How are you today?
I thought I'd open this discussion so that we can talk about our medications!
What do you think of your medication? Has it helped improve your condition? How long did it take you to find the right prescription? Have you had to switch medicines over time? Have you had any side effects?
Feel free to share here!

I'm just starting a new patch medication after spravato was not helpful. This will b nardil which I took in the 1980s and it worked for a decade. Hopefully it will work again!

I am happy with my meds but I feel the cost is out of my league when it comes to insulin and pump supplies
and vescepa for triglyceride problems.

I was diagnosed with Juvenile Onset RA when I was 16. I only take Ibuprofen. I am very accident prone. When I sustain an injury it takes me a little while to recover due to the RA. A few week ago, I rolled my ankle aka sprained my ankle. Currently getting PT to help strength the ankle.
I have long term pain meds and depression, anxiety as well. My lower back has malti problems. Bad knee's. I can't drive do to medication's. I have a very good Doctor after many testing and MRI, Xrays, nerve testing and the list goes on. I have a stimulator with a remote that has many settings. It's takin years to get where I am now. I have camped long periods at a time. Mostly hard heavy work all my life from farming, ranching, and gold mining equipment mechanic to explosives as well. My body has had a wonderful life. With out meds I can hardly walk. It drives me crazy I can't do what I want. Age 64 Good morning everyone
Dr. took me off of my 4 yr long Tramadol and sent me to a pain Dr. This pain Dr. put me on tylenol3 for 2 weeks start. Has been the worst week so far in my life. I had a faciaotomy to remove some blood clots 4 yrs ago. Most of the feeling in my leg is numb but the neuropathy is AWFUL! Feels like my foot is getting squeezed in a vise! Ankle is locked in place and is painful. I don’t want to play with meds. I want the one that allows me to be somewhat normal and stop being left out by my family because they just walk on and I’m always way behind!
The swelling is constant and it is hard to find a shoe that will fit on my fat foot. Anyone know if any compression socks that work well??
I have no complaints about my medication currently.
I think I'm having a major COPD flair up 5 days of shortness of breath.
I'm worried the doctor will think it is covid and it can't be the only weezzing I get is breathing out
My lungs are clear. I had covid last November, it might be Long Haler.
TRAZODONE, EFFEXOR, AND ABILIFY ARE 3 MEDICATIONS THAT I WAS SWITCHED TO RECENTLY WHILE I WAS ON THE PSYCH WARD AT EAST ORANGE GENERAL HOSPITAL IN EAST ORANGE, NEW JERSEY......THEY HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE FOR THE BETTER........I AM GLAD TO BE ON THEM......I DO NOT NOTICE ANY SIDE EFFECTS FROM THEM AT ALL......MATTHEW SIPRESS
What medication has changed my life? Not sure you would call it a medication but for me CPAP was a game changer. Before CPAP I barely slept at night. When I did I snored so bad my wife couldn't sleep and was on the couch as much as in our bed. And I couldn't last the day without a nap or two. Daytime drowsiness was a major issue especially when driving. So many times I pulled into a parking lot for an hours nap before proceeding with my drive.
After CPAP I normally get 6-7 hours of sleep-one time up for urination ( prostate issues). No more snoring which makes for a happier wife. (Though blowing cold air from the mask is an occasional issue). And 100% more alert during the daytime. WIN WIN WIN for me and my family.

For my asthma I was just on a rescue inhaler and as needed breathing treatments. I recently was able to start taking Qvar inhaler twice a day and wow. I wish i had started taking it sooner. It has helped me cut way down on my rescue inhaler and I have not had to do a breathing treatment in weeks. I had not tried it before due to expense but my insurance changed some meds that they covered better and that was one of them. I breath so much better.
