i finally dragged myself to the doctor yesterday morning after 8 days of being sick sick sick. (which, to say, is not as severely as I thought I was) some surprises:
1. Pregnant women can take Robitussin. I wish I had known that last week.
2. Codeine is a cough suppressant. Also apparently it's the safest one for pregnant women.
3. Codeine is total crap. it suppresses your cough by sucking every available ounce of fluid out of your body. I think I drank 10 glasses of water last night. (all. night. long) But then it didn't clear my sinuses and, being unable to clear them, simply dried all the snot into cement so I couldn't breathe.
so a $20 copay and a $10 pharmacy charge so I could have yet another miserable night and no I don't really care how whiny I sound thank you very much. every time I cough I feel like the bones in my face are going to explode. the netti pot isn't even a match for these sinuses of death.
