5:00 pm: I think the meds are wearing off. It was quick – over the last hour I’ve almost completely reverted to my original inability to focus. For example, I’m writing this blog post, and my friend Josh was talking to me – and I was not able to ignore him in preference to what I was already doing. Also I keep forgetting to take my toothbrush upstairs, like I resolved to do like an hour ago.
This happened really fast. I’m not scheduled to see Dr. Fermo for two weeks, so I’ll continue with the dosing as scheduled, but if I’m noticing the same sort of drop-off around 4:00 by this coming Tuesday, I’ll call and make an appointment for earlier. It didn’t last as long as I was told it should, but things like this are to be expected. Drugs act differently in everybody, and the useful duration might increase with use.
