So today, I got the Mantoux test.

Now, it's big...

As soon as I got home, I slept...

Was wanting to read as I always do, I let myself give in to weakness and dozed off.

Woke up, felt refreshed.

So, about drugs...

Diclofenac is Olfen

It comes in 100mg tablets

I saw a new tab today. It's pink.

So I thought, I need to know about Amitriptyline, methadone and so on. It's better to commit things to memory than to always looking up things in a book. Faster.

I read how one died because his respiration dropped. I want to know when it is appropriate to withhold meds. It's like you talk with your co-workers, and I raised my concern that the patient doesn't look good, and we're trying to get a consensus of whether to give or not to give, and since the medicine is ordered, they say, give it. So we gave it. Sometimes, being too fearful makes me see situations more problematic than it should be. So nothing happened, patient slept, woke up the next day.
I need to know the signs.
I need to know the finesse of when not to give it.
