    What was their reaction? You could've told them that it was Sunday... see if they fall for that.

    Is the antibiotics for a chest infection? I know for fact some antibiotics have some really nasty side effects, I speak from experience.
    A.Yes. l wrote up my thoughts in the Ava Luxe thread.

    B. Also yes, but trust me, l'm a nurse! l always take a probiotic as well, which takes care of that little problem. And it's still preferable to a painful, violent cough that stops you sleeping.

    Hello all,

    I’m wearing Diptyque Olene today. The temperature will be a perfect 70 degrees. Lately during our evening walks, the air by an old farmhouse down the street is perfumed with orange blossoms and jasmine. Intoxicating!

    Have a good day.

    Is this for SOTD and SOTE respectively? I think just 2 of these alone is more than a handful.

    A: Read and written a response to it.

    B: Do you know of the antibiotic called Leviquin? I had this one prescribed to me by my doctor when I was seriously ill. This one is known to attack soft tissues specifically tendons. I don't recommend this to anyone unless its a last resort.

    Shocking de Schiaparelli -- for cold, stormy weather which might be one of our last opportunities here to break out the vintage cold weather heavy hitters. It might say "cologne" on the package, but this stuff walks the walk of an EdP.

    Teardrop
    , you have all my sympathies. I'm on the tail end of what sounds like an identical chest infection, and also had to break down and take antibiotics, for the first time in 15 years, but was afraid it might turn into pneumonia. I'd like to blame you for it if you weren't 4,000 miles away.

    Thanks, Cook.bot! Yes, l was afraid of pneumonia too, & this sucker wasn't going away on its own.

    N.CAL, it's known as Levofloxacin here, & we use it at work in the form of eye drops to treat corneal infections. lt's very different to the penicillin-based antibiotics that are generally used here for chest infections such as mine.

    The prank was very well recieved. Came home from work and yelled that I had brought them brownies, gave them brown paper Es, they laughed. They wouldn't buy the Sunday trick, that might work on me though...I wake up not knowing what day it is, most days.

    Unfortunately that was my case and believe me the illness lasted for months. It was the longest that I've ever been sick.

    Levofloxacin is the generic name for Levaquin I believe. I didn't know that it could be use in the form eye drops. Wouldn't the antibiotics eventually circulate throughout the entire body? In that case the patients would very likely observe the side effects of the antibiotics.

    Cook.bot did you have to take one of the Fluoroquinolone drug antibiotics?

    l have never heard of these kind of side effects from the eye drops, probably because the active ingredient is in a much lower concentration than in other forms.

    I hope those antibiotics help you turn the corner very quickly, Teardrop. Those coughs are awful. I'm in Rosarium today--seems I'm back to my floral roots.
