Posted on 06/13/2005 7:35:58 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
Are there any pharmacologists out there? I will probably need your professional help in sorting out the MANY mood-altering meds listed in this DUmmie THREAD titled, What meds do you take? Since the DUmmies have been spending much of their time escaping into an alternate reality, it is interesting to see what powerful drugs they have to ingest to accomplish this task. For example, I am figuring that it must take some POWERFUL acid to alter the DUmmie mind to the extent that they BEEEELEEEEEVE that John Kerry was inaugurated on Jan. 20. High drug dosage is so common in DUmmieland that I am surprised they havent established a DUmmie Pharmacy to distribute the meds necessary to enter their own alternate reality. The only med your humble correspondent takes currently (other than prescription blood pressure pills) is the non-prescription and VERY SMOOOOOTH slow aged Flor de Caña rum. Perhaps the DUmmies should think of switching to Flor de Caña rum. Not only would they pleasantly mellow out, but a few of them might actually relax enough to get a slight bit of common sense in their system. So let us now view the pharmacologically mind-altered DUmmie posts in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, anxiously awaiting the warm glow of his evening dosage of slow aged Flor de Caña, is in the [brackets]:
What meds do you take?
[As mentioned above, only a couple of glasses of slow aged Flor de Caña rum per evening. Right now my prescription is for the 7 year old rum but perhaps someday I will become worthy enough qualify for the 12 year old Flor de Caña rum or maybe, just maybe, I can even think about aspiring to the 18 year old Flor de Caña rum. However, let us now view the LOOONG list of mind altering meds you DUmmies are desperately ingesting to kill the pain of our current REPUBLICAN reality.[
Don't answer if it is too personal; I understand. I have some Clonazepam on hand for when I get asthma/anxiety attacks. .5 mg is very weak... but I'm rocking 2 of the suckers right now so I'm at 1mg as we speak. Fairly relaxing since it is a benzodiapene.
[When the pain of seeing George W. Bush in the White House becomes too great, just pull the axe off the wall and break open that emergency bottle of benzodiapene.]
here we go... i hate drug names... so... unfriendly...minocycleine so i dont get all pimple-y and zyrtec so i can breathe during the months where everythign isnt frozen over.
[Zyrtec is also great for helping you to perform simple body functions during the months when your mind is frozen over.]
I take tons of medicine.Here's the list: Paxil for depression,Xanax for anxiety/panic attack,Dalmane to sleep,Ventolin for asthma,Trazodone as anti-depressor and sleeping aid and Advair for asthma.Plus some generic painkillers for chronic pain.I'm only 37 but my grand father who is over a 100 is in better shape than me.Pretty depressing isn't it.
[May I forward that EXTENSIVE med list over to Pied Piper Pitt since he hasnt slept since April due to extreme anxiety over defrauding his fellow DUmmies by cheerleading them into donating to Andy Stephensons non-existent pancreatic cancer operation?]
Oh geez, where to begin. I am an exercise in polypharmacy.
Synthroid for hypothyroidism
Topamax for mood stabilization and migraine
Verapamil for migraine prophylaxis
Imitrex and Amerge PRN as migraine abortives
Vicodin PRN as a migraine rescue med
Percocet PRN for menstrual cramps
I also take various OTCs as needed and daily vitamin/mineral/other supplements.
[Perhaps you should simply cover your body with a giant prophylaxis to blot out the unpleasant reality of a REPUBLICAN White House, Congress, and Judiciary.]
just a handful
Diclofenac--arthritis prednisone--arthritis methtrexatearthritis
Verapamil--blood pressure Dyrenium--water pill
[When Cheney is elected in 08 you might want to consider adding cyanide to that list.]
migraine & allergy meds:
singulair (normally prescribed for asthma, which i do not have)
petadolex (an herb)
zomig (i rotate between zomig and imitrex when my body adjusts)
stadol (narcotic, only if zomig fails)
[Methinks that on Election Night of 2008, youre going to have to TRIPLE your med dosage for migraine.]
methadone- 60-70mg daily for chronic pain
flexeril- 50-60mg daily
prednisone- 10mg every other day
ambien- occasionaly for help sleeping
[Methadone? Isnt that a med that is supposed to substitute for heroin? In any case, I think you will be shooting up heroin directly into your arm on Election Night 2008 in an attempt to kill the pain. But dont worry. Susan Estrich will be in even WORSE shape than you.]
