    Oh, you mean the Lisinopril for Blood Pressure, the Lipitor for cholesterol, maybe the Flomax for that full feeling!!, and possibly the Glucophage for blood sugar?

    And then theres the Levitra to get me up for those "big" events......

    Mine are to many to list. It would take until this afternoon to finish the list. I take on the average of about 63 pills and capsuals a day just to stay alive. Being well is another direction. Gotta bad case of Myasthenia Gravis. This is the little brother to ALS. But, If you take your meds and eat right and get as much excersise as possible you can live with it for a very long time. Now along with that there is Asthema, Diabetes, Tremmens (Handed down from my father) Thanks You Dad! Lets see, Oh yea, Degenerative Joint Disease. I at one time was 6'3" tall but since the onset of the disease I have shrunk down to 5' 11" now. I had contacted Valley Fever here a few years back. And because of the low resistance I stil have to take the medication for that. OK, Best go. Gotta take a pill. Rich,(inPeoria,A.Z.)

    P.S. My Youngest Grand Daughter just loves hearing my little message center voice about my medication. It is programed to say "Time To Take Your Pill" It repeats it's self several times for each pill session. I Call her my pill. Or Miss P. She loves it.

    My wife works for a large mail order drug supplier. Many of you are typical of the medication people call in for. High blood pressure and cholestrol probably ranks most high. You would be amazed at how much medication some people take. Also, Viagra and other enhansement drugs rank high.

    A little chuckle for you: Lady calls in, voice full of emotion. I have a crisis she said. My daughter is in Paris for the summer and shes out of birth control pills. I need these sent right away.(true story).

    Happy Holidays Gerald

    earl, you need far more medication than what your taking! Remember what one of your coaches stated and even that wasn't sufficient.LOL
