How wonderful! May I ask what medicine your on and what symptoms it helps?
I've been diagnosed with anxiety and panic attacks.
My symptoms are......backache, severe headaches that Tylenol and Iboprofen won't touch, problems concentrating and problems remembering stuff, constipation, sleep disturbances, I tire easily, sometimes weakness,sometimes aches and pains,more heart palpitations lately too,  Im sure there is more but it's hard to think. Zyrtec for allergies and sometimes a nasal decongestant.
I take Paxil and sometimes Ativan for my anxiety. Over the counter I take a multivitamin, stool softener, a vitamin B supplement when I remember, AZO yeast when I remember. I think I've given up on Tylenol and Ibuprofen but have turned to Aleve, pain patches, pain creams, and my best friend my heating pad.

Prior to taking it, I was at a pain level of 5 constantly. It has taken away the underlying pain ... my shoulder/knee/hip/ankle still hurts, but not ALL of them at the same time, plus it is easier to deal with pain when you can say "It's my shoulder, so I'll lay on the other shoulder." instead of being overwhelmed by "ouch it hurts all over".
It took me a week to get it in my system. For that first week, I couldn't drive for at least 30 mins after taking it, due to the drowsiness it caused, but that has cleared up since.
It does have a wicked kick if you miss a dose though.

Prior to taking this, I would have random chest tightness and breathing difficulty. The allergist thought my symptoms sounded more like acid reflux than an actual lung issue, and what would you know, so far he's been right!

This one is used to regulate my monthly cycle so that I can mentally prepare myself for the effects of PMDD.

I am so happy that your meds are working for you. Not all of us have that. It really makes a difference when the doctor gets us on the proper pain management.

Take care my friend.
