should I change my medicines over time, like will my body get used to them and they stop working for me?

      General not, but it’s medication specific. I would recommend asking your Pharmacist or Doctor about this for more specific medical advice in your situation. Good luck :)

      I've not had to change mine I've been on my meds for over a year. I'm on the lowest dose and it is working wonderfully. Depending on how your body works with meds you should be fine. Honestly I'd ask my Dr.

      It depends on the medication, but not normally. There may need to be changes in the dosage, but even that doesn't happen often. There ARE some meds that can cause tolerance and dependence, but most are more helpful and harmful. If you are worried about it though, I would talk to your doctor and they can help with the pros and cons of certain meds and the course of treatment moving forward

      I don’t think it’s a big issue, if you have found a combination of meds that work for you in most cases you can stay on them indefinitely. The only medication you can’t stay on I think is opioids they lose effectiveness over time and the risk of becoming dependent is real.

      If there are problems, change it up. If it's not broke, don't fix it 👍🏼

      Some people naturally build up a tolerance to certain meds. My mom and sister have this problem. I don’t though so I’ve been on some of my meds for over a year.

      I haven't changed meds in over a year, just dosages.
