Not counting cross-tapering (slowly substituting one med for another) and simulaneous intake of original and XR medications. Counting prn that goes on in a continual basis (not "took it once").

I'm on 4.

Also known as the crazy rapid-cycling, mixed episodes and treatment-refractory patient. Did I mention debilitating anxiety? Yeah. Doctors hate me.
