I discovered i had a severe problem with energy after one of the medicines I was taking for a blood pressure/cholesterol problem

Foolishly, I stopped the medication as I experimented with getting my energy back.

I did find the culprit and got my energy back. I did this without consulting my cardiologist as he was the one that had scuttled my energy

I ended up with permanent heart damage and CHF not debilitating and other than knowing I screwed up and seeing it on my echos it is well under control etc.

But long story short. Be real careful about stopping meds quickly and without a doc looking over your shoulder.

From reading your posts in general, I expect you are wiser than I was, you seem pretty thorough, but just sharing the human ability to act really stupidly might assist someone somewhere.
