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.
