I had 3 new meds added this week and I went from taking meds twice a day to 5 times a day. Well, technically, meds 4 times a day and a vitamin once separately from all the meds. The new ones apparently don't play well with others. Or food.

How about you?

Morning, evening and at bedtime. The bulk is taken morning and evening. I end up taking a lot of pills for diabetes and its complications plus allergies.

Morning, lunchtime, dinner, and bedtime. Like notfred, I have physical issues as well, so a good whack of my meds aren't psych meds.

Actually, if we count Gaviscon, I actually take something every two hours. Oh dear god.

Generally twice unless I need my Valium. I take one dose of lithium in the morning and another one at night along with my Lamictal and Valium.

3 times...Klonopin in the morning risperdal and klonopin together in the evening (about 8pm), and a little extra risperdal before I jump into bed at night (11:30 ish) with some trazodone if I think I need it. I'm currently trying to minimize it to two times a day right now.

Variable.

Valproex in AM & PM, spaced 12 hours, on the tens. Concerta can be up to twice a day, very very rarely taken at the same time as a valproex dose. So, not counting my multivitamin which goes with a meal and spaced out from any other med, up to four times a day. Clonazepam as needed, used maybe once a month to once every few months.

Morning meds, night meds, 2 meds every 8 hours, vitmains (if that counts), iron pills, and prn's if needed (although that is rarely needed these days). Also need excedrin and naproxen sodium a lot, taken whenever I need them, randomly during the day. I feel like I am constantly swallowing pills.

Twice, but if you asked this question a year ago, it would've been 6+ times a day, all psych meds.

Twice a day. Abilify, Dexedrine, and Trileptal in the morning, then Prozac and more Trileptal at night. Thrown in Vitamin D twice a week in the morning, too. I don't know if I could keep up with more than twice a day!

Twice a day for my psych meds. But if you include all my meds it's 3 times a day (3 in morning, one with evening dinner, one late evening).

WHAT THE FUCK, MY POST DISAPPEARED. GRAH. Fuck it.

Four times a day-- levothyroxine first thing when I get up; Adderrall, lithium and fish oil an hour later; Adderall and fish oil about five hours later; then Stellazine, lithium, nortriptyline and fish oil at bedtime.

I take meds twice a day - when I wake up and about an hour before bed. It's pretty close to a 12 hour, more like a 11/13 hour split.

I just started taking a supplemental stimulant at 3 pm every day. I generally find it hard to take mid-day doses, because I forget them or am out and about. So we'll see how it goes.

Twice. Prozac and Concerta with breakfast and Lamictal and Seroquel with dinner or at bed time. I'm probably going back to Ritalin so will have to take that in the middle of the day. I find that annoying.

I'm pretty lucky in that I take my meds once a day. I take all my meds in the evening, after dinner.

Thankfully I only have to take my meds twice daily, morning and evening. I never forget to take the evening ones but because I'm not a great morning person I often forget to take the morning ones and only remember hours later. At the moment I'm on an antibiotic for a tooth abscess to be taken 4 times daily and I'm having a hard time remembering to take them but thankfully that is only short term!!

two-three times a day. Adderall XR, Wellbutrin and Prozac in the morning, Adderall/Ritalin afternoon, and often an antihistamine to sleep at night.

Just once a day at the moment as I'm currently only on lamictal - so I take it with my first cup of coffee in the "morning" which might be anything from midnight to 3am the way I'm sleeping at the moment

Once a day, at night. It's weird not taking a pill every morning, but I like it.
