What Medicines are you taking (Rx)

Just curious to see how many customers the Health Care system has. They got me:

Nexium (purple pill)
and a few NSAIDs (Non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs)

Nothing. The only time I've ever had a prescription, that I can remember, was when I had my wisdom teeth taken out. Other than that, I'll take some vitamins.

The amount of money I put into my health care is useless. However, I know that once I get rid of it, I'll need it.

Daily women's multivitamin, daily 81-mg aspirin, metformin and buspirone twice a day, Lexapro and lovastatin once a day, and prometrium 12 days a month.

Better living through chemicals.

Same here. Actually, I take Fortamet instead of metformin. BTW, did you know the Fortamet is the Extended Release version of metformin? Check on it with your doctor. It may be a a good thing for you. Who knows...

If lo dose aspirin does all that they say it does then it's probably the cheapest way to stay healthy and everyone should be taking them.


I also take Flaxseed, Vitamin C, and Fish oil.

That's a lot of dihydrogen oxide you must be taking those with.

What he's not telling us is that he takes all that via his anus.

That was implied. I don't have to spell everything out, do I?

I was taking nothing until a couple of weeks ago. For the past few months, My stomach has always felt a bit queasy and neasuous.

Went the doctor, put me on Prevacid and sent me for an ultrasound to check things out. I have a follow up appointment in a little bit.

For the past 3 years, I have been prescription free. I used to take prilosec once a day for the past 7-8 years. Doctor didn't like that I was taking it so long. Recommended a surgery to correct my acid refluxing. I haven't had acid problems in 3 years.

I'm on prevacid now for the next little bit because he thinks I may have a stomach ulcer and thinks I'm producing too much acid in the stomach and want to see if the pills will reduce acid and help the ulcer heal. I don't know what is going on, but I'll try anything if I can stop feeling the way I do.
