That's what I was thinking. Since you take it everyday, it shouldn't hang around your system much more than a day because you'd be taking it on top of what's still in your system and eventually you'd have way high levels of the med. I believe when the medication is produced in a certain dosage, they keep that in mind, just as when we take antibiotics, the goal is to keep a certain level of the drug in the body. Still, who knows how long the residual effect would be when you stop the drug. It may differ with the medication and the person. Nothing is ever simple, right? But - some things can change the need for the med. Losing weight, increase or decrease of activity, change in diet, etc. can all affect this, so it's important to monitor what we can and report this to the doctor. Good luck!
