    Severe Anxiety When Taking My Pills For Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Handfuls Morning And Night

    Epilepsy is the cause. Every morning I wake up and take a palm full of pills that count to be 5. Every night I take 9 pills. I've been doing this routine since I was 3 years old, but with different pills and dosages. It is still as annoying as ever.

    When something says "May cause drowsiness" that will knock me out for a few hours and when I wake I'm groggy. I don't like how I feel when on medication.
