the friday five - meds

1. Do you take any daily prescription medications?
nope.

2. Do you take any daily OTC (over the counter) medications?
I'm taking some allergy meds now. We've had some unseasonably warm weather lately and it made me sniffy and I blame nature. This always happens in Kansas, some gutsy trees are like "SPRING NOW? YAAAAY!" then we get some march/april ice storm and that'll teach 'em.

3. Do you take vitamins?
nope. I did when I was pregnant, but now that it's just me I'm sure this steady diet of coffee and quiktrip roller grill taquitos will suffice.

4. When you are sick, do you take OTC remedies or immediately go to your doctor?
OTC. In my desk at work I have a steady supply of zinc and vitamin C lozenges for the occasional cold.

5. Do you take aspirin?
for headaches, which I get rarely, maybe once or twice a month.

Good for you! Allergies are worrisome here because of all the rain. People who have never had them before are already sneezing.

Vitamin C does absolutely nothing for colds, FYI.

Vitamin D, on the advice of an endocrinologist; lack of it (common here in more polar latitudes) is probably the cause of my kidney stones.

fwiw, "once or twice a month" doesn't sound like "rarely" to me.

Are they stress headaches? Otherwise two a month sounds like a lot...
