Do you take any daily prescription medications for a physical health issue?

Meds for migraines. Also used to try many different kinds for stomach problems but none of it helped.

Migraines are the worst :(

Oh no, do you get them too? :-( How often?

Fortunately I've only had a handful of migraines. I have a headache most days of the week, mostly due to stress/anxiety/jaw clenching and TMJ disorder. But I've only had a few true migraines and they were awful, so I feel for you if yours are often!

I have all those same problems! I'm so glad you don't get migraines often though. At points I've gotten them 4 times a week, which is troubling because I'm not provided nearly enough meds for that and it's too debilitating to get any work done.

Somehow I haven't had one yet this month though. Bizarre and I have no idea why, but I'm happily accepting it. :-)

Oh my gosh, 4 a week is just terrible. Glad you've not had any this month though!!

Thank you! I hope your issues don't ever become too unbearable. :-)

Lanzoprazole (tummy pills), and Crestor (cholesterol pills).

At one point, about ten years ago, I was taking 11 different prescriptions that I took daily. I now take zero medications. I also have no signs or symptoms of any ailments or diseases.

How'd you do that?

In August of 2009, I decided to really do something about my health. I began with exercise and eating half of what I was eating. 2-1/2 years later I lost over 110 pounds, and I weaned myself off of all my Meds.

I work out nearly everyday and I track everything I eat.

Just antihistamine for allergies.

I have polycystic kidney disease, so I take blood pressure medication in order to keep my kidneys healthy. My bp isn't bad (it's moderately high), but this is all they can do to try to keep my kidneys from working very hard.

And this isn't really a medication, but I use a CPAP due to my sleep apnea. Hence all the mouth breathing talk on a couple of polls today
