Do you mean prescription meds, over-the-counter meds, supplements/vitamins, or all three?

In that case, about 8, but they are all supplements, no meds.

1 prescription med for chemo induced high blood pressure. I'm hoping to get off that after my cancer is in remission. The rest are immune system boosters to hopefully aid the chemo to kill the cancer. So far I am having excellent response but it's not gone yet.

My regimens is mega D3, B12, B6, mega vitamin C, NAC and Neuro-mag

Once in a while I will take a calcium pill. I just don't do that daily.

My cancer mutation is not supposed to respond very well to chemo but I'm determined to not be a part of that particular statistic.

I started out with a CEA (colon cancer blood marker) of 219. Normal is 0.0 - 5.0. It is now down to 73.3. CT scans show Marked Response to therapy.

I take 3 prescription pills each day, the rest are vitamins/supplements and OTC acid reducers/ stomach meds (15 total):

Multivitamin
Lysine
Vitamin B complex w/C
Vitamin D
Garlic
Nexium
Zantac
Papaya Digestive Enzyme
Echinecea
Turmeric
Probiotic
Lactaid

I think that's everything.
