This weekend, I started the eleven-day protocol for the washout of Aubagio from my system.
I’m starting this protocol with a lower dose of Questran (4 mg.) for the first couple of days. So far, this elimination protocol has been tolerable. I’ve only had some mild abdominal pain.
I fully expect that I might have somewhat more severe symptoms during the remainder of the washout, since my Questran dose will be doubled. I expect to resume this elimination procedure on those days that I don’t have to work, over the next ten days.
I’ve been busy this afternoon with reviewing resident’s medical records, prior to the completion of their initial psychological evaluations tomorrow. I always review residents’ pre-existing diagnoses, as well as all of their current medications, prior to meeting with them for the first time. I’m thankful that I can complete this task at home.
