“I have Crohn’s Disease, I have diabetes, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, and I had a stroke. From all of this, I am on medication for depression as well.”
Chalk it up to bad genes: Amanda St-Amour struggles with a lot of health conditions.
She’s 30, lives in Merrimack, and pulls out a small laundry basket full of pill bottles.
“Basically, I take about 1, 2, 3…15 pills a morning.”
Recently, one pill has gone missing from the stack. It’s a drug called Trilipix, which St-Amour has taken for years to keep her triglyceride levels down.
