I seem to remember - maybe it was your task to make it a really trying trial for the researchers ? Now getting thrown off through your uncontrollable urgent desire to get rid of that Barbra Streisand nose ?
As you're finding, it can be quite complex. Sometimes "better" means an improvement in the main target symptom ( eg Depression ) sometimes the side-effects make one feel less "better" over-all.
And if you were already feeling pretty good on nothing, there would be no room for the new experimental treatment to improve on that. I'm surprised, though, that they couldn't tell your doctor, or rather the anaesthetist, what other meds you were taking, without telling you.
Pleased to hear Charne is doing so well. I think personal direct attention and gentle repetition can bring about improvements not seen in less caring settings.
The cat needs an Op. She came to be from a ahcrity and had supposedly been speyed, and a small incisional hernia suggested there had indeed been an op ; but when she went on heat, we realised the visiting vet had not actually removed her ovaries. And then they're harder to find among scar tissue, so I decided to put up with it when it was 7-10 days of madness every 2 months. But before Christmas she went on heat, and has remained this passionate cactus ever since, with only a few days pause now and then.
And stop bragging about your age - compared to me, you're barely out of your teens
