> I am too sensitive to be on meds continuously, even at miniscule doses. My immune system or whatever just frieks out. I get side effects that someone else might not get unless they took double or triple the maximum dose.
I too have an extreme problem tolerating meds for a long time. Eventually my condition deteriorates to a very poor state physically, and my mental condition turns to significant apathy and malaise. Unfortunately being off all meds is absolutely risking death for me, and constantly going on and off is slowly killing me. It's not good. Not good at all.
I guess from what you've said concerning your 'emergency kit' of standby meds that you spend periods of time not taking anything and when you hit a crisis you turn to a few days on one of your meds?
