Hi, I hope everyone is having a good day! Just wanted to let you know that if you don't see me on here for a few days, its because I'm taking it easy for a few days. I've been pretty weak lately and my homehealth nurses told me to slow down for awhile. Plus my left hand has alot of carpal tunnel syndrome pain in it. I've been dealing with some infections too so that is making me weaker but it will get better.

Hi Sadie ,

That is not something that any of us like to hear. Do take care of yourself and get your strength back. I will keep you in my thoughts tonight.

Take care, Everyone.

Sadie:

If you're dealing with multiple doctors, please make sure each is aware of your medication prescribed by all.

I became totally fatigued and virtually stopped eating for a month which developed in anemia. Now it becomes aware it was the antibiotic I was taking (Zyvox) in conjunction with taking Methotrexate without being being prescribed folic acid to be taken along with it.

Took nearly a month, but since stopping the antibiotic, taking two Centrums a day and starting folic acid, I'm feeling somewhat better; at least I'm eating now.

Hi, Sadie. As the others said, do take your rest when you need it. I hope you are feeling better soon.



Tru, watch out doubling up on the multivitamin complex - they are designed to be taken as one per day. You may be risking overdosing on some of them if you take two per day.
Warm wishes,

Hi Jefa:

I know about the vitamins. I asked him on Monday if I could cut it down to one, and he said absolutely no.

To me, the least pills, the better.
