I see, I would ask your GP again. Taking a medication regular for the rest of your life is quite a big thing, if you are not comfortable with it I think another opinion would be wise. If it was the same outcome, you are more likely to feel comfortable in taking the medication.
It is indeed a lot to take. I hope all goes well and wish you best of luck with this.
