My mam has been taking this medication for 29 years, originally prescribed for depression. Do you think it'll still work or will she have built up an immunity to it after so long?
Lisa x Yes no reason it should not and if she has been taking it this long, That is good do you notice any reason that it does not seem to be working? If not I would just leave it more so when you get up in years your system changes to and all this medication does is add the serotonin that we are lacking in many cases.A chemical that most brains make on it's own but not enough causing many problems for the patient like anxiety, depression, Have a great evening Chuck1957
