We are not on any (spouse and myself). My siblings are not on any. One of my BILs is on meds for asthma.

We'll have to see how it goes as we age. But our goal is to live out our days as healthy as possible.

My grandfather lived to age 96----and rarely took any drugs. he died from a stroke while shoveling snow. Active and self-sufflcient 'till the end. The few times my mother could manage to drag him to the doctor, they all had the same reaction---you don't tak ANY drugs? why not, he lived almost a centruy without them! I just wish i had inherited his genes!

I need to amend my earlier post. You guys reminded me.

I did take anti-baby meds and menopause meds {HRT} once upon a time, but I am not taking anything now.

I just didn't think of them as being drugs that you take for an illness.

And....... I could/should be taking something like Fosamax to help prevent osteoporosis.....but I feel I can afford to wait a few years, the possible side effects scare me. I am hoping that they refine the meds by the time I feel I should take them.

I'm on none and I live with an autoimmune illness and several heart conditons, yet I take nothing but use compression stockings and some vitamin supplements. THe medications always made me feel worse and after a bad bout of going into adrenal failure from being pulled off prednisone too fast last year I've tried to avoid all meds like the plauge. Oh and I'm 29
