    I take heart medicine, but I’m trying to only take the bare minimum I need to control my symptoms so I usually take it ~3 times a week instead of twice a day. Sometimes I end up taking it every day for a week or so but sometimes I can get by with just taking it twice in a week. It just depends. So I guess 1, but not every day really.

    0.

    I generally take a Tylenol or something similar before going to work, but no prescriptions.

    I take five different prescriptions per day, although I have to take two of them twice a day. I also have a prescription that I take as needed.

    Claritin, multi vitamin, two hair/skin/nail pills and my anti depressant. So five for me. They’re the first thing I take every morning so I don’t forget.

    One, my BC. Should be two, but I learned that my thyroid is actually easier to control without medication. 

    I take a couple supplements on top of that.

    I take my thyroid RX daily, and 1 other RX just 2 days a week, plus vitamins daily. I’m 24 years old.

    @Cummins59:  I definitely have set “times” I take my meds (I take 4 when I wake up, before I eat) or I’d completely forget! I got my husband into that practice b/c I was getting sick of him asking “Did I take my medicine?” (he’s on one med, twice a day). I also keep my meds in what I call an old-people pill case (each day of the week has different divisions).

    @MsLobizon:  I should get a pill box for every day. I’m sure there have been morning where I’ve taken two of the wrong pills lol!

    @Cummins59:  Mine is similar to this one (http://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-media/product-gallery/B001THDDFC/ref=cm_ciu_pdp_images_1?ie=UTF8&index=1) and roomy. My husband has a much smaller version, and it only has AM and PM slots. It’s helpful b/c there have definitely been some early mornings where I would have potentially double dosed myself or not taken any medications – I’m not made for mornings.
