Actually none!
But I take them because they help me.
(For some reason Tramadol doesn't do anything for my pain)
But I do as I must until things get better for me!

I personally don't like taking ANY meds! First of all, there are too many side effects from MOST of them and second it takes WAY too long to figure out which one will work with the OTHER meds you take! Third is they just cost WAY too much!! I'll give you a perfect example…I take Blood pressure meds and insulin. I am over weight and am trying to lose weight because if I did THIS one thing I wouldn't HAVE to take meds.!! I can't lose the weight BECAUSE of the MEDS!!!! So not ONLY do I have to fight my own body I ALSO have to fight against all the meds.!!!! Ellen

do you feel as your doctor subscribe the best things for you ?

Yes, it actually took about 3 years to come up with "the winning combination"!! And it's working for now. If I could lose the weight though I wouldn't HAVE to take all these meds!!

I like to do things naturally if I can. I am not oppoaed to getting help from medicines but I prefer not having to have these medical conditions to juggle and all the medications with their possible side effects and interactions. I have always felt that way, but I am not so much of an idealist that I will not use medication at all. I just use what I have to use. I am not a big proponent of "better living through chemistry".

BTW do you note the reply ilinks below each post? You can use them to post below the reply to which you are replying. Keeps the post much neater.

I really don't like taking ANYTHING but I do because the medications help me. For instance I have prostrate problems. The two prostrate pills I take keeps the line open between my bladder and the outside world. If not for those, I'd be in a world of hurt.
