How Many Medications Have You Been on at Once

I’ve been on 9. Granted only 6 were for mental health. My mother told off my psychiatrist at the time for so many drugs and they lessened what I was on for mental health to 3 and I stopped a beta-blocker. Still had two for asthma.

I’m on 23 medications, but they’re not all psych meds

I’m glad to say I’m on one atm… But u never know if that may change.

Nearly had to go on anti fungal but they mentioned liver tests and something about effects on your mood and I was like NO Thankyou!

Ps I like your question :blush:

Crikey! That’s a lot.

The most I’ve been on were 7.

That’s 5 psych meds and a migraine med and some tramadol for my dodgy knees.

Yeah. My primary dr has tried to get me off some stuff but I always end up needing it. My urologist has me on a lot too, and then there’s my pulmonologist and gastroenterologist … you get the picture. Ugh!

I haven’t been on more than five.

Poor you. If you need them and they improve your quality of life then I guess there’s nothing you can do.

Yeah. So I do take them, but I find the whole matter frustrating

I can see why you would. I find taking 7 to be more than enough meds and get embarrassed when I phone up to get my repeat prescriptions as I’m only 42 and I need 7 medications.

Two at the moment, plus one prn

Well I’ve been on paracetamol too that makes it two.

Had my teeth pulled out

Right now I am on 5 meds. Only one of them is for depression/PTSD.

I’m currently on five.

I’m 60 years old and take 10 medications. Klonopin and Risperdal are the only psych meds. I have prostate problems, arthritis, high cholesterol and blood pressure, heartburn, muscle spasms, diabetes. I think that’s all.

I was on 5 (technically) I was on adderall (short and long acting) lexapro xanax and abilify. At age 15 bleh it was not fun

5 psych meds. 4 other meds.
