As mentioned in my previous post, I went off one of my major medications because it was causing horrible anxiety. Turns out all it took was about 48 hours and now I’m back to normal after a year of torture. It’s a huge relief. The rough side of it is that medication really helped me sleep and really helped with with my muscle pain, so now I’m exhausted, in lots of pain, and back to square one with medications that help me. Blech.
It’s amazing how one tiny little side effect of a medication can affect your whole life. Once you start taking one medication, then you have to take another to deal with that medications side effects, and on and on and on. I live for the theoretical day when we can have medication that doesn’t have side effects that are worse then the actual problem! I know that day is a long way off, but a girl can hope.
