It's good that you found a doctor you trust. That makes a world of difference. I've been on 6mp little over a year with good results. I only had mild side effects in the beginning but once my body became accustomed to it the side effects went away. The blood work, in the beginning, is somewhat daunting but well worth it. Without it, you or the doc won't know how you are responding to the med. But the longer you are on it, the less bloodwork you have to have done. In the beginning, I went every week, then every 2, then every 4 and now I only go in every 3 months unless my dosage changes - which it did recently and I'm back at every 2 weeks.
