My new doctor wants me to be on 'A little medication as possible but enough to do what is needed.' Amen! It has been a goal of mine for some time, to reduce the medication that I am on. Of course it wasn't feasible before, but now that I am 'settled' here...
Last week I went to the doctor and she needed a little time to find out Swiss equivalents. Now, about a year ago I had a conversation with a pharmacist about the 'well known appetite stimulation' that went hand-in-hand with a higher dose of Pizotifen, one of my migraine meds. 'Never heard of it,'said she. The first thing my new doctor said to me today was 'We give this medication to stimulate the appetite.' I rest my case..... Anyway, it seems that magnesium is commonly used to treat migraines in CH, so I am going to give it a go. I am a bit worried about it though. Currently the migraines are very settled and I am very anxious about upsetting the applecart.
So, moving along, today I am going to meet
Sylvie . Not only is she the dispenser of all sorts of useful Swiss information, she also sent me a box of the best truffles I have ever tasted. I have a little gift for her, too - I hope she likes it!
Off to catch the bus but I will leave you with an image of.....Scotland (Camera card can't be put into this PC...).
