I see my PCP, an ophthalmologist, and a diabetes specialist. They all know what the others have prescribed, but good heavens! I take 7 prescription meds most twice a day, plus fish oil(3/day), multivitamin, potassium(2/day), magnesium(2/day), calcium(6/day), vit D 2000 IU/day, several vitamins to boost my immune system, and iron to keep anemia away. Comes to something like 12 pills with breakfast, 4 with lunch, and 16 at suppertime/bedtime. Takes me almost 15 minutes to get pills ready for one taking, or about 35 minutes if I get them all out for the week and put them in bottles on the weekend.
Expensive, time-consuming, and I'm getting sick of adding more and never taking any away! Thanks, friends for letting me vent.
