I took drugs properly when I was pregnant and during breastfeeding. After that and as of today I have a lot of responsibilities that I have to wake up at 4 am and I easily forget the morning dose. But it happened when the child was around one year that I stopped taking drugsā€¦..not a single pill for almost 6 months. I even stopped coming to the clinic. I felt that I was cured. I had gained significant weight and thought I was now ok. I also traveled to Bagamoyo and Tanga for business purposes. Then I had to bring the child to the clinic. They asked me why I had disappeared and was not taking drugs. I had no good reason. Pregnancy and breastfeeding motivation to adherence. Ensure baby was safe.
Responsibilities make it easy to forget and even stop taking drugs. Busy
Forget to take drugs
Stopped coming to the clinic as I felt cured Feeling well
