How many prescription drugs do you take? I have 13, one being a cream. I shared with my shrink my concern over taking so many meds. He said that the average 65 year old has 19 prescriptions. I find that hard to believe. I know so many people my age who take no, or a few, medications. Someone must be taking 40 pills a day to make up for each of these people. I take all 12 of my meds daily, in varying dosages. The cream was prescribed because my primary care doctor said I had skin caner running down the middle of my forehead. He referred me to a dermatologist. Christ, she was gorgeous, and, of course, had perfect skin. She froze a spot off the center of my forehead and prescribed the ointment. I was surprised when she said most of my skin damage was caused by the wind, not the sun. That means I did my homework right when I went into landscaping. I wear caps with long bills to help my sight, but they also protect my face. I always used sun block. And I'd wear a scarf on my neck to prevent becoming a redneck.
So, how many prescriptions do you take?
