I preface this by noting that, according to my pharmacist, opinion has changed over the years regarding medicine dosage.
Having said that ... the New York Times has an article about the health of John F. Kennedy. The point of the article is that JFK was a lot sicker and in far more pain than we realized. One of the bits of evidence they offer: "At times the president took as many as eight medications a day, says the historian, Robert Dallek."
Well, that sounds like a helluva lot of meds. But me, I figure JFK was just getting started.
Just look at my medicine cabinet. I am currently on ten different prescriptions.
Maybe I could be president!
