Do you currently take any medications?

How are you with taking them? Do you forget?

I currently take synthroid for my thyroid, and I REALLY need to remember to take it every day but I often forget. I'm also supposed to take Metformin, but yeah, I forget that too...and when you've forgotten having to go through those side effects again is NOT fun!

I really should take a multi-vitamin, but I have a hard enough time remembering to take the other stuff let alone another thing!

I am suppose to take zoloft for my depression but I get bad suicidal thought when I take it so I just deal with my depression on my own.

Nope no meds. I need back on an antidepressant and an anti anxiety but the clinic therapist I went to didn't want me to see the psychologist to get the script. I know it works, I've been on it before (just couldn't afford the $80 for it before the script help programs). My anxiety and paranoia have gotten really really bad lately.

Always forget my vitamins. I really need the calcium and iron, too. Trying to be better. In fact, I'm gonna take one now. hehe

I don't take anything else daily. I will be if I decide to buy something called butterbur. It's a supplement that is supposed to help with migraines. And I have a prescription for percocet when I get a migraine, which is usually several times a week... but I don't take it much. I have to be able to go and lay down when I do and therefore only take it when I'm going to bed at night and have a bad one because otherwise I feel terribly sick.

I take a blood pressure pill, Benicar HCT, for my high blood pressure. I actually remember to take it every day too. I'm also supposed to take a whole slew of vitamins but I never do.

I should be taking Metformin to help my PCOS but I don't. I'm also really good about forgetting to take my vitamins.. though I do sometimes eat Anaiah's sour gummi vitamins. ( Grandma sent them and she does not like them)

I take Synthroid and Cytomel for my thyroid (Hashimoto's). I'm taking Metformin for my PCOS too, but my blood sugar numbers are normal so I might ask to stop taking them.

I also take vitamin D because I was super low last winter. They put me on a huge daily dose. I remember to take them because my nutritionist said that the low vitamin D probably contributed to how often I was sick last winter.

Do you currently take any medications? Yes

How are you with taking them? Do you forget? I remember to take them 99% of the time.

At night I take my Vitamin, Allergy Pill, and Flonase. In the morning I do the Flonase again and also take Birth Control Pill and Levothyroxine for my Thyroid.

Do you currently take any medications? Oh my, yes!

How are you with taking them? Do you forget? I am usually pretty good at remembering. If I don't remember my body reminds me by giving me yucky side effects.

In the morning I take iron pills for me anemia. Birth control for managing my cycle. I take Levothyroxine and metformin for my thyroid and PCOS. At night, I take zoloft for my depression/anxiety and nexium for my reflux.

I am like a walking pharmacy and I HATE it!

I take prenatals since I am PG now and I take a med called Omeprazole for my reflux once a day. I also take extra Calcium and Magnesium since long term use of Omeprazole can reduce your bone mass. And finally, Diclectin for nausea - with my first two pregnancies I had to take it the whole pregnancy and I suspect this one will be the same.

Do you currently take any medications? Yep, I take Lexapro for my anxiety, blood pressure pills (temporarily) since my crazy BP issue after having Mackenzie, Coumadin (blood thinners) since my lung blood clot after having Mackenzie (only a few more weeks, if all results come back ok...fingers crossed!) and a multi-vitamin.

How are you with taking them? Do you forget? I am very good about taking them. Everything is on my night stand and gets taken when I go to bed. It is just such a routine and habit, that I do it without even thinking about it. The only thing I am not the best about is the vitamin, because if I brush my teeth first then I don't want to take it (mint toothpaste plus a fruity chewable vitamin...) If I take my meds first, then brush my teeth and I all good

Do you currently take any medications? I take metformin, celexa for depression, blood pressue pills and cholesterol pills. I really hate the celexa and the bp pills though they kind ruin any intimate times he DHand I get.

How are you with taking them? Do you forget? I rarely take he celexa or the BP pills the Met I'm pretty good about taking and the choleterol pills I alway forget

Occasional claritin, as needed, so I take it when I need it.

A vitamin, not so good...forget it.
