Best. Medication Name. Ever.

The ultrasound results are back and everything looks pretty spiffy with my kidneys despite the fact that they're still not behaving. After a lovely visit with the doctor this afternoon where we commiserated about drug and insurance companies and the fact that his office staff is incapable of using an apostrophe correctly, he decided to try me on something new.

It's called...

wait for it...

Urispaz

Yes, it's pronounced you're a spaz.

My first question was whether or not it was a placebo. He insists that it's not, but we giggled about the name for many long and awkward minutes. Good times...good times. Here's hoping it's useful as well as amusing.

Holy crap! I had to take that once upon a time. It does work. But I suffered so because every damn time I took it the man would smile and say,

"Yep. You're a spaz..."
Grrr.
Glad you are feeling better.
You spaz, you :)

Sometimes I wonder how they ever come up with those names...

Kelly Kirch said...

Some pharmaceutical genius and his buddies shoved their glassed up the bridge of their noses and had a good snort over this. But could it be more aptly named?? I submit that it could not!!

I think they saw you coming, honey. But hey, at least your doctor has a great sense of humor over it. Mine likes to give high fives. And he's not 20, he's late 50s minimum. ooooodd.

LOL. Reminds me of a certain friend from high school....

That's a new one to me and I'm thinking that's a very good thing as it means I haven't needed kidney medicine for a while. Yay!

My gosh, I hope it works like gang busters for you. Nothing worse that kidney probs.

Be well.

I don't care for the name 'spaz' used in any connotation. No one should be called that ever
