I just do what my therapist and psychiatrist say to do. Oh....and I recently just had a genetic biomarker test done to see what classes of meds are compatible with my body. Haven't got the results yet. After 25 years of taking meds, I'm surprised this is the first time I've ever had this done, but maybe it will shed some light on things.
Interesting - I didn't know that they could check your med compatibility via genetic markers. Do you know if it was an expensive test? Please let us know how it goes with respect to determining a new choice of meds.
