Hi Wishes and Dreams. Sorry to hear that. How long had you
stopped for? And how long have you been taking it again for ?

Hi Peggo,

Thank you for your reply and concern. Funny thing... today I feel just FINE! Hopefully, I have turned the corner and just needed to give it a little more time? To answer your question, I am not sure how long I have been on it. It's at least 6 years, and I think it is really more like 10. I had been doing so well for so long, I thought I didn't need it anymore. So, I weaned off it. I took it every other day for a few weeks, then a few times a week, then not at all, starting around November 3. I stayed off it for a few weeks, realized it was a mistake and started back on it. I guess that was November 20ish. I have learned my lesson. I will never stop taking it again. I'm 68 years old and, hopefully, will now continue doing very well with my 20 mg. a day.

Thank you again.

Marian
