I've been given two more types of pills last night and now I'm concerned I've got too many. Tell me what you think please?

Citalopram 20mg daily
Amitriptyline 50mg daily
Co-codamol 100mg daily
Diazepam 5mg when needed
Buccastem 3mg daily

Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

Some would say that any are too many. But it is personal choice - I have stuck to one; got to a very low dose; & in the future I hope to get off it.

It is personal preference; if you feel good about the treatment; then that is what matters.

You're right it is a personal thing, I guess me suddenly having 5 different meds has come as a bit of a shock and worry about them all being compatable. That's just my paranoid side though, and worry they don't know what their doing:unsure:

Thanks

I've been called a walk- in-chemist before.(y)

Ive been called a walking medicine cupboard before now. Not quite sure if that refers to the amount of pills I take or that i'm flat and square.:D

Awwww, hugs sure its the amount of medicine that you take. As a fellow cabinet I can not see how you're either flat or square.
