    Been on this drug for short time and current taking 600mgs in the am, 900 mgs in the early afternoon, and 900 mgs in the pm. I get pretty foggy in the early pm, the pain is greatly reduced in my L arm. I haven't had any other probs w/ this drug. I haven't noticed any weight gain yet but have been cycling 4-5 times a week.
