It's been a week since I almost died, from serotonin syndrome/toxicity (please look it up, it's a thing, and fortunately, I can live to educate others of what I learned from just experience) , and it's been a week since I informed OPA of it, via voicemail (no one answered the phone) and also via email. Requested a stat appt to discuss changing my medication prior to the weekend since I had this reaction, (and it's never good to just go off medication) I'll have you know...I did receive an email back at 5:40 pm that the provider ( Esther Ofokansi ) was informed and would call me no later than the next day.