I'm sure if I went and got checked out I'd be prescribed half a dozen or so medications for depression and anxiety, but I prefer to wallow in my own misery.
[Thats the spirit! Face the incredible pain of this countrys dominant conservatism without resorting to any of those pansy meds.]
I Got You All Beat:
Daily: Cozaar, Tolinase, Actos, Lasix, Lopid, Elavil, Buspar, Topamax, Vicodin, Lomotil, QVar, Atrovent, Albuteral
As Needed: Norco, Fiorinal, Maxalt, Imitrex Stat Dose, Phenergran, Ditropan, Rantidine, Flexeril, Soma
Often on: Cipro and/or Nitrofuratoin
Anti-depressants - for me - all seem to make sex less enjoyable, which in turn causes even more depression. Is this just me, or do other people experience the same thing? The problem here in the UK is that doctors are overworked and far less inclined to spend time tweaking meds until they get things just right for a patient, which I find incredibly frustrating
[But but I thought Britain had this WONDERFUL nationalized health care system that all you DUmmies seem to be boosting! And now you tell me that the doctors in the UK nationalized health care system dont have much time for their patients. I am so depressed hearing this that I need to pop a prozac.]
i was on Clonazepam, Trazadone, zoloft, valium, wellbutrian and several others. I had really bad depression after the birth of my child and my inlaws didn't help. They told me that I was crazy and making it up cause I wanted attention. I went to several docs and they had me drugged up. I was so high that I was almost drooling. I finally got sick of it all and quite all them. I really do need an anti-depressant but I am afraid to be a zombie again.
[Newsflash, DUmmie earthmama! Youre STILL drooling.]
I don't like the idea of being hooked on chemicals for life, basically. What if there's a terrorist attack/nuclear winter and I can't get it? What if there's a recall because it's really ruining my liver (or whatever)? I wish I could find some kind of natural remedy, or be cured or something. But it's way easier to take my medicine and be on to other things.
[My suggestion is to build a vast underground fallout shelter to store all your meds.]
Ziac (keeps my BP down) Cymbalta (an SSRI)
Gabapentin (add'l depression treatment)
Prevacid (keeps my gorge from rising, all you Shakespeare fans)
I used to take Vioxx. Rasser frasser... I now take Aleve and Tylenol as if they were M&Ms. I honestly don't know what I'd prefer -- increased risk of heart attack, or this f*cking pain.
[Look at the bright side of it, DUmmie bertha katzenengel. At least you are no longer a Vioxx addict. Now take two Tylenols to kill your f*cking pain.]
Duragesic, Lortab, Soma, Naproxen and Ambien...There's more. Can't remember them all for obvious reasons.
[The obvious reason being that your meds have killed your long and short term memory or would be able to produce your extensive med list.]
Let me know if you want on the DUmmie FUnnies PING List.
Meds, meds, meds...top 10?
I can understand needing a medication or two at some point in life.
I pity people who go online even anonymously and engage in some morbid 'pissing contest' about whose polypharmacy is most intense or pathetic.
Yikes - these people need to DETOX and fast!
Top ten! w00t!
Top ten! w00t!
Something about medication contests that seem weird...
Can you possibly imagine an FR thread like this? LOL
Top 10? No meds here lol
No! Maybe what I can take now that they have vioxx off the market type thread, but never a "I take more meds than you, nyah, nyah neener-neener-neener" thread....
And these people have the temerity to bash pharmacuetical companies?
It does, doesn't it?
These are always funny, the medication threads on du. Is it any wonder that so many dummies need such pharmaceuticals?
I'm not at all surprised by these lists. It really proves they are mentally ill and no drugs will cure their psychosis!
This is hilarious!
They are basement dwelling drug attacks - as we suspected all along!
Sometimes they work, and sometimes they don't.
