Popping Cancer Update: new drugs!

I saw the doctor today because of my trouble breathing, my chest cold and my difficulty sleeping.

This is what he came up with:

-Lasix daily. This is a water pill, which means I should be running to the bathroom fairly often, but also means that the fluid in my lungs might finally go away.

-Ambien nightly. This is a pill to help me sleep.

I have no chemotherapy until Wednesday, so the hope is that all these issues sort themselves out by then. As I've been telling folks, other than being unable to breathe, I feel fine.

Mmm, Ambien...easily one of humanity's top ten achievements.

Is Ambien good? I know it can be addictive and I've seen the commercials on television which, of course, never tell you what a particular drug DOES, just what horrific side effects it can cause.

I'm always excited to try new drugs, though.
