The drug is great IF you have no side effects. But if you do your life will be made a living hell. I lost my taste after 60 days on the drug. I could not eat. I could not participate in life. Water tasted like saltwater. An overpowering bitter taste took over. I had extreme dry mouth. Had I stayed in that condition I would have taken my own life. Thankfully it wasn't permanent and I n ...

Have been taking this drug for almost 4 weeks. My feet seem softer to the touch but haven't seen much change in the toenails. The side effects and the way I feel is what concerns me. My joints seem to ache and I am so tired all I want to do is sleep. I am so tempted to go off this drug altogether. By reading all the review it seems the side effects show is some people and not others.

I am losing weight but I am completely miserable. No energy at all. I am hoping my tas ... Show Full Comment
