I spent the better part of yesterday in the ER. I thought I had a kidney stone (sure felt like one!), but it turns out it’s only a particularly painful infection. So, I got some morphine and Zofran (for nausea, so the morphine wouldn’t make me puke) by IV, and came home with 'scripts for: Levaquin (powerful antibiotic), Darvocet (for pain), and promethazine (brand-name Phenergan).
The promethazine is an anti-nausea drug. And yet, there is a label on the side which reads “May take wtih food to lessen chance of stomach upset”. Heh.
Now, I’ve used this drug quite successfully in the past, so I know that it doesn’t upset my stomach (it was actually prescribed to keep the other drugs from upsetting my stomach), but that warning label? On an anti-nausea drug? It made me go :eek: and
So how’s that for mundane and pointless? I blame the drugs!
