I'm curious, how many of you take your medications on an "as needed" basis or take them as perscribed every day? I'm on so many, that if I take all of them I feel like a zombie. I usually don't take my pain medication unless I need it (hydro and zanaflex). My doctor says to take them all every day so I won't get in as much pain. I want to be able to feel emotionally and physically and lead as normal a life as possible (don't we all). I'm in a really bad fibro flare and my fatigue is horrible..of course I'm taking everything now to get out of it. But, I did have a good summer (hardly no pain) and I didn't take much meds then. I don't know what to do! What is your way?
