Angelikah Demonikah on Adhering With a Crazy Schedule

In the beginning, was it a little harder to adhere to your medication? Are there any tricks or tips that you use to help you adhere?

Well, in the beginning, I never missed any doses. I've always been really good about that. I still don't think I've ever missed a dose. But in the beginning I was going to bed at random hours of the night. And so the window I was taking it in was like a five-hour window, instead of a two-hour window. And so I mean it was a little more chaotic. I would remember to take it, but my schedule was crazy, crazy back then.

So it's actually helped you regulate your own schedule.

Yeah. It's helped being in a routine and having a better sleeping schedule.

Make sure to read the full interview with Angelikah.
