I'll do whatever you say...just give me the drugs.

Don't let your reluctance to stand in line at the pharmacy counter and sign in blood and swear on your firstborn's life that you are not running a meth lab convince you to buy the "Sudafed PE" still available in the regular aisle. It doesn't work. I gave it a shot. I took it, along with about 6 Aleve yesterday and my sinus headache barely budged. This morning I took it again, but when my cheekbones were still screaming and throbbing two hours later, I marched across the street to the drugstore, presented my driver's license and happily signed on the dotted line for my beloved generic pseudoephrine hydrochloride. And mere moments later...sweet, sweet relief. I'll never try the easy way out again. At least when it comes to my decongestant needs.


don't call me MA'AM said...

That made me giggle... and it reminds me of that dumb Claritin ad on TV -- "Thanks, Claritin, for not changing your formula. We'll go to the counter for you any day." bleh

Hope you feel better soon!
