I hope you weren't fasting until now, because that doesn't sound "very good" to me...

So, next week is a fast and I live by the tylenol+caffeine suppositories that for some reason only heimish local pharmacies sell. Non-jewish pharmacies don't even know what they are.

I take at least one on every fast and they literally changed my life. I used to be a vegetable on the couch/bed and after my first fast married my wife saw me like that she begged me to try the suppository and it was an absolute game changer. I have never looked back. Until now. About a year ago the pharmacy I go to started requiring a prescription for them :o  so I just went to the next pharmacy  :D and then to the next. But now I've ran out of local pharmacies, all of them caught on and now require a prescription.  :-\

A) what changed? why do they now need a prescription?
B) how do I get a prescription for something that doesn't really exist outside the frum world? I asked a doc friend of mine and he didn't know what I was talking about and when I explained it he said just take the tylenol ones that are over the counter. But are those the same? I'd hate to have to go back to being a vegetable and my wife would hate it even more.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

You have a week to detox now although it is incredibly painful. Maybe try the caffeine pills instead?

I've tried all the "segulas" including eating watermelon, eating grapes, drinking a pool sized amount of water!, NOT drinking too much before, you name it I tried and it didn't work. I still got an epic migraine and shut down.

Did you try slowly weening yourself off of your caffeine addiction?

Maybe the “awkwardness” is what he is looking for

Substantially less.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!
