    I have only been taking this med for about a month. I have found that I am extremely tired and have a lot of pain in my right shoulder. This may be from other problems, but I am not sure. I will try for a little longer-probably 3 months and then have my cholesterol checked along with the liver function test. Based on those findings, I will make a decision about furhter treatment.
