I'm on antibiotics for a UTI at the moment, and on the second antibiotic because after the doc cultured the, er, sample, they found that the bacterial culprit responsible for this was resistant to the one she'd put me on, so I had to switch to another. And this other one requires that I take it with food twice a day, and not take it with vitamins, because there are a few vitamins and minerals that interact with it in odd ways if they're taken together. Same with caffeine. I poked around the intartubes and found that the reason you're not supposed to take it with caffeine is that it increases the effects of caffeine. So I ahve declared that one caffeine-containing drink in the morning won't hurt me, and indeed it seems not to have. (I had tea; mostly so that caffeine withdrawal wouldn't provoke a migraine so that I wouldn't have to go searching for yet MORE drug interaction info.)

Also, I can't take NSAIDs on it. Bah.

IN other news I decided not to do fandom A for my Parallels fanwork, and instead fo fandom B (I matched on two). Which is good, because it gives me a chance to practice a style I've really wanted to try. Here's hoping I don't screw it up! :D
