Hey y'all! Im back! Misses you all sooo much! Can't wait to hear how everyone has been...
Now, my topic
MY MEDS WERE STOLEN!!!! Really i just don't know what to do! Suggestions please... here's the story:
I had been living with my mother for a few months. Every month i would wind up short on my meds. First 3 days short... Then finally one month 50 pills short! So I have no idea who was dipping in the meds... but considering i had a 15 year old sister living with me, i bought a padlock for my big lock box, and put it in there... problem solved
I recently moved into a new house, with my cousin as my new roommate. She suffers similar back issues as me, and we spend lots of time sharing horror stories about our conditions.
My current medications are:
Norco 10/325mg 3x a day
Soma 350mg 2x a day
Klonopin 1mg 2x a day
Topomax 25mg 1x a day *new
Baclofen 20mg 3x a day *new
My doctor would like me to change over to baclofen from soma. And says that the topomax when taken daily will reduce nerve constriction which in turn will prevent migraine, back/hip pain (thats a whole other thread)
So Thursday night i was having major panic/anxiety/rage issues (i believe intensified by new meds) I got in a fight with my little sister, took a klonopin, and left. For the rest of the night, i was WAY out of it. Falling asleep out of nowhere... (even while going to the bathroom) The next morning, just as bad. I even blacked out. I got my 3 morning pills out of my room, sat on the couch with them in my hand, and fell asleep. When i woke back up, i looked in my hand, and only had 2.
I searched around the floor, and couldn't find the 3rd pill. Figured i must have never taken it out of the bottle in the first place. All day at work Friday, i kept nodding off... any time i let my eyes close for more than a split second, i was asleep. I decided to count my pills when i got home, just to make sure i didn't lose that one. I had only taken the med for 6 days... so i should have had around 24 pills. I had ELEVEN. I went and counted all my other pills... 30 Klonopin missing, and about 10 Norco.
My cousin said that when i left, she went outside to smoke, so my little sister was in the house alone for a while. What do i do? Im really scared that she or some other kid is going to get really hurt. They dont even know what Topomax is. If she had ANY IDEA how terrible it made me feel, she wouldnt have taken it. Its not really top on the list of hot pills to take is it?
Thank goodness i decided to stop taking the topomax, and the rest of my pills were in my purse. I cant go to my doctor and tell her my pills were stolen. And what happens if some kid gets hurt? Should i report this to the police?
