I Hate Taking Medicine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 216 People

    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.

    Better Living Via Chemistry?

    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...

    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.

    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

    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...

    Severe Anxiety When Taking My Pills For Rheumatoid Arthritis
