Thanks for sharing your experience. I take Ofev as close as I can to 7:30 am and 7:30 pm. Just before the morning dose I eat a banana, drink water, take the pill ($200 down the hatch) and then a carton (11 oz) of Premier Protein--1 gram of sugar, 3 grams of fiber. In the evening, about an hour after dinner, I skip the banana and half of the protein shake. I like the convenience, and so-far so-good (knock knock). But the shake contains some strange sounding ingredients and minimal fiber. Yours don't.

Can you make a batch--enough for, say, three days--keep it in the refrigerator, and give it a stir or another blast of the blender before each dose?

They bled me Friday to see about my liver, and I'm waiting for the results before ordering another bottle of Ofev. Medicare Part-D makes it financially possible, but even with subsidies I suspect many people just can't afford it. Sad.

Thanks again for the info. My wife and I both appreciate it.

Absolutely, the smoothies are good for three days. If I am at home, I keep them in a small blender jar and just give them a mix. If I am on the go, I just have them in a small bottle and shake them up. My friend keeps hers in pint canning jars to grab and go, but I am too shaky and afraid I will drop them and make a huge mess.
As you said, so many premade shakes have "mystery ingredients" and I want to know what I am putting in my body. Plus the variety is fun - you can make a different blend every time!
