    Hi Phyllis,

    You are lucky you are taking only 2 AED's I have to take 3 each day and when I was in my teens I was on 5 different AED's at one time. I wish you only the best and May God Bless You!

    Exclamation Bathroom Medicine chest, HA! I need a whole Kitchen Cupboard!

    You should see all the prescription bottles in One whole kitchen cabinet AND I won't take all but 4 or 5 of them. And the thing is WE PAY for all this stuff!!! What a RACQUET!!!!
    Needlessly prescribing all this stuff and the thing is the one script that is helping me the most they scrimp on. I guess that's so I have to make an appt every month to get a refill. What a rip.

    And so what do we do with all these meds when we don't need them? I can't bring myself to dump them into the toilet. All the water here goes back to the lake and it could potentially harm or kill the fish.

    I wish I could just stop taking everything, I feel like my brain is fried. Some days all I do is sleep.

    Welcome to the chaos :)

    They have me on Keppra, Vimpat, Lyrica, and UrocitK. Then I have the daily vitamin as well as a Melatonin to help with sleep.

    Even worse was when they added Dilantin for a month (yes on top of all the others!)
    My Keppra's are the lovely 1000mg's. I still have some scripts from the hospital back in February and my re-admittance in March.

    It seems like a racket at times. IMHO having to destroy and properly dispose of medications is a disgrace. I had something like 3-4 months of Keppra 750's and TegXR over 4 months all had to be destroyed and disposed of properly. :(

    It is so cruel to be on so many medications. The Real problem began when I lost my company insurance and climbed onto Medicare. What a joke. I tried generics, and couldn't take them. So Until I pay 4700 to the feds, no help. I'm in the abyss (other-wise called the doughnut hold) . Beleive me, it should be called the abyss.

    Phyllis when was the last time you had a sz?

    They give me my meds in a big brown bag sometimes. I always wonder what the car behind me thinks when we go through lol.
