Brady takes 25+ pills each day (2 different meds), 8 meds through his g-tube, 4 inhaled meds, 3 nasal meds, 1 injected med, and 2 as needed meds.  So, that's 20 different medications.

None that are related to the diagnosis.

Allergy pills, eczema cream, inhalers.

We are pretty low on meds these days, thankfully.  Three of my kids take nothing daily but a miltivitimin and one a probiotic we are trying.  My little one is down to a constipation med and multi.  Two of them carry emergency meds for peanut allergy and seizures, and little one also in winter often ends up on nebs/inhailers for lungs but not year round.

D is on Trileptal only, twice a day. He does have 2 rescue meds in the event that a seizure is continuous.

None now that Cody has stopped his ADHD medication.

Allergy meds only. I dont agree with medicating a child for acting like a child. There are some who do need it (my cousins kids hands down no question) but most I've seen are just normal kids whose parents should be medicated.
