Just took four different pills as I do every morning. Actually five because with one of the meds I take one and a half pills.

Making a poll, then I need to go.

ETA, not five different pills obviously. Why couldn't I just let that go. :roll: > to me

Hmm for the future, isn't there a way to make it possible to select more than one choice? I didn't see it.... thought I've seen it used here, though.

I take Xanax for anxiety, Lexapro for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder/depression, and Risperidone for racing/"bad" thoughts. I've been on these meds since I was 15 and they work like a charm. My quality of life has improved a hundredfold since starting these meds. There are a few side effects, but they're not severe enough to interfere with my daily life.

You don't have an option for those who never took anything and don't intent to.

For mental stuff:

Seroquel for sleep
Sertraline for OCD and panic disorder
Valium for non-cognitive anxiety, sensory problems, and an overwhelmed mind

I've been on these for several years.

(Pretty much the same three drugs as IdahoRose. There's just some small differences between them.)

I take L-Thyroxine and it works! This and Lactase helped me with "IBS" (doctors were hell wrong). It was my idea to try L-T and L and I was right.

Only buscopan for my IBS, and even then I hardly take it because I don't think it actually works, I've taken it 3 times since I was prescribed them in summer and I don't even know what it's supposed to do.

I knew I was missing something. I had a blank option open for the longest time trying to think of it.

Can polls be edited?

I don't think so, but don't worry, we'll go with "other"

I don't and never have, but the more stressful my current work becomes (and it fills up about twenty out of twenty-four hours each day, so it's not exactly easy to escape and relax), the more prominent my symptoms become (especially tics and OCD-type anxiety-related symptoms) and the more difficult to control without assistance. I'm starting to wonder...
(For the record, even though I don't know whether or not it's true, I selected the "better off with treatment, but can't afford it" option - because let's face it, even if I were offered the opportunity to try out a prescription, I probably wouldn't be able to afford to do so.)
