The only side effect I experienced was insomnia...a small price to pay!

Other than that it has to be some ones idea of a cruel joke.

I was prescribed this medication for poison ivy, and after taking it for two days the poison ivy was drying up!I was thrilled, but didn't know that I would have severe cramps(below the waist)! That wasn't listed as a side effect. BIG MISTAKE!
