    Exclamation Completely, screwed up my meds.!!!

    My Dr. has me on 2 meds. and a really screwy schedule for each, of them! Any, I I know, I've
    messed up, big-time! What do I do? It's Sat. night, so, Mon. is right, around the corner. Do I go to the
    E. R. now or is it safe to wait and call her on Mon.?

    Do you feel bad? You could call the ER and tell them exactly what you did, see what they say.

    Thumbs up Barque,

    I really don't feel bad, considering, the idiotic thing, I pulled, ya know?
    Also, I'm drinking lots of water to try and flush all of this crap out of my system.
    What do you think?? Thank you so much for such a quick reply!!!:)

    ****I have called my doctor on a Saturday night and it didn't produce a happy response. Otherwise, what is your general experience with your local ER? Another matter is, what are the risks? If you're risking an unstable condition with risk of seizures, that is worth considering in your decision. Hope this reply reaches you soon enough. Please reply if you feel up to it.

    Mal, I could call My Dr. or go to the E.R. right, now, and it wouldn't be a problem for anyone. Not sure why,
    you'd get that sort of response?? Dr.'s/ E..R.'s *aren't* supposed, to do that!! With seizures, the risks could
    be severe!

    ***** If you are concerned about risks, then you could do either. Just, if you choose to make it your doctor, try to make it early enough. The advantage of calling her is that she has familiarity with your case. One advantage of dealing with the ER is that if you go there, there is a safety factor for adverse events.

    I think, the E.R. would need to contact my Dr., though??? Also, again, I'm o.d.'ing on water, to try and flush
    all of this crap out of my system, hoping, it will be enough???

    I don't want to overstudy the situation, but don't understand what the actual problem is. This excess "crap," what it is . . . Mtn. Dew?
