I would say not to worry about changing the newsletter to monthly - you clearly have a busy life and the fact that you produce any newsletter is great! In terms of side effects, the strangest one I have known is pregabalin increasing yawning frequency. When I was taking it, I yawned a lot more than normal for the first few days. Thank you for your explanation of aspartame’s new classification!

Thanks, Janine. Quality over quantity and all that!

That’s a very strange side effect – hadn’t heard of that one before. And in looking it up I’ve learned the word “somnolence” (a state of strong desire for sleep) which I can very much identify with!
