Just look at all those meds.
ALL those stinkin’ meds…
Trevy is currently on a cocktail trio of Anti Seizure Drugs…
He takes each at varying doses twice daily. Once with breakfast. Once after bath.
He’s on Miralax for the…ummmm…poopy issues that are oh so common for children with low muscle tone and toxin cocktails with side effects which can contribute to low muscle tone and poopy issues in general. I’m trying to figure out the right dose for him. Seems like it’s either too loosey goosey (TMI…I know) or too const-y (do I really have to S.P.E.L.L. it out?). And yes…we’ve tried Activia. FiberOne bars too. I figured I’d go ahead and answer that now.

He’s on a multi-vitamin. Cause, you know, it’s important to keep him healthy-ish. I just bought the huge generic chewy ones from BJs.
Also…I add an Omega 3-6-9 to his school sippy cup daily. Or at least the goal is daily. There are rumors out there in “homeopathic” world that Omegas help improve speech and cognition. I can’t say that we’ve really noted a change one way or the other. But I figure it can’t hurt.
Oh. And before I forget. We’ve just added another med to the mix. Although this one is itty bitty. Cause that’s how perscription eye drops come nowadays. See puffy little eyes below. All together now…awwwwwwwww. And those ain’t nothing either! At one point they were swollen almost shut!
Because we totally need one more thing to deal with!
Our current set up looks like this…
That basket is actually ginormous. Once upon a time, everything fit into the basket nice n’ tidy. Almost even cute. But as he’s grown so have the dosages which means the bottles are getting ever bigger. One of his scripts is even TWO huge bottles strong now! And all this means we have overflow.
Overflow = Clutter
I cannot stand clutter. I despise clutter. Clutter makes my skin crawl. And my voice mean. Seriously. I go from normal to flippin’ out in sixty seconds or less when my house is cluttered. It’s not healthy! For any of us. Mind you…it’s not your clutter that bothers me. It’s mine! So please don’t go crazy cleaning before I come over! Cross my heart…it’s okay! So now I’m the hunt for a better way to store all this crap. I don’t want them in the cabinet. Because I’m also lazy. And need things to be easy peasy access. Especially when they’re used so often. Another point to make is – we have a cozy (read: teensie) kitchen. So I don’t want anything that takes up too much counter space either. I’m open to shelves. If there’s a way to cute it up.
I’m hoping someone( s) out there has figured out a cute way to store their little home-based pharmacy and can share a link in comments??
with a cherry on top?!
