For me?? Once a year would seem about right. Unless of course any new symptoms and/or a significant increase in severity of some old symptoms occurs. But it depends.. some Dr's might want to see some people every 6 months... I have a script for an antispasmodic and I do have D everyday.. plus I have other health issues, so my Dr wants me in there every 6 months. He will only give me 6 months worth of my antispasmodic... and other meds... so he is comfortable with 6 months.He does bloodwork and always checks for dehydration etc.. So, generally speaking,I would think if nothing changes.. every 6 months to a year would probably be sufficient. But each of us have different needs so a discussion with one's Dr about how often is necessary may help make it clear what is best for each of us.
