half the story, medications cause physiological changes in the body and it takes time for these changes to revert if they ever completely reverse. Kind of like cutting your finger, it doesn't heal instantly when you stop the cutting, has to heal. Medications that I have developed a reaction to and haven't taken in years, still get the reaction but not the theraputic effects I use to get. The body must have a memory element buried somewhere, the only thing I know for sure is that we are still in the middle ages regarding our knowledge of the body. Everything today regarding meds and particular with CH meds is trial and error. Seems to be a lot more of the latter.
