Today's Tip: Here are some tips regarding medication use from Rosalie Devonshire, M.S.W., and Julie Kelly, M.S., R.N., from their book "Taking Charge of Fibromyalgia": -Never take your medications without fluids. Take a sip of water first and then the pill. -One of the possible side effects of tricyclics could be a dry mouth. A dry mouth for long periods can increase the risk of tooth decay, particularly in people with Sjogren's Syndrome, so do not forget to mention this to your doctor and dentist. -Do not put your meds in a medicine cabinet that will be exposed to hot, humid temperatures. It is not wise to leave them in your car or purse where they might be exposed to heat build-up. -Give up caffeine! It alters and interferes with your sleep pattern. Do not forget that there is caffeine in tea, chocolate, and cola drinks. Also, many over-the-counter pain and cold medications contain caffeine (check labels carefully). -Alcohol interferes with your sleep quality and does not mix with medications. -Nicotine can affect the effects of medications. -If you are just trying a new medication, ask for samples. Many FM patients complain that their drawers are filled with unused medications. (Source: Taking Charge of Fibromyalgia, by Julie Kelly, M.S., R.N., and Rosalie Devonshire, M.S.W.)
