Medication side-effects can seem unbearable at times: dry mouth, nausea, dizziness, constipation. Certain prescriptions can also increase our risks for developing chronic conditions like thyroid disease and diabetes. Three years ago, I decided that the pills’ side-effects weren’t worth the relief they brought, so I slowly weaned off all my medication. I then plummeted into a severe depression that ended up taking a far greater toll on my health than the nuisance of my drugs. You may be justifiably concerned about how your mood stabilizer and antidepressant are altering your biochemistry, but also consider the g...

Conclusions: This study highlights variations in longitudinal trajectories of HRQOL in patients with CAD. Despite overall improvements in HRQOL, about a quarter of our cohort experienced a significant decline in their HRQOL over the 5-year period. Understanding these HRQOL trajectories may help personalize prognostic information, identify patients and HRQOL domains on which clinical interventions are most beneficial, and support treatment decisions for patients with CAD.
