    I have bad side effects with this medication. I have to take laxatives nearly every night just to go to the bathroom. Mouth is dry, eyes are dry, I take eye drops for dry eyes., vision get blurry. Told this to my Doctor, was told to take stool softner. I think I should be taken off this medication.
