Close Call...

So, uh... I may have nearly tried to kill myself without knowing it. I generally take sleep aids to help me get a full night of rest (or an approximation of it), though I haven't bothered to in the last couple days. Now, with this whole bout of food poison, I've been taking Imodium AD. Turns out there's a moderate risk of a drug interaction between the two and it has been linked with causing a fatal complication in an otherwise healthy patient before. This is something I did not know until a few seconds ago.

As I was about to take the Unisom and go to bed, I thought about how the liquid version of Imodium AD has a little bit of alcohol in it (0.5%, much like NyQuil), which may not do so well with the sleep aid. I actually couldn't find the listing for the liquid version, so I still don't know if that would be the case, but the drugs themselves are problem enough, apparently.

So, until I no longer need the Imodium AD, I'm going to have to try and get some sleep the old fashioned way... or just hope that the 0.5% alcohol helps enough on its own...

In review: Mixing drugs is bad, kids, so don't do it if you're not an actual doctor.
