Not Fair: Every person is a different element that we have to figure out what works best for your body. You might have to try a few different medications before you find which works best for you! don't give up after just one med doesn't work. What works for one patient might not for another with the same condition. It's what makes us unique and what makes being a doctor so confusing.
