Dosage concerns
« on: July 23, 2015, 12:06:55 AM »
So on top of the late seizure activity, I may have done one of two things by mistake

1. Overdosed. Not as bad as it sounds. I have mistakenly taken double doses before. Pharmacist said I should be fine. Go to the ER if I feel odd. It's an anti-convulsant.

2. Too little. This has happened before too. Pharmacist told me it should not cause a seizure missing one dose, and to not take the medicine if am unsure. Overdose is worse than underdose.  Less likely to cause seizure.

Pray that it does not cause problems. The biggest danger is a seizure due to underdosage here. This may all seem contradictory, but its not. Pharmacists know these things best.
The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.

Lord have mercy. St. Luke and St. Pantaleimon, pray for us. Warning: stories have mature content.

"Some people only feel good when they are praising the Lord." - Coptic bishop

Mt. 21:31 Jesus said to them, ÔÇťAssuredly, I say to you that tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you."

Lord, have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
