    Within a couple of days of starting the medication, I began having headaches and upper respiratory issues. I took the drug for 2 weeks & discontinued as the side effects were becoming debilitating. Within 24-36 hours of discontinuing the drug, the side effects went away.

    taken for one month in efforts to control out of control blood sugar levels. Immediately noticed increased thirst to the point it became severe - me carrying a 32 ounce glass full and drinking it constantly (up to two gallons a day of liquid) and yeast infection appeared. Changed medication to another brand. Was not a good experience at all! Weight gain because of excessive fluid intake.
