    Boy do I know how that goes. Added a new med yesterday and today I spent most of the day on the couch in a total fog. Had to go and schedule a car service today and couldn't even remember what I needed to tell the service person. I so envy people who don't get all these side effects from meds like I do. I see so many people on here who list several medications that they are taking and they seem to do fine on them. I can hardly take Benadryl without a side effect.
