No, I'm not on cortisone drops, I stopped sometime in March. It was during this time that I started having all of the severe symptoms affecting my overall system, I do drops for glaucoma and one of them are beta blockers. I started closely tracking my symptoms after meds. I wiil do the drug interaction checker.
Here is today:
8:00 am woke up dizzy/nausea drank water
8:30 ate oatmeal, 1/2 banana and candied ginger for nausea, more water with about 100 mg of magnesium
9:00 took Lysine 1000 mg and Vitamin D 2000 mg
9:45 nausea began to subside
10:00 took 7.5 mg of Celexa (3.75 ml) ate half a banana. 1/2 cup of milk and some almond butter
10;30 much milder symptoms than yesterday mild palpitations and some increase in eye and mouth dryness. Dizziness much better at this point
11 am had black tea with cream and a glass of water at coffeehouse. Some mild discomfort (sinus pressure, light headness when talking)
1;30-2:30 light lunch and more talking
