Nothing personal, but it isn't a consolation. I will say though that I used to be just like that for the first couple years of my disease, where I would respond well, but then get crushed by side effects, and even more crushed by withdrawal. Now, after many, many, many trials and treatments, I don't tolerate or respond well to the meds. Many I can no longer even touch, but I still get discontinuation syndromes and withdrawals. They're worse than before though, because I am in no position to tolerate it.
Do you ever feel guilty about not staying on a drug you are receiving therapeutic benefit from because of the unbearable side effects?
