More Pills

A long session with the visiting GP and a young trainee doc yesterday afternoon.  Over an hour.  I had a full ECG, blood and urine tests.  Results to be discussed in two weeks time.  She increased my antidepressant dose 100% and added a new drug to my regimen; Pregabalin, for neuropathic pain.  It seems that most of the pain I feel in my knees and legs is actually caused by the degeneration of my spine.  I checked on the web and learned Pregabalin is also indicated for a few other conditions, including generalized anxiety disorder. I wonder if that influenced her decision to prescribe it.
On the upside, here in the outback all this is free including the medications.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
