Hey iam1,
thanks for much for all the information, there was definitely some stuff in there I hadn't heard about before. I've been taking the medication for 4 days now and still no side effects to speak of (knock on wood). It's something I was a little concerned about too since I find I'm very sensitive to many things such as coffee and alcohol. I'm due to meet back with my doctor in a week to see how I'm handling the medication so far. I have a really great doctor and she seemed genuinely concerned about my well being and said if I ever needed her for something that I could stop by here office anytime she is there with no appointment.

I've read and been told that it's very very important to take your medication at the prescribed time and I've set up 2 reminders in my phone and I have my medication with me at all times just in case plans change. I must say that I didn't quite realise that if you took your medication faithfully at the right times that it would still stop working after a while. But like you say, they are constantly developing new medications so hopefully there'll always be one out there that works for me.

Thanks for the support and I'll definitely keep you guys posted as to how my treatment is going. I do realise that I have only just begun treatment so side effect could show up somehere eventually.
Cheers!
Mark
