Most people who write to me about their experience with different pills stopped taking them. Only a few claim significant improvement in fluency or secondaries.
The cost-adjusted outcome is the critical concept. Even if your outcome is positive, you must be aware of the following costs associated to pills.
1) You have financial costs for the rest of your life.
2) You might experience side effects for the rest of your life.
3) You could face serious unknown side effects after long-term use.
4) You have to take the pills for the rest of your life.
5) You are dependent on the pills for your well-being for the rest of your life.
6) You are not cured of your stuttering.
7) If you don't take them for a while, you might even stutter worse than before until the neurotransmitter levels have settled.
8) You know that the pill has succeeded, and not you yourself.
9) They might interfere with other medication, especially for psychoactive compounds, and your doctor's options might be restricted. At worst, you need to stop taking them.
10) You might develop tolerance after a few months or years.
