Before I continue, I need to point out that I've been on these pills for several years, taking them just before bed as prescribed by the docs. The three pills that I take every night are kept in weekly pill minder along with the bulk supply, in a drawer in the bathroom. The other three prescription pills are kept in a separate weekly am-pm-minder, in a kitchen cabinet. (Knowing how everyone thinks, I'll tell you that the seventh med is a topical gel that gets applied once a day to my thighs; the eighth is insulin that gets injected once a day; and the nineth is another injection that helps control my diabetes and appetite).
Anyway, here's what I gleaned from the info sheets:
One of the pre-bed meds, whose name looks like it means water-chloride is a diuretic and due to increased need to urinate should be taken in the morning - hmmm, sort explains the middle-of-the-night trips to the bathroom.
The other med, which is used to treat asthma, has a name that I thought started with MONK.....anyway, it's to be taken right before going to bed. No big deal, it's one of three that I take at bed time. Except now I learned that you're not suppose to store it in the bathroom!
Moral of this: If you've gone this long without reading the info sheets, don't start reading them now. Makes me wonder what else I'm doing wrong.....
