Seemed like this one at 3:15 a.m. is lasting a long time. I guess it's been 30 minutes without a change in level. The level is maybe at a 5 or 6.
Got another one at 9 a.m. that lasted until maybe 3 p.m. or so, a 1 or 2 level.
Saw Dr. Aronoff today.
Medications: Vioxx 50mg (rofecoxib) -- Anti inflammatory
Atenolol 50mg -- beta blocker
Took a Vioxx at 1:00 -- low level (1-2) headache that he had since morning went away. Maybe coincidentally, maybe not.
Also got more Tricor for high triglycerides.
DOSAGE: Vioxx (samples) once a day. Supposed to work immediately without drowsiness or side effects. Has prescription that he can fill if he likes it. Take Vioxx with food.
Atenolol beta blocker -- take once a day. May cause drowsiness or dizziness. Supposed to take at a.m. per doctor's orders. Pain preventer. May take up to 2 weeks to work. Lowers blood pressure and reduces pain.
Will take all 3 pills (Vioxx, Atenolol, and Tricor) @ 7 p.m. approximately with some food. Daily.
