20 Memes You Might Enjoy If You Take a Lot of Medication
Please see a doctor before starting or stopping a medication.
When you live with a chronic illness, mental illness or disability, it’s possible you’ll need to take medication at some point or another – and for many, the list of prescriptions you’re given can sometimes feel endless. Although it’s important to take any medications your doctor has prescribed to you as directed, it can be difficult to be on be on a lot of meds at the same time. Staying organized and remembering which day/time you’re supposed to take them can be a challenge – especially if you struggle with brain fog. Monitoring changes and side effects can also be tough since it’s not always easy to tell which medication (or which illness!) is causing the symptoms you’re experiencing.
Despite the frustrations that can come from taking a lot of medication, sometimes a bit of humor can be found in the situation. (As a woman in my early 20s who “looks” mostly healthy, I imagine it’s a comical sight to see me sorting through a mountain of pill bottles and filling up my weekly pill organizer every Sunday night. Even my grandparents didn’t take as much medication as I currently do!)
