GP visit

Pills, a pill bottle and a hand with 2 tablets
One to be taken three times a day … but there wasn’t a photo with just one. (Photo from stock.xchng.)

I saw the GP this morning at the East Craigs Medical Practice, a Dr S. Abushal who was lovely. He listened to my symptoms (dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, sore ears) and told me that there is a viral bug going around just now with symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and sore ears. Sounds like I have that, then.

Sounds like I have that now!

I’ve been prescribed Prochlorperazine which according to the Drug Digest website:

PROCHLORPERAZINE helps to control nausea and vomiting that can occur after surgery, or with the treatment of cancer (chemotherapy). Prochlorperazine also treats psychological or mental disorders. Another use of prochlorperazine is the treatment of non-psychotic anxiety (nervousness). Generic prochlorperazine tablets are available.

Sounds … like a delightful drug. I was told that it would help with the dizziness. And now obviously also with my latent psychological and mental disorders!

I’ve been told to take things easy for a week and get as much rest and sleep as I can. Good timing! Well done me.