Clean living, I guess... I take an occasional allergy mediciation (Allegra clone) during peak allergy times, and Advil once in a while for muscle stiffness, but other than that, my drug of choice is a little rum or gin mixed with fruit juice once in a while.
Good grief! No wonder they're all nuts! All those chemicals swimming around in their bloodstream, and they're worried about pollution? They are so internally polluted it's crazy!
It makes me wonder if the web address for DU is printed on the antidepressent bottles! They know their market and that is the most efficient way to spend ad dollars.
Must be related to my anti-bash-the-teenager-over-the-head-with-the-cast-iron-skillet meds...
Thanks for the ping, PJ! I can't believe they have an entire thread about this.
DU == Club Meds
We've got plenty of "formicologists," i.e., those who study the ants in our DUmmie Ant Farm (formicary).
They do this routinely? A monthly feature maybe? LOL!
I was thinking the same thing. Some of those people are on so much depression medication, it is a wonder they can function. Some will make you feel like a zombie. Maybe that explains their posts. I noticed one was on a very strong pain drug plus everything else. Do they work?
This is quite obviously related to their usual comments about how much happier libs are than us conservatives. Hell, when you spend half your waking hours drugged to the gills, I'm surprised they don't just float off the ground.
Wow I'm speechless....these people are why our health insurance rates are skyrocketing. And for the record, I take ZERO meds.
P-J is not kidding about this; it is always handy, reading posts in DUmmieland, with a pharmaceutical directory at hand.
It is pathetic, really.
Coming from a medical family (although no medical professional myself), I have always observed that 90% of medications would not have to be taken if one simply changes conduct and behavior.
Well, the DUmmies aren't the same mindset; they DON'T want to change conduct and behavior--they want to sit in their basements rather than getting jobs; they want to munch on junk food rather than getting exercise; they want to be angry and hateful rather than mellow.
They want to do what they want to do, but aren't willing to pay the consequences.....and everything that one does has consequences, good or bad, foreseen or unforeseen.
I think most of them are on low grade discount crack.
It seems like every few days someone would mention their meds and it would become a sort of psychoactive pharmaceutical olympics, with each vying to take home the honors of most meds taken.
Wow. I thought these nutty Libs were the clean living, organic, vegan crowd. These idiots are drowning in meds. I guess it has to do with their innate need to be miserable.
Maybe Grandpa didn't sit around all day convincing himself that his country is the worst place on earth, responsible for all the ills that befall mankind, and have such a low self-esteem.
Maybe Grandpa knew how to knuckle down and make something of himself and when things didn't go right he looked to himself FIRST to see if the cause wasn't sitting right there at home instead of running to blame somebody else.
Maybe you're a whiney loser and ought to wise up before you die and end up being nothing else BUT a whiney loser.
Guess who's paying for most of these pills.
Whenever I need help sleeping, I take a nice dose of Pittprolix.
Several of those dingbats listed "Soma" as a drug they're taking. That isn't even a real drug from legitimate pharmaceutical companies! It was a "mental vacation drug" featured in the popular book Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. The people in that book would pop Soma pills and then engage in casual sexual relations with a variety of partners.
Some of those Dummies are taking more than ten medications focused on sleeping/anxiety/panic/mood enhancement/depression. Holy cow, no wonder they're so messed-up in the head! They need to get out to the country, breathe some fresh mountain air, and detoxify themselves for two or three weeks. They might be able to get a grip on life afterwards.

Why were you so critical of the other poster? You do not know if she/he has any kind of health problems. Just hold judgement if you do not have all the facts.
This one is divulging his/her bathroom problems! EEEWWWWW!
What's really depressing is that I'm probably paying for his Buzz! Jack Daniels anyone?
Holy mackeral, they're taking Vicodin daily? I did that once after breaking my knee, and it turned me into a slug! Makes you DULL! I won't even pretend to know what all that other crap is.
Me, I have 3 advil once or twice per week when the yard work catches up with me. But that's because I have 1.2 acres of fruit trees, grass and vegetables. (Lots of Round-Up!)
My fiend Blanche took Lasix,but it just made her wanna horse around.
