My doctor got me to start taking a Multi-vitamin/Multi-mineral daily, Calcium and Vitamin D finally as of a month before my most recent birthday. I had wanted for years to get myself into the habit of at least taking a Multi-vitamin/Multi-mineral daily but never could actually establish and maintain that behavior. The fact that she prescribed them for me has helped me accomplish that. I am trying to lose weight and get into better shape so as to hopefully avoid progressing to the need for actual meds.

I take a type 2 diabetes pill twice a day, a fibromyalgia pill twice a day plus cholesterol and high blood pressure pills. I also take several nutritional supplements in the morning as well as at night. An aspirin a day and as needed ; pain, migraine and anxiety meds. Than there's the over the counter meds. But the best med is good food ,exercise ,spirituality and a positive outlook. And of course sparkpeople!

Multivitamin

I took Coreg about 10 years ago (Pre- CABGx3) it's a Beta Blocker, It didn't help control my HTN.
I now take the Toporol XL which is much better for me.
I was prescribed the Coozar for Proteinuria. Coozar is an ARB (angiotension recptor blocker)
It also is used to control HTN.
Since I've been on the Coozar my HTN is under control within normal limits.

I used to take 17 different meds daily but I am now down to just these and most of them are OTC.

Levothyroxin
Pravastatin
Slo Niacin (OTC)
Iron
Lantus
Fish Oil (OTC)
Omemprozol (OTC)
Fish Oil (OTC)
Vitamin D3 (OTC)

The Omemprozol and Iron are a result of the bleeding problem and I hope they will be discontinued soon.

Six, two in the morning and four at night. I was on Verapamal and Atenanol and was taken off both and put on Lisinipril which is working great. I also take a statin, baby aspirin and flaxseed oil. I am grateful for the medications, information and advancement in cardiology.

My cardiologist just took me down to taking only warfarin. He took me off statins because I could not tolerate them (muscular pains). I feel so much better, now that I am off those statins.

I take 6 meds in the am; and 4 meds in the pm. I also take calcium, Magnesium, D3 and a multi-vitamin. My goal is to get my blood pressure meds down to 1 or 2, get off the Plavix and the crap for my stomach (I think my problem is too many meds!). I've gotten off the Metformin for the time being as I'm REALLY following the doctors orders. I guess all it takes is a little MI, a couple of stints and a balloon to get someone to see the light!!!

Hi
I'm new to this site and spark people. I developed a heart problem after a family tragedy. I have Afib and cardiomyapthy. I take 8 pills plus viamins and hate all of them. I have not been able to be motivated to drop the wt and see if things change. I have been kind of depressed over the whole episode. I am surprised to see that spark people has support for heart diesease.

I take 3 per day - digoxin, avapro and carvedillol. I had a rare heart disease during last month of last pregnancy. I had a 95% cure but left ventrical not working at 100% capacity. Four years ago i had a routine physical and chest xray showed an enlarged heart. I have been on the drugs ever since as a preventative measure against congestive heart failure. I once asked my cardiologist if I would be on the drugs for the rest of my life. He said possibly. I think if I could get rid of the weight once and for all I might just get off them!

I had my coronary in Sept/09 and am now on a tiny dose of metrpelol(lopressor) for blood pressure, lipitor and baby ASA 81 mgs for this. The rest of my drugs are for other various health issues, mainly my cardioilipin antibody(lupus antibody for clotting). I take 6 others for these challenges. Too many in my books!

Too many.

When life hands you trouble slow down and stop to smell the roses. Life is so short, live like today is the last day of your life. Enjoy.
