What a Day looks like for me...

It was only yesterday I realized how my day revolves around medications.

6 am or whenever I wake up - Armour Thyroid
9:30 am - Prednisone 10 mg
1 pm - Vitamin D 5000 IU, Folic Acid 5mg with Vitamin B6 100mg, Baby Aspirin
4 pm - Prenatal Vitamins
7 pm - PIO Shots 100mg on each side (On some Days Post Peak)
8pm - Metformin 1500mg
9:30 pm - Prednisone 10mg
Before Bedtime - Lovenox Shots, Fish Oil, Calcium Citrate, Progesterone Vaginal Capsules

CD 3 to 7 - Clomid 50mg (Beginning of Cycle)
Mucinex 1200mg CD 10-15

I just ran a count on the number of meds I take on some days like yesterday - 13 pills, 3 shots, 1 suppository !!! I don't know how my body manages to work on all these different kinds of meds. I hope I am not overloading myself with boat load of meds and confusing my body.


  1. Similar over here but I stopped all injections. Hate them. And taking anything vaginally. Oral all the way. But it is amazing what we will do!!

  2. Oh wow, that is a lot of meds. May be you can give your body a break by not taking your vitamins on weekends. I used to take a lot of vitamins and stopped about 6 months ago, I think I was stressing my liver because I felt a lot better after I stopped. Now I am on only prenatal and trying to work my way up to taking more, we shall see.

  3. Hang in there. I remember feeling the same way and being frustrated over how much everything was costing me every month, but in the end everything finally came together and now there is a near 11 month old sitting here making a mess of pancakes as I read blogs and drink my much needed coffee. :)
