Intervention Update

I wanted to write a medical update from the other night. I’ve been off Jardiance for 4 days now. I have 150mg of Fluconazole in my system. They gave me a one pill dosage, instead of the 5 day treatment regimen.

I also have a topical creme that I use at night before bed, it’s a little messy, but it is what it is. I’ve cleared up and my skin condition is getting better by the day, back to the normal state of personal care.

It is vitally important for me to stress that certain side effects of some drugs can cause long lasting problems, if not caught right away. At the beginning I did not attribute the problems I was having to my drug regimen, because, as I said then, I’ve not had major issues come up before so I really did not pay attention, until the problems occurring began to really increase.

People on large drug regimens for their various medical issues, should really know what the flip side of good drugs can be. My issues, those dealing with genital issues are of paramount importance, for both Men and Women. One does not want to allow genital issues to become exacerbated and become painful and problematic.

If genital issues re not caught right away, both men and women can have long lasting issues internally and externally, that might not get resolved, hence, immediate attention to situations that have grown out of control.

I don’t usually pay attention to drug commercials on television, because usually, they show a drug then rattle off all the side effects throughout the commercial, and usually I roll my eyes.

When a drug commercial tells us that death is a possibility when you take said drug, I pay attention. You never know how one is going to react to the myriad of drugs on the market.

It was good that I had seen the Jardiance commercial multiple times, because at one point I was listening well to the side effect list.

And that saved my bacon, so to speak.

I think we need to pay attention to drug commercials if we are taking or pondering taking a new drug. That little 30 second commercial might just save your life.

Buyer Beware …
