Lately i feel like im falling apart at the ripe old age of 26…and i know its only going to get worse…. my doctor has me on a bunch of meds to help me out, but i feel like a druggie when taking my meds. For examaple i pull out all my meds at them at night, and i just took 5 different pills…and friday i take a weekly pill too!
So my question is, how many pills do you take a day? Including vitamins? I cant be the only one out there feeling like druggie everyday!

I take at least 3 prescriptions a day, with vitamins its 5 pills. There is one other prescription I am supposed to take as well but I can’t find it lol. Good thing it’s not super important.

@Jen51287: Hmm…I wonder if “0” is considered a blank option to the website’s software.

Well thyroid meds, that’s for life. 2 pills. 2 other ones are PRN. If you want to get into supplements that’s like 30 tablets a day on top of that. Plus the occasional round of antibiotics and such.
I have been very very ill before though, at one point I was on 7-12 Rx meds at a time due to that.
I depends on your condition, what you need them for, etc. Some meds I needed before I don’t need forever. If you get into taking meds to negate the side effect of other meds well… that’s not optimal right? Personally I try to only take whats really neccessary. I don’t feel bad taking things that my body can’t/won’t produce on it’s own. I’m not getting high off thyroid meds lol.

I take no meds but a slew of nutritional supplements. I am also almost 50 and have not had a bout of the flu in twenty years. My daughter (God rest her soul) was a severe asthmatic and also had epilepsy. She took anywhere from 4 to 9 meds per day. Plus she had a home nebulizer to give herself treatments. I felt so guilty because I was (am still am) so damn healthy and she was sick since the day she was born. Sigh!

@Jen51287: I take my birth control, my anti-depressant and an anti inflammatory. So I put 3 in the poll. I know what you mean though. I sit there popping pill after pill with SO looking at me and I’m like “whhhhaaaaaa?” cause he takes nothing lol.
OH! I also take a vitamin a day too.
