    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 Hate It! Can't Stand It!

    I really hate taking it, even the smell.....ugh. I throw up everytime I take it. So I don't get sick often, and even if I do, I take care of it, without medicine

    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.

    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...

    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
