01:00 pm - All my pills

Ballard, Seattle
September, 2009

This isn't even that many, all things considered. But here is the tour:

The purple case to the right contains niacin, which I take after dinner. It sits on the kitchen table.

The small blue case in the middle contains HCTZ, a diuretic that I take to relieve ear pressure (likely caused by Meniere's Disease). I take that in the morning.

The white case contains all the pills I take at night. It has: a multivitamin, a potassium supplement, vitamin D, aspirin, loratadine (allergy), Crestor, and levothyroxin (thyroid supplement).

NOT PICTURED: Fish pills, which require refrigeration. I take two at night before bed, with the other evening pills. And I'm starting to take two more with dinner.

I'm sure there are plenty of people on my friends list who take more than this in a day.

I never had much in the way of pills to take as a kid. Even today I don't. (My mom, who is a doctor, suggested I take a one-a-day multivitamin that she has a few billion physician's samples of, but until then I took nothing.) So it still seems weird to me that my wife considers popping several pills a day normal.

three prescriptions -- the levothryoxin is a prescription, but it's not clear from the text.

Are all fish pills supposed to be refrigerated? I've been taking fish oil for a few years now and never had any problems.

Well, whaddaya know. I always figured they did. But I've looked at the bottle and nowhere on it does it say "refrigerate after opening." I stand corrected!

I don't know how we got the idea they needed refrigeration. As it turns out, they're too big to fit in any of the pill minders anyway, so I might as well keep them where I know they are. Oh well.

They barely fit in mine. You could always get the giant large print style pill minders ;)
