    How Many Prescription Drugs Do You Take?

    No need to go into detail about what they are, but just very curious as to how many. I recently ran across stats saying over half of America is on multiple scripts... wondered how that bears out here...

    The poll will be anonymous. I will reveal my own script usage later in the thread.

    But to spur discussion, is modern medicine is "better living through chemistry"?
    Would you be alive today without your scripts?

    Just to be clear, I'm not looking for anyone to divulge in their posts what or how many scripts they're taking. That will just lead to everyone claiming none.

    Vote honestly and annonymously in the poll... but keep the discussion to aspects of modern pharmacology and medical practices... unless you feel like divulging more of course.

    I take none, but that is probably due to avoiding doctors like the plague.

    I don't take any. Some would probably say I need to.

    Prescription med? Probably when I had gout, which would have been about 10 years ago. That was also the last time I have seen a doctor.

    Now, I take tylenol, and allergy meds all the time, but nothing prescription.

    I take 0 meds, hate prescription pain killers very much.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I take 2 routinely and two on an as needed basis.

    Two related drugs for diabetes, that's it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
