Advice & Tips: Mental changes are not always recognizable by behavioral changes. Be cautious about using any medication that does not warrant use by evident and observable differences and do not remain on them in order to "let the body get adjusted". We always thought we were surely NOT one of the "30%" due to experience mental changes UNTIL we started into the undeniable mental difficulties in 2000.
