    Here in Southern Ontario we are having an extreme heat wave (temp 33 C, degrees, humidex 43 C according to the radio).

    Under these conditions, do we metabolize the meds faster?  I’m thinking because  we perspire and drink a lot of fluids whether this effectively “flushes out” the meds quicker. Or because we loose so much water through persperation, we end up concentrating the meds instead.

    Or is it we are feeling the effect of the weather the way neuro-typicals do. General lethargy, inability to focus, and irritability, etc.

    Just wondering…..

    Ha! You mean I’m not the only one who threw the “to-do” list out the window when I saw the forecast for this week? *melt, type, melt*
