness on me. Especially with the Antivert, it seems lately if I am at home I will go for the Phenergan before the Antivert. Of course if I am at work I can’t take the Phenergan because it makes me really tired.
One reason that I am quick to take the medications is the memory of all the bad attacks that I have had. I get scared that I am about to have an attack and immediately go for the meds. As most of you know just the thought of having a bad attack can be frightening.
