    Had a bad reaction to this medication. My body was trembling along with high temperature, profusely hot sweats and lethargic. Never felt so poorly. Slept for most of the day as felt that weak.

    I ran out of my pills and haven't had the chance to swing by the pharmacy to pick up more. It's been about a week now without the pill and I have can't stop itching. This is a withdraw side effect and it is the WORST!

    This drug made me EXTREMELY tired, lathargic and depressed. I was taking it once a day at night and I was sleeping 12 hours minimum and couldn't function during the day. Not worth the benefits.
