Hello, my name is Twindaddy and I’m medicated. I take Prozac on a daily basis. It is my ever-vigilant companion in my daily struggle with the depression demon. We fight the glorious fight together. Comrades in arms.
This past week I had to refill my sanity-in-a-bottle, and something is different. It’s the same medication, according to the label on the bottle, but the capsules are a different color and they…stink. Horribly. It’s an overwhelming stench which robs me of my breath every time I open the bottle.
It’s a noisomeness I can’t readily identify. A powerful, chemical-like smell. Like if I opened the bottle near an open flame the fumes would catch fire. And then I think…these things that smell so foul are going into my body. What are these capsules made of? What am I ingesting? Will these things come back out of my body smelling just as awful?
I’m pretty sure it’s the same medicine as I haven’t been feeling any differently or noticed any new side-effects. So what’s in the capsules is absolutely Prozac, but the capsule shells have been changed. I have to hold my breath while I open the bottle and take a pill out otherwise my breath gets taken from me by the horrid aroma wafting harmfully from my sanity-bequeething bottle.
I realize I could just head on over to the Google machine to find out what capsules are made of, and I may do that eventually, but if I did that now I wouldn’t be writing this quasi-entertaining post featuring the most fabulous paint graphic ever created.
