willing to work and/or completely whore myself for...



for the past two weeks my allergies and sinuses have been killing me. at first i cranked myself up on sudafed and it worked for a season. then i added the walgreen's brand of claritin to my cocktail and it carried me along for a few more days. but sometime yesterday morning my cocktail simply stopped working, leaving me phlegm filled and completely miserable. fortunately at that point my co-worker jacque stepped in with a hit of benadryl and ever since the sudafed/claritin/benadryl cocktail i've been imbibing has left me feeling fine and flying high.

man i love drugs. love them.

Oooh, nice. My own sinuses are just starting to crank up again. Remind me of your cocktail when I'm in the throes of misery.

will do. the only small side effects i've noticed so far is a little tingling in the hands and a small impairment of motor skills. but i think that's a rather small price to pay for a dry nose.

add to that list just a smidgen of diarrhea. but it’s still a small price.

Mine are cranking up whenever it's damp out so I'm thinking it's mold. This could be why I had such issues when it came to raking wet piles of leaves out of the garden wall when I was a kid, every spring.

I get too sleepy with Benadryl--hence why it makes a great sometime sleeping pill.

Keep in mind in some places, they are now making you have to get it at the pharmacy-it's not a prescription pill but too many damn teenagers are using it to get high so now they have to hide it out back.

Gentry, do be careful. The small price you pay for the dry nose, causing you to have a little diarrhea, off motor skills, more zip to your zing...can medically mess you up BIG TIME!...all because of the "D" in the type of Benedryl you are taking. Been there, can't use it anymore, those pearly gates would be alot closer if I did.
