    None, I avoid drugs and doctors with a religious fervour, the only ones I take are over the counter painkillers for when I have a really bad a headache or something, which is usually only once a month or less.

    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Re: How Many Prescription Drugs Do You Take?

    In my younger days I would go to the doctor for every little ailment...get some kind of drugs. I also used drugs in as a recreation. I gave all that up about 30 years ago. About 10 years ago I injured my back and I almost ruined my liver by taking too much tylenol.

    I take zero prescription drugs and zero over the counter drugs. I manage my back problems with exercise and proper lifting and movement practices.

    Now, I'm only 60, so I'm sure the next 10 or 20 years will bring some changes. So it goes. If I need to take drugs to stay alive, so be it.

    So glad you mentioned that... so many are completely unaware of this risk. I too was unaware until a close friend who is a medical professional clued me in.

    Perhaps every Rx needs another Rx or two just to manage the side effects it causes.
    This seems to often be the case... great observation!

    And how old are you? I hope you don't take much.

    6-10, but in my defense, I'm 200 million years old.
