I read the instructional leaflet inside my medicine. It said “Take one 500mg tablet every 8 hours. For extreme cases take one 1000mg tablet every 12 hours.” I have been prescribed one 1000mg tablet every 8 hours, some mistake maybe? I feel dizzy and I’m coming out in hives. All in the cause of getting well. Otherwise I feel fine. Though I could really do with a beer.
The pharmacist said “take one every 8 hours, with meals.” Now, I didn’t think too hard at the time but on the bus on the way back it occurred to me that I’d have to start eating meals at 8am, 4pm and 12am or else start going to bed at some ridiculous hour. Screw that.
