my body needs every single one, or else I feel like crap.

If you're lucky to have been born without health problems, then good for you. But I have quite a few.

most of them are harmless though, just supplements. Here are the more serious ones: Mino - for acne, Prevacid - for esophogitis, Clarinex - allergies. The rest are harmless and basically food supplements. My doc's fine with all of them.

if you want B5 to work, you have to take 20 pills per day

if you want Meta to help with IBS, you gotta take 6-8 with every meal (it's just dry fragments of herbs)

You are supposed to take 10 grams of B5 per day according to the study. That's 20 pills.

My hair stays clean for a lot longer now, so I guess the B5 is reducing oil. Doesn't seem to be doing much for acne. No side effects.

LOL, I can soo relate to this. Before I changed my diet I was currently taking 10 pills a day (65% - 85% clear), but was looking at taking 30 - 40 pills just for my acne & hirstusm. Well, I opted to change my diet (99% clear) and this is what I take regularly:

Benefiber - 1-2sp/2x a day for added fiber

1 Spironolactone 100mg tablet - for hirsutism

Currently testing:

2 500mg Neptune Krill Oil capsules - for EFA dry skin issues

Next week testing:

2 500mg N-acetyl Cysteine capsules - for last 1% of acne, hirsutism, added glutathione

Of course # of pills doesn't really mean as much as the dosages do though. So 54 pills could be 25 or 30 if you buy larger capsules.

Currently

GNC multivitamin 1 time daily

Ester C 500mg and r-ala 100mg 2 times daily

Dostinex .5 2 times a week

Arimidex .5 mg every other day

Have avandia but i'm not sure that i'll use it, since it slows down skin turnover.

Oxandrolone...have a prescription to this but i'm unsure of using it
