For the past two and a half days I confused my medication.
I've been suffering with toothache and a serious infection for almost two weeks.
I was prescribed two lots of antibiotics and painkillers.
At the chemists I asked for the leaflets to accompany the meds as I wasn't familiar with the names and the tablets were recanted into 3 identical plastic pots.
I didn't find out what the painkillers were comprised of so opted to take 30mg of codeine with 500mg of paracetamol 4 times a day instead.
This morning I woke with a sore throat and swollen glands. Hubby and I were very surprised having been on antibiotics for 5 days.
That was when I discovered I'd been taking the wrong medication.
A quick google search showed I've been taking 60mg of codeine and 1000mg of paracetamol, 4 times a day for 2 and a half days.
No wonder I've been I'll.
