Cleared my head and throat but extremely glad to have taken the last dose as my heart rate is accelerated at times and I have experienced pain in my elbow and arms and hands: areas of arthritis and such enhanced. As I have finished the pills I feel this should lessen.

After taking one dose of 500 mg, I began to have an awful metallic taste in my mouth along with nausea. It has also prevented me from sleeping, which I never had a problem with before. It's been 24 hours, and the bad taste is still there along with light headedness. I would never take this medication again.
