The directions on the box say "Take 2 tablets every 4-6 hours. Do not exceed 4 doses in 24 hours." Yeah right. My body metabolises sudafed so weirdly. If I take two of those little red cherry bombs it makes my heart pound really hard. Not fast. Just hard. It becomes a physical sensation and I can hear it beating against my ear drums. It also makes them ring something fierce. Unfortunately, it's also the only thing that puts a dent in my head cold, another first for 2008. Yippee! (not!)
So I only take them one at a time. But then they only last about 3.5 hours. *sigh* It's fine during the day time, but at night, once I wake up (which I always do), I lay in bed staring at the ceiling. If I close my eyes, my thoughts, which should be peaceful, drifty, and sludgy, instead, crash and roil like the pounding surf against a cliff base. They become something I can see when I shut my eyes except they are words in images swirling in my mind. Shattered bits and pieces of thoughts going nowhere but tumbling about in a crashing, never ending jumble.
No wonder they make meth out of this stuff, if just one little red dot does that to me. sheesh!
Note to self: orange juice for breakfast.
