Seventeen pills a day

Post by Silentcook » Wed Mar 10, 2010 3:12 pm

Working extra shifts on top of already long hours at my job has a single occasional "bonus"; now and then I randomly stumble on project-related tidbits.
In this case, I met Hisao. Well, not really - Hisao isn't sixtyish, for starters. Nor does he get a few years to recover from his heart attack before the narration in KS begins. Still, as the med-resources arm of the dev team, I thought sharing one possible therapy list for a real patient might give you all something to ponder and compare with. Bear in mind that this is likely overall MILDER stuff than what our protagonist would have to put up with.

Ticlopidine 250 - 1tb twice daily
Torasemide 10 - 1tb twice daily
Lansoprazole 30 - 1tb daily
Metoprolol 100 - 1/2tb + 1/4tb daily
Lisinopril 20 - 1/2tb twice daily
Allopurinol 300 - 1/2tb daily
Lysine Aspirin 75 - 1tb daily
n−3 polyunsaturated fatty acids 1000 - 1tb twice daily
Ezetimibe and Simvastatin 10/40 - 1tb daily
Cardioaspirin and one other antiaggregant in unspecified amounts.

All dosages in mg. Commercial product names carefully laundered and transformed into their active-principle equivalent, of course.
Go hit up Wikipedia if you want more detail. :)

Nah, crush them up to powder and down them in a glass with a raw egg Rocky Balboa style is the only way suitable for our "VN Stud" Hisao to take all those. :mrgreen:
(Yes, I know... time released medications... yackty, smack; do not bite or crush... yammer, blather. It is a real bad idea to do, but the image of Hisao doing that in the early morning and then going off to run with Emi amuses me greatly.)

Have him montage with the Rocky theme, only at the top of the stairs, Hisao has a heart attack.
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.

Blast it! Now I can't help but hear Stallone's voice in my head saying, "Yo, Emiiii!!" Gah! Get it out, make it stop, make it stop.... :oops:

Currently at 16 pills per day myself, between official prescriptions and recommended supplements. That goes up to 22 this weekend when I start on the new cholesterol med (had a nasty reaction to the old one). 12 (15 next week) of those are taken in the morning.

*edit* make that goes up to 23 this weekend, I forgot I'm supposed to start a new supplement too). There's also the potential for adding 6 more per day if the seizures come back.

I suppose that Hisao's list includes sildenafil citrate in it, right?

A more down to Earth method would be pouring them in a bowl and eating them with milk.

Just asking out of curiousity... is there a specific congenital heart disorder that Hisao is suffering from? Or did you guys not specify it yet?
"If Hisao took one thing away from his time at Yamaku it was the fact that people who have handicaps don't actually have handicaps. People like Lilly and Shizune are more able-bodied and well-adjusted than most of the kids at Hisao's old high school. He shook his head slightly. No, students at Yamaku weren't handicapped; everyone else was." - WetCrate

Shouldn't the ECG in the opening be longer or something then?
