    Seem to feel better if I could only get past the awful taste that comes with this drug. First time I ever had it prescribed...last time I will ever take it. Only on day 3...hope I can make it to day 10 before I flush them. The taste thing does seem to fade after 24 hours but them it's time to take more. :-(
