My daily meds.

Up until 2014 I barely took any medication at all, maybe a paracetamol when I had a headache or a Lemsip when I had a cold and that was about it.

Now each morning I take what I consider a load of meds, some prescribed by my doctors others I self medicate.

Prescription meds

This is because I have acid reflux which if I don’t take 20mg 2x daily, one in the morning and once in the evening means I can’t talk properly.

This is for my bronchiectasis and it thins the mucus in my lungs making it easier to shift ( cough up)
