Medication 101

When I was first diagnosed with asthma, and with an autoimmune disease, and was prescribed medication, the first thing I wanted to do was research all the medications I had been given to make sure I knew as much as I could about the medication before I took it. I want people to be able to use this blog as an information resource as well as being able to relate to some of the experiences I have had with my illnesses so I am going to write posts about each of the medications I have used for asthma, and for the autoimmune issues [all marked with an asterisk] and then after I have finished writing the information about those, I will write information for other commonly used medications. I will be adding to this list in the future so if there is any medications you would like me to include please feel free to comment or message me [see Contact Me page]… This way I hope that people will be able to find this blog a lot more useful. This is the kind of resource I needed when I was first diagnosed so I hope that it will help!
