Hi everyone, not been around recently, which I suppose is good news that life is finally getting back on track, well it was anyway. I have not been well the last couple of days and the doc is 95% sure it's shingles (only 2 spots so far) and has given me some tablets to take Aciclovir, she did say they may make you more dizzy than normal. . . mmm. . . so now caught do I risk the tablets and try to curtain this horrid pain from the shingles , and a set back in the dizziness stakes or shall I try and sit the shingles out?
What would you do?
I say take the tablets. Mind you, it may really cause dizziness, but notice how she said the word "may cause". I am understanding that when the testing is done on the pills, they have to chart EVERYTHING the tester feels, and then it goes on the "side effects" column. If the docs don't do this I understand that suits could be filed. Who knows, you may experience no dizziness!!! Give it a try, you could always stop the med if it is too bad. Make sure you aren't chalking the dizzy up to the pill when in fact it may just be the anxiety.
The shingles are horrible and I hope the pill will bring you some relief.
Jayne I am really sorry you are dealing with this after all you have been through. I say take the tablets. You might not feel any extra dizzyness. In addition, I think it might get rid of it a bit faster.
I'm so sorry to hear you're having to deal with this...BOO! I think you are definitely doing the right thing by taking the pills though. You are awesome, and you will get through it! You've been through some awful stuff before, you can totally do it now
