shaneys mom, thank you for answering my question.But what i meant was the anti-filarial drug,DEC,used in Mass Drug Administration programs in endemic areas to eradicate the disease.
jyovk; Did you mean the anti-depressant like Lexapro? If that is what you are talking about then yes that is probably the medication that is affecting you in the afternoon. The side affects will gradually go away. It takes about 30 days for this medication to get into your system fully. Good luck
