    Sounds more like sorcery.

    He should be taking prilosec or zantac, not both. The same is true for crestor and lipitor. Abilify and cymbalta likely would not be prescribed together either. No wonder he’s cranky, he’s overmedicated and then some!

    I’m just glad he didn’t say Viagra or Cialis.

    I was on statins and anti-cholesterol meds and after reading the side-effects, opted for a vegan diet. Six months later blood tests came back and I got off those drugs, lost weight, cut my food budget. People can take control of their lives if they’re willing to change, at least that’s been my experience. Do I miss pizza? Yeah, in theory. But I’d miss my health even more if I lost that.

    My wife is a retired RN. She would tell stories of patients she assisted who were taking such a huge combination of drugs, the doctor would occasionally put the patient on a drug holiday; i.e., under strict supervision, he would stop virtually all the meds the patient was taking.
    .
    Then, he would gradually reintroduce the patient to the same or alternative meds one at a time. Although it sounds risky, in virtually every case, the patient improved, and ended up taking far less meds than when he/she came to the hospital.

    Trust me, you don’t have to be old to need to take any of these medications. Chronic medical conditions can strike anyone at any age.

    A vegan diet? How do you manage to get enough protein with that kind of diet? And having pizza as an occasional treat will not ruin your health. As I have so often been told by my health care professionals, moderation is the key.

    Only that much in a week? I’ve got him beat by 9 AM every morning, thanks to several chronic conditions, most of which are related to military service connected disabilities.

    I guess I won’t tell you to take a pill. You take too many as it is.

    Those are the only ones I’m not on. I must be missing something.
