 Drugs - Introduction

I've got too many tablets!

People with Type 2 Diabetes often receive multiple prescriptions from their doctors. These include tablets to lower blood sugar, blood pressure, cholesterol and drugs to reduce your risk of heart attacks and strokes. Many find this bewildering and have difficulty remembering whether they have taken their medication on a daily basis. Some choose to skip doses, especially since many of the drugs do not improve their well being.
