I'll be 60 on my next birthday and have had four major surgeries in the last three years along with several different treatments for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma ... and I'm currently on NO MEDS. (Now the trick is keeping it that way )

Not quite 40, take occasional Rx pain relievers for arthritis damage from when I was a kid (JRA as kid). No other medicine - and that particular medicine I perhaps take 10 / year.

Nothing chronic. No vitamins, no nothing.

Not because I don't believe in medicine (I think medicine is AWESOME), but currently have no need. *Yay!* Hopefully I can say the same thing in 20, 30, 40 years.

I am 41, and I dont take any medications...

My husband is 44, and no medications...

This is by choice.. We have both been prescribed things but we are both against pills of any sort..even for a headache..

no meds. --there are 3xs in my life (once past age 12) that I can think of where I took meds. Im 50+ and use nutrition and remedies via foods and herbs to recover from acute illnesses. works delightfully. no side effects and effective.

I'm 48, and I only take meds for rheumatoid arthritis (one to keep inflammation down and one for pain when needed). Otherwise, I take vitamins.

I'm 52 and take no meds, although my doctor would like me to take cholesterol meds (statins) I refuse. diet, exercise, maintain low stress, spend more time with animals then people and you should be fine.

I'm 45 and take no meds, other than OTC Fish Oil, milti vitamin, and I'm trying St. John's Wort just because I'm at a bit of a stressful time in life. But my blood pressure/cholesterol are fine, I eat right, have been working out and doing cardio for 25 years, nearly a vegetarian, so have no use for prescribed drugs. My younger brother is overweight, eats horribly, and is on meds for cholesterol, blood pressure, and who knows what else.
