I went to pick up my Vortirent yesterday and the pharmacist had me stay for 30 minutes to go over a few things. She talked about possible side effects, how to store this medication, and just a few other instructions. One of these just made me break out laughing, but I'm sure she didn't get it.

She told me that for the first 3 days after starting this med. that I ned to double flush the toilet after using it, I must clean the toilet and sink after using the bathroom, no one can use the bathroom after me until I clean it. #1- I hate cleaning toilests at home, let alone I work at an elementary school and I seriously have no intention of cleaning a school bathroom.  :)

I was told that for the first 3 days taking this drug, I need to wash my hands before and after touching anybody. Geeeze, I'll be doing nothing but cleaning bathrooms!

Thought some of you might understand the humor in this. Have a good day everyone. Might not hear from me fast, as I will most likley be cleaning some bathroom.    :)

WOW! Those were interesting instructions! Now, I am kind of sorry that mom gets her meds through the mail, I would have love to have seen her expression when she was told to scrub the toilet and wash her hands before and after touching someone.  I have never heard any of this before.  Are you sure this isn't April 1st?  LOL

Did they tell you not to eat 2 hours before taking the Votrient and an hour after taking it? Also do you plan on taking it at night?

Glad you have your meds now Baaa-bs, I hope all goes well! Don't forget to wash! LOL

I suppose that "wet-willies" are forbidden as well. Sheesh.

That definitely gave mom and me a chuckle!


Like ange, we also receive our votrient by mail so we're not able to enjoy these instructions being explained to us!

I've decided to take my dose at bedtime to maybe avoid some of the side effects. Since I go to bed early, I'm able to have 3 hours time wise after I eat. So far, so good. Today we do day 2.


I thought her instructions were a little wierd.... knew you'd all love it too.

That was just probably her subtle way of telling you no sex for the first three days! ;). No Willies...wet or dry!  I don't know how you kept a straight face.

Imagine the scrubbing necessary for a man who stands up when he urinates.  You'd be scrubbing the whole floor on your hands and knees....kinda of wonder what that stuff is doing inside of you ?????
