      Sometimes it takes a little time for the drs to get the right medicine for you. Be patient. And be easy with yourself! Make sure to eat drink fluids and if showers are too much try washing up with a wet cloth. One day at a time!!!!

      I tried several before I found one that worked. Give it some time

      Keep trying new meds but also be patient as they can take weeks/ months to work.

      My medication too a couple months to really work for me. I always recommend people ask their doctor about doing a gene test I think that’s also helpful in knowing which medicine to try next. Definitely let your doctor know and request to switch to a new medication or up the dosage if it’s been over a month or two and you haven’t seen any form of progress.

      My doctor is still trying me with new meds. Because when one starts working for me then it stops. Have them do the mouth swab it will tell you what works best for you
