I have to agree with Lenin. And, yes for "me" taking TopolXL makes me feel 20 years older. Been on this med since 8/2004. Have to call a maid to clean the house as I am tooooooooooooo tired to do anything. Well, for the past 2 days, I did not take my Topol as I needed to see if it was the meds or "me". Yesterday, I had sooo much energy, I vaccummed and baked and took sheers off windows, washed them and re-hung, took a long walk in the park with my 4 year old grandaughter riding her trike and I planted Spring flowers. "Me" was back. The doctor got a call yesterday afternoon. Yes, I do believe this med for "me" slows down many other processes as well.
Talk with your doctors.
