Well that's what my GP told me this morning when I saw her as I'd managed to get an appointment at mid-day. Should have figured it out for myself over the last few weeks, but with concentration very poor and being dazed/and unable to think clearly any more, I didn't.
What's going to happen? She's got me tapering off the 3 a day lofepramine tablets to two, one, then none, for Tuesday and then when I go and see her again in an arranged appointment she'll have looked through my back notes to see what other meds we tried those eight years ago that were too zombyfing for me, and avoid those, and look at new meds, and try me on something new from next Tuesday onwards.
I didn't realise that meds can lose their efficacy if you take them for so long. Guess that I do now.
PS, signed off work for a fortnight too...
