I Hate Taking Medicine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 252 People

    Bleh

    I simply hate taking medicine. I don't really know why . . . I haven't had any bad experiences because of it or anything, I just hate it. I'd much rather take the pain than try to fix it with pills. Medicine sometimes makes me feel better, but I just subconsciously feel weird...

    Hate My Chemo Capsules

    I hate having to take chemotherapy capsules each day. For although they cut back the bloods, they will I am sure be the death of me. You look up the risks and it scares the living daylights out of me. Oh well you have to laugh................

    It Just Makes Things Worse

    I take antidepressants to help with my depression because when I get depressed, I get suicidal. The problem is that the medicines that I've tried don't work and the one I'm taking now just makes everything worse. What happens is that when I get depressed, I usually get hostile...

    Bad Bad Bad

    Medicine always freaked me out. It's a little compressed thing of chemicals most people can't even pronounce and I'm expected to eat it? Obviously, there are times when I NEED it... such as IbuProfen when it's that time of month... but that's basically it. Most other little...

    No More Medication!!!!!

    Here's what I think about medication. The pharmaceutical companies are out to make money and not out to cure any illnesses. Its so sad to say that but its true. That's why they're listed on the New York stock exchange and the American stock exchange. They want you to keep buying...

    Very Low Tolerance.

    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.

    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.

    I Took Medicine All My Life, Then Suddenly Stopped And Can't Go Back.

    I was born with a rare endocrine disorder and started taking various medicines in the form of pills and daily injections when I was only six months old. This was never a problem for me, as I grew up with it and saw it as a natural part of my life. Then one day, when I was 18, I...

    I take it only if there is no way around it.

    I may take a Tylenol or Advil once every few months. The possibility of all the side effects terrifies me! I have no problems with anyone who does take medicine, I guess for me it is more like a personal phobia :(

    Severe Anxiety When Taking My Pills For Rheumatoid Arthritis
