Allergies are creating digestive havoc for our GM

I mean seriously, the dude gets the runs, then spends over 2 hours on the toilet. I worry about dehydration for him.

Anywho (see, I used it again) from what we know his ability to use OTC medications is severely restricted by his other meds and potentially fatal interactions. Usually these meds aren’t too bad but our GM is “special” in the bad kind of way and his meds seriously don’t like him.

In other medication related news, I found my preferred sleep aid again at the Dollar General, the Jet Asleep 50 mg diphenhydramine with fewer buffers and inert ingredients to mess with the diphenhydramine putting me to sleep. The 50 mg pills for the sleep aid work better and faster than 3 or 4 of the 25 mg allergy pills even though both of them have the same diphenhydramine active ingredient. The difference is the allergy pills have ingredients that reduce the drowsy feeling as they take care of the histamine reaction caused by allergies, where the Jet Asleep pills are basically the diphenhydramine and stuff that makes it form a pill. If you are in a situation where falling asleep is not a problem the Jet Asleep is a better allergy pill too.

And since I have to go pay my phone bill today, I need to be taking that sleeping aid and some pain pills and hitting the sheets.
