Who's taking meds?
 
Besides prenatals or other vitamins, are you taking any meds?

I actually haven't been taking my vitamins and I think it's contributing to my low energy level. Well start again in the morning.

I'm only on Zantac now! Its nice to only take that with my prenatal vs the handful of pills I needed for survival before.

I am not currently taking anything other than prenatal vitamins and occasionally Tylenol for a headache. But this summer cold I have is getting out of control and my ears are starting to ache. I am afraid I am going to need something and I hate taking meds when pregnant.

I take protonix, reglan, doxylamine, metanx, and have daily lovenox injections. :/ I will be so glad to deliver this baby!

Nexium in the morning, Pepcid at bedtime.

Zofran, phenergan, benadryl as needed for nausea. Only throwing up 3 times a week now on average but I feel nauseous almost all the time still :(

Zofran twice a day, tums - I have a feeling I'll need to switch to something more powerful for my reflux soon. Though I think I've made it longer than I did last pregnancy. Found a way to fold a blanket and raise my head a bit more that's helped me not choke on my stomach acid at night.

Oh, and a probiotic every other day.

Otherwise, I'm so horrible remembering to take any vitamins.

I try to remember to take the prenatal, but I often forget. Ooops!

havent taken the prenatal in a while. just felt icky and attributed it to that. i may need to start taking them again b/c every time i see sand on the tv, i want a mouth full. weird.

i take prilosec every couple of days for the heartburn/reflux. but i think that makes my stomach feel weird b/c i throw up usually the same day i take it. but it's either that or the burning of the acid.

i also take bp meds.

I take an oral anti-glycemic called glyburide. And my prenatal.

I take prenatals every day and occasionally a Tums for acid reflux. I have an inhaler and nebulizer in case I need it for my asthma but so far I haven't needed it at all! Fingers crossed it stays that way.

Re: Who's taking meds?
 
Zantac and my paid meds for back. I'm going to get off of them soon and just deal with the pain.

Re: Who's taking meds?
 
I take my pre-natals, progesterone injections IM once weekly, and I take hydrocodone on an as needed basis for pain. I was on Lyrica before getting prego and I loved how it wasn't a narcotic and it was actually something that really helped with my nerve pain but since it's a newer drug my OB wanted me to go back to the hydrocodone. I usually end up cutting it in 1/2 becuase I don't care for the feeling it gives me but sometimes i can't avoid taking it. For me on the days my ankle pain (I have 8 pins and 6 wires and a severed nerve) gets to be too much it causes me to feel panicky and I get a very rapid heartrate and usually hyperventilate so this seemed to be the best option. On so so pain days I just take tylenol and tighten my brace.

Re: Who's taking meds?
 
i take my prenatal everyday (or Nate would get after me about baby's nutritional needs.. i'm so lucky to be living with an expert on all things baby related) and i take some antibiotics, because since i've gotten pregnant, i've had 2 sinus infections and a chest infection. i'm currently in the process of trying to decide if i'm having another chest infection, or if it's just a chest cold.

Re: Who's taking meds?
 
I take Zofran very rarely, but starting soon I'll be taking something for this newly developed reflux
