If you had to choose, and I know that no medications are great...

 

What is your favorite medication you take? and Why?

 

What is your least favorite medication you take? and Why?

 

*My favorite is Nexium. Why?  because its pretty purple and keeps me from throwing up and having heartburn at night.  

 

*My least favorite?  Without a doubt presdinone!  Why?   crazy side effects!  headaches, nightsweats, depression/mood swings, puffy face, sensitive skin....the list goes on and on.

I agree with you there about the Nexium being my favorite both for the color (I have always loved purple) and its taming of my acid reflux which can affect me both day and night. I have had to fight my insurance to get it approved, but it is the PPI that works best for me and thankfully I have it covered for now.

 

My least favorite is probably the liquid Nystatin I have to take twice a day because of the taste. However, it has been successful in doing its job of preventing more incidences of Candidal infections of the esophagus, so it is worth it.

My favorite is clonazapem.  It's prescribed to me for seizures.  It helps with side effect of tremors from prograf.

 

Yes Nexium has a pretty color.

 

With Prednisone and Prograf, I feel so many side effects as well.  Headaches, mood swings (not that bad), random pimples, tremors, blah, blah, blah etc...  Least favorite.

 

 

Well right now I gotta say that Percocet is my favourite, because it helps me with my pain.

My least favourite is Predisone because, for such a tiny pill, it has a very awful taste. I can't remember if I had any other side effects with it too.

Doctors tell me that the acetaminophen in percocet is not good for us.  Dilaudid was prescribed to me for pain.  It was great.  Right now I just struggle with the pain I still have. I haven't had Dilaudid in over a year.  Maybe it's time I get some.  lol

I have been sitting here trying to think of a pill I like???  I think if I had to choose one that brings me the most noticeable benefit it wold be my beta blocker for my blood pressure.  It lowers my bp and a great side effect is it mellows me just a little while it is also my least favorite because it makes me tired. I know that my prednisone is the worst for me but I have allergies so it alleviates a lot of those issues too.   I would say my favorite drug would be the glass of wine I drink after work everyday..... :-)

Fav. : is Myfortic because it's enteric and cellcept didn't work well with me.

Least: Preddy/prednisone because of the skin, puffy cheeks , but thank God all my meds agree with me :)

Percocet was my favorite cuz it helped me sleep/..

 

PREDNISONE I HATE YOU... My least favorite, prednisone... I use to have a skinny face, now its puffy lol
