If you can count how many drugs you are taking, then you aren't taking than many drugs.
I don't really know what my max is, I figured it had to be more than 5 at some point. I have often been on two drugs for my Crohn's disease and I used to take 2 for my allergies, so if I got sick when I was taking that four and took something else that puts me at 5.
I have swallowed as many as 18 pills at one time.
I've have never taken an illegal drug.

my daily scrips alone are 6 distinct drugs. (Prozac, Nasacort, Zyrtec, Humibid, Azopt, Travatan.) Add the morning coffee or tea, and possibly some evening wine, and often some Motrin (which I take semi-regularly for arthritis), and sprinkle all the vitamins and herbs on top, and I'm a veritable cocktail of physically- or mentally-altering substances.
And I have 3 distinct modes of "taking": ingestion; inhaling, and eye drops.

I think it's probably two, but it might be three.
I've had alcohol and nicotine together, and it's fairly likely I still had some caffeine, or claritin, or something else in my system at the time.

I think the most I've done at one time was 3. Alcohol, weed, and painkillers.

When I was a kid and had a fever/cold, my mom would give me three different types of medicine (Robitussin, Actifed, and Amoxicillin) and then at times give me some sort of very vile tasting chinese herbal remedy too. So, I guess that would be 4 substances in my body at once. I don't think that I've had that many different drugs in my body since then.

im on meds for my asthma, my allergies, and usually pain killers for my knee or other issues. when i had a root canal i was on 1 for that, 1 pain killer for my knee, 2 for my allergies, and 2 for my asthma. i also have random inhalers and such. gosh i hate being sickly. o, and when i get a cold i have to double one of my meds and go on a nebulizer.

Alcohol, nicotine and marijuana. And probably Advil or something. Oh wait, I take Excedrin, so I'm automatically on 3 drugs!

Umm... I'm gonna have to go with 7.... back in the day.
And no, none were legal... or.. wait, no, the alcohol was.
But hey, when you're a kid you can do that kind of stuff. :)
Right now, I'm on 3. fluoxetine, loratadine and caffiene... which is pretty much all there is these days. All legal, of course... except for my coffee... which is sometimes strong enough that it should be a controlled substance. hehe

i don't really know. I voted 3-5, because i know it's at least that many. I had a lot when I had mono and strep throat at the same time.
All legal, by the by. ;) At the moment, I'm on...vitamins? Oh, and motrin or something for my eye bone. Because the friggin thing won't heal.

When I had a back injury in HS, I was on much advil, naproxin, and muscle relaxants. And they did almost nothing for it...
I tend to avoid drugs if possible. 'Cept Nyquil. That's my sick drink of choice. Sweet, drugging, knocking out Nyquil...
