Dang 12 hour Non-Drowsy Sudafed. I could have followed that puppy up right there with a couple or three Benedryl's. Generally, when you take a sleeping pill it is in fact 50 mg of Diphenhydramine, a double dose of allergy medication. So, take two Benedryl's because they're 25 mg. Big guy like me, take 3 sometimes 4.
However I had three of these Pseudoephedrine Hydrocholrides in me. Now, unlike the Diphenhydramine that they put in other cold medicines or the ephedrine that they try to cook Meth out of. That or like Nyquil where they just use 25% alcohol. That would be the May cause Drowsiness cold medicine. If they want you to be Non Drowsy, they put caffeine in it. But this stuff is different, it doens't make you drowsy hence no caffiene listed on the box. Normally it has no effect. But I also started a blood pressure medication last month and although I don't see anything listed on it, I wonder if it isn't an interaction with that. Under times of heavy stress I'll not be able to sleep, little more than most folks, I'd be awake for days.
But I'm not stressed. It's possible I had my mind focused on the forum and learning new stuff. But when I layed down originally all I was thinking about was a warm, snuggley Grand Daughter and that's a time tested formula for sleep right there.
Anyways, at 2 pills I didn't get much relief. At 3 I was able to hear normally for the first time in almost two weeks. About to reduce that back to 2 as it's time now. Hopefully I'm over the hump.
Watched the quick Hammock build on Youtube, snuck an old sheet out of the pile in the closet, It's still a little short but fits nicer then the Nylon web. Thinking about sleeping in it tonight. Going to have to move my Eyebolts though. I just have enough distance where it's hanging BUT the treadmill is in the way of the TV. Bummer dude. And I have to let the air out of the air bed or my rear rubs it. Comfy though.
Problem with this stuff, as with all the cold medicines any more, is you have to talk to the Pharmacist as they keep it behind the counter at Walmart and they log your info, just in case your buying a box or two at every Walmart in town.
The learn how to make meth out of water we will all die of thirst to save ourselves.
