I take a bunch of meds every night. It’s about a handful practically. To keep things organized I have to use a pill sorter now and I’m no where near elderly! Without it I would be forgetting all kinds of pills.
Now I have one of those giant 30 day pill sorters. It’s like a caricature of a pill sorter. One of my dreaded chores is filling the damn pill box when it runs out. I procrastinate on that so bad.
So, sometimes I wish I could just stop my bipolar meds. I know it’s common. They often make me feel very flat and numb. I don’t feel like doing anything and mostly sleep. Abilify did it to me bad. We kept raising the dose. I didn’t realize it was the medication but thought it was a new part of depression. It’s like being a zombie and just going through the motions big time.
For morning meds I just have my stimulant med for ADD which is sometimes used for depression as well. It’s something that I never want to do without either. It helps with my chronic fatigue and gives me a little bit of help with motivation. I rarely forget to take it because it is so useful to me. I recently had an pharmacy/insurance issue and I was not able to take it for a month. I couldn’t believe how much of a difference it made when I had to be without.
Now, I’d keep all my migraine meds. I guard them. I’m kind of a hoarder. 🙂 j/k a lil bit. 😉 They all live in my purse and I take them everywhere. I don’t plan to be anywhere without any of them.
