Well, the day is finally here...I've passed my blood tests and my online questions and I've just picked up my Claravis perscription from the pharmacy...
I'm a little nervous with the size of the pill...I HATE swallowing pills, and was told some of the generics are smaller than others. I guess I will have to suck it up and get over it...I've attached a picture for anyone curious.
I am starting at 40mg, once a day...I've been told this is a pretty average dosage for an average sized person...my doctor says I will be on the medication for 4.5 months...give or take.
I am getting married on the beach in October...so I'm a little nervous about the "staying out of the sun" issue...considering I will be at the beach for 2 weeks and will most likely still be on the medication! But my doctor says it shouldn't be a problem...as long as I don't allow myself to burn.
I often have allergic reactions to medication...I break out into sever hives, so I am hoping this doesn't happen to me!! It doesn't seem as though this is a common side effect so I should be OK.
Does anyone take this with or without food? I was told it doesn't matter, but I am nervous so any input would be great!!
WILL BE IN TOUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
