I am making sure to stay hydrated as well.

My mother nearly died yesterday from taking this stupid drug. she had an allergic reaction which saw her go into anafalactic (sp) shock. Living out of town took the ambulance over a half hour to reach her and she was already feeling like she was going to die. Doctors just released her saying she was a very lucky lady to have survived...She will be on natural remedies from now on!!!!!!!

Comment:
I took one pill of this 100 mg, it never reduced my fever and gave me a severe headache. I had taken it with food and am drinking plenty of water. I stopped after that one pill and read the reviews online, so won't take this med again. I plan to tell the doctor monday never to put anyone on this. I will report this to the FDA, since the company did not test this enough before releasing the dru ... Show Full Comment
