What Medication Do You Take Most Often? 3

I use Motrin for everything. I use it for menstural cramps, muscle aches and pains, headaches and generally feeling lousy. It lasts for about 4-5 hours for menstrual cramps, takes away most headaches, and lasts about 6 hours for muscle pains (2-3 pill dosage). I have used Advil in the past and I KNOW it is the same, but maybe it is all in my head, but I think Motrin works best. My gyno even told me to take MOTRIN specifically for my cramps. And it helps as long as I don’t miss a dose. It is like clockwork with that pain.


The medication I use fro pain more often is an over the counter medication by the generic name of Ibuprofen. My regular dose is for 2 tablets, 200 mgs. each, every 6 to 8 hours. Ibuprofen comes in different dosages and shapes. For my personal taste I prefer the gel capsules as they are easier to swallow. Ibuprofen does not affect my stomach as aspirin, Aleve or other similar meds do, as I suffer from GERD (acid reflux). The reason I take Ibuprofen almost daily is because of unbearable chronic pain in my ankle as a result of a compound fracture I suffered over 20 years ago in an accident. I had tried other meds such as Aleve, Tylenol, Aspirin and also prescription medications such as Naproxen, Flexeril, Lodine among others but all of them either made me sleepy, hurt my stomach or the relief did not last long enough. Ibuprofen gives me relief for up to 5 hours or longer. I usually take Ibuprofen with food. The only side effect that I have noticed is that sometimes if I take it right before bed at night, I tend to have nightmares or “bad dreams”. I have talked about this to my doctor but she does not believe they are related. I suggest before you begin taking any medications, consult your physician. Remember that there are always drug interactions and you might be taking some prescription medication that might have a negative impact when mixed with the Ibuprofen.


I use generic coated aspirin daily. I use it for arthritis, when I am sick and have a fever and for just about every ache and pain my body experiences. Both my parents pretty much believed that two aspirin and a nap cured all ailments and disease. My mother was informed by her doctor that she needed a triple bypass surgery when she was 63 years old. (I am currently 60 years young.) She refused and depended on aspirin and naps for another 25 years of a healthy and active life. I hope to follow in her footsteps.


The medication I use the most is Loperamide Hydrochloride. This medicine is an anti-diarrhea medication that actually stops the runs. Other medications (such as pepto), just make it lumpy, but you still have to go to the toilet frequently. With Loperamide Hydrochloride I take one pill and I don’t have to shit for hours. Most people need 2 or so pills, but I only need one. The reason I have to use this so frequently? I have a horrible diet.


I have type I diabetes. I use insulin to control my blood sugar levels. The short acting insulin I use lasts about 20 minutes. I tried some other medication to see if it was a less severe type, but my
pancreas has about fully shut down. One time I was trying to get insulin out of the container I was using and it spilled out all over the floor. It smelled really bad, and my dog was licking it up. Fortunately my dog did not die from low blood sugar. It didn’t die because we gave it food immediately after.


I have taken Humlin N and R for five years after being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes which was at the age of 35. I also take Baclofen for Neurosis which is a shooting pain which runs from the top of my temple to jaw. Pain is cause because nerves touch causing a terrible pain down the side of your face.


I use valium most frequently. I have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, agoraphobia, and PTSD. The medicine doesn’t completely dispel the anxiety symptoms, but it does make it more manageable. I have tried so many different medications. Valium is the only one that seems to help with the anxiety. Also, my body got used to the medication and so I had to change. With the valium I am able to go more places. For instance, yesterday, I went to the dentist for the first time in a year. As long as I use my service dog and my medication I have the freedom to leave my home. Aside from medication, the best treatment I have found for my psychological illnesses is my psychiatric service dog. With his support I feel safe leaving my house. He does many things for me, from making sure that I’m not crowded in a checkout line, to inviting conversation with strangers that I wouldn’t normally have the ability to participate in, to finding my car for me so that I don’t have an anxiety attack getting lost in the parking lot.


Asthma It is continuing for last 3 years Deriphirin No, it is working still now no such interesting story on medication have nothing to share at this point


Sudafed is the medication I use most. In my state, you can only get it by prescription because it has pseudophedrine in it. Its the only thing that works on sinus headaches. I’ve tried many products over the counter and they just don’t get the job done. Sinus acts up when the weather changes, I think I’m allergic to my apartment, during the spring flowering, and misc times when the air quality is just poor.
Back in the day you used to be able to buy it over the counter. Now when I go out of state to visit family, I stock up because you don’t need a prescription to get it. Its still behind the counter and you
have to show your ID but its worth it. Drive to another state to pick up something for my sinus headache. Isn’t this planet just a little crazy?
