How To Take Medication Safely – And Avoid Fillers

GUYS!! (particularly the sick ones)

I’m sorry this took me 3 years to realize but I finally figured out how to take meds without reacting to the fillers. I’m typing this out while getting my hair done so it’s going to be fast and to the point. I needed to share it though because this has been a HUGE problem for Dad and I and I’m super excited I figured it out. Even though I should have earlier.

How do we, the people who react to every little stupid thing take pain killers? Anti-nauseants? Anything to help with the suffering that is life? Just kidding, my life isn’t suffering anymore most of the time. But with a gross little child running around, I do get a cold every now and then.

Have you ever been unmedicated through a hellish cold? It’s AWFUL. You can’t sleep, your entire body hurts. It’s not like eating gluten but it’s badddd. So we’ve just been suffering it out for the last 3 years instead of medicating because of what they add to pills. Flavours derived from soy, preservatives. Gross things.

The only medication I’ve taken in the last 3 years was injectible morphine because I refused to swallow any opiates with fillers (imagine having me as a patient, lol), and antibiotics because my foot was going to fall off if I didn’t take them. I have a love-hate relationship with my foot but I didn’t want an infection killing me.

SO. I’ll type this out because there are shockingly other desperate people out there. You poor, poor souls.

Riddle me this:

What do people give to babies when they can’t swallow pills?

Suppository medication.

Do you know what the ingredients are in suppositories? Vegetable oil for a lubricant, and the pure medication. No fillers. Guess who doesn’t react to even the vegetable oil as long as I don’t swallow it? THIS GIRL.

So there you guys go. To anyone who is as sensitive as me, don’t forget you can get suppository meds:

  • Acetaminophen at most pharmacies (fever and pain)
  • Gravol (Diphenhydramine – works for sleeping and nausea and as an antihistamine)
  • Ibuprofen (fever, pain, inflammation – you may have to order this online)

The other thing that’s worth looking into is compounding pharmacies. You can get a lot of medications pure or pure in water if you pay for them at a compounding pharmacy. Fluoxetine (an SSRI) can be made in pure water. My mom got hydromorphone made purely (this was difficult to find though, most compounding pharmacies said they couldn’t get the drug). I prefer to avoid swallowing anything that isn’t meat so suppositories it is.

So yeah. You’re welcome.

It takes a desperate type of person to not take medication for years because of the fillers. I didn’t want to be this person, but you don’t choose your life. Once you hit this point of desperation for health, sticking medicine up your bum really ain’t no thang.

Good luck out there folks. It’s a crazy world.

  1. Once I convicted a doc to stich-up my broken lip without painkillers. Took about seven stiches, lol. I kind of liked the experience. But that’s me – I like to tough things out naturally. Thanks for the tip Mikhaila; I am sure it will come useful one day.

  2. cool post, i never thought of that!

    could you perhaps make a post about how to deal with intimate relationships when you’re so sensitive? like what if you kiss someone who doesn’t eat a strict meat diet? (I assume your husband follows the same diet though, but i guess that won’t be the case for everyone’s SO)

  3. Medicines can help you feel better and get well when you are sick. But if you don’t follow the directions, medicines can hurt you. You can lower your chances of side effects from medicines by carefully following the directions on the medicine label or from your pharmacist, doctor, or nurse. Side effects may be mild, like an upset stomach. Having a medical advice for the supplement plan like aetna medicare plan F ( gives a relief to the person who are not in a condition to afford a medical cost.
