ridiculous med schedule

Originally uploaded by alibee09


This is Nicky’s med schedule until Sunday, when he has his checkup. Hopefully we’ll be able to drop a couple of them — like the aspirin (anti-clotting) and metronidazole (stomach issues). The pepcid (antacid) and carafate (coat GI tract) can stop when we stop the prednisolone (a steroid that is suppressing his immune system which needs to be tapered off but which can cause ulcers), the doxycycline (antibiotic to treat the possible infection causing the immune response) is probably going to stop whenever we finish the course, and he might need to be on the cyclosporine (immunosuppressant) for life.
