    Started taking this medication on 9/21/08. The second evening I had a drug reaction, I felt extreme bone pain in my chest just turning my head, trouble breathing. It was less in the morning, and did go away after that day. I reported it to my Dr. who didn't seem to be too worried, since I had gotten over it. I am on my 3rd dose, so will not know if it's effective for one year.

I told my doctor that he doesn't have enough mo ... Show Full Comment
