> Sid,
> I have taken so many different cocktails in the last 30 months that it boggles the mind... or unboggles it? I was digging through the box of meds looking for some cipro yesterday and came across a graveyard of successful and less-than-successful trials. There's always the $900 worth of geodon capsules, for instance...

I've got quite a bit of abilify just collecting dust...geez what a waste
You've got to love the names they give them.
Abilify...sounds so optimistic doesn't it?
Zoloft....from the depths of despair to "lofty" heights?

and then there are their funny shapes and colors
I like the effexor xr capsules the best...I like to shake it like a tiny little maraca only it has little time released bits in it instead of what maracas generally have inside
and my happy beddy bye little pink seroquels...
so small yet SO sedating

> I was waiting at the pharmacy for over an hour once (to pick up an antibiotic, of all unlikely things) and I got to overhear the Rx that were being dispensed. One woman came up to the counter requesting her Rx for ativan, the next one for valium, and the man after her for ambien.

you know I sometimes get a little worried that they'll say the name of the medication out loud. I once had a coworker behind me when the pharmacist mentioned the name of the med I was picking up- effexor, "thanks pharma-guy...thanks"

One time, on the way to a conference, I met this lovely woman and her psychologist husband who were headed toward the same city, but for a different conference.
I met up with them again coincidentally in the airport heading back home. He had gone to some mental health conference of some kind and was toting a "seroquel" branded bag of some kind (courtesy of the conference no doubt).
"Oh, I said, nice bag."
him: "Well..you know what THAT is for don't you?"
me: "yeah" I responded knowingly
the implicit message: "it's for the "crazies" dontcha know?"

goodnight, so sleepy
