At My Age

At my age, I take four prescription medications when I go to bed and four over-the-counter pills each morning. Dealing with constipation has been my biggest problem. After I supposedly added stool softener to the mix, my problem appeared to clear up nicely. My overall reaction was positive as I shifted from irregularity to regularity. I take the morning tablets as soon as I get up while drinking a whole bottle of water before I have my one daily cup of coffee. For some reason, earlier this week, I looked at my medicine bottles, lined up at the rear area of my computer desktop. There they were: Sentry Senior, the multivitamin & multi-mineral supplement; Vitamin C 500 mg; Geri-kot, natural vegetable laxative; and of course, the stool softener. However, when I turned the stool softener bottle around to read the label, I found not what I expected. I found Sleep Tabs. No wonder I had been so sleepy during the day lately. I have since substituted B complex tablets for the Sleep Tabs.
