Post a picture of your tablets thread

Recommended Posts

Ah, you beat me to it, I was thinking about a thread like this.

This is the risperidone I'm taking now, normally I don't get this version by Teva, but this month I have for some reason. I did get Risperdal once also. The NHS I guess always goes for the cheapest. Can't say I blame them.

I also take tamsulosin hydrochloride because I found myself waking up at night to go to the toilet every night. So that's fun. It's nice that my bladder also thinks I'm a ninety year old man too..

perhaps you could post a few of your favourite looking ones?

LOL, no, not even going to get into it.  No favorites.  Plus most of mine come in the pharmacy containers (they count them out from a larger bottle) so I dont get any of the box info.  Some do come in a box or whatever (when they don't need to count them), but I can only think of 2 that come that way, off the top of my head.  And when I get home I throw one box right away and hide the meds if I have overstock.

All generic- this is my daily regimen. 30 mg Adderall twice/day, 225 mg Effexor in the morning/150 mg Effexor in the afternoon (300 is the max dose for the XR, so I'm on a split dose to get to 375 mg/day), 2 mg Klonopin twice/day, 20 mg Abilify before bed.

I also take Metformin for poly-cystic ovarian syndrome's lovely effect of insulin resistance, and I have an Albuterol inhaler, but I figured you just wanted to see the crazy pills. ;)

Just to add.......

As strange as this sounds I hate taking a pile of boring medications. My Meds are almost all white and cream in colour.

So I am delighted to have 2 medications with a bit of colour. My fluoxetine capsuleso are purple and green. Purple is my favourite colour. Go fluoxetine!!! 

The other medication with a bit of colour is my omeprazole capsule which is white and pink which is an improvement on plain white!!!

@rowan77 I thought the patent for seroquel xr wasn't expired? The fluoxetine ones do look pretty cool! and that doesn't sound strange to me, colourful pills are definitely nicer!

@heilmania the adderall pills look cool and also the effexor, what's your favourite? 

@Southern Discomfort The lamictal doesn't look that large, I heard they're hard to swallow?

Took my first one just thirty minutes ago. Wasn't hard at all. They're only the second lowest dose pills though. The risperidone tablets I'm taking at the moment are a bit larger. I have to take three of them at the moment.

@Asho2345 I have been taking generic Seroquel XR for the past few years. I live in Ireland so there are probably variations in different countries

It is a country-specific thing.  The instant release version has been available as a generic in my country for some years now, but there's no sign of it for the extended release.  The co-payments on it cripple me because my medical insurance doesn't understand why I won't just take the IR, but it's the one drug that I can't give up.

I never knew that someone else thought this too.  I usually have an "Easter Basket" variety of many colors.  And when I add in OTCs, it is much more colorful.  Also if the med is a different dose (dose change), sometimes that med is even brighter lol.


About swallowing the lamictal, I was fine for awhile, but for some reason they switched generics and I ended up with a pill bigger than a dime, the powdery kind that got caught in my throat.  And when I finally go it down, the powdery crap was still on the back of my throat. 

I told pdoc I couldn't swallow these, even when cut (just too powdery), because they got caught in my throat.  So he prescribed the ODT kind.  Don't taste the best but I can at least take them (I have to have the name brand because those taste ok and I can get them down.  The generic, when I put it on my tongue,  It felt like my tongue and my throat just stopped working.  I couldn't even spit it out; I had to pick it off of my tongue.)

I also like the color component, to be honest. ;-)

In a.m. - lots of white (duplicates), one peach, one blue.  the peach is the prettiest.

in p.m. - lots of yellow (also duplicates), one really cool blue/teal, one peach, one white.

I'd post a picture, but I'm not really feeling the brain power and don't have the ability currently to learn how to get a picture onto this site.

      This pillbox is simply the best. Not only does it have AM and PM slots, the picture is deceiving because that bitch hold a lot of pills. Also, as I demonstrated, any day can be removed in order for an early morning ot a night out! Only a few bucks at Walmart - makes taking easy fun.
      Fun side note: It fits *perfectly* on my gigantic phone.

      I doubt anyone remembers me but I made some blog posts and forum posts a month or 2 ago about my snorting focalin and doing benzedrex inhalers along with other addictions and unsuccessful meds. Well, since then I've just stopped thinking of my mental disorders as concrete things and just consider myself bipolar NOS because it's easier. I got the whole motherload of schizoid adhd paranoid sometimes manic depressive disharmoniushellride. But after almost locking myself in to a rehab during the interview, they gave me a tour and it was just like the crisis unit, thorazine zombies and one flew over the cuckoos nest atmosphere. So after refusing to sign the final release saying I changed my mind for about 3 hours a bunch of women tried to put me on an involuntary status even though I wasn't a danger to anyone, they were just mad because I knew more about their jobs and craft than they do, they even kept calling me a condescending egotist saying that's a valid excuse to lock me up. Well, I contained my anger and started to be humble saying I didn't think I was smart. So they tried to lock me in saying I was suicidally depressed because I was self depricating. After that whole shitfest I left and went home. Since then I've pretty much kicked the benzedrex, kicked the opiates mostly, take less klonopin, and have a stable med routine
      focalin 10mg 2x/day (I still take a few extra of these :S)
      buspar 15mg as needed (prescribed today, the 5ht1a agonism is a fucking blessing)
      seroquel 300mg at night (I only take it when I have really bad insomnia)
      clonidine .3 mg as needed
      aaanddd I ditched the lexapro because SSRIs are mostly evergreening scams, plus I don't need any serotonin altering to that extent, I did a couple of DXM binges (not to trip, because I take dxm once a month to reset tolerance because its an NMDA antagonist and it also works as an antidepressant)
      Also finally have a new hobby, I've been reading up on numerology and witchcraft and shit, which also helps me mentally.

      The past five years I was involved with someone on pain management. They, like me, are bipolar. Before they got ill they were a former junkie, so by default they got were mmediatelyaddicted to opiates despite that they were for an illness. Life was all about counting pills, all about the pills, the pills, the pills.
      They also gave me pills. Not a lot. But enough that I managed to get high 1-2x a week--morphine, roxies, oxys. Sometimes there was more, sometimes there was none. I never took enough, long enough, that I'd get any kind of physical withdrawls. Cravings. Yes. I quit drinking because I didn't like to ruin the opiate high & i ended giving myself a reputation as a pill head.
      On top of it. Both of us were prescribed stimulants by our psych docs.  We basically had a good ol' time there for awhile. But shit happened, they ended up having to buy extra painkillers, & I ended up almost having  a stroke because of the stimulants. I didn't even renew my prescription, nor did he for those. It was pretty scary.
      So as it stands my lover is now getting clean & I could not be more proud of them and they are doing a good job. I have also, by default, have done the same. I will not sabotage our relationship by using, especially with them.
      But going forward, I have never told my psychdocs about me chipping (or did i go beyond that--do tell) because I dont' want to sabotage any chance i have at disability.
      My firends who are in recovery don't seem to think I need to go to NA..but I think about doing pills a lot. I found a dusty old diludid in an old purse tonight--but then I was LOOKING for something. I don't have the means to go buy antying &I don't feel so desprate that I would do anything to get one..

      I am so fucking confused.

      I am on abilify, lamictal, and lexapro. I just realized yesterday the cause of my sinus pressure runny and stuffy nose and occasional sneezing could be allergies. So my mom has given me an allergy pill to find out-it contains the following... acetaminophen, chlorpheniramine, and phenylephrine. Can I take it with my meds? Has anyone here had trouble? Has anyone taken them and are fine?
      I am know acetaminophen is fine. But what about the other 2?
