Sorry I didn't realize that you had replied, I must have forgotten to turn notification on with my last post.
The medication that I consider "must-take" is thyroid hormone. Even on the med I'm still very, very hypo (I should get some test results this week to see if I'm any closer to range.) I'm not sure that continuing it would affect a fast too much. As far as the fast affecting it, it would probably just increase the effect of the med (since some foods inhibit proper uptake).
The new med that I could probably skip if it's necessary is an antidepressant. I wasn't eager to start it, but my PTSD has been getting worse so I thought I'd give it a try.
Thank you so much for the kind sentiments concerning the loss of my mom. Hugs.
