cbear you really did find a wonderful doctor even is its not an MD. I was told by a doctor I was thinking of taking on as my primary and he said I was over medicated on heart and blood pressure meds. He wanted to start cutting out many off them, I said no for one wrong opinion could give a stroke or heart attack.
But I agree that many of us are over medicated and that our bodies would run better without so many. If only mine weren't for my heart I would be jumping on the band wagon of decreasing myself.
I'm so thrilled your feeling better
